Life of a Bridesmaid: Dress Shopping





I don’t know if I’ve mentioned it here or not, but my boyfriend’s sister asked me to be a bridesmaid in her wedding on April 11, 2014! I’m pretty ridiculously excited about it. This past Saturday, we all trekked up to Pinole, CA to visit the David’s Bridal shop. It was a pretty exciting time as she’s the second child and first girl to be married in the family.

I have never been a bridesmaid before. The majority of my friends are unmarried or married well before I became from with them. So, this is pretty exciting for me.

I’m happy to announce that Megan did find The One while we were there, but because the groom follows me on social media and there’s a chance he might see this, I can’t post the final choice until after the wedding. Sorry, kids. It’s pretty freaking gorgeous, though. Afterward, we all went to this adorable little Italian restaurant in town where the unfortunate beginnings of a cold kicked in pretty hardcore. There’s still a really high chance that the sneezing attack I experienced was due to the old ladies behind us being covered in cat dander.

Next up: finding my dress! We’re wearing black dresses with gold glitter heels for the wedding. I’m on the hunt for a fit-and-flare dress that may or may not have lace. Let me know if you’ve got any suggestions I should be on the look out for! Have you been a bridesmaid or a groomsman before? I’d love to hear about your experiences! I’m so new to all this!
