My sister mentioned to me that MSN.com had an article on 'Dresses Bridesmaids Want to Wear'. I was scanning through and found this:
Perfect. Figure flattering on everyone, simple, can ACTUALLY be worn again, not too expensive (I've seen it for about $120-$130), not covered in rhinestones, doesn't look like a quincenera dress, can be ordered on the internet or through tons of specialty bridal stores, not slutty, etc etc.
So now, I guess I have to tell my sister/maid of honor 'I owe you', but I know she's going to request something ridiculous, like 'let me punch you in the face before the wedding', or 'let me kiss your fiance', or 'get me a bathtub filled with nacho cheese and slices of dry salami for dipping' (this is seriously close to one of her lifelong dreams). I guess I'd go with the last request.
