I would like to think of myself as someone who has some pretty awesome friends. These are the kind of friends you end up at Bingo with when you are 80…old, blue-haired bitches wearing scarves around their pincurls. And our husbands all ignore our ridiculousness.
So you tell me why they don’t love me enough to let me be in their weddings?
After all, it’s all about ME. Lol.
You see all these movies that tell you that you are going to be in each other’s weddings and hate your dress, and it’s one big happy mess, but you remember it for the rest of your life.
I was a bridesmaid once…in ONE of my TWO sister’s weddings. It was very nice…my dress was halfway decent. My other sister didn’t have either one of her two sisters in her wedding. I am still upset about that, and it was like 6 years ago. I think she may realize the error of her ways, now that the friends she picked turned out to be fair-weathered.
Most of my closest friends were married before I knew them, OR they had small weddings, not having attendants, other than a sister.
My divorced/divorcing friends will probably not have another wedding if they get married. You just don’t see it often.
My best friend, I will call her “Sir”…got married in Vegas a few years ago. It was a lovely wedding, but low key, so she didn’t have traditional attendants. Only her sister and her husband’s best friend. Yes, I was disappointed, but I understood, given the location. I still carried out my Best Friend duties of helping where needed and planning the Bachelorette party, at which I am a master.
Now HER sister is getting married. She’s been like my little sister since I was 10. She’s also the last of the bunch, and she’s become one of my best friends over the years since she got too tall for me to terrorize.
And guess what?
I’m a bridesmaid, bitch.
Although, I think it’s out of guilt….and I’m okay with that.
She didn’t want a large bridal party either, mostly due to the men we all marry, don’t have a lot of dude friends to wear a monkey suit and stand up for them. But she realizes she needs my "expert" planning skills, and since we talked about it since we were young and she was one of my bridesmaids, it’s come full circle. In any case, I am very excited and honored to be a part of it.
