It's a tough thing to do because just because what looks good on the model doesn't mean it's going to look good on me. I stuck with an A-line skirt, halter style (note to self: pick up a push-up strapless bra that will perk up my boobs) She also thought I was going to have my dress copied from one of the dresses I already have, ostensibly because those dresses suit me and it would be easier for the seamstress to reproduce and cheaper for me. However, since I have lost weight, they don't really fit me anymore. And when I thought about it, the silhouette, though flattering to my figure, isn't all that exciting and special. According to her seamstress, this is going to cost a small fortune so why not get something I really love? I made the journey to the Indian section of town and found the perfect orange colour in dupioni (raw) silk. I didn't take a picture of it, sorry, but good news, after consulting with the seamstress, I will be going to the fitting tomorrow! Ah! I'm freaking out. I'm so nervous because I'm scared it will look dreadful or it will make me look like a giant blob of orange. Yeah, positive thinking, eh? It should look something like this:
I had no idea that there were so many bridal magazines and bridesmaid dresses! They even have this site called theknot.com. This is probably why when I got married, I decided to forgo the bridal magazines and just get one made right away. The choices are dizzying! Mind you I got engaged in August and married in November, so I didn't really have a lot of time. This dress will end up costing me more than my wedding dress (but my friend gave me a shwack of cash to help out - I LOVE HER!) And then there's the matter of shoes, hair, purses...... This is supposed to be fun, I should be having fun - when are these meds going to kick in? Right now, it's stress inducing and I just want it over with.
I saw my friend's wedding dress - it's just gorgeous! Simply stunning on her. Oh, to be a bride again!
