    Ok, so I have bored you all to death with wedding talk and when we got flooded...but this is weird!

    I was walking down Main Street in Cockermouth on Saturday with my Mum and as we walked past the wedding shop, the owner came out. We stopped to chat and ask her how the shop was doing and she invited us upstairs to their second 'shop dressing area' (luckily they had it so can keep trading).

    There were about 20 new gowns already sent from one designer...but she then pointed to one gown hanging alone on a rail.

    MY DRESS. The ONLY dress that's survived the floods!

    Sounds silly but I felt emotional - didn't think I'd see it again until my dress was made in over a year!

    Mum said it's a sign!

    :D

    P.S I thought I better clarify...it's not some magical gown or anything - she had it hung separately from the others as she'd been fixing it (hope my fat bum didn't break it lol). It was right away from the others...which all got ruined...but I'm still impressed it's survived lol ;) xxx

    AH that is lovely!

    I picked up my wedding dress last week and my bridesmaid dresses on Saturday. I don't get married until May!! It is horrible to think MY wedding dress is at my mum and dads and I am not allowed to put it on!!

    Me too! It was so weird to see it all pristine and lovely. I actually got teary eyed in the shop.

    Plus, I can try it on again in April when they take my measurements to have it made and pick the right veil and shoes out to match (like I need any excuse to wear it lol).
