In two days, two bosom friends will tie the know at St. Mary's Church. This will be the first wedding we will attend in Dubai and since Hubby is given a special role, we've been shopping around for clothes to match the pink and white motif.
I found a pink long-sleeved shirt at Ted Lapidus for Hubby. It greatly complements his new striped burgundy necktie so shopping for him was very easy. I, on the other hand chose to look for a white dress because it is more versatile. I mean I can still find some events to wear white, right?
But what do you know, winter is the worst to go shopping for a white cocktail dress. I went to Zara, Mango, Splash and River Island but dresses were in jewel tones of purple, dark pink, and jade! For three days, I went from one shopping mall to another and set my sights on a summery pink floral dress from Carrefour. Hubby objected and we went back to Dubai Mall tonight. And there in my old favorite store New Look, I found the dress on a mannequin hahhaaa! Good thing that the store was giving a 25% discount for the weekend.
And we are all ready now. We will be meeting the future bride and groom tomorrow for a special lunch and I am oh so excited to see the glittering engagement ring! We missed their engagement party because we were on a holiday. The groom-to-be previously related that he spent days and nights reading and getting tips on engagement rings. He is so knowledgeable now that the bride-to-be left him to decide the style and type of metal for their wedding band lol!
