I just wanted to take a moment to say that I love my bridesmaids. They didn’t have to accept when I asked them to be in my wedding but they said yes. They have helped out when I asked. I don’t expect them to do everything nor be my slaves. All I want is for them to support me when I have wedding freakouts and keep me calm on my wedding day.
I let them pick out their dresses and I really wanted them to get dresses they felt they could wear again.
I even lost a bridesmaid early on because I found out she really wasn’t a friend (she was talking really bad about me behind my back). So I asked my cousin if she would fill in and she did. She even threw me a bridal shower back home in Cali.
Yea there may have been moments that I wish they would’ve done something. Like 2 of them waitied til the very last minute to order their dresses. But as long as the dresses are here by the wedding that’s all that matters. Do I hate them for that? Nope! Thier lives don’t revolve around me and my wedding.
The other day one of them sent me a text to tell me she really loves me because she was offered tickets to the Jay Z festival the weekend of my wedding and she’s choosing to still be in my wedding! Lol….
I know sometimes bridesmaids can be frustrating. But remember we asked them to stand up with us on one of the most important days of our lives because there was something about them that let us know they would be there for us.
Do you love your bridesmaids?

I love my bridesmaids! My Maid/Matron of Honor is amazing. She has done so much for me without me even needing to ask her. She is so excited and supportive! I can’t ask for a better one. My Future Sister-In-Law is wonderful. She is offering to make all of our favors (home made apple butter). One of my bridesmaids stepped in only about a month ago and she was great! She was so excited to get her dress and get everything in order. She was the first person to get her shoes! Another Bridesmaid or Best Man is in Florida with two kids but has made it up here for our engagement party and my bridal shower. She’s great! I only have problems with one of them. She’s my best friend, but she is the flakiest person known to man. Her dress came in FIRST before everyone else’s and it’s still sitting in the bridal shop. She is driving me nuts! Overall though, my ladies are great.

Love mine. Two live out of state, Maid/Matron of Honor lives an hour away, and two live in town. They’ve been awesome so far, except one of them is balking on getting her shoes because she’s lazy (lol…it’s FI’s little sister, and I love her to death). My Maid/Matron of Honor has been great about letting me complain to her, my BMs in town have been excited and supportive, and the other two have been supportive from afar. We all have jobs and lives, so I’m trying to make this as easy on them as I can. I don’t need much help anyway, so as long as they get here on time, have their shoes and dresses, etc. then we’re good.
