- Wedding: December 2012
I’m having a small wedding (50 guests) and I know you’re supposed to have a small bridal party if you’re having a small wedding. I’m definitely having my twin sister as my Maid/Matron of Honor and my older sister as a bridesmaid. I wish I could just stop there…but I have to have my best friend in it too..shes like a sister. So definitely the 3 of them.
But I have 2 other friends I feel guilty not including. We’ve been friends since 2nd grade. It was always me, my twin sister, and these two friends together. Im closer to one than the other. One of the girls, Jenna, used to be inseparable from me. We aren’t as close anymore but we do talk like once a month. She was the one who was with me 5 years ago when I found out I was pregnant, she was at the baby shower, stayed at the hospital the whole time I was in labor and gave birth, and she has come to all 4 of my son’s birthday parties. She spent Christmas with me and my family a few years ago. She was at my sister’s wedding and baby shower. She’s here for all the big events in our life. But we don’t talk much in between these big events. We don’t just talk on the phone anymore, don’t even text much. We hang out a few times a year. But I think we are just at such different stages of our life that its a little different than it used to be. But of course when we are together it’s right back where we left off! She’s been with me through every big event in my life so i want her to stand by me when I get married….but we don’t talk often and aren’t as close as we used to be so I don’t know?
And my other friend who was part of the “group”, well we’re not very close but I see her a lot because she works with my sister. She has also been to all of my sons birthday parties and any other of myfamily member’s special events. She’s amazing and I love her, been friends since we were 8..but we just aren’t super close. I feel like if I have my other friend, Jenna as a bridesmaid, I also have to have her as a bridesmaid..because it was always us together.
I feel bad leaving anyone out. I’m so confused! How did you pick your bridesmaids?!
