Dress, Given XIII by Meg Keene It’s time for one of the best parts of APW…. passing on a Sisterhood of the Traveling Dress to a brand new bride. I’m delighted that Megan is passing her quirky, lovely, dress to CJM. I think you’ll agree it’s going to the perfect new home. CJM said: I am in love with this dress… and all the reasons you bought it and loved it. I am a 5′4″, 34DD dirt-poor medical student. Along with my amazing fiancee, I am trying to plan and finance a wedding that is as casual and laid-back as we are, but will still be a rockin’ good time for the many, many loved ones we are blessed to have in our lives. It’s totally stressful! Like you, I love imagining all the little details of just about everything… everything BUT my dress. I don’t have a vision in mind, I have never had a “dream dress” to go after… but yours. is. absolutely. gorgeous. And I would be over the moon not to have to shop for one myself. So CJM, email me! We’ll put you in touch with Megan and make the magic happen. And we can’t wait to see you in the dress as a wedding graduate (pretty please?). All of Team Practical wishes you a wedding that’s a living eulogy, and a party that’s a lovely afterglow, and an amazing, brave marriage.
