*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!

  1. I love the extra silence & kanye shrug on the holiday prep comment...ha.... Anyway doe, I was able to order mine in the midst of my holiday shopping. Cute dress, I'm glad you found the perfect one.

  2. LOVEEEEE that dress!!

  3. haha I love my personal quote in this post! The dress is GAWJUS! I absolutely love it and for $40? That's a STEAL! Holiday season or not! Glad to see that, in spite of all the drama, you are able to press forward to make sure your wedding is perfect! Good luck!

  4. LOVING that dress. You did well :) Oh TELL me about the other people. I became a right beeyotch because of issues with the M-I-L to be. Changed the whole damn shebang to suit her, which I should not have done. The drama is over now, but if I had my time over, I wouldn't change a thing and tell her (through her lazy son) to bite my voluptous butt.

    I'm still undecided on accessories too. Can't wait to see what you get!

  5. I saw that dress in the store the other day!!! I love it!!!

  6. This dress is sooo unique...give everyone options. Love it!

  7. I love that dress! I think its a FAB bang for the buck she's looks beautiful in it <3


  8. Honey..... I can imagine what you are going through. I never understood why Bridezillas acted the way they do until around this time last year. I got married in March and let me tell you, I thought seriously about cutting quite a few friends and family members off for life. Welp. I actually had to... But anyways!

    I am loving the dress and its versatility! I'm glad you were able to get the perfect dress for your BMs.

    I also hope that things work out with the future mother-in-law. I know that has to be stressful :(

    If you need anyone to talk to or need any help or advice, you can hit me up or tweet me if you would like :)

    Hang in there girlie <3

  9. oh congrats on getting married soon! ahhh i know planning a wedding is nuts! i didnt plan mine but i helped my sister plan hers and it was NUTTTSSSSSS!!! good job on keeping calm! :) the BM dresses you picked are really pretty love the color. i sadly have no idea where you could keep looking...i know there is this website called davids bridal they sell plus size dresses i just dont know if they ship internationally :) good luck!


  10. I love the idea of this dress, especially for the bridesmaid! They can all wear them alike or differently and still look as one! And plus if they're keeping them, they are versatile and can be used in their every day life! G E N I U S!
