Four Weddings...

I have 4 ... F-O-U-R... 4 weddings to attend to in the next 5 months.

Fook ... I'm going to be so broke.

I've also happily accepted the bridesmaid position for 2 out of those 4 upcoming weddings. Which means with the previous 3 times, I'll be putting on a bridesmaid dress for the 5th time. (Starting to get that feeling that everyone around me is getting hitched... )

Due to timing constraints, I managed to con my 2nd Aunty into helping me make my bridesmaid dress for the wedding in September. (The bride-to-be only just passed me the material last week). I doubt I could have found a dressmaker willing to make this in time for the wedding.

The only major catch to this is that my Aunty is in Perth. I'm in Sydney. Which means I wouldn't be able to try it on until the morning I arrive back in Perth. Which also happens to be the day of the wedding.

Since I wont be available for any fittings, my Aunty has to base the dress on one of my previous bridesmaid dresses. Something I wore 2 years ago.

There has been quite a bit of a difference (body mass index-wise) between now and two years ago.

I asked my Aunty to make 'certain areas' slightly bigger... but she said that might ruin the original design of the dress.

So for the next month or so I have to slim back down to what I was two years ago.

Guess I'll be eating salad for the rest of the month..

I was thinking of taking a month break playing WoW but I guess I'll need a job asap! =P

But on the other hand, I'm really happy for all the couples. When is it your turn? =P Don't throw me a surprise like the rest k?
