My quest for the perfect black bridesmaid dress has begun. When you’re asked to be someone’s bridesmaid it brings about a ton of emotions and questions (for me anyway). Feeling excited to celebrate love, dressing up and then asking yourself, when’s the wedding, what should I wear, how am I going to do my hair, what color shoes will I wear?

One of my best friends Nicole and her fiance are true examples of real life love. Their story is that of a fairy tale. From a serendipitous meeting one weekday night to getting engaged in Europe. They are two people who inspire me and who I can’t wait to see walk down the aisle. I’m sure I’ll be crying uncontrollably when that happens so I plan to stock up on lots of waterproof mascara. I’ll never forget the morning she and her now fiance called me on Skype to tell me the big news- boy should I have put on waterproof mascara then. All Nicole had to do was lift up her left hand and I knew, as soon as I saw the bling I started bawling like a baby. I’d never felt so overcome with joy and excitement all in one moment.

Now that wedding planning is in full force, I’m beginning my search for the perfect bridesmaid dress. Below are some of my ideas so far. I’m sure I’ll be posting more wedding related stuff moving forward, it’s an exciting life event I’m thrilled I get to be a part of.

If you or anyone you know has knowledge or tips for a first time bridesmaid I’d love to hear them!
