Everyone knows that when you’re asked to be a bridesmaid, it’s an honour – but it’s also PRETTY scary.
Because you never really know someone until they become a bride. Your friend, who might be placid and understanding has the potential to become a bossy, controlling nightmare bitch as soon as that rock is put on her finger – and as her bestie, you stand to become one of her bridal bitches – I mean, bridesmaids.
That means that you’re pretty much giving up the right to wear what you want, and know suits you, at her wedding. She can put you in anything you want – and you may even have to pay for it – depending on the bride.
That’s not even the worst of it.
If there was a decent collection of bridesmaid dresses to choose from I might be able to swallow the hard truth about being a bridesmaid, but the fact is, everything is floor-length, frumpy, done-to-death and designed for a prom – 10 years ago.
Nothing is sexy.
You know, figure-hugging and modern. Its extraordinarily hard to find something that suits you.
Which is why I am SO excited about Bespoke Bridesmaids; a service that allows you to design your own stunning frocks that are handmade with love in Bali.
They also carry a line of pre-designed stuff that’s ridiculously on the money. Flattering, modern and just not like a traditional bridesmaid dress. Now all you need to do is send your bride the link.
