Time spent on finding a decent strapless bra: 3 hours
Time spent finding shoes that won't kill me: 4 hours
Time spent altering bridesmaid's dress: 1 hour.
The bra is on the tight side (at least it won't fall), the shoes will kill me even though the heel is unusually low (I actually settled on the same pair of shoes I wore in the LAST wedding I was in...but lost somehow), and the dress needed $110 worth of alterations due to the fact that I lost at least 15 lbs. Total damage so far to be outfitted for this wedding: around $320.
Number of weddings I'll agree to be in after this one: ZERO.
I swear I'm eloping. I'm just no good at this wedding stuff. I will say this though, I'm very proud of my sister, for being pretty calm and avoiding the title of "Bridezilla". I realize this could be much worse.
I think my parents are beginning to feel it too, because between the 3 of us we were able to extinguish almost and entire bottle of Jack Daniels stowed away on top of the fridge.
