I’m excited for many reasons. First, I love my brother and future sister-in-law, and can’t wait for them to start this new journey together. Also, there will be lots of family and friends who are coming from out of town. And c’mon, who doesn’t love a wedding?
The wedding also means that I get to wear the pretty, yellow, flow-y bridesmaid dress that I bought for the occasion. And my cute gold sandals and matching earrings.
The other day, I tried on everything – dress, accessories, shoes – because that is what EVERY woman does before a dressy event. Lo and behold, the dress didn’t quite fit! I should have realized that, since I purchased the dress in March, and have since lost about ten more pounds. Oops. The top of the dress hangs loosely on my bust and shoulders. Luckily for me, the dress has fabric that crosses in the front, and ties. So if I tie the fabric suuuuuper tight, it can work. I am praying that we don’t have a sister-of-the-groom-flashes-the-wedding-guests situation, you know?
Although I suppose that would make the celebration highly entertaining.
