Wedding Dress Dreams
When a little girl dreams of one day becoming a bride, she starts to formulate what she will need to be the most beautiful bride in the world. As she grows up, she might start collecting pictures out of magazines of the dress she might want to wear. She might sketch exactly the elements she wants in her wedding dress. As she accompanies her friends and family to the bridal shops to pick out their wedding dresses, she is constantly on the lookout for her dress. She might even become an expert on wedding dress lace as she does her research. Knowing what a wedding dress can cost, she might have started saving for the dress of her dreams with her babysitting money as a young teenager. Families will put money aside for a daughter’s wedding for years as they anticipate what the eventual wedding will cost. They want their daughter to be able to say yes to the dress of her dreams when the time comes.
