Starring at bridal magazines can be difficult when trying to pick a dress, but not if you live in China. One of my friends is getting married in a few months and she has been searching for the perfect dress on Pinterest.

My other friend got married a few months ago and knew a lady that makes very good dresses, so Saturday we braved the outing to the market. We were relieved that it was such an easy process. She took her wedding gown picture, the lady asked her a few questions, and then took her measurements. My friend decided she liked the entire dress instead of using the top of one dress and the bottom of another. She was so relieved that it was over and that it was much cheaper than a dress in the States would cost.

I am in her wedding and needed to have a dress made as well. I had my dress picked out at least a month before she did. She made her final choice the night before we went to the fabric market. Anyways, my dress has magenta lace for the top part of the dress and then a plain magenta bottom. I think it is going to look lovely. Since I was there, I decided to have a coral spring/summer dress made as well.

We get to pick up our dresses in one month. So exciting!
