The best part of wedding planning has definitely been the time I get to spend with my friends. We all live in different towns all of these extra wedding-related visits have been pretty awesome.
Last night, Lindsey and Stef came up and we hit the happening town of Occoquan.
We have fun everywhere we go. We drank. We danced. We wore our sunglasses at night.
This morning, Sam arrived and we met mom at David’s Bridal for Bridesmaids’ dress shopping. I had four dresses in mind and wanted to narrow it down to two.
The girls tried on various dresses of similar styles to my top picks. We decided on the David’s Bridal one shoulder dress for Lindsey, my matron of honor.
My other three girls (Maeghen couldn’t make this trip) will be wearing this strapless David’s Bridal dress. The best part about this dress? The pockets! I love them!
All of the dresses will come in truffle which is a really rich chocolate brown. My dress will include a ribbon of brown that matches, and the Groomsmen will be wearing vests in the same color.
The bouquets of gerbera daisies will add nice, bright pops of fall color.
I originally wanted to find burnt orange shoes for the girls, but had a hard time finding shoes in the right color of orange. So I may do a more neutral color to stay with the fall palate.
I’m getting these shoes for myself.
They also come in ivory. I think they would be pretty with the brown dresses and bright flowers. Plus they match my shoes, which would make for cute pictures.
But I may just let the girls pick whatever shoes they want. They all have good style and excellent judgement, so I know they will look great.
I loved having my friends here and being able to share in the wedding planning with them. They all looked so pretty in their dresses. It made the wedding a little more real and got us one step closer the big day!
We are making some big progress with the wedding. I hope it continues to go smoothly. I am enjoying crossing things off my list and watching the plan slowly come together. Six more months until we say, “I do!”
