need help with wedding outfit please! i am useless at this stuff
I have bought a dress for my wedding in september http://www.polyvore.com/cgi/thing?id=1361089 and now need a shrug to cover my arms which I don't really like. Any ideas anyone? I haven't worn a dress since i was about 7!
Hi jumpingdizzy - I like the long armed one (really really hate my arms but the dress was in the sale and I liked it!) will have a think about that - thanks.
lilmissmummy - I will have a look at that website, thanks. We are getting married on 20th Sept and is a very small do in a registry office. It is all a bit last minute and I am now getting very panicky. Are you getting married soon?
While you are both showing an interest - the dress has gold sequin detail on it - do you think I shoud, have a gold shrug and shoes or stick with silver? Any ideas on shoes?? being cheeky I know! tee hee! I really appreciate your help!
Ummm I think you should stick with the silver only because you can get loads of different shade of gold and you dont want to look too much like a fairy off of a christmas tree IMO I think you should stick to silver.
Thats what I was afraid of - I have an image of dp shielding his eyes as I appear! I'm not having any bridesmaids, it really is a tiny little last minute do. Maybe I should organise a couple so i can dress them appallingly so I look better. No one I know likes their arms but I despise mine with a passion, I have even been doing boxercise in an attempt to get them nice. For me that really is desperate!
Boxexercise is dreadful, lots of press ups and running. I do enjoy the punching (whilst visualising over critical mil) but thats it, the rest is hell. I want to go back to being pregnant eating maltesers by the bucketful and watching life on mars.
Just seen another shrug - can I have your opinions - too sparkly up top?
Oh me tooo- I always lost weight when pregnant too- no matter how much I ate- it was excellent- and people commented on how well you were looking (well they did with my first! With my second I was always a bit green)!!! I keep trying to persuade H2B to have another especially as there is a year before we get married but he would like to wait til afterwards!
I cant view the link can you see if you can post it again for us please?
