wishin’ and hopin’…

September 10, 2009

when i think of bridesmaids, i think of the opening credits of “my best friend’s wedding” with nancy sinatra’s “wishin’ and hopin'”.  i’m not sure why, but i think it might be because it showcases how a bridesmaid is constantly behind the brides helping her out?  maybe?

i am extremely lucky and flattered that i will be a bridesmaid for my high school best friend’s wedding next june.  i am also bombarding her with details she should be thinking about which may make her feel not so lucky that she asked me to be one.  nevertheless, i am so very happy for her and sending her as much love from this coast to the midwest.  we share many…MANY…outrageously silly moments and some memories that i will never ever forget.  i won’t embarass her on here 🙂

but helping her out, got me thinking..what are the trends for bridesmaids today?  what are some out of the ordinary ways to dress up a bridesmaid, but not out shine the bride?

thanks to one of my favorite website stops, utterly engaged, my answer came as clear as day.  from their latest e-zine, take a look at these, and pay attention to the floral bouquets as well!  i’m wishin’ and hopin’ that i had one of these dresses myself…or at least one of those bouquets!
