I moved on to plan B, which was picking out ones for them. I was set on the color black, but now couldn’t choose between long vs. short dresses. Being a December wedding, long dresses would be perfect for the weather, but on of my goals was to pick out a dress the girls could wear again. Here’s what I liked.
I love the length and the bow on this dress from Nordstrom, but I really wanted a dress that actually wasn’t strapless. However, the price was doable, only $138.00.
Finally, I found this one.
I love basically everything about it; the ruffle collar, the length, the ability to wear it again, and the price. So, I had a few of my girls try them on at Nordstrom and try them on. One of my bridesmaids, Lucy, texted me while she was in the dressing room saying, “I love it. I definitely think I could wear it again. Plus it just reminds me of you!’ That sealed the deal for me!
Dessy has been designing bridesmaid gowns for many years. I am in absolute love with this idea that launched recently. Called Newlymaid, the concept is pure (green) genius.
- Find an old bridesmaid dress
- Mail to Newlymaid.
- Get a code for discount shopping.
- Buy a new dress like the own pictured above!
Here is the two of us at the Cliffs of Moher.
This picture is an example of a pub where multiple musicians would bring their instrument and begin playing. It was kind of like a pick up game of basketball, but music!
You can see in the picture the circular tables around the large head table. To add to the drama, they only had tall floral center pieces on the head table. I loved it! I didn’t think I would be one to steal an idea from another wedding, but I just may have to do this if Spiaggia’s floor plan permits!
