I just wanted to give a shout-out to my awesome bridesmaids. I love them. I have 5 of my best friends supporting me along the way. I feel so lucky to have friends like these! They have all been there for me when I’ve needed it, and I feel honoured to have them play such a big part in our wedding, standing by my side when I marry the Groom… Vanessa, Alexis, Pamela, Leah, and especially my Super MOH, Amanda. Naw.
On the other hand, dressing my dearest friends has been one of the most stressful parts of the planning process! The stress has been caused mostly by myself though (my BMs have been fantastic).
I originally wanted cobalt blue dresses in different styles for each. Then I changed the ‘wedding theme’ from ‘peacock feathers’ to ‘garden, spring, neutrals’. So we chose pale champagne pink dresses (all in the same style). I thought light silver peep toe shoes would work best. They didn’t. So we chose cream slingbacks with a wooden platform and heel.
Thank God for my bridesmaids, because I am so bad at visualising and accessorising!
A lot of my stress could have been avoided if Forever New transferred between their stores. Instead we will have travelled to their stores across Sydney to buy the various sizes, both in dresses and shoes – Macarthur, Pagewood, Ryde, Warringah…
My stress is now over though. No more whingeing or panicking. It is all sorted, and I’m so happy with the dresses and shoes. Big tick! I have my bridesmaids to thank for that.
Has anyone else caused themselves unnecessary stress during their planning, or been stressed from suppliers?
