Time for a report from wedding central.
Bride: bridal gown is ready to go, but DD#1 has requested a few more minor modifications, if time allows
Bridesmaids: two of the three bridesmaids dresses are complete and the last one just needs a zipper
Groom: vest just needs buttons and buttonholes
Groomsmen: three burgundy bow ties complete
Father of the bride: clothes ready to go
Mother of the bride: Oh, dear! What am I going to wear?
I hate clothes shopping — nothing fits right.
I dislike formal clothes — they’re usually sweaty polyester.
I don’t like dresses — they make me feel like I have no pants on.
I told everyone long ago that I was wearing pants to the wedding. So the lower half is taken care of. It’s the upper half that’s the problem. I was hoping to lose more weight. Instead, I gained weight over the last two months. Might be understandable, but I still need to choose something to wear, and extra weight makes it even harder.
After searching for something for the last few months, I was feeling rather rebellious this afternoon. Okay, annoyed and cranky. I decided, if the bridesmaids are going to wear curtains and tablecloths, then I am, too. How about that?
Out came the scissors. Out came a tablecloth that had a pretty scalloped edge. (I had planned to use it elsewhere at the wedding, so now I’ll have to find a different tablecloth for that location.)
Anyway, here it is. (Of course, when I took the photo I tucked the jacket in at the waist so it looks smaller than it actually is!)
I plan on wearing it with simple black slacks and a burgundy shirt.
