She Said YES to the Dress!

Last summer Precious Daughter and her Handsome Beau became engaged.  
Since then, lots of plans have been made including the wedding and reception venues, photographers, flowers and decorations, food and cake, etc., etc.,
Precious Daughter has been looking at wedding dresses but wasn't ready to commit to one until she felt she had seen them all!
Handsome Beau's mother is from the Memphis area and told her of a wedding store in Brinkley, Arkansas named Low's.  We made plans to visit this past weekend.

Precious Daughter's mother-in-law to-be, welcomed us to her lovely home Friday afternoon then showed us around town.  We went to several fun shops and boutiques and had a delicious dinner at an Italian restaurant.  We were treated quite royally!

Early the next morning, we headed to Low's.  Brinkley, AR, is a small town but this store was huge and had tons of bridal dresses!

PD set about finding gowns to try on.
Low's was having a sale that weekend so there were lots of young ladies trying on dresses too!

PD had narrowed down the styles she was looking for so here are a few gowns 
that met her expectations.

Isn't she gorgeous?!!
I can't show the dress she chose but the good news is she DID say 
YES to one dress and it's on order!  

We had such a good time together watching her try all of these beautiful gowns on!  

I'm so glad Precious Daughter's mother-in-law to-be suggested this store.  

She also told us something that really touched my heart.  She said when her boys were babies and crying at night, she would just rock them and pray that their future wives' parents were rocking and loving on them, too.  What a beautiful prayer!!  
I think Precious Daughter is a lucky young lady to have a new 
The excitement continues to mount but at least she can check 
another (REALLY BIG) item off of her list!

Thanks for stopping by!

I recently spent a long weekend in LA, California on a wedding dress search with the daughter of one of my close friends. It was such a special, fun time together. Our bride said yes to a dress too. '-) I took lots of photos of the weekend and hope to put together a book to give to the bride. Not certain how I'll put it together just yet. ;-)
Thanks for sharing this fun time. Congratulations to your daughter and her beau.
