Last night, we found the last one. Finally! After months and months of searching, we found Lana's maid of honour dress. Now, you might ask, why was it so difficult? I mean, really, how hard would it be to find a floral dress in just the right green that doesn't look like a couch? Yeah. That's what I thought.
For those of you who don't know me, I'll let you in on a little secret. I started thinking about my wedding before Derek and I were engaged. Heck, I started thinking about it before I dated Derek, before I knew Derek! Yes. I'm a girl. But that being said, I had ideas about how I wanted the wedding to be before Derek proposed.
So, of course, before he proposed, I had ideas of how I wanted my bridesmaid dresses to look. I wanted each of them to be wearing a different dress (because I'm all about freedom and individuality and all that stuff) and I wanted them to be floral. I got my inspiration from pictures like these.
I mean, seriously! Don't they look awesome? How hard could it be. Of course, what ended up happening was me almost ripping my hair out in frustration and Lana and I sending email after email after email filled with links to dresses that might possibly be "the one". Seriously. It was harder than finding MY dress. Rachel found a dress very early on, and we were always under the impression that Vickie's mom would make her a solid brown dress, so it was only Lana's dress.
Yup. That was me.
Anyway. So FINALLY, we found a dress. It was perfect. It was gorgeous. It would look good with Rachel's dress. It was expensive, yah, but whatever. We'd deal with that. So a day or two later, Lana went to order it - and guess what? It was sold out. And discontinued. It was like the whole world was against me and this wedding, I swear. Last night, however, Lana and Vickie and I were discussing dresses, and I decided to open up the link. Guess my surprise when it was in stock! With one dress in size 6 and one in size 16. So, we ordered the size 6, and we're really crossing our fingers that the sizer is a little bit off. Really hoping it fits Lana good - because according to the sizer, she should move one up. EEP.
