Skip and Jaime's wedding is in 22 weeks. As a bride trooper I have been given free reign for what my outfit will be. I was going to wear a Utilikilt
, but I am too fat to wear one. They don't come in my size. So, the plan has changed. Unless I magically lose 15 inches off my waist in the next 22 weeks.
I'm leaning toward one of the following:The Probably Most Appropriate for a Wedding Section:
Betsey Johnson Evening Sequins dress
(Honestly, I want this dress even if not for the wedding.)
Betsey Johnson Burnout Stripe Organza dress
(Ditto. I love this dress too.)The Cheongsam Section
I love Cheonsam, Qi Pao, "That Chinese Type of Dress", whatever you want to call it. As much as I think I look like a bloke in a dress, I still fantasize of having a vast collection of Cheongsam that I wear on a regular basis.
Aberrance Dragon Burnout cheongsam
Lake Blue cheongsam
Traditional Dragonfly cheongsam
(The longer I look at this dress, the more matronly it looks to me.)
Xi Shang Mei Shao cheongsam
(While I do like this one, it is meant mostly as a joke. Jaime told me their wedding colours are earth tones. As in, if it exists on earth, it's an earth tone. I went for a choice that looks to have just about every colour on it.)The Geek Section that only this bride and groom would appreciate:
The Joker Suit. Really. (But not the makeup or hairstyle. Part of me really wants to do this and photograph the bride's reaction when she realizes what I am wearing. The dark colours would be appropriate for a fall wedding.)
(I'd like to think somewhere, Dr. Billings is looking down on this with a smile of approval. Man wore a fierce suit.)
Black Velvet Suit
(What? I look really good in velvet. I swear in a past life I was a gay man of leisure.)
----OR-----The suck it up section
Suck it up and work my ass off for the next 22 weeks to lose 15 inches off my waist so I can wear a utilikilt.**
**Utilikilts are not a requirement, but from what I can tell, most of the wedding party, bride the exception, will be in kilts.
