Now that it's actually happening, I'm so excited to share it with my sister. She was the first person to know about our surprise wedding. I made her install Skype, and told her 'face to face' (she lives in Country Vic), about the wedding, and then asked her to be my Bride Slave and the look on her face was priceless, she was dumbstruck and had that deer in headlights look.
After a few minutes chatting she took it in and was so excited, for us, and for her involvement.
She immediately went to dresses, colours, styles, etc, I just told her as long as it's in a similar green family as the one I love I'm happy for her to pick a dress she loves, and more importantly one that she will wear again.
After a few more minutes of chatting we signed off.
The next morning (Saturday) I get a text at 9.30am with a photo of my sister in a green dress, then dingding, another comes thru, she's a tad bit excited!
The first was very bridesmaidy, and even though she said she would, I know she wouldn't wear it again, the second was more of an evening wear style dress, just gorgeous, a lovely green with black and purple embroidery.
Because it will be the middle of winter, she's going to get a wrap or shrug or similar, probably in black or purple to go with her dress.
I asked her to tell me honestly which she liked better, she agreed the second one, so she bought it, job done! Not great quality shots, from my sisters phone.
The Runner Up - too bridesmaidy
|The Winner - My slave, sorry sister's dress|
