So, as I may have mentioned, I am going to be the Maid of Honor for one of my oldest and dearest friends. I haven't been posting many updates, because, well, I don't know why. The date has been set (September next year), as has the venue, and the bride has chosen a dress pattern (her mom is making it). We've started looking into flowers and such, though not too seriously yet. We're talking about bridesmaid dresses, and since she is practically the nicest person ever, she is insisting that we wear something we like and will actually want to wear again. No bridezilla here...not yet anyway (kidding, kidding). She's coming to visit in December (fingers crossed), so hopefully we'll get to do a little planning while she's here. Cupcake tasting, anyone? ;-)
In other bridey news, when I was home a few months ago, I went dress shopping with my other old and dear friend who is getting married next year (in June)...and we actually found her dress! It was a sample sale, so she even got to take it home that day. Ridiculous. Amazing. The dress is gorgeous, and just couldn't be more perfect for her. The color, the style...everything. I know they say that when you try on the right dress, you just know, but I had always been skeptical. Until that day. Man. She walked out in that dress, and I teared up. It was just...right. I'm so glad that I could be there to help find the dress, since I don't live nearby.
Also, there is this cute-looking bridal party shop near me that I always drive by on my way to Curves, and I called them for info on bridesmaid dresses today. They are so nice and helpful! Anyway, I was browsing their website, and then their blog, and I found this. GORGEOUS. Why is it so much fun to look at pretty wedding dresses? One picture below, just for your viewing pleasure. Ya know.

Hey now...I'M not the one getting married...but it is pretty!ReplyDelete
Gorgeous!!! Being maid of honor is pretty fun when the bride is not Bridezilla! I've had to do both (bridezilla and laid-back bride). Fun fun for you!ReplyDelete
Thanks, Belle. Any tips on a Maid of Honor speech? (I know you've solicited advice before...)ReplyDelete
Why is everyone getting married? Crazy. Anywho, I know what you mean about the dress thing. One of my friends made me burst into tears when I saw her it was so perfect. Which is odd, since I'm kind of a cynic. Whatever, she looked pretty.ReplyDelete
There's not much you can do about it, I think. At least for me, tears are inevitable.ReplyDelete
My BFF got married over Labor Day Weekend and I could barely keep my shit together when I saw her in her dress. So fun!ReplyDelete
Have fun with all the planning and tasting! :)
