So now the family is abuzz with the on-going preparations for my brother’s December wedding. Today, we heard that the bride rang my mother to talk about the dresses the members of the wedding entourage will be wearing to the occasion.
And so, now, my sister chatted me up online, she’s in a sort of panicked state because she has not picked dress yet. She was a bit on the heavy side and was really afraid to end up with the wrong dress. I helped her find a dress style that she is comfortable with and the same time look good on her, rather than the ones conforming to a trend or what’s considered IN at the moment but makes her look awful.
It was difficult in the beginning because, while there are lots of style options and colours to choose from online, they were not really flattering to her body shape. Some styles she chose are either too simple for the occasion, the kind that you’d wear when holidaying in Ocean Isle beach nc real estate. I also suggested to her to go visit a bridal store where she could actually fit the dresses and see for herself how these dresses look on her and how she feels wearing them.
As for me, I haven’t really thought about it yet. The wedding is still two months away and I don’t have any important role in the ceremony so I can afford to stall awhile. When the time comes, I don’t think I’ll be having a hard time when I shop for my dress. The style I had firmly planted in my mind has to be simple yet sleek dress to fit the occasion. We’ll see soon enough.
