So, this actually happened the weekend before thanksgiving but I’ve had NO time until now to post about it…so my sister was making a short visit to California from Georgia the weekend before Thanksgiving and I decided to make the most of it and get all my BMs together for a little dress trip. Although the wedding is 18 months away, my sister doesn’t get many chances to visit so I thought it was the perfect opportunity.
We started with lunch at my house, which gave all the girls a chance to get to know each other. It was my 4 sisters, best friend, and FIs sister, along with my and FI moms. My fiancés SIL ended up getting sick and couldn’t make it which sort of bummed me out, but I made sure to text her throughout the day. We went to our appointment around 3 and the girls had fun trying on dresses, even joking around some. I ended up choosing between two dresses, one that I thought about from the beginning, and one that was similar with slight differences. All the girls agreed that they preferred the 2nd one, which I ended up being fine with since it made them all happy. We found out that the dress would only be 130.00 before alterations and my girls were THRILLED! She also said that she would call me if she gets word that it’s going to be discontinued so that they would have 30 days to order it, which made me EQUALLY as happy.
Overall, it was a GREAT day with NO drama and my sisters and I just having fun playing dress up. It gave me a LOT of hope that things with them would go smoothly during the planning process, but I’ll just have to wait and see…
Oh! And I’ll post a picture tomorrow since I’m writing this from my phone 🙂

Sorry that my pictures are so BIG! Anyways, the dress will be black with a different color of the rainbow on each BM’s sash 🙂 My colors are black and white with rainbow accents, just for clarification 😀 SUPER excited!!!

@myluverbuny: thanks! and I agree 🙂 the second one looked GREAT on all 7 girls and the first one made my sister’s hips look wider…I’m happy with our choice 🙂
