Bridals by Sandra

I am honored to have been asked to serve as an attendant in my friend Courtney's wedding. It's been a while since my last bridesmaid duty, so I'm a little rusty. Luckily she is incredibly organized and enthusiastic, and the other bridesmaids are funny and sweet, just like she is.

I had my doubts about the dress, I'll be honest. I don't favor dresses that have a mermaid shape generally, due to my curvy frame and general clumsiness. However, the milk-chocolate color of the dress Court selected is very pretty, and will complement the flowers and decor (light greens and yellows). I held out hope. I picked my dress up from Bridals by Sandra (56 East Lawn Road, Nazareth) today, and once I tried it on, I absolutely loved it. It needs a little bit of alteration (it's strapless, and a little loose around the chest) but the length is great, and the mermaid shape I feared is actually flattering. A sash ties in the back and lays low and flat against the dress.

I purchased my wedding dress from Sandra's, and I really enjoyed working with the staff. They have to be poised, detail-oriented and friendly. If I worked in a bridal shop, I'd probably take up turkey hunting or tae kwon do to balance all that tulle and lace. I wonder how they put up with all those bridezillas, prom princesses, and mothers of the bride! The store is quite large, and in addition to bridal gowns, mother of the bride outfits, and bridesmaid dresses, it also offers tuxedo rentals and tons of shoes and other accessories.

Anyone else a bridesmaid/matron this summer? Any ideas for a unique shower gift?
