I would like to preface this by saying that I hate , absolutely hate dress shopping. I am now the mother of the groom and went dress shopping with the mother of the bride ( a very dear friend of mine, yes, our children are getting married....to eachother). We made an appointment for saturday, we arrived and it was so busy we could barely move. Madeline took us upstairs which was quiet, just us and Madeline. I described to her what I was looking for in a dress, she brought out 4 or 5 dresses, all stunning. I fell in love with 2 of them, narrowed it down to one and I have to say this time dress shopping was PAINLESS@!...thank you Madeline..oh, btw, the mother of the bride also found a gorgeous dress.
