Not really a rant or vent, because I’m not upset/angry…just a little sad.
Found out last night that one of my three bridesmaids is moving all the way across the country in less than 2 months for a new (better!) job. I couldn’t be happier that she’s getting out of her current situation job-wise, but I can’t help but be sad at the same time. I’m not worried at all about wedding things being impacted (honestly I don’t care all that much about my BMs helping with much of anything haha) and she will still be involved.
Just a little sad to think about how I won’t have her around all the time.

You can always look at it as an excuse to travel to the other side of the country more often!

I didn’t live in the same state as any of my bridesmaids and it was fine. Sure it’s nice to see your friends all the time, but most people don’t live in the same town their whole lives. With all of the means of communication these days, I feel like I still see them all the time 🙂

@ebarnes0: That is sad! One of my good friends recently moved from Oregon to Alabama and i miss her so much! We text constantly but…it’s not the same. You’ll have to both make it a point to schedule trips or maybe meet halfway for a girls weekend.

I am a bridesmaid in my best friend’s wedding this summer. She got engaged in July and I (somewhat unexpectedly) moved 800 miles away two months later. It definitely sucks and I miss her to pieces, but we keep in touch a lot through texts/phone calls. I love hearing about her wedding plans even if I can’t be right there to help her with everything.
And if you can swing it, please plan a trip out to visit her! I desperately wish one of my friends would come visit me. It can be lonely living in a new city!

Have regular skype dates! I know it isn’t the same, but seeing her will actually make you feel closer than just texts and phone calls.

Thanks ladies 🙂
I won’t be able to swing any trips between now and the wedding (no extra money for anything) but she will be coming at least twice to visit before it. After the wedding, I will for SURE be going to visit.
It’s also one of the two areas of the country my FI and I have talked about moving to in the future so there’s also that.
It’s still a little sad. I’m so excited for her new job! Just having a bit of a hard time with everything else.
