The Usual Suspects
Tuesday, April 20, 2010
I told K8 that I am going to blog about her wedding planning like it is my own (since I am her MOH and my own is not in the Google calendar any time soon.) Two of her other bridesmaids, K8's mom, and I all drove to Charlotte to take advantage of the fab dress boutiques. I am in L-O-V-E with the dresses. K8's wedding is on New Year's Eve so we were looking for formal, floor length, black gowns. She also mentioned that it would be awesome if we had a few different styles. Those were really her only requirements. She has been the complete anti-bridezilla.
We went to 3 different stores and came back empty handed (and full wallet-ed). K8's wonderful mom suggested a beverage break. Here is what ensued:
Needless to say, we ended up finding the perfect dresses in the next store. I would say I think it was the wine, but holy moly, I still LOVE these choices. Each girl found a dress that was perfect for her. This is what I will be wearing:
The back is to die for. It sold me on this black beauty.
Two gals are going to wear this fantastic one shoulder piece:
This is where we tie in the ruffles on my dress. Imagine this in all black:
And another mention of a bow, but this time in an A-line dress. This picture doesn't do this dress justice:
These choices are so great, especially for girls with all different body types. I have been lucky lately with the weddings I have been in. Contrary to popular belief, a girl can really like a bridesmaid dress. :)
