one of my best friends from college got engaged this summer! yay! i’m absolutely thrilled for her and love her fiance, he’s fantastic. they’re the perfect match for each other, too: goofy and fun. anywho, i’m one of her 8 bridesmaids (or was it 7? i’m not quite sure), which is also quite exciting. she’s the first of my close group of friends to get married and it’s the first wedding i’ve ever been in!
what’s not so exciting? the dress is $700 and it’s gold. my skin tone + gold = a lovely vomit shade. the dress is beautiful, i’m just not wild about the color. but you know what? it’s her big day and i’m beyond thrilled about all of it. and if this is what i get to wear to help share her excitement, then so be it. who knows, maybe the gold will look really nice in person. 🙂
