My sister is getting married this July. In the Riviera Maya, which is in Mexico. Yes, Mexico. The swine flu is all I can think about right now…
But moving past that, this is what the bridesmaids are wearing
J Crew Erica dress in tea rose
It’s cute and I like it because it has pockets but, is it just me or do J Crew dresses give everyone weird hips? Every single J Crew dress I own gives me hips that I do not have, it’s really kind of irritating! I am taking the dress to my tailor to get rid of the hips and shorten it. I bought the dress in petite but it’s still too long.
And then we are wearing these shoes for the ceremony
(in pewter, the color in the back)
Victoria’s Secret T-strap wedge
I’m typically not one for wedges. I own like 3 pairs, I much prefer heels. But, she’s getting married on a pier with lots of holes that could catch little stiletto heels so during the ceremony, we are wearing wedges and then changing to heels for the reception. Well, at least I am, not sure about the other girls!
I have yet to find a pair of heels to go with the dress. If you find a perfect pair, send them my way! I’m looking for silver, not too strappy, and HIGH (at least 4 inches).
And for our fun part, we are all wearing fascinators in our hair made by the very awesome Kasia Fink veils
! My sister will have the biggest flower, like this one but without the feathers and netting.
and Kasia is making the 3 bridesmaids smaller versions.
I’m so excited, we are going to look haute!
I’m going to figure out how to do my hair as I’ve never loved professional up-do’s on me. I just end up looking weird.
Now… what to do about that dang swine flu? ugh. I need to stop watching the news and reading the newspaper! I guess I’ll try to make it to her bachelorette party in Vegas first AND then worry about it! 🙂
p.s. I am technically the “matron of honor” but who likes that term? makes me sound so OLD!
