'Tis the Season to Be...Married?

No, no, not me.

But it seems as if everyone's getting married right now.  Am I right?  Is it just me?

In the past month we've gotten numerous invitations to different weddings and it seems like this winter is THE time to get married.

Maybe it's just a coincidence, or maybe everyone wants to get it over with before the world ends.

Whatever the reason for all the weddings this season, (you like my rhyme?) it's got me taking an interest in bridesmaid dresses.

Why bridesmaid dresses and not wedding dresses?  Because.

Bridesmaid dresses are more fun!  Colors, fabrics, patterns, styles, accessories, etc.  There are so many different varieties and combinations!

And don't even get me started on the brands!  Seriously, I had no idea how many different brands there were for bridesmaid dresses!

I'm currently loving the Dessy brides maid dresses.  They have so many different styles - I think my faves are the retro ones.  They have that vintage glam look that is so elegant and classy.

One day, when I get married, I hope to have my bridesmaids wear something equally amazing.  Bridesmaids dresses are just as important as a wedding dress.  What your entourage wears has to compliment you, so for me I'd want something simple yet elegant to compliment the drama of my dream wedding dress.

And for your viewing pleasure, here are some pictures of me as a bridesmaid at my cousin's wedding last year.

What do you think?  Have you ever been a bride or bridesmaid?  Have you attended a wedding recently?

  1. I haven't been to a wedding in forever! Guess all my friends are now old and married :). I was once a bride--it's overrated IMO. I've been a bridesmaid 3x. Being a bridesmaid is a lot more fun and a lot less stress--and money!

  2. I love your teal dress, and the pouty face pic, haha!!

  3. Haha it's really fun as a bridesmaid :D *sigh* it's been so long that I attended a wedding , but reecntly I attended a funeral -_-

  4. I love that teal color!! Plus it compliments everyone u know? I love being a bridesmaid!! I've been one twice and each time was so much fun!!

  5. I have noticed a lot of weddings, but in my circle its people having babies...swift kick to my ovaries LOL.
    I love that color on you! And of course I have been a bride...also a bridesmaid. Nothing cute sexy like your bridesmaids dress. I had a super formal, floor length wine colored one and a pretty grayish purple one too. Oh and I've had a yellow one...think tweety bird yellow. I've had 3 black simple ones too. LOL wow thats a lot huh?
