Wedding Bells are Ringing!

Two of my best friends just got engaged!!!! Congrats to Kent and Marisa  & Cissy and Kevin! Look at how cute these couples are:

Soon to be Mrs. Marisa Cecil and Kent

Soon to be Mrs. Cissy Kalkwarf and Kevin!

I can't wait for their weddings next year. Cissy is getting married in Charleston, SC and Marisa is having a destination wedding in Turks and Caicos! Woo hoo!

Marisa already picked out the bridesmaid dresses and I love them! It is the Kendall Dress Silk Habotai in "Do the Wave"

I went ahead and bought it in a size 4. Now that is wishful thinking considering I have no idea what my body is going to do post-baby. But I found it on sale and I couldn't resist. Plus, I think it will be great motivation to workout and get rid of any baby weight. 

Does anyone know how this dress tends to run? Is it pretty true to size? Sometimes the one shoulder dresses are a little bigger than the other Lilly dresses. Please share if you have any insight!

I spent most of my day looking for 7 of these dresses on sale for the other girls. I had pretty good luck and found 4 on sale. If anyone knows of any Lilly stores with this particular dress on sale, please let me know. We need several more for the rest of the bridesmaids and they are still listed for $268 on the actual Lilly website.

Congrats again MARISA AND CISSY! So happy for yall!!!
