My sister’s wedding is coming up in a couple of weeks, and we’ve been frantically making the final preparations. She is a chronic procrastinator, and a few days ago she realized she was well behind schedule. So, as the maid of honor, she’s sought out my assistance as we get down to crunch time. I certainly don’t mind helping my sister—in fact, planning the wedding has actually been kind of fun.

However, I also have to make sure that I’m prepared for the big day. Because while I won’t we walking down the aisle, I will be standing up at the altar during the nuptials. Luckily, my sister has amazing taste and all of the bridesmaid dresses are exquisite. For the special occasion, I invested in a new matching set of jewelry and was able to find an affordable lace front wig so I can have a unique style.
