I am wholly unprepared to play best girl in BFF’s wedding.
I just know so very little about weddings and wedding behaviors. And, wedding décor. And wedding attire.
Previously, I asked for guidance on my best girl dress.
In case you haven’t heard, we went with the strapless.
I have already begun to regret it as I envision myself spending hours at the wedding tugging and pulling and clutching at myself to keep the girls from rolling up or, more tragically, rolling down at any point before, during, or following the ceremony. I imagine I will be a sweaty mess. And, chiffon taffeta frilly dress material doesn’t look awesome when you’re sweating. Nor does my hair for that matter.
I’ve proposed that we order metallic track suits to rock at the reception for each member of the wedding party. I’ve not heard back on this, but I’m guessing the answer is a definitive, Oh helllll naw at this point.
All of this in mind, I’m making a concentrated effort to not screw up my other wedding related attire. First off, I need to figure out what to wear to a rehearsal dinner. And, by I, I mean you because I’m expecting you to help me!
Here are the particulars…
Wedding date: November, towards the end.
Location: Austin, Texas.
Venue: some indoor restaurant-y place.
Budget: $0 (totally not realistic, but note, I’m trying desperately to NOT spend anything more than I already have to).
Options: One of the below, already owned, dresses…
I’ll wear a cardigan if it’s chilly.
Or, maybe I should purchase all one of these…
The good news is that all of them are available at Macy’s so I can purchase them through Ebates and get 6% cash back, thereby convincing DudeDad that we are actually saving money by buying me a new dress!
Weigh in here, peeps, I promise to listen this time!
