We did the dresses as a group (some from a distance) as we had varying sizes of girls (wanted everyone comfortable) and they paid for the majority of them. I picked the color and they picked the style Thankfully that part was easy and we did it early on!! I'm way too controlling to just leave it in their control hehehe. So I feel you!!

@calgarybride2015 I did the same. I had my bridesmaids pick any grey dress they want. Surprisingly I wasn't as controlling as I thought I'd be. I'm paying for their dresses and so far all have chosen under $200. One picked a $350 dress and I said no way!

Awesome! That would be a tough price tag if you are paying (gulp).

I think I got lucky cause my BM suggested we go look. So we tried them all on and the ones we liked we sent pics to the other girls. They all picked and we ordered. I've heard horror stories on here where BMs order their dresses last minute and leave the bride stressed out. I couldn't have left it to their own devices!!!

I felt so guilty asking them to pay $160 so I helped them out. That's awesome you are doing that for them :)

Re purchasing kids' sizes. Works great for women and I think you can even brag about it. But does anyone remember the episode of Sex & the City where Samantha is dating a short guy and then sees his suit jacket is from Nordstrom's Boys or something? That didn't work out so well. LOL

Oh I'm stressing out about one bridesmaid. I didn't expect her to come to Mexico since it was too pricey for her. She's the only one with kids and it was financially difficult for them. But last minute, she worked out her budget with her husband and she's now coming! So now we're frantically looking for a dress since we're calling it close with a little over 4 months till the wedding. She's been really picky and didn't like anything from David's bridal. So now we're still on the hunt.

I got a promotion at work so I thought paying for their dress was the least I could do. They've been by my side since I was 8, and that type of friendship is priceless ☺️

@vancouverpetunia I totally remember that episode! I can wear kid's size shoes but I'm too curvy to fit their clothes lol

@acw271011 thank you so much! I actually prefer shoe whore but shoe south works fine too I saw your two pairs of blue wedding shoes and am so jealous! The options would have been more if our ceremony was on a terrace but we really wanted a beach ceremony.

@vancouverpetunia thank you so much!

 

That's ok - I'll take shoe whore too!! Works for me!!

 

And congrats on the promotion!

 

I'm waiting for news on another job (fingers crossed yay!!) and it will be the universe smiling on me if I get it!! Oh I soooooooooooooooo desperately want out of here!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! (sorry)


I said "yes" again to the love of my life at Grand Coral Beach Club, Playa del Carmen, Mexico on our 4th anniversary - October 20, 2015
