What would we have done without Isabelle? She suggested that we look for my dress in the little Ontario town of Moosecreek at a store called "Chez Ginette".

Isabelle, Joanne, Mom & I headed out one Saturday in July 2006 to check things out. Off a two-lane backcountry road was this store located next to an out-of use gas station. Not our idea of bridal shopping - "St-Hubert street anyone?" rolled through my mind.

When we pulled into the parking lot there were Mercedes, BMWs, etc. with QC & ON plates. The fancy city people had landed... looking for deals. This was a goldmine of white silk, satin & lace.

With my trusty 'gal pals' I tried on many many dresses. We had alot of fun trying them on, and the after 1 & 1/2 hours we found THEE one! Here are some photos of the 'could have beens'. The one at the bottom right came in #2; a lovely raw silk Afred Sung strapless creation. Gorgeous... but not quite right.

Can you guess what the real dress will be like?

After the shopping extravaganza, Joanne invited Isabelle, Mom & I to join her at a fundraising Steak BarBQ that Bobbie Hall was organizing. It was such a wonderful day with so many splendid memories!!!
