dum dum de dum

So we now have three best men for our wedding. Apparently this is not weird. I think it is kind of weird, in the sense that it'd be weird to have more than one bride or more than one groom. But it's what he wants so it's what he gets and I'm happy if he's happy (after some convincing-of-self that this will not make the wedding seem a bit silly :P). Of course I'd like them all to be involved as well, but I just thought there was only one best man role.. but then if I'm wearing purple I'm sure he can be untraditional as well. I think the thing that bothered me most - although I don't like to admit it - was the fact that he didn't discuss the third best man thing before asking him to do it.. but shh
I hate wedding planning sometimes (well, 99% of the time)
On a plus side, if Beth is still my flowergirl (it's about 75/25 that she will be) I may just buy her one of these lilac dresses from Next. Quite cheap, and sweet, and would match the purple theme (although I prefer the white dress but it doesn't fit in with the theme so never mind). I hope it doesn't look that sack-like in reality (notagain, I don't suppose there's any chance you have seen these dresses at work?) My parents are actually paying for the bridesmaid dresses, and now I know I have got at least something sorted, I feel a bit better.
Actually, these dresses go up to age 14 and one of the bridesmaids Jess will be 11 - perhaps it'd be better to give her one of these dresses too, and then her 18 year old sister and the maid of honour can wear adult dresses in silver? Does that work? I wasn't sure how to find an adult dress to fit an eleven year old girl, really.
Argh, I feel so out of my depth here! I need a wedding planner like Becky in the Shopaholic book where she has 2 weddings organised..
This is the first resolution I have broken already and it's only 2 and a bit days into January. Whoops.
I know it's boring. It bores me to have to think about it in so many loops. Why can't I be a man and just go "I'll have that please" and forget about it? :P

That's the plan (but not yet, as 2 year olds grow a lot in 7 months and I'd imagine 11 year olds do as well!)
It's not the fitting that I'm wondering about as much as the style - it is a bit babyish isn't it? But then she is still quite young, she will have only just left primary school, so maybe she won't mind.
And no, I didn't see the pic, show me! :)

Well if she's 11 she's old enough to tell you what she thinks :D

As for dresses, I want this in this fabric.

She is from an overly polite family though :P
I could email the pic to her sister and she can show it to Jess. It's a shame they don't have a picture of a teenager wearing it though. Still, there's not much reason to dislike it, I hope :/
Wow, you're going to be a geisha?! How cool is that?! Stu's uncle married a Japanese lady and she wore a kimono that apparently took TWO HOURS to get into. His daughter wore one too :)

Yeah. For years I've been saying I want to get married in an oriental style dress. Someone on chubbychicks put a link up to the site, as she is getting her wedding dress from there (not the same dress! hers is more of a classical design).

Would your bridesmaids (if you're having any) wear the same sort of dress?
It was cool at Stu's uncle's wedding because the groom and his son were in traditional English wedding attire, and the bride and bridesmaid were in Japanese. They were going to feature it in one of these women's magazines because it was unusual but I don't think it happened in the end.

I will probably have my sisters dress up in chinese dresses. Havent thought about it too much yet :) We're not even *officially* engaged yet. Waiting until we can afford to buy a ring and have a party! :)
