With only a little bit of notice, I raided my paypal account to afford a beautiful gown. My horses must have gotten wind of it, because two days before I went shopping, my mare went through a barbed-wire fence. Her vet bill ended up being exactly the amount I had saved for the dress! Oh well, I said, money is no object: credit cards are there for “emergencies” like this. About a week before the wedding, I went into town with two requirements of my dress: nothing strapless, and it must fit right off the rack (no time for alterations here!). The dress I found is a lovely satin gown with 1920s-style beading.
