As I mentioned back here, I was MIA for two weeks because I had two uber-important weddings to attend for some of my closest friends. And let’s just say it: Nothing messes with your body issues like getting married. Y’all have read how I dealt with that pressure (banning bathroom scales, freaking out about my teeth, going rogue on bridal makeup) but one thing we haven’t talked about a whole bunch on here is the very specific and extra weird pressure that comes from choosing your wedding dress. I mean, it can be epic.
So here is my friend Kate, to tell you about how she faced down this pressure and dealt with it in a pretty unique way.
Oh, and just for clarification, when it’s italics, it’s VA talking and when it’s not italics, it’s Kate talking. Got that? Here we go.
There Kate is, up top, with her lovely new husband Jason, looking like Audrey Fricking Hepburn. But it wasn’t all rainbows and unicorns getting to that point.
