::Ladies in waiting::

I have four ladies standing up with me on my big day. They are all very important and special to me and I could not imagine my wedding without them by my side.

First there's Amber my older and only Sister and MOH. I knew she'd be my MOH before I even met my FI. We fought like crazy growing up but we were also partners in crime and became really close when I was a Freshman in HS and she was a Senior.

Then there's Kari. We started hanging out because our men are friends. Over time we grew closer and closer. In a lot of ways I feel like we're kindred spirits.  

Sierra has become like a second sister. She's the same age as my Sister and sometimes reminds me of Amber. We finish each other's sentances and thoughts and are often times on the same page. I was recently her MOH in her Nov 2011 wedding. 

Last, but certainly never least is my FSIL Amanda. I met her when she was 12 and since then I've had the pleasure of watching her grow into a beautiful young lady. She's spunky and wacky but she's quite fun and loving too. We're built a wonderful relationship over the years. 

I wanted to find my girls something that fits them comfortably and that's fun and something they'll want to wear again. I also wanted to keep the dresses between $100-150. 

I loved the idea of having them in a different dress but same color. legentry's ladies were my inspiration. I loved the idea of my girls in Teal but I know they'd re-wear pewter again so they'll be in pewter.

Here is what Amber and Sierra are wearing

Here is what Kari will be wearing to accomodate her pregnancy bump! :)

And Amanda will be wearing this one

For shoes, I'm only requiring silver heels or flats. They don't need to be all matchy matchy.

I would like to get them these necklaces (were purchased) from etsy seller whitetulipboutique as part of their gift and have them tied with teal blue ribbon. Then again I may attempt to make them myself.

I bought this hair flower for my Sister to wear so that she stands out a little as my MOH! Found on etsy by seller: SarasBoutique

We don't have hobby lobbies - I'll check Michael's. Thanks for the tip, I'll try these out next month. Hopefully that'll save me some $$$ :)

hobby lobby, and trust me I've never made jewelry before either and I was nervous but it was so easy and fast!

Thanks Elle, maybe I can DIY them after all. I have never made jewelry before so I lack confidence in myself that they will turn out looking nice and not cheap, where did you get your pearls from?

those braclets and necklaces are very easy to make and super cheap i made some for my BM's and I.


this was my first attempt ever
