Hello My Name Is Bridezilla: Dress Edition

I understand now how women become Bridezilla. Part of it is because they're crazy, part of it is because planning a wedding it an insane process, and part of it is because people allow it.
Am I becoming bridezilla? Yes. But don't blame me. Blame Pete who says he understands, and blame my cousin Lisa, who tried on dresses for me.

I want a red dress with black sides for my engagement party, and my dress shopping was a huge fail. So my cousin went to the mall on her sister's birthday and spent her time dress shopping.
For me.

She found a ton of red and black dresses, just like I was looking for.

That first one was almost exactly what I wanted.

And then I told her I was looking at a dress on Express' website because there are no Express stores here. So she went there to take a photo.

It's the one on the right, by the way.
Do you want me to try the first one and the Express one on so you can see what they look like? she texted.

OMG, yes, but holy crap. I feel like bridezilla, I said.

No! Don't feel bad. Really, I'm here for whatever you want.

So I told her what to try on, and she said:

Please please please never feel bad to ask. I want to help as much as I can.

And, feeling like Bridezilla, I said: If you say it's okay, then I believe you, but it makes me feel like Bridezilla, like, "Go try on a dress."

So she said: You only get to have one wedding, so I want you to have everything you want, even if that means me going to get it. I want everything perfect for you.

And then she tried on dresses, although noted that she doesn't know how to pose or what kind of faces to make.

She also didn't know her unmatching socks were going to be forever on the internet.

BRIDAL BABBLE: Have you ever tried on a dress for someone?

    Bottom left seems to be the dress you were describing!
    This is what I saw in Express - COLOR BLOCK SWEATER DRESS Style: 7986301 $48.93 not sure if it is fancy enough though.

    1. OMG that is perfect, if it was red. Since the favors are red, I want a red dress. Yes, I'm being picky haha.

  4. I love her faces and socks! Great cousin!
