Diaries of the Maid of Honor (13-Apr-10)

Chapter 1 - The Preparation Goes On (dresses and gowns)

Well well... how should I begin here. As my sister Mich is getting married soon, the bridesmaids have been busy discussing and preparing for the wedding stuffs. For myself, yes it's MY BEST FRIEND'S WEDDING! I've always fancy wedding theme movies since teenage days, because I have always wondered how beautiful and warmhearted a wedding will be, especially when I have the chance to be a bridesmaid. I've been watching 5x time or more on some of the following movies -- My Big Fat Greek Wedding, 27 Dresses, My Best Friend's Wedding, The Wedding Singer, and blah blah blah -- simply because I love the dresses and gowns, and the wedding preparations and settings~


Finally I'm half way through the days of becoming the maid of honor for sister Mich, exactly 7 months from today before I fit into the bridesmaid dress and holding the bridesmaid hand bouquet. So much things to do, as it's not just another normal wedding. I know sis wants a theme as something warm and elegant, a more western style thingy despite the Chinese wedding dinner. It's a church wedding, and we also think it's gonna be really wonderful... I can't wait for the day to come.

Sis picked Valeria Fan as her wedding gown designer, and I really really love you...for the tailor-made 3 pieces of bridesmaid dresses for Ka Meng, Mei Theng and myself. It's not something cheap...you've been saving $$ for your wedding and now our dresses are eating up a portion of your wedding expenses.. I know you wouldn't wanna allow us to say NO for the dresses, so I'll accept it. =) I know we've had a lot of opinions on the design since you announced your big day and also the wedding theme, but at least we've finalized the color. Hahha... pink, fuchsia, red... all the stunning colors under the hot sun during photography session on your wedding day. I believe you'll have the most stunning entourages on your wedding day, not just your bridesmaids, but also the groomsmen.

Sis I dedicate this series of posts about your wedding specially for you (I know you're lazy to write =P, so I write on your behalf lol). Let's keep all the good memories here, in pictures and words, and when we've become old ladies in future, we can still show our grandchildren about the sisterhood we shared for decades.
