As some of you may know - Mr. News Readin's sweet sister is tying the knot in October.
She has graciously asked me to be one of her bridesmaids. At first I was just simply honored - but now...now I am over the moon! Check out her bridesmaid dress pick:
It looks navy in the image, but it's really more of a cadet blue. And hellooo...it has pockets!
Every bridesmaid is relieved when the dress choice ends up being something they are not ashamed to wear in public or will be mistaken for a pageant gown or Halloween costume.
She would NEVER pick this...but I've seen some doozies lately that have been chosen by perfectly normal girls. For example - a lavender Grecian drape halter dress. Trust me. It is way worse than it sounds. And it sounds pretty bad in my opinion. (My poor friend Jennifer was subjected to such an atrocity.)
Back to our Belle.
Guess who has been charged with shoe and accessory recommendations? OMG. I'm so excited - I can't even take it.
So, let's hear it from those of you who frequent the Breaking News Room. I know you are chocked-full of chic suggestions. I've got a few of my own already...to be posted at a later date.
I'm not kidding. You are officially being solicited for shoe and accessory finds. There may be some swag for my favorites...
Yours in Bridesmaid Bliss,
Mrs. News Readin'
Edited to add:
Contributing reporter Stereos and Souffles raised some good questions. Good woman!
The wedding ceremony is at 6:00 pm. The groomsmen are not wearing tuxes. Not sure if they have decided on khaki suits or tan trousers and navy sport coats. Flowers will be white.
Stay tuned for more Mrs. News Readin' takes over - ummm - I mean helps plan a wedding.
