When I announced that one of my (much) younger sisters is getting married, I also shared the fact that I have never been a bridesmaid…once a bride, and always guestbook girl or wedding singer. But THIS YEAR, for the very first time, I will be.
Yes, I’m kind of excited.
Actually, I am a lot excited.
And I am even more thrilled for my sister.
Of course this means I need to get a dress.
Serious stuff bridesmaid dress shopping is. After I was registered and the bride’s information was verified, I was escorted to my own dressing room by my own bridal party consultant with a number of dresses ready for me to try on. The sign is a nice touch but I’m not so sure about the “BM” being a nurse and all…that “BM” means something completely different to me!
My sister decided to let her bridal party choose the dress that suits each of us best in the colors she has chosen so I had several dresses to try on. Of course I brought along some experts with a good eye: Hollie and Fallon…because she is so fancy…you already know! I can trust them both to tell me if a dress is perfect and makes my butt look awesome or if I look like I am wearing one of Jodie’s prom dresses.
And they did.
But you know, bridesmaid dress shopping with your Mima is so much more fun when you get to try on a few dresses yourself just for fun.
And so you do.
Fallon and Hazel both will be flower girls for Ange and the most adorable dresses have been chosen already for them. But being the sweetheart that she is, Ange asked me if we found any dresses for the girls there that we like better.
Fallon wants this one…in this color!
We’re sticking with the dresses the lovely bride has chosen because they will be perfect.
Oh, and we found the perfect dress for me too. Stay tuned…August 8, 2015.
