I am very much a girly girl, so I find this a little disappointing that I have no one to share it with.
Not much to be done about it except vent. So here I am.

Try to be patient and appreciate the fact that they're still willing to be there for you even though it's not really their thing. Make sure that you're not letting wedding stuff dominate all of your conversations with them (I'm not saying you're doing this, just be aware that not everyone is going to be as into it as the bride). Do you have anyone else you can bounce ideas off of- like maybe your Mom or FMIL? Also, instead of focusing on the pampering, etc.. maybe try to find something you guys can do together to celebrate that you'll all enjoy. Good luck and try not to let it get to you, I'm sure they don't intend to hurt your feelings.

I try really hard not to let my wedding stuff dominate conversations. None of my bridesmaids are here in Texas with me, so if I do mention something wedding-related it's only because it's not something I can do here on my own or something I need an opinion about.
Like I said, I'm not really venting because I'm mad - I respect that they are not girly girls and I love them for many, many reasons. I know that this isn't their thing and I love that they are doing this for me REGARDLESS of how they feel about it in particular. I just wish there were times when I could have that giddy girl feeling with them. I happen to love being pampered and feel like it's an important part of the wedding, so they're going to suck it up and "deal" with it. Haha
Thanks, thanks, thanks! I love you guys

Hmmm...let's start with the dresses. Oh how you should go to the thrift shop and purchase some serious BM dresses. Ones that will make them thankful for the real ones. Play a little jokie-joke on them. You know, find the most hideous dresses, the ones we all dread wearing. Personally I promised my girls I would put them in poofy purple dresses with orange polka dots and a hugely unflattering unflattering cut. I WILL be the prettiest on my day Biotches!
Now I would never really do it, or would I? Undecided...
Anyhoo, I think it would make a great funny to show them their NEW dresses...lots and lots and lots of taffeta and tulle!
Next up, find yourself a seriously flamboyant stylist to "consult" your girls. I mean let those gals sit in the chair and "ol' girl" will have at them! And tell him to kick his glam into high gear, we're talking Derek J style. From top to bottom, full finger swaying, snapping and head-shaking. Have him pull out the scissors for effect. It would be FAB-U-LOUS! Talkin' bout "giiirrrrl, you need" and "oh honey, seriously." Be sure to have photographer on site to catch their reactions... Only when they are completely hot with anger do you let them know it's a gag.
If they won't have fun with you, you'll just be forced to make them your fun!
