This is so unlike us! Derek and I had a date last week and again this week. Yeah for us! We went to a movie this morning. We saw "27 Dresses." It was cute, pretty predictable, but cute. I started thinking about how many times I've been a bridesmaid. I think it is five or six times. I have always enjoyed weddings and being a bridesmaid. I actually had some pretty dresses to wear. There was one I don't think was my favorite, but other than that, they were all decent. My favorite one was when I was in Michelle's wedding. Her mom made all of the dresses. They were a beautiful deep wine color. I have no idea how she made the top. It had this beautiful collar on it. It was very elegant, finished off with a full length a-line skirt. There was also another bridesmaid dress that I did actually cut off (everyone says, "You can cut it off and wear it again!"). Let's face it, there are some that just shouldn't be worn even the first time...short or long, but this one actually looked cute short. My grandmother made the cap sleeves into spaghetti straps and shortened it. I took it on a cruise and really liked it. The best part about that dress was the bride's father bought all of the bridesmaid dresses for us!
Thank you goes out to my sweet husband who has endured two chick flicks within two weeks. I enjoyed our time together and hope we get to do it again real soon.
My date bought us a treat...pop corn with a real Coke. I haven't had a real Coke in a while! Soooo good!
So tell me...How many times have you been a bridesmaid? Did you like any of your dresses? Did you ever wear it again? What was the worst one like?
