I am happy to say that the dress fitting thing went off without a hitch. I could actually fit into mine, it was the right color, and it was just as light and airy as I remembered. (My necklace however is too long and that's why I only have one hand in the picture)
My taller flower girl was there trying on her dress as well. I think it is super cool. It's got a really neat sheen to it, that reminds me of those car finishes that seem to have glitter trapped in them.
The surprising find of the day though was when my flower girl brought her future sister in law (and my magazine dumping ground) dress shopping and I was actually all excited about helping her find a dress.
I think a lot of it was the whole fact that it wasn't me having to squeeze into dress after dress, I didn't have to try to figure out if I could wear something for hours and hours, or if I could afford something for just one day.
Plus she just looked gorgeous in it. It was one of those, where she picked one at random off the rack and just tried it on and it fit like a glove. I'd love to show a picture and all but in the off chance her fiance is a major computer hacker and figures it out, here's a close idea. Hers was an indigo and it was a different designer but they're practically the same. (My tall flower girl also tried on a wedding dress that she'd had picked out for years, dress shopping is so much easier when you don't have to wear one).
And as she's looking into using silk flowers and loves blue I volunteered her all my flowers, so they might get a really good home too. Now I just have to think of some other stuff she could use . . . too bad the extra invitations aren't good for anything.
Is anyone else donating a lot of their stuff, be it information or various props and things to another friends wedding?
