Queen Elizabeth led Dawn into the local seamstress' shop so that they could select a fabric for Dawn's wedding gown.
The shop owner greeted them with a cheery "Good morning, Your Majesty, Dawn. What can I do for you today?"
"We want to look at several yards of your best white fabrics, and best hand tatted lace. We have to make the most beautiful gown for her upcoming nuptials." Queen Elizabeth replied.
The shop owner led them to several bolts of white fabric. They ranged in colors from the purest white to the creamiest ivory. The Queen held up several samples of various bolts up to Dawn to see what would go best with her fair complexion.
Queen Elizabeth was finally satisfied with a sample that was a creamy ivory, which set off Dawn's complexion and flaxen hair beautifully.
"Dawn, what do you think of this Ivory color?"
"I think it makes me look beautiful. It highlights my fair complexion beautifully. I think it would be better if it was studded with some lovely pearls. Can I have pearls sewn onto it?
The shop owner said that it would be no problem but it could take anywhere from two weeks to a month. Dawn said that it would be fine.
The shop owner then led them to where he kept several bolts of the finest hand tatted lace in the kingdom. The Queen found a beautiful pattern of lace made up of roses in a creamy ivory that matched the material for the gown beautifully.
They purchased both materials and made arrangements for a seamstress to come out to the palace in about six weeks so that the most beautiful wedding gown could be made.
During the following six weeks, Queen Elizabeth was busy arranging the wedding ceremony. She decided that it would be held outside in the royal rose gardens, since she knew that the roses were Dawn's favorite flowers. The dinner would be held in formal dining hall.
The seamstress arrived with the material to make the gown, veil and undergarments. The seamstress met with the Queen to design the wedding gown. They settled on a simple Empire-styled gown with a low-cut square bodice that would should off Dawn's assets beautifully. The train would be several feet in length and would require an attendant to carry it.
Dawn was led into the fitting room so that she could be measured. Once the seamstress had them, Dawn was dismissed. The beautiful pearl studded fabric was then fashioned into a gown that was so beautiful that whoever gazed on it was left breathless.
The veil was made from the rose-patterned lace. It came down to Dawn's waist.
The seamstress also made the most beautiful undergarments. They complimented the gown splendidly.
The day of the wedding dawned a beautiful day. Dawn awoke, her stomach was filled with butterflies. She couldn't wait for the ceremony to be done with so that she could begin her life with the man that she loved with all her heart. She was glad that she decided to follow her heart and remain a woman, albeit with male organs. She could hardly wait to wear her gown it was simply beautiful. The seamstress did a wonderful job on the gown and its accessories.
Prince Christian was couldn't wait for the ceremony either. He too was looking forward to spending the rest of his life with Dawn. He just hoped that his mother's plans would work. He hoped that he could have a family of his own. He knew that Dawn would make a wonderful mother.
Queen Elizabeth awoke with a feeling of great satisfaction as her plans were finally being realized. She was glad that everything worked out for the best. She was also glad that Dawn was able to put the unpleasantness of what Alexander tried to do to her behind her.
The time for the wedding soon approached. The town folk were assembled to see their handsome young prince wed his beautiful bride.
The bride was so breathtakingly beautiful as she was guided through the arbor of roses. The King gave her away, since her own father was no longer living. Her mother was in attendance and her sister was her Maid of Honor.
The wedding was simple and beautiful; it would live in the memories of the townsfolk forever.
