Becoming a Wife – the Wedding Dress

Today I helped my friend find her wedding dress.  Just two married gals with an engaged one.  We had a blast! 

The dress is symbolic of so many pieces of the wedding.  For some it’s the realization of a fairy tale she’s dreamed for all all her life; for others, a unique expression of herself as she unites with another.  When my friend looked in the mirror and said “this is the one, can I call my mom?” I almost started crying.  I wonder how her mother experienced the phonecall.  She lives too far away to have come shopping with her daughter, and yet her immediate request for pictures and a description spoke of her longing to be there with us.  The moment seemed almost too intimate to be a part of.  But I’m so thankful we were.
