Last night I was able to figure out how to change the batteries in the smoke alarm/carbon monoxide detector and was actually able to get a good night sleep (have I mention to you guys that I have been sleeping on the couch when I am at my apartment ever since the incident? well I have) last night.
Since I got such a great response (in terms of number of votes, not how you guys voted) with my last plea for opinions, I am putting it to you guys again (no worries, this time there isn't a wrong answer...at least not yet) to make a major life decision for me.
S and I are getting married next October (as in October 2010) and I have no clue what people in our wedding party are going to wear. I know what you are saying, "But Sarah, you have over a year, why are you stressing out?" Answer: I am neurotic.
So here are the facts:
Wedding Date: October 23, 2010
Number of bridesmaids: 3
Time of wedding: 3:00 PM
Dress color: navy
I have gone back and forth on this issue and here's the thing...buying bridesmaid's dresses sucks. I don't care how many brides say, "Oh I picked this pink taffeta explosion because it's SO VERSATILE. They can totally wear it again!" No one ever wears it again*. Because of this, I don't want these ladies spending much on their dresses and anything wedding-related (that I have liked) is expensive. The benefits is that the girls all match.
Oh wait, I forgot to mention that my little sister/MOH wants strapless. The rest want some sort of straps. So if we go with the matching option, the MOH will have strapless and the rest will not.
But I also really like the idea of the girls being able to pick something (within my guidelines of course) that they like and may actually wear again, spending whatever amount they think is comfortable. The result (in my mind anyway) will be something like this (but with matching shoes):
So here's your chance to tell me what you think:
Vote your hearts out people and tell me why in the comments!
Also, send feel better vibes to S who has come down with something that involves lots of coughing and congestion.
*Please don't send me an e-mail telling me how your bridesmaids wear theirs ALL THE TIME. I am sure every once in a blue moon someone re-wears the dress, but the majority of the time they don't, even if the dress was really not bad.
