The Big Question

We got out of the car together and he took off my left shoe and then asked me to marry him and when I said yes he put it back on, well i love shoes!

Shop 'Til You Drop

I was in Kansas city for 3 months only, I was determined to find my dress, every weekend I would wake up and go to 6 or 7 appointments and 2 weeks before I had to leave, I gave up because I had been to all the stores in Kansas city.

The dresses were all good but not special to me. A week before I found my dress I was browsing through Facebook and found an Ad of Altar bridal in Kansas State, which is an hour and half away. So I said to myself, I can go and check it out whilst in the mindset of a desprate bride-to-be who she knows that she will never find what suits her.

I was there at 8 AM and they opened at 8.30. With a lot of brides-to-be outside; some were looking through the glass from outside so they could run and pick up the one they like. I went in and picked up the only dress that caught my eye and was full of flowers, which was exactly what I was looking for, a “ floral embroided magical dress”. I had no one with me. My mom and my bestfriend were back in Egypt, so I had to call them video and send them pictures for 4 hours. I was very overwhelmed so I cried while in the dress.

My challenge was that I am Hijabi and I wanted to cover up the dress. So the store was very helpful and called Augusta Jones to make sure that they could agree on the design and to ship extra embroidered flowers. Then my dream came true and I walked out in full tears of happiness.

Wise Words

Be open to new options to try on and don’t take too many people with you, just one or two. Also, don’t settle for a dress.. Start by trying all styles and cuts and choose the one that defines your beauty, then go for the color and material . It’s your day and you should be happy.
