Here comes the bride...and the bridesmaid!

We were sweating like hell...but hey, it's the fun that we had that matters :)

My cousin's wedding has got to be the most economical ever. Being her bridesmaid (and it's my first!), I was expecting make-up artists and hairstylists with their endless supplies of foundation, eyeshadow and hairspray. Instead, we had our hair done at the salon (luckily the hairstylist did a good job on creating 'natural' wavy curls for me) and the bride herself did my make-up! She remarked with distaste that the bridal studio gave her the most horrendous bridal look and decided to use her own make-up skills which were more 'natural'.

Since both of us are the same height, I had to follow whatever heels that my cousin was wearing. I brought along my most outrageously high heels (which I only wore once) and discovered they're the ones I need to wear for the reception. I got panicked for a while with a lot of 'what ifs' popping into my head. 'what if I tripped over my gown?', 'what if I fall off the stage?' But thankfully, I didn't. Even with a bit to drink, I can still swivel and dance and do the twist on my heels without making a fool of myself! And if you're wondering what sort of hideous bridesmaid dress I was wearing (big puffy sleeves,lurid shade of purple,gigantic bows which only look good on flower girls etc)...well it's none of the above! My dress for the day was a sexy, strapless shade of red satin with criss-cross details at the back (my cousin let me choose :) thanks to her hehe) Even some of the guests were confused on which was the actual bride! *teehee*

All in all, the reception went on smoothly and everyone was just happy eating, drinking and dancing (no cute guys though.seriously, WHERE are the cute guys in KK?? Apart from the man of my life of course *winks*) Even though the soles of my feet were burning towards the end of the day, I'm just so happy for the couple and hope for the best for the two lovebirds :)
