I've been dedicating a reasonable amount of energy to bridal party apparel these days - don't get me wrong, its not because I am desperately concerned, its just one more thing I'd like to be able to tick off as done. And I imagine for those lucky ladies and gents who are standing with us in the bridal party, they would probably like to get it taken care of so they can stop receiving emails from me.
So I spent a reasonable amount of time and effort, and the past few days, keep experiencing some setbacks. Nothing is really working out as planned - I bought a bunch of cute fabric roses on Etsy that were supposed to go along with my large peach one, to make bridesmaid sashes...and they are just not at all the right colour. And I was so disappointed when I opened up the box... no fault of the lovely lady who sold them to me, I just flat out made a mistake and bought the wrong thing, but its going to cost me something like $9 to return them.
We keep going back and forth about bridesmaid shoes. I oscillate about feeling bad even asking people to wear matching shoes, to just wishing we could find something magical that will make everyone happy...I'm tired, and I know I am frustrating my ladies.
So now, opinions:
Do you like this tie?

what about these earrings, these are lovely, right?

Help? I am beginning to think that I am not even capable of helping select suits for the groomsmen, and you would think that would be easy...but there is something about menswear that makes me feel helpless from the beginning.
Breathe. 8 months to go.
