How my random act became a devious plan

As many of you know, I got engaged several months ago. To my surprise, both of my parents immediately became obsessed. My dad had dreams about who should be invited. My mom had lists of lists. I became more laid back about the whole deal. :)

One night while I was home, Say Yes to the Dress came on. Mom came in and watched it with me. She was astonished at how much people were paying for dresses. (I think one girl had a budget of $5,000.) Apparently, Mom was also hooked on the show. A month ago, I found out she'd even gotten Dad to watch an episode or two with her. This is a major deal; my father only watches sports, stocks and the Weather Channel. Dad told me he couldn't believe how snooty all the sales girls were on the show. Both of them watched the premiere of Say Yes to the Dress Atlanta (the shop is about ten minutes from our house).

Yesterday, I went dress shopping. I'd gone once in Atlanta with Mom, but hadn't decided on anything yet. I had time and the urge to try on dresses, so I went by myself. I found a dress I liked, snapped some photos and emailed them home. Here's a sneak peek.


The dress is a bit more than I wanted to spend. Here comes the devious plan. By watching Say Yes to the Dress, Dad has become hardened to the costs of wedding dresses. Anything under $5,000 seems like a good deal to him! (This dress is WAY under that.)

Stay tuned to see if I buy this dress!
