Today’s Real East Carolina Bride entry comes to us from Megan, a bride whose Corolla wedding is coming up in June 2017.
Once my fiancé and I had decided on a date and the venue, my next big step was to buy the dress. When I was looking at what kind of dress I wanted I did a lot of online “shopping”. However, when it came the day to try it on, I decided to be as open minded as possible. I knew I wanted something flowy since we would be getting married at the beach and I had an idea of what I thought would look good on me, but I wanted to let the professionals do their job. I decided to go dress shopping in Raleigh, NC because it was a good middle meeting spot for my mom and myself, but it was also where my fiancé’s parents lived. I decided very early on, when I go dress shopping I wanted the following people with me: my mom, my grandma, my fiancé’s mom, his grandma, my aunt, and cousin.
