I'll post both projects when I'm done, but I think most brides like to keep their invites special for the invitees, so those'll probably have to wait till the wedding is over.
I just got done with all kinds of crazy wedding stuff in September, when a close friend of mine got married and now I'm jumping into more as my sister's very short engagement rapidly approaches the wedding date. I shared the funky bronzer story from my friend's rehearsal dinner, but what I didn't share was the torture of trying on bridesmaid dresses.
If you've ever been in a wedding you know that the dress shops do not carry every size for you to see what actually looks good on you. They carry each dress in maybe two or three sizes, so like... an 8 and a 22. Maybe. Maybe just the 8. So if you're a 14 like me, you just have to cram yourself in the 8 and guess if it might look nice on you if it were to be the correct size. No one at the dress shop ever understands why this is problematic. Why would you care if you look good in a dress you're shelling out $150 bucks for? You're only wearing it once, right?
I looked halfway decent in my dress last time, but I gained a bit of weight in the couple weeks before the wedding, which wasn't enough to have an effect on my everyday clothes, but did mean the top of my dress wasn't as um...secure...as it had been originally. Good times. This time I get to pick my dress and it will have straps, blast it.
What's your favorite/funniest bridesmaid (or groomsmen) fiasco?
