I know what I should do, and what you are going to tell me to do, but I just need to hear it, I guess. My son is getting married in August of 2013. The bride has been having trouble settling on a bridesmaids' dress, but I began shopping for my own dress. I have fallen in love with a dress, and it looks great on me, if I do say so myself. However, over the Thanksgiving weekend, my kids were all home for the holiday and my daughter brought with her the dress that was chosen as the bridesmaids' dress. Of course, my dress and the bridesmaid dress are very nearly the identical color. You certainly would never mistake me for a bridesmaid, but I do have to choose another dress, don't I?
