As most of you already know by now, my second major extracurricular activity (after decorating the new house) is preparing for my younger sister's wedding next May wherein I am the matron (ugh) of honor. After Jane set the date, booked the church and reception location and hired the photographer, the next task on our "to do" list was to find the dress -- and we managed to make quick work of it last Saturday.
As luck would have it, I also managed to find a bridesmaid dress that we all could agree on. This dress reminds me a lot of the Erin dress from Vera Wang that I blogged about a few weeks ago, but the color choices for it better suited a spring wedding. The color I'll be walking down the aisle in is called Nectar, and is really a brighter coral than the picture above shows. Sure, it's not a color I'd necessarily pick out on my own (that'd be the peacock blue I tried to talk everyone into), but it's a lovely color for a May wedding and it works well with Jane's ivory gown.
And last, but certainly not least, the flower girl (or girls -- I believe that's still under discussion) will be walking down the aisle in this dress. Isn't it just the sweetest?
Next up, we'll be tackling (or rather tasting) the wedding cake. I expect that to be my favorite part of the job.
