I’ve been lurking for a while, but never posted. Hi bees!
My best friend has asked me to be her maid of honour!!! I’m very excited and happy for her, and I think she’s found herself a fabulous man who will look after her in just the way she needs. I’m really looking forward to planning the hen night and helping with her outfit etc.
This’ll be the third time I’ve been a bridesmaid (my previous times were when I was a little girl), and I’m well aware of the old adage “Three times a bridesmaid, never the bride”.
And I’m 34 and have been single for the past decade, so I am, very secretly, jealous as hell.
Are there any bees out there who have likewise been the eternal bridesmaid, but eventually found their man? If so, please post your stories – I could use some cheering up!

@Maenad: Hi there! How exciting to be the maid of honor! I have been a bridesmaid 4 times, never a maid of honor. I always wondered if I was going to be “that” girl. I’m now engaged, so I guess there is hope. I’m 29 and never thought it’d take me this long to find someone. But it happened, and I can’t complain. I am actually thankful I am older and at a great point in my life. I wish you happiness and luck in the future that you will receive the same!

@Maenad: I’ve been a bridesmaid 3 times (my sister, my mom, and a sorority sister) and I’m getting married in October! I’m also anticipating being a bridesmaid at least 7 more times (for each of the girls standing up in my wedding). I’m sure you have nothing to worry about 🙂

@Maenad: Not sure if you want to hear this… but to put a spin on it I’ve never been asked to be a bridesmaid! So I am jealous of you! I can’t wait to help my sisters and my best friends plan their weddings!

I was a bridesmaid six times before I got married! I was never worried.
