Good afternoon. I hope your day is going as quickly as mine! Work is flyyyyying by and I think I’ve finally gotten a huge document ready for print. Yippee!
Around 9:00 AM, I snacked on some cantaloupe:
And for lunch, I made a baked tofu + sweet potato sammie. I drenched the tofu in Anne’s Organic BBQ sauce before baking…. divine!
On the side, I had a plum tomato + cucumber.
I love raw veggies. 🙂
And for dessert….
Wedding Details: Bridesmaid Dresses!
I have seven (yes, seven) lovely bridesmaids. One is a friend I’ve known since middle school, five are my college girlfriends, and one is Future Husband’s wonderful sister. They are all outrageously good-looking girls, and I really wanted them to all look beautiful on my wedding day.
So…. I let them choose their bridesmaid dresses! I picked out three styles in the same color and material (at David’s Bridal) and told each of them to pick their favorite style. I thought a mixture of dresses would look modern, but the same color + material would make it obvious everyone is part of the same ‘bridal party.’
Everyone but my maid of honor actually ended up picking the same dress! My MOH picked one with straps, and it actually works out perfectly because she’ll stand out a little more!
Here is the bridesmaid dress (modeled by me!):
The bridesmaid’s bouquets will include daises, green button mums, and green hydrangea viburnum. (The groomsmen are wearing pinstripe tuxes with the same yellow-colored tie and vest. They’ll have green button mum boutonnieres.)
Since we’re getting married outside, I thought a short dress for the bridesmaids would be ideal. Very Florida-ish, don’t you think!? (Our wedding has a Florida theme, as indicated on the invites!)
And I know every bride says this, but I actually think the girls will be able to wear their dresses again! One bridesmaid is already planning to wear it to a spring wedding she’s attending. Score!
Have you ever had to wear an ugly bridesmaid dress? Spill the details!
