So, about four months had passed, and I really hadn’t done many wedding related tasks just because it was still over a year until our actual wedding date. But once the 365 day mark hit, I felt the urge to start back up with doing things. I just always felt when I called around to vendors or told people our wedding date they gave me that, “Girl, why are you planning so soon” tone. The only thing I had really made headway on for the wedding was selecting my bridesmaids (Mr. W also selected his GM), picking a reception venue, and selecting a color scheme (or so I thought).
BM Kam was coming home from North Carolina a little after the “one year to the big day mark,” so I knew that I should plan to do something wedding related while she was here. She already feels left out being in a different state. She let me know on Wednesday that on Friday evening she would be home. (Benefits of having a sister—BM IC works for an airline.) So I went ahead and made an appointment at a local David’s Bridal for the bridesmaids to try on different styles of dresses. I was so nervous to actually be doing something wedding related with all of my bridesmaids in one place. But really excited!!
That Saturday, the eight of us, PLUS my mom, grandmother, and aunt (I know that’s a lot of folks up in a David’s Bridal) walked into the unknown. I have never been in a wedding, so I was a little overwhelmed. Everyone was super friendly when we walked in. They led us to a back area, and for a Saturday they were not super packed.
