My girls were so many different body types, no one dress suited them. 2 gave birth a month and two months before the wedding so fittings would be a nightmare. The other 2 ladies pooh figure and my sis skinny and very young. We went to Marshall Fields, a very nice department store here, we picked the color and mid-chin length and everyone picked their own dress that fit their figure in the same exact color. It worked beautifully.
My BFF+ I stood up in here wedding a few years prior. She dressed us all up in floor length dresses, lacy stuff at the top, big flop hats that looked like Easter bonnets, pastel colors, each of us in a different color. We looked like LIttle Bo Peep's Easter eggs. I could't wait 'till we all came forward at the reception and everyone had a few adult beverages so I could loose my bonnet.
My Sis did it best, wish I had though of it, she bought a lovely plain and understated Laura Ashley white dress around $500. Then I went to the same little shop and bought a pretty pink Laura Ashley dress in a similar style for around $200. I was the only girl to stand up to her wedding, she didn't want the drama I had. Learning curve.
Some people are like Slinkies.
They aren't really good for anything,
but they still bring a smile to my face when I push them down a flight of stairs.
Friends are Gods way of apologizing to us for our families.
