If you’ve been following the blog for the past year, you know how much drama the “dress saga” has created for me. It started last December after my humiliating fitting and has continued on through my failure to lose much weight (due to circumstances both in and out of my control). Well, it’s finally over, and I survived it, despite feeling uncomfortable both physically and emotionally. Shannon was a beautiful bride and the wedding was lots of fun, and, as you can see, I used Joey’s tuxedo jacket to cover up during the reception.
It’s actually strange to have this all behind me. Although I’ve been excited for my friends, personally it’s been this kind of “D-Day” that I’ve been counting down to because of “the dress.” Now that it’s over, I almost don’t know what to do with myself.
Also, since this is the first wedding where Joey and I have both been attendants…I wouldn’t say that we were unprepared for the cost, but I don’t think that we had mentally prepared beforehand for what the final cost would be. Needless to say, the last two months of the year are going to have to be a major crackdown for us…no more frivilous expenses.
At any rate, I’m enjoying the newfound sense of calm that’s come over the Weaver household..for now, at least;)
I love how you both look so happy! I can’t really see the dress, but it looks like a pretty color.
Thanks, Daisy! It was an eggplant purple, which was very pretty. Her colors were purple and fuschia, which I found unusual, but it turned out well!
You look beautiful! Remember, Mel, that beauty is more than a dress size. A happy smile, a twinkle in your eye, and a man that loves you no matter what…that is beautiful! Miss you girl!
thanks, Brandy! Things are starting to calm down for me now, so let’s try to get together sometime in the next couple of weeks:)
You look lovely together! 🙂
