    SEVEN times – okay three of them I was a flower girl but old enough to remember 🙂 I am a little over it because I don’t LOVE being on display, I hate being fitted for dresses etc. But I haven’t ever had a BAD experience.Two of those times I was MOH.

    I actually just forgot about my cousin’s wedding when I was in my teens. EIGHT times then.

    Yah, I’m over it.

    I was in one back in July, and it was so horrible that I don’t even want to discuss it.

    Not once. I’ll probably only be in two weddings my entire life IF my remaining bridesmaids ever get married.

    I was one a couple of years ago, and it was overall a positive experience 🙂

    1 time MOH (this year), 1 time BM (in 2010) and 1 time BM for my sis when I was 14.

    I’m over it. If I never get asked to be in a wedding again, I’ll be perfectly happy. I do have a BFF from the 5th grade that is still single, if she was going to do a bridal party (I could see her not doing one or just doing a MOH), then I would definitely say yes and be delighted and honored to be in her party, but if she didn’t ask me or didn’t do one, I wouldn’t be hurt or care really – it’s expensive to be in one and I’ve done it enough times now to be fine with never doing it again lol

    I was maid of honor in my mom and stepdad’s wedding when I was 10, but I obviously didn’t do any planning or help throw a shower or bachelorette party or anything like that. I have yet to be a bridesmaid as an adult!

    So sad that some people have negative experiences. I have twice and it was low stress, not much work or cost, and great fun. One time was for my mother and it cost nothing. The other time was for my best friend and my only costs were dress + shoes, and a cheap but fun hens’ night (bachelorette party).

    I was MOH at my MOH’s wedding, but it was out of state and I only got there the night before so I didn’t do much :-/

    I have been a flower girl 4 times, but a bridesmaid once – so far. The first time was last summer, but my BM did ask me to be in her wedding next fall, so that will be my second time =)
