LILAC AND LACE
Here's where it all started- well, actually many years before. When my girls were younger, our Friday nights consisted of "Say Yes to the Dress," and dreaming about what each of their weddings would be like. I secretly prayed that I would not be like one of the mothers on that show- arguing with their daughters about princess dresses versus mermaid versus trumpet gowns. And then the big day finally came- I flew into Atlanta, my other daughter caught a train from Greenville, SC, and we all met up at a sweet boutique shop filled with beautiful dresses and vintage mirrors leaning against perfectly painted walls. Our budget wasn't much- not because we couldn't afford more, but we were all bargain shoppers and didn't want to spend much. And then my daughter came out in a wedding dress- and she was so beautiful. When she came out in her third gown and put on a cathedral veil the whole shop got quiet- it was so perfect. We bought that $200 gown with the lace overlay and celebrated by going to Starbucks- best day ever!
