I'm the Maid of Honor in my younger sister's wedding, and we went out yesterday (with our older sister and our best friend) to look at more bridesmaid's dresses. So, I'm not a very dressy person, to be honest. The last time I even wore a dress was my senior prom in 2003. But I did find a few dresses I liked, and I finally chose one yesterday. It's a long dress with flutter sleeves, and it's going to be a plum-colored dress. My sister liked it, and so did I, so that's the dress that won. It should be here by the middle of next month, and then we can start the necessary alterations. All I need to do now is buy a pair of black dress shoes, which will probably be flats or very low heels, as I don't like to walk in regular or taller heels. I'm also planning to wear the puzzle piece and diamond necklaces my sister bought for me over the last few years, as well as the bracelet she gave me when she asked me to be her Maid of Honor. I'm not going to be posting a picture of the dress, or myself in the dress. First of all, I want to wait until I feel comfortable enough to do so. Most of all, I would rather wait until my sister is able to share the pictures from her wedding, so it'll be a while. Needless to say, I'm excited for my younger sister and soon-to-be brother-in-law's wedding. It's planned for October 30th, 2021, so here is to hoping it won't be postponed again. But at least I picked out my dress, so it's one less thing for her to stress over lol. Alrighty, I'm out. I'll be back later. :) Photo Credit: Pixabay.

The important thing is that you've found something that you love. Something you can be happy in. That in and of itself is quite the accomplishment.

Thank you so much! Yep, that's my sister's attitude - she wants her bridal party to feel comfortable and beautiful in their dresses.

@tammys85 While it will her big day, those in her party should feel confident in what they are dressed in. You're welcome, I am very happy you found a dress you can love.

@kaylachan That's how she feels. Like she's not one of those "Bridezillas" who doesn't care about others' feelings, otherwise, we'd have to burst her bubble.

I am glad you found a dress you like. I would suggest to try it on, just in case you need some small adjustments.

I tried it on there, but it'll still probably need to be altered a bit. Thank you.

I bet your dress is lovely. Were you able to try it on? Here it's hard to find a dress shop that has open dressing rooms. I have to soon start looking for a dress to wear in our granddaughter's wedding. It's not until May 2022, but I'll probably need that long!

Yeah, I could try it on, but we did need to keep our masks on, but that's fine. It'll still need some alterations though. We went to David's Bridal. I hope you find a dress you like!

@tammys85 Thanks. David's is a nice shop. Can't wait to see you in the dress after the bride says it's okay.

Thank you so much, and I hope it's not postponed either. It'd be the second time considering the original date was in April.

Aw thanks. They've been together since 2006 or so, living together for 6-7yrs, so I think it's safe to say they're in it for the long haul lol.

Such good results. I understand why you are not posting pictures yet, though. That is thoughtful.
