We live in a period of instant gratification. I mean it's great to be able to order something and have waiting for you at your door the next day or a few days later. But isn't it nice to know that on such an important occasion and milestone in your life, that your dress is lovingly put through a thoughtful process, made locally and independently in the hands of people who genuinely care that you look beautiful and your absolute best on your big day? To me it's a metaphor for relationships in a way, especially in our day and age. Patience and time is almost becoming obsolete in the sea of now's. I'd like to see everything slow down a bit, appreciation for care and quality to resurface, and for us to look around and appreciate the process.
