My maid of honor Ashley came to visit this past weekend, and we had a great time. We went to Checkers and got yummy food with my little sister (bridesmaid) and my honorary little sister Gabby! It was not “fast” food but it was yummy in my tummy. Then, of course, I had to show Ashley all of the stuff we’ve acquired for the wedding thus far. She hadn’t seen any of the stuff that I’ve showed off a billion times already so I was happy to show her it all. I love looking at our ‘I do, Me Too’ wedding forks by jessicaNdesigns on etsy. I also showed her our cake cutting set, peachy/light pink gems for the centerpieces, wedding invitation samples, save the date samples, and all of our stuff we have for the house thus far which amounts to very little, LOL! But it’s something!!!
I loved having her here!! We went to my bridal boutique and the girls tried on bridesmaid dresses. I wanted every girl in a dress they liked versus me sticking them all in the same dress. But, it turned out that they liked the same two dresses (one short and one long). Alas, I was not happy with the price but we’re keeping them in mind because the girls looked FANTASTIC. I mean, really fantastic. I just have a hard time being okay with spending $176 per dress (and yes that’s the discounted price for the bridesmaid dress y’all). Eh, not okay with that in the slightest. I think that’s too much money for a bridesmaid dress. That’s not including shoes or anything else — no way I’m making everyone pay that. Hell to the no.
I was excited because they had my wedding dress sample in the store so I got to try it on again. My little sister had never seen it and neither had Ashley. They both saw it on in pictures but never in person. Also my other sister’s boyfriend had not seen it yet either in person. I tried it on again with a veil I liked before and asked for a little something extra….bam. Bridal look complete. Bought the finishing pieces to my bridal look and kept it moving.
It was sweet thought because I didn’t wanna buy the veil due to cost (why the hell do they cost so friggen much?!?!!?). My little sister helped me out of the dress and she started crying saying “you look so beautiful and you have to have it all.” This made me start crying also lol…and alas I left with a veil and sparkly headband. LOL
My maid of honor actually found a very awesome and reasonably priced convertible dress online that everyone loved. It’s a one size fits all kind of dress and it’s super awesome. I ordered fabric swatch samples in two colors — more than likely this will be THE bridesmaid dress. I just have a feeling….. =] The dress is awesome and could def be worn again which I love. It can be made into a skirt and all sorts of amazing dress styles. This, of course, will give me the mismatched look I was longing for so please be wonderful fabric. PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE!!!!!!!
Later that night Michaela, Ashley, and I went to Michaels and got stuff to decorate flower girl baskets which turned out SO beautiful. Love them to pieces. It still kills me that people want you to pay at least $20 for a flower girl basket that has like no personality. I think not — especially since I needed 3 baskets. No ring bearer in our wedding so I went flower girl crazy. I had to have the cuties!!! My little sister who will be a little over 2 at the time of the wedding is one of my girls and my two little cousins are the other two. Love it!
We also went out to the mall with C.J. and shopped around. We grabbed taco bell and chilled. It was me, my sister Kayla, Ashley, and C.J. walking around the mall. Later we met up with my groomy and my future sister-in-law and we all had cheesecake factory for dinner. Noms! It was a lot of fun — my allergies were a hot damn mess the entire weekend and they’re not much better today lol. But it was good times.
Good weekend =)
