The biggest problem we were having is that we'd find a style we like, but it wouldn't come in our colors (black, ivory, apple green). So she's going to take the pictures we pulled from magazines and the paper we selected in her office and make some samples for us to review when we meet again on Feb 1.
We took our first ballroom dance class on Friday night. We've got the basics of the basics down for the foxtrot and almost for swing, but we've got some more practice to do between now and our next lesson- also on Feb 1.
I put together the first of our bridal party newsletters to keep everyone in the loop since we've got coast to coast coverage. Seriously: Maryland, Pennsylvania, Ohio, Indiana, Texas, California. Our friends are everywhere. It's nutty. Our hope is that this will make it easier for everyone to stay up to speed and it'll be an easy way to keep track of everything.
I'm waiting to hear back from my bridesmaids on the dress picture I sent them. I think it meets everyone's criteria and they'll all like it. I've heard back from one who loves it- so that's a good sign. My MOH will need a short jacket as she'll need to be in a nursing bra and those don't really go well with spaghetti straps, but her mom's a seamstress and will do a lovely job, so that's not a problem. Her mom offered to make wraps/jackets for the other girls if they want as well. We'll see what everyone else thinks.
