Wedding Wednesday: Bridesmaid Dress

Kristin over at Busy Bee is planning her November wedding and does a Wedding Wednesday post each week, so I thought I would try it out. Last week I posted about shopping for the dresses for my friend's October wedding. Today you get to see the dress I picked for my wedding :)

I don't know if there is a "typical" process for selecting bridesmaid dresses since I have never been married or planned a wedding before. In the weddings I have been in before, I was just told what dress I would be wearing and that was that. I went the same route with my own wedding because I had a vision and I knew what I wanted. My bridesmaids all have pretty similar body types, so I didn't have to worry about how different dresses would look on them. With our wedding colors being fuchsia and black, and me not wanting it to look like the fuchsia threw up all over everything, I decided to go with fuchsia accents instead of the other way around. This is the dress I picked for my lovely ladies:

We didn't really have the day of everyone showing up and trying different dresses until we could all agree on one. Luckily, no one had complaints about the one I chose, and if they did, they were smart enough to keep them to themselves. LOL! Totally kidding. We did all get together and they tried it on to make sure that they liked it and then got measured and put down their deposits to get the dresses ordered. Like a big jerk, I scheduled this the week before Christmas as if people don't have enough to pay for that time of year. I was fortunate that everyone was able to pay the deposit to get it ordered so I could check it off of my to-do list.

I am so excited that the dresses are scheduled to arrive in a few weeks! I need to see the sash color so I can match the ties for the groomsmen. My dress should be here soon as well! SO EXCITED!!!

I will also take this opportunity to point out my cute little wedding countdown widget on the right hand side of the page. :) That is obviously not me and JB in the pic, but I liked it better than the other options.

In other wedding related news, I also downloaded and filled out the paperwork for our wedding license the other day. This shit is getting real! LOL!
