*Oprah Voice* You get a 2x!!! You get a 2x!! My Bridesmaids Dresses..Oh the HEADACHE!

Somebody come and rescue me!!! LOL..I'm just being a little dramatic, but I really need to say a few things to get them off my chest. *massaging temples* woo-sah* Excuse me for a moment as I rant...just a little...

1.) So, I've figured out why future brides are called "bridezillas"  (and no i'm not one)  it's OTHER PEOPLE that drive them crazy and makes them do really mean and crazy things, and say stuff with no regards to other people's feeling *sighs* Not that I will ever do that!!

2.) I hate when people ask me certain questions (ie. Where are you getting married? or What are your colors?) then they give me the "boo boo face" look like  they can't believe it. Please get a grip people, IT'S MY WEDDING! and your opinions and stank face looks are NOT WELCOME!

3.) My Future Mother-In-Law has decided that she will not be attending her sons' wedding because he doesn't call her enough and he didn't call her on Thanksgiving?!! In the sarcastic words of my blogger boo Jeema "That's not petty at all!" *sucks teeth and rolls neck* All I have to say about that is THEY (as in him and her) got 6 months to get their act together *two snaps*  She only has one son and she'll regret it later if she misses out!

Now to the title of this post!!Did you like my Oprah voice?!?! LOL..I've been looking for a bridemaids(BMs) dress to suit the needs of all my B

It was truly hard looking for a nice dress to meet all of those needs while still keeping in classy and not very expensive. I originally asked all of BMs to save between $80-$110, which I don't think is very expensive at all. I also asked them to have it saevd by the end of February which is like 2 months away.

Well things changed, I found the dress (yayyyyyy!!) But it was selling so fast I needed them to purchase it like NOW and not in February. This is where the title for my post came from, in the store they only had 2x's left..so I bought them all. Now this may seem a little "unethical" to some but let me explain myself.

 The original dress was $60 and on sale, I had a coupon for 30% off which brought the total price to $41.30. This is wayyyyyy below the initial amount I was going to have them to spend so I don't see what the problem was or STILL IS. One of my BMs did remind me that it was the Holiday season and that people were preparing for that...........*silence*............mmkay...*Kanye Shrug*

Now to the Dress!! I got it from Ashely Stewart...yes...I'll say it again...I got it from Ashley Stewart. There are a lot of non-traditional things that I will be doing for my wedding and so happy this dress fits right in.

It's the Ashley Stewart 10-Way Dress that can be worn 10 different ways. Before I made the decision I went to the store and tried it on myself and absolutely fell in love. It is so soft and elegant and the red color is divine! Now on to the dress!!

Below: One of my BMs, Tiana, came over to model this dress for the first time, she absolutely loves it, and that made me feel great!!
And yes, my camera is crappy well it was actually dirty. It sleeps in the bottom of my purse.

Above: This is the arm-friendly way and I absolutely love it, I don't think it looks tacky or anything.

We had so much fun remaking this dress over and over again! This was her favorite of them all, and mine too!

So i'm not sure on the accessories yet and I can't quite decide on bouquets or rose clutches..*Kanye Shrug Again* that bridge will be crossed when I get to it!
