Nope. It was a run of the mill salon about an hour away from her. She and her mother went there because they had "heard good things about their selection". Again, they did this when she was 20 and not even dating anyone--just randomly went wedding dress shopping. She got married four years later and has been married for over ten years. And she still loves to tell this story and tells it as if wedding dress shopping with no boyfriend or fiance is a perfectly normal activity.
My husband and I picked out my ring together. There is such a wide variety of sizes, shapes, and styles that he wanted to make sure it was exactly what I loved.
