I sit here surrounded by three men watching the Washington Redskins take on the Philadelphia Eagles. Seeking inspiration I asked  what was important to them as far as wedding gowns go. I was quickly shushed for talking about girl stuff during football time. Then, during the next commercial, they re-started the conversation without provocation. Is color important? What about sex-appeal? Are buttons with loops just plain mean? I couldn’t help but chuckle to myself as I listened to their gabbing about wedding dresses. It was actually the perfect man panel…I should take advantage of this. One is engaged, one is single, and one is married to me. I was too afraid to ask questions for fear of pointing out the fact that they were talking wedding during football, but here is what I was able to take away from their talk.

The dress actually is important to them. This surprised me since I figured they didn’t really notice it. As I listened on, I finally figured out why the dress was important to them. They too have been waiting for this moment a long time. They are crazy in love with you, and can’t wait to see you come down the aisle. They don’t want you in a dress that overpowers you. They want you in something that enhances you. Something that is your personality at its best, and something you feel beautiful in.

So, I guess…dress for them! It actually is a pretty smart way to think of things. Be a version of yourself on your big day…just a dressed up bridal version.

While this conversation was short lived…I found it helpful and a bit heartwarming. Now, if my Redskins could launch a major major comeback sitting with the three of them would be worth it!
