The first of many?

So, I had my first freak-out/melt-down/"oh my god, what was I thinking?!" bridal experience. I don't feel terribly guilty to be honest, I feel like I was due one of them...

I decided that I hated the bridesmaid dress that I had chosen and had asked my girls to purchase. Oops. I'm lucky that I have wonderful friends who took it in stride (at least to my face). The original dresses were returned and I chose a new dress that I am so, so much happier with. See below, in black.

It's funny because with all of my decisions I have moved so slowly and weighed (and reweighed) all of my options, but I acted impulsively on the bridesmaid dress. I have no idea why. Let this be a lesson to me. Start early, take your time and sleep on it!

Hahaha! Oh my gosh, the same exact thing happened to me. But I didn't change mine. You truly should be thankful that you had the courage to do it though because to this day it's still one of the only things I regret about the wedding. And, my bridesmaids still tease me about what they had to wear. So, trust me, I'm sure it will be worth it.

And, of course, the new dresses look fabulous! Anyway, glad you're back!

I love your choice! It's gorgeous! Thank for your sweet comment!

I think that dress is perfect. Your bridesmaids should be delighted, especially since it will work as a wonderful little black dress after the wedding.

I'm jealous!
