Devil With a Blue Dress On
Everyone who has ever purchased a bridesmaids dress is fairly certain the dress is going to be worn one Saturday for 8 or so hours. HOWEVER, once in a blue moon you wear a dress that you say out loud and fully believe, “I could wear this again.” This where we found ourselves for wedding number five! Back in Highlands, North Carolina for the second time in 3 weeks with the perfect dress. Oddly enough – this is my ONE bride who said to me…”Sorry, I know you will NEVER wear this again!” Boy was she wrong! We cut it short and packed for the trip to the mountains.
When the moment arrives to re-wear a bridesmaids dress, its like a dream come true. We like to call it the Bridesmaids Unicorn! Some think they don’t exist, but we think they live in Rainbow Land with lollipops and puppies….okay back from our brief acid trip…
At the rehearsal dinner, some may call it luck, we call it Bridesmaid intuition…we asked the bride – “So what are your bridesmaids wearing?” WELLLLLLLLLLLLLLL, we kid you not…they were wearing the same dress, BUT one shade darker. COMPLETE DISASTER was on the horizon, but WEDDING TRAGEDY was averted and I just went with option #2.
So if this blog taught you anything…Always OVERPACK, no matter what your husband, boyfriend, mother or Delta Airlines tells you…
Shout Count: 4:5!
5 down and 1 to go! Next weekend we will indeed be wearing the same dress as the rest of the bridal party. But this time it is by design!
