27 Dresses

I have made 11 trips down the aisle in dresses that I will only wear once. So naturally the movie, 27 Dresses, seemed like it would be one that I could relate to, right? Besides, what better way to celebrate the end of the spring semester than adding this movie to my collection. And like most other girls in the free world, I'm a complete sap when it comes to a good love story with a happily-everafter ending. And as anticipated, the movie delivered a happy ending so all-in-all, I'm glad that I made the purchase. However what I enjoyed most was thinking back on all the fun memories that I have made and been able to be a part of by being in so many weddings myself. It is actually quite humbling to know that there are people who think so much of me to they wanted me standing beside them on one of the most important days in their lives. I loved each one for different reasons and I'm so very thankful that I have had the opportunities to share in such a special time with dear friends and family members who I care about so much. I have joked many times that when it's my turn to wear the white dress I'm just going to hand the dress that I wore back to the respective bridesmaid and have them alter it for my own wedding. Needless to say I was a little perturbed to see that Hollywood stole my idea and did that for the end of the movie so I guess I'll just have to come up with some other creative idea. Perhaps patchwork dresses...

I really wish that I had pictures on my computer from all the weddings because it would make this post so much better but 4 out of 11 is better than none! The first one is from 2001 when Shelley got married. Holy cow...I can't believe that she has been married 7 years this August. Crazy!
Jenn's Wedding in June 2004. This is Wedding #2 of 4 over a period of 6 months. What a fun season!

Suz's Wedding in August 2004. Interesting fact: until this dress, nothing in my closet was baby pink...now I have more baby pink shirts hanging in my closet than I could ever need.

Mag's Wedding in October 2004. Too bad you can't see the super fab flip-flops that she made for her bridesmaids to wear at the reception.

OF COURSE the best ride-in-the-car-to-a-wedding-to-be-a-bridesmaid was by far with you on the way to Plains, GA for Weez's wedding. And you certainly earned a medal of honor for putting up with me during the ride home...
