Trenchcoats, Bridesmaids, Archives & Bloggers Of Note

Wow our skies are filled with cold rain and gray, going from hot sunny BBQ weather to this in a matter of days. My best bet is that I should try to make the most of the situation and pull out from storage some of my "in-between seasons" jackets. That nice trenchcoat that I didn't get to wear all year is coming out!

Something else unusual has just happened to me. I have just been asked to be a bridesmaid. Weddings are such magical events to attend but I see the toll that it is taking on the bride and the maid of honor. They are both sleepless and glued to the phone making arrangements.

I felt honored to be asked to be a bridesmaid. Even if it looks like it is going to be a busy busy wedding, I do look forward to helping out with the event and giving my utmost support to the bride and the maid of honor. I have already planned a list of things to go into my artillery bag. Things like bobby pins, Bach's Rescue Remedy, safety pins, packs of Party Feet, and mini hairspray to stop a run in stockings.

When she called me to ask if I would play the part, I remember myself thinking about some very important questions: Will I be able to take the dress in for alterations after the event (or even before)? What type of entertainment do we give the bride on Hen Night? etc. etc. I really would love it if any of you would have advice for me on how to be a good bridesmaid and what do I do if I can't stand talking to one of the groomsmen anymore?

Thanks so much darling for showing me some anniversary love. I love the support and networking that I've been doing with you and other blogs.

Congrats on being a bridesmaid! I was asked to be on early this year but my bride has no clue when the wedding will be yet, lol...so I'm coasting until she gives me a call. This will be my first bridesmaid experience so we'll be learning together! Have a wonderful upcoming weekend!

Thank you darling for your very lovely and stylish comment! You are so sweet!

A good trenchcoat makes a person super stylish, no matter what weather! I have one trenchcoat I love a lot and that's the only reason makes me like windy days :) A great in-between jacket is hard to find, but once you've got one, you will love it for years!

Being a bridesmaid sounds so sweet, romantic, maybe busy but totally worthy it! Have a great weekend xxxxxxxx
