WTF? Or ... Why do people suck?!

So, getting married REALLY lets you know who your "real" friends are and that's for sure.

Honestly, I don't understand why people think that showers, bachelor/bachelorette parties, rehearsals, or decoration set-ups are optional.

When someone asks "Hey, would you like to be my bridesmaid?" And you aren't exactly sure that you are going to be able to give them the time and money (if needed) that they deserve ... then say NO. Seriously!

Guess what! People don't ask you to be a bridesmaid just so that you can stand up next to the person. No, they ask you to be a bridesmaid so that you will be there for them or the other bridesmaids when you are needed. They ask you because out of ALL the people that they know, they figure that you are going to have their back ... and help make the couple's wedding even more amazing.

So really, think before you say that you are going to be some one's bridesmaid. There are very few reasons why you can not make it to one of the wedding events. 1) Death (you or family) ... 2) The Miss Texas Pageant. That's it! It's not like you get asked to be a bridesmaid a month before the wedding or the said event. NO ... you have plenty of time to ask off of work, to make arrangements with other things that might come up, and to save money.

Seriously. Has no one heard of a Savings Account or something?

Hi!..Roberta from Aggies Blog.
We have the same Zodiac year!

Any how..I think bridesmaid is a huge commitment too.
I never had one, must husband and I sent out announcements the week before we left. Went to USVI actually!
I couldn't imagine the pressures of planning a wedding..other than for 2 people!
A bridesmaid is a quarterback...tough to find someone who is willing to give guts and glory.
It will all work out for you regardless..because of your devotion for your sweety!!!
Congrats to you girl!!

I'm just glad that I can totally focus on your wedding only. I can't imagine what it will be like when more than one person is getting married at a time. Now THAT'D be a lot of time and money! At least by then I should have a real job with a real salary ;)
