Searching for my Bridesmaids Dresses

EngagedJuly09Hi again!

So what have I been up to since my last blog? I left you when I had found my dream wedding dress with the lovely Karen in Fairytale Moments.  Once that was chosen I was able to start thinking about trying to find the bridesmaid dresses for the girls.

My sister is my chief bridesmaid and herself and my Mum were with me the day I ordered my dress. My sister lives the other side of the country so while she was there we had some fun with her trying on different styles and colours of dresses and standing up beside me to see what suited her and what complimented my dress. The bridal shop stocks some fabulous Dessy dresses. Both of us preferred this one dress in particular. My sister got measured so that if she was not able to get to Carlow again I would be able to order anyway.

Then it was a matter of trying to get my other three bridesmaids together which was easier said than done they are just all too busy!  I made an appointment again with Fairytale Moments and met the two girls that were available on that day. I got to try on the sample dress in the shop again and the girls tried on various dresses and stood up beside me. The same dress stood out again. They got measured, and then I met the last one a few weeks later and she tried it on and got measured and I was finally able to order the dresses!!  It was great that the shop stock bridesmaid dresses and wedding dresses as I was able to see how it will all come together on the day.

I was able to book my make up also. I booked the wife of one of my h2bs friends so I have got my hair and make up organised now!

My sister is a florist but as she is chief bridesmaid it is too much for her to do my flowers for the big day. I have left her in charge of organising them for me though. She has got in contact with Mad Flowers in Dublin and she will be booking them soon. They have some amazing flowers on their website so can’t wait to see what they come up with.

Until the next time here on mrs2be…
