- Wedding: November 2011
My girls are all so different. We all tried to come to a compromise on the dress situation for my wedding on 11/11/11. I know the date isn’t right by my avatar; I messed that up and forgot to fix it.
Anyways — I am going with BLACK Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses because that’s what I want – so please no comments on the color … My colors are black, white and plum. I think the black is going to look great in my pictures with our venue/church.
I decided to let the girls choose their own dresses – so long as they have straps, they don’t show cleavage, and they’re floor length. (And not shiny, of course.) I just feel like I can’t force these girls to wear something they don’t all like. I get that it’s my wedding and yadda ya ya, but I really don’t want to put pressure on the relationships. Each of these girls is from a TOTALLY different part of my life; I want them to feel like their personalities are shown on my day as well.
Also, many of the girls are getting married in the months right before and after our wedding. I would DIE if someone wanted me to spend $200 I didn’t have. I found a dress that was that expensive and they all nearly came at me with fists flying! I know they’re all going to go out of their way to throw the MANY showers I want…(what can I say? we both still live with our parents so we need EVERYTHING!) And the whole planning a wedding at the same time as each other is super stressful. I just want everyone to do things their way…
Is this the worst idea I could possibly have? I’m freaking out.
