- Wedding: August 2013
I am an indecisive bride. I have sent my two MOH (I have two sisters who I couldn’t decide between, so I have two MOH) the dresses that I have looked at for them and my 4 other girls. One sister/MOH will say she loves the dress, the other will hate it. Or they will both hate it. They then tell me that it is MY wedding, and I must choose what I like. Well, I have everything from a size 4 to a size 20 in the wedding, so I’m a bit flustered about picking this. The bridesmaid dress is the most stressful part of this, so far.
Initially I was going to do cobalt blue dresses. Then I realized how limited that color selection puts me, so I decided on black dresses. I am not a fancy person, and my FI and I both want a casual affair. But we are getting married in a Catholic church, so I don’t want it to be too casual. And I want all my bridesmaids’ “twins” covered (or at least tasteful) because it’s a bit more respectful of the church.
So, here is my dress. Now, this choice could change because I am in the process of losing major weight (20 #s down so far, 60 more to go!). If I lose so much weight that the dress can’t be altered down, I will have to get something else. But, I’d rather be healthy than stay obese for a dress. Anywho…here we go. I’m 6’0″ by the way, so the dress is shorter on me than others.
And here is the eShakti dress that I am tossing around for my bridesmaids, which I’d pair with cobalt heels and hopefully cobalt drop earrings:
Do they work together? If you don’t think so, do you have any other ideas? My colors are black, gray, and cobalt blue. The guys are wearing gray suits with black ties (or cobalt ties, I can’t decide and my FI won’t decide).
I need to make a decision on color and cut and design because my FI wants one soon so he can make a decision on what suit he likes. Help!!!
(Sorry this is long and drawn out, and sorry that the pictures are so large. I’m at work, and there’s nothing but Microsoft Paint here. I should be working…)
