- Wedding: May 2011 - Bartram's Garden
This morning, Wedding for Two posted a really funny letter that she’d sent to her bridesmaids as an April Fools prank. It was really Bridezilla-ish and pretty awful.
I thought it was hilarious, so I copied it, changed a few names and details, (included a photo of a HIDEOUS bridesmaid dress) and sent it to my bridesmaids with a P.S. that said APRIL FOOLS!!!
I thought I’d hear back from them in a few minutes, but I didn’t. I started to worry that they didn’t see the P.S. and thought that I was serious. So, after a few hours went by, I sent another email saying “No replies yet? I hope you saw my P.S. and aren’t plotting to kill me behind my back!”
One bridesmaid emailed back and said “I didn’t see the P.S. but THANK GOD. I was really starting to get upset over that email.”
I haven’t heard back from the other two.
I’m kind of hurt that anyone could think that I was serious. My friends must not know me too well if they thought that I’d ask that kind of stuff of them. Plus, I’ve already told them countless times that they could wear whatever they wanted within my broad color palette (including accessories and shoes) and they could do their hair, makeup and nails any way they liked.
So I’m sort of bummed that they thought I might actually be like that. It’s not a big deal. But I’m kind of disappointed.

Okay, I think it’s funny an I just LOVE April Fool’s….BUT I did think that email sounded like a lot of real-life brides I’ve known! I’ve sent many an email with the “PS: just joking!” at the bottom and somehow, people always miss that part! But, to be honest–it sounds like maybe your girls were busy and just haven’t gotten to it yet?

They seriously thought that was real? Maybe they just lost their sense of humor today?
Otherwise – hilarious! Make sure your nails are 4mm long!

Eh, maybe they should finish their emails!
Just send them a follow up. Even if it’s out of character, maybe they thought you went Bridezilla Psycho for a few minutes
To be fair, the email is pretty extreme…=]

My guess is that they read it at work — just sort of skimmed it and it didn’t fully sink in. They’ll probably read it more carefully later and get the joke. You inspired me to send the following to my girls. We’ll see if they know I’m kidding:
Hi. I know I said I wouldn’t pick your dresses and you could wear whatever you want in the wedding, but I hope you understand that was before I saw THESE.
Now I really must insist that you all order this perfect dress with gorgeous hat. They’re a bargain at just $450 for the dress and $399 for hat. I’ll send you purchasing information. Please order ASAP so they arrive in time for alterations.
You guys are going to look AMAZING! I can’t wait to see the wedding pictures.
