I did Brittani's makeup (and applied false eyelashes - a first for her) and assisted some of the other bridesmaids with their makeup. It was so much fun to sit and enjoy makeup with so many girls!!!!

DRESS: lace Diane Von Furstenberg
EARRINGS: an old pair of Stephanie Somers (the stones were matte rather than sparkly - so they were not too over-the-top)
and finished with
SHOES: my nude "go-to" LK Bennett heels.
LESSON: Yes, you can wear non-maternity clothes, especially when you are not quite ready for maternity wear. However, this dress in a size 4 needed to be altered because it was too big across the back but not too big in the waist. I normally wear an altered down size 2 for DvF (but her size 0 typically is too small on at least one part of my body, so I buy her 2s). All in all, once the tummy grows another few inches, I will be glad to switch to maternity wear - even if it is expensive. On the positive side, I can get this dress altered after the baby and wear it in the future!
