Bridesmaids dresses are really frustrating. I have all of these pins of dresses I like on Pinterest, yet I cannot find where you actually buy them or who makes them anywhere. I did track down my dream dresses -FINALLY- only to find that a designer girl makes them and she makes nothing cheaper than 1,000. Dollars, that is. What?!? Ok I'm hoping to find dresses definitely under 100, ideally under 50.
Here is a picture of my crushed dreams:
I want to just stumble upon the perfect unique dresses without even trying, like in some magical DIY movie. It's crazy that this whole thing is in like 5 months. I know it will fly by. Oh, and can I mention how expensive flower-people are?? And planners?? I really want to try to do a lot ourselves, together, like the Bridal Brigade APW always talks about, but it's complicated since we are so far away from the location. I'd actually love to look into more community/DIY flower options like this too (Whole Foods too, since Trader Joe's isn't in Boulder) , but I don't want to be stressing about if the flowers are going to die, and all that, because my flowers like to die. BUT I mean if it means saving 2000 dollars, hell yes. I'm excited about trying to find ways to DIY this thing anyway, since it's not like we can load up the car and transport lots of stuff easily.
We've got soooo much to do in five months. But I'd rather do everything all scrunched together than to drag this sucker out, especially since I have a really flexible schedule and can do lots of research and planning.
I took a break in writing this post to eat vegan taquitos with beans and guacamole and a burrito and have some coffee. Wish I could wrap this thing up with some wit or closure, but not happening.
