MOH - The Dress

Probably the key ingredient to being in someone's wedding is the dress. Never has there been such an item of potential controversy that cause women to go from being BFFs to being cats in a bag. Women are so excited to be in the wedding, and often offended if they are NOT in the wedding - but goodness gracious the fights, grumbling, and NONSENSE that exists once the discussion of the bridesmaid dress begins. Wow.


Luckily! I have a fabulous bride. She only had a few requests that we all choose a dress the same length (knee, tea, floor...) and that we get it at David's Bridal (so the color matched: peridot.) I can handle that. Not a problem! So I took my color option to David's Bridal while my mom was in town (helpful to watch my little man) and started trying on my options. And I found the one that best fits my body, you see my little man only is eating on one side.... (nuff said) and this dress does best to downplay that fact, and as a bonus it's cute!

Sent a picture to the bride-to-be and she said she loved it! YAY! How easy was that! Whew. I never had a doubt, Bec is so easy going and we have similar tastes - well maybe not similar but we know what looks good on the other one. We've been friends for 19 years. :) So the dress has been decided and will be purchased in a few weeks. It will look delightful with my new shoes!

If you want drama...try having the bride change her date AFTER the fact that you've gone to great trouble and expense to change your vacation plans to accommodate being in their wedding, begged your boss to get time away, bought the dress, bought your tickets.....only to have her change the date with you being stuck with flights, a dress and no other options or extra money to change it. Not to mention coming out was used on your wedding money you had saved in lou of home furnishings. Ugh..so far my only BM experiences have been without even being in the wedding!
