A few months ago, C got engaged. Yey! C and her fiance, J, have been together for a decade now. It’s about time guys! C and I knew each other since 8 years ago, when I was still working in SGV. It’s been 4 years since I left and we’ve remained friends ’til now. If you know how it is working for an auditing firm or anywhere where life can get unreasonably hard, you’ll understand how deep friendships there can get. C and I are like sorority sisters along with the rest of our clustermates.
Now, enough with the personal blabber. This is my congratulations-for-getting-engaged-post for you, C.
I already got excited enough with the news of the engagement. I got even more excited when she sent me these:
I’ve been a bridesmaid several times before, but this is going to be the first time I’ll get a dress that I’ll be able to wear again.
In my disbelief, I IM-ed C, and asked her if she’s sure of the choices she gave. She answered with, “Oo, basta pumili ka kung ano yung masusuot mo pa ulit. (Yes, choose something that you can wear again.)”
She even went on to say that I can look for more bridesmaid dress inspirations if I don’t like any of the designs she sent. At the back of my head, “Yesss, FREE DRESS!”
I’m thinking of getting a very tailored dress, because flow-y ones aren’t usually flattering on me. Also, the motif is midnight blue–frilly dresses can look old-ening in that color. My safest bet is to go with a dress with very clean lines and just adorn myself with accessories. Here are some more choices:
To make these dresses more bridesmaid-looking, I’ll ask the seamstress to make a bow or rose that I can attach (and subsequently detach) to the belt.
I think more brides-to-be should consider doing this. It’s more practical and earth-friendly. (But, I’m not the type to quash your dream entourage, so feel free to do as you please.)
Isn’t C, the best bride ever?
