Dress Finding Mission

Weddings are all about being the center of attention whether you like it or not. Recently I was talking with a friend about my extreme discomfort at these particular types of attention. Also, I don't really like shopping with people. Or I'm very very selective of who I shop with and what I shop for...and especially how much I spend. This is an equation that makes dress shopping (even my $150 dress) kind of the most not fun thing ever.

Well, a bit of brainstorming over drinks and dessert, Andrea (hello there !) and I devised a plan: scavenger hunt. Not really, but b/c I know my wedding party wants to be a part of the dress search (I can feel my anxiety rising) we came up with the idea of all of us going into a large department store and then going off on our own for like 45 minutes. We'd meet back at a particular dressing room with white/cream/champagne colored dresses but also their ideas for bridesmaids dresses. That way we are all trying things on at the same time and I can get their opinions on both at once.

Genius! And actually sounds like a lot of fun.
