- Wedding: September 2012
So I went to look at reception dresses last night with two of my bridesmaids, my mom and my brothers girlfriend which I asked to read a poem at our ceremony since I already have 6 BMs. I got my first dress at an running of the dress event. For another who doesn’t know what that is, its when designers have deep discounts at what used to exist, Filene’s basement. Brides line up even the night before to be the 1st ones in the room. There are literally hundreds of dresses and the 1st ones in usually take them all and hoard them until someone wants to trade and just give them away when they found “their dress”.
I decided I wanted the experience of getting a dress with my BMs, mom and friends. An experience when everyone would be soo excited, told me what they liked and so on. Boy, was I totally wrong. I first went in with my brother’s gf, lets call her B. Since my mom had to pick up “K” with “Y”. B was awesome even though she wasn’t an Bridesmaid or Best Man. I asked her to read a poem at the wedding while in DB since we were in private without the others. We looked around at the bags of dresses until the others arrived. As soon as the did they all when their seperate ways looking for themselves and questioning what are we doing here. “You have a dress.” says Y. Umm hello your the one who wanted me to get a second dress. I didn’t say that though. Plus you already know, I told you. You crazy people.
So the DB associate asked me what size bra do you wear so she could get me an undergarment for trying dresses. My sister(Y) had to comment “don’t lie”. Excuse me, what the heck is wrong with you. Do people just don’t have any manners! My first dress was a soft white flowy dress. I can’t wear white dresses it doesn’t complement my skin tone. Next was an short striped tea-length dress. They weren’t impressed. My brother’s gf liked it though And I’m beginning to like it alot too. This is it, sorry its sideways. comp wouldnt let me save it right side up
They was a few more, my mom was disappeared for a while and finally came back. All the long dresses I put on she said it was too long. I’m 5’3″ every dress is going to be long I told her.
Well I ended up with no dress. Maybe going back with one friend to keep me sane lol
What do you think of this dress? I would be wearing it after the first dance wearing it for cake cutting and so on. I’m planning ankle strap purple heels then purple converse when dancing
