Bridesmaids Dress Shopping

Happy Weekend Eve everyone! I am so excited that it is Thursday. This has been another long week, and I'm very much looking forward to the weekend :)

While I was home in July, I also went bridesmaids dress shopping. Of course, I had to include this in my pre-wedding/engagement album too!

I had a great time shopping. Although my hair is a mess in all of these pictures because I'd been trying on veils before! Also, only one of my maid of honor was with me, so I modeled the bridesmaids dress while she modeled the maid of honor dress! (Oh yeah, and I blotted out her face because I forgot to ask her if I could use her picture on here, and its way to late to call her now - especially with the time difference!)

After we finalized the purchase of my wedding gown, Mom, Dad, Liz and I looked for bridesmaids dresses.
Originally I'd wanted the girls to wear short dresses, but I ended up preferring gowns (after Liz and Mom encouraged me to look at them!)
I really wanted Liz's dress to be special as maid of honor, but AJ didn't like the idea of using a different color. So, we picked a different (but similar) dress for Liz. I think all of the girls will look beautiful in their dresses!
The only issue for me was color. I'd chosen a deep green, but had second thoughts. The green w/ the oranges in the flowers reminded me of St. Patrick's Day! Mom and I went back a few days later and chose "spice" instead. I love it!

I had so much fun dressing up in all the pretty gowns that day! I wish I had an excuse to wear a gown for Halloween, they are just so fun! Are you dressing up this year? Do you have a costume picked out yet? I can't believe Halloween next week!

I love this paper you used! Lots of fun pictures :) I can hardly believe it's time for Halloween already! This week has just flown by here, hope yours has too :)

Love the paper that you used for the LO.....and you are always so good about your journaling - I have to get better at that. I also love that AJ actually had an opinion - men tend to stand back and just let it happen where weddings are concerned. Good for him!!!!

Very, very cute!
No costume for me either. I almost bought a wig so I could have blue hair and chickened out!
