But what does it mean? Well, picture this: Just as I am about to help the bride get dressed and participate in the accompanying photo op, the zipper of my dress splits open and can't be fixed because the pull is inexplicably stuck. So, instead of helping I got to hang out in the bathroom while a very pregnant wedding planner and the mother-of -the bride used what was available (black thread) to sew me into my dress.
Faulty zipper!? Oh the irony! This was, I am sorry to admit, a Dress of the Month Club fail. [ sad trumpet ] Next time I make a dress for an important event, I am going to wear it to do housework a few times. Just as a trial run.
I am thankful for a few things, though. First, that the zipper gave before the wedding started. And second, that Carolyn is such an easy going person (even on her wedding day) and didn't seem to mind that I was causing a whole mess of drama.
Also, I am thankful to Carolyn and Antonio for including me in their big day. They are very special and wonderful people who will, I have no doubts, enjoy a while lifetime of laughter.
Felicitaciones por u dia de la boda!
