Last Thursday I went to see 27 dresses with about 10 other ladies. We all got dressed up, either in nice dresses, or in former bridesmaids dresses.
We ate in the mall food court first, and then went to see the movie. It created quite a stir as we made our way through the mall. We got some “Hi Baby”s and stares.
At the place where I ordered dinner, the chef came out of the kitchen and asked if I could take pictures with him. I posed for cell phone photos with the two chefs and one waitress. It was fun to be dressed up, but still wearing fun shoes and not spending time and money on the hair and makeup. Some of the girls wore their Crocs under their bridesmaid dresses! The movie itself was pretty good, though fairly predictable. The dress scenes were great though! I’m thankful the ladies I’ve been fortunate to stand up with have good taste, and didn’t feel the need to make sure their bridesmaids looked awful!
The most repeated line of the movie is “You can shorten it and wear it again!” which is often said, but not that likely.
Well I’m fortunate to have been able to get at least 2 wearings out of the three formal dresses I’ve owned. My high school grad dress also got to play a role in our French soap opera (a final project we filmed in grade 12) and I wore it to a Christmas banquet my first year of college -- that was the one that I decided to get my ear pierced than morning and ended up fainting in the mall…..i had a bruise on my face, but an nice dress!
My dress for Carmen’s wedding was a pretty blue one that I was able to wear again for college grad, since she got married in Sept. of 2003, my final year. And last week I wore my fantastic red dress from Johanna’s wedding. I have to say though, I’m glad I don’t have to wear formal clothes every day!
Any more suggestions for theme movie events? It makes the whole day so much more fun and memorable. If you have a chance, you should try it!
