After lots of searching on Ebay, at the mall, and anywhere that might possibly carry purple dresses, we finally have a dress for Alex to wear as my one and only bridesmaid! The search for this dress seemed never ending! There was lots of emailing back and forth between my mom, Alex, and I with messages full of links and disagreement on color, style, price, etc. I’m happy to have this under our belt & I’m really happy with the outcome.
Here is the dress we finally all agreed on:
After we found the dress, I came across some Steve Madden flats on sale, so I picked those up as part of Alex’s bridesmaid gift(s). Don’t worry, she knows about them already, so I’m not ruining any surprises.
I also bought these lovely and simple pair of amethyst stud earrings from one of my favorite Etsy sellers: Lost and Fawned. They arrived this week & I love them.
I’m also looking to pick up one of these burned silk flower hair clips for her hair. I’ve been loving these since they first started becoming popular on Etsy. I don’t really have enough hair to wear them myself, so the wedding is becoming my excuse to shop for them. Here’s one of my favorites so far from FlowerThyme on Etsy.
The last thing for Alex will be a necklace. I haven’t decided if I’m buying one or making one myself (or having my mom make one), but I’m glad we’ve got this part of the wedding under control.
Still got some work to do on the groomsman. We’ve been tossing around some ideas to help make things as affordable as possible for Kevin. Once I have more news on that front, you’ll know. (P.S. If you find some nice looking khaki or gray sports coats for a good price, give me a heads up, please.)
