Good Luck guys, hope they are all beautiful weddings!!
Just a tip and a wedding rant...
I'm helping my BFF plan hers, she is doing an excellent job, but when it comes to our dresses... ARRGGGHHHH!!!
I went last week to get fitted and buy my dress AND shoes for her, which I think is the thing to do now? Oh my heavens, it's the ugliest, most unflattering dress I've ever seen. She also didn't include me or one of the other BM's to check them out.
I was heartbroken. Since I didn't have a large wedding I thought (and planned a date and talked to her about) the idea that we would all get together for lunch, have drinks, try on dresses, the whole shebang. Nope. She went with her sister who is a size 0, let her decide and then informed us in a text. $250 later (Ouch, they HAD to be ordered ASAP right after Christmas?? Nice planning.) I'm going to have the most hideous dress (seriously thought that was an outdated wedding stereotype, I would never do such a thing), and purple platform shoes my kid is going to receive once I'm done. Honestly I think it's tacky to not consider us (or our body types) when picking out the dresses. I might able to rock mine after I loose a few, but one of the girls texted me when she was getting hers and said she looked like a hermaphrodite... Poor girl!!
So maybe this rant will be a help for you lovely brides? Best wishes!!!
You can get a lot further with a ladder than you can with crutches!! What do you mean what do I mean?
