Bridesmaids driving me slightly nuts
Posted 17 July 2009 - 04:12 PM
The kicker is that out of 7, I was a bridesmaid or maid of honor for 4 of them (and 2 are not yet married). I threw multiple showers, attended out of town bachelorette parties - whatever made them happiest. I have to say, I was a darn good bridesmaid. Now I feel like it's finally my turn, and I'm an afterthought. And 3 of them JUST had babies in the last 45 days, so they are not attending anything that is not in their hometown (which is most stuff).
The last thing that almost made me lose it is that my bachelorette/shower is in a month (in a different city where people will have to travel) and the invitations are yet to go out.
I know this is my fault for caving, but part of me just wants to scream "Suck it up bridesmaids!". The moral is "do unto others as you would have done unto you, but don't expect to get the same in return or you will be very disappointed"!
End of rant. I can stop typing so hard now!

It does suck how people are non supportive when their turn arrives to be BMs, etc. And not only that...for weddings in general. I have always been supportive of friend's weddings and a lot of the persons in which i sent gifts and attended did not do a thing for me. I just learned after that to just give my congrats to people when these things happen and be there for those who are there for me.

When I was a bridesmaid in the 1st wedding, it was my cousin's and my mom told me that it was my job to make sure the bride had everything she needed. I was there for her 1st and then for me 2nd....I guess I really took that to heart because she still teases me about being her mini shadow for the day, she said I was the best bridesmaid because I was always just a glace away if she needed anything I tried to make sure I was like that for every wedding I was in after that, even when the flower girl broke my big toe nail 1/2 off right before walking down the aisle in wedding #2 lol
