and i am beyond stoked! the wedding is 4 months away (Halloween to be exact) so i have plenty of time to diet and exercise to look good in my dress.
however, i don't know jack about formal weddings. yeah, i was married however we just had his chaplain marry us lakeside with nobody but our kids present so i really don't know all there is to know about weddings.
for instance, ive heard sometimes they pay for the bridesmaid dress and sometimes the bridesmaid pays for it herself? i have no issues buying the dress, but i also don't know if i'm suppose to or not. is this the kind of thing that is assumed unless stated otherwise? i would feel so rude asking her.
and am i suppose to coordinate now with the maid of honor? or will she contact me?
also, one of my daughters will be one of her flower girls and she's bringing the dress over today to see which one it will fit. is there anything i should know about flower girl 'duties' or anything of that nature?
if it's as simple as just showing up the day of the wedding in our gowns then i think i can handle that. but i'm afraid there's all this extra traditional stuff that i have no clue about.

When I got married, I had a maid of honor & 3 bridesmaids. We all went to the dress shop & I let them pick out which dress THEY could all agree on. I just knew what color I wanted. That worked out great. The 4 of them helped plan my bachelorette party & my maid of honor & my mom planned the bridal shower. The flower girl may need a little bit of practice besides doing it once at rehearsal. Depends on the age. The best part is getting to the reception & all your worries about the day slip away! lol :p Hope you have a great time! :)
