Dear Blueberry Princess, Part 2:

Mom has two options for the dress she wears to your wedding. You probably think this is silly, but trust me when I say that it will be easier for all concerned if you state a preference. We are most comfortable when everything about a wedding is a dictatorship, right down to the way we wear our hair. (Yikes -- I didn't show you the hair clip I bought!) We would probably go get fitted for contact lenses if you decided that everyone should have green eyes.

I am exaggerating for comic effect, but not by much. Here goes.

To remind you, this is the dress we showed you earlier:

This dress is a light silver colour. It has a long-sleeved, netted sweatery thing that goes over the top.

Here's the new dress:

And a better view of the detailing on the same dress:

This one is darker gray and short-sleeved in a satiny material. It may or may not be the same material as your bridesmaids' dresses. This may or may not be OK with you. The skirt is long and in the same style as the bridesmaids' dresses. Same wrap, same purse.

Princess, you are now forced to choose between them. This will make our lives much, much easier. Let us know which you prefer.

Hmmm.... It'd be a lot easier to compare between the two if she hadn't put on like 15 pounds since the first picture was taken... heheheh!
