This weekend, John’s sister Anna and her husband Cody came into town to stay with us. And, as Anna is one of my bridesmaids for our wedding in August, I thought we’d take some time to check out dress possibilities. We picked up my sister, Dana, who will also be a bridesmaid, and hit the mall. We brought Layla with us, so it was a lovely girls’ outing. We had a lot of fun together, and I was happy to see that Dana and Anna got pretty comfortable with each other pretty quickly. But, we didn’t have a lot of luck actually finding dresses. I thought it was be simple to find some fairly nice T-length dresses, hopefully in solid colors. Unfortunately everything is either floor-length evening wear, or super short. I tried on just about anything that was white or cream or ivory just to see if we could get away with a department store wedding dress (I’m a little non-traditional), but I hated how I looked in everything. I have some more weight to lose. I need a tan. And I wish I was about 3 or 4 inches taller.
But, whatever, this is the body God gave me, and I always knew I was no super model. If we can’t find anything nice in a store, my mom and I are going to make my dress. And by that I mean, Mom will make the dress while I watch my little brother and sister. :) I’m hoping for T-length for me as well, with a sort of 40s look, and hopefully and vintage hat with the netting in front instead of a traditional veil. John wants zoot suits for the guys, so I think this should go together fairly well. But bringing my vague vision into reality is turning out to be more difficult than I thought.comments powered by Disqus
