Over the holiday break, I was able to get a fair amount done for our wedding. As we coasted by our 6 months to do mark, I feel pretty confident with the state of our plans.
One thing that I was finally able to shore up, was the bridesmaid dress selection. After some unsuccessful searching, I finally decided on dress from the LulaKate line that is available at Bella Bridesmaid. From the start I knew that I wanted to give the girls various styles to choose from, all in the same color. Lula Kate was able to provide just that for me. Each girl selected a different style top and they had the choice of 4 different bottoms. Some of the bottoms came with pockets, which for me, ups the ante on any dress. Unfortunately, one of my bridemaids was not fully informed of the necessity of pockets before placing her order. See conversation below:
Me: blah blah… something about having a candy bar at the wedding… blah blah blah
Noelle: candy bar???????? yummmmmmmmmmmmmmm
Noelle: I just told bobby (her husband) about the candy bar. He says, ” Oh damn, That is going to be sweet”
Me: I am going to put those Easter candies in it just for you
Noelle: yummmmmmmmmmmmmmm. Cadbury eggs! I’m totally going to hoard them. I wish our dresses had pockets
Me: dude, your dress could have had pockets if you got the other skirt
Noelle: I didn’t know there was going to be a candy bar
The painful lesson here is, when in doubt, get pockets.Whether it is your cell phone, chap stick or candy, there will undoubtedly be something worthwhile to put in them.
