Not for me, don’t worry. I haven’t TOTALLY lost it. I’m going with my friend that’s getting married on the 5th of December, her friend that got married this last Saturday, and her friend that is getting married in February. Notice a theme here? Two engageds and a married.
That’s going to be a rough day, and I’m not really sure how I’m not going to come home being absolutely furious at my boyfriend. I realize that we have a timeline, but…it just doesn’t seem fair! It’s not like I can just not go; she’s one of my really good friends!

Well, look at it this way – you’ll be able to scout the dresses and get a leg up on shopping for yourself! 🙂

3 of my friend got engaged this year all within a 4 month period of time. It was madness. I didnt let it bother me and I was actually really excited for them. Ever since saturday I find myself feeling jealous now of them that they are engaged and Im not really sure how to handle that.
All the advice I can offer is smile and be supportive and keep your eye open for some stunning dresses 😉

Awwww!! I know it’s tough but look on the bright side. You will be able to get a preview of what YOU might like in a wedding dress and since you are going…if you really like something, you can steer the bride away from it 😉

((HUGS)) KM! I have no idea what to tell you to do, but I can send happy vibes your way. I can’t imagine what I’m going to do if/when it gets to be my turn to do that. But I’m with JamaicaBride – you can use it as an opportunity to shop for yourself, and then you can use the experience as a way to conveniently bring up the subject in a calm, happy way.

Just remember..the more joy and love you give to them and put any jealousy aside, the more love you’ll get in return and support from them when it’s your turn 🙂
have fun and yea..it’s a way to get a feel for what you like..see how certain designers’ gowns fit, etc. Look at it as a “recon” mission! That’ll make it exciting!

I agree with everyone else, you’ll be able to scope out what some dress styles look like “on” a person! I’m sure your friend will really appreciate you being there… and even though it will be tough, it will be your turn soon. Then everyone will get to go with you and give you awesome advice (which I wish I had from my friends, but I’m the first to be engaged)!

Everyone made some good points. I would try to focus on making sure they are happy and treating them how I would like my bridesmaids to treat me.

Just think of it as a way to go look at wedding dresses without getting in trouble . At least you’ll get to see all the dresses in person and get a feel for what you like in person! Just try to have fun and enjoy it and know that soon it’ll be your turn!!

Awww thanks so much for the words of encouragement, girls! I’m totally and completely STOKED for her- I seriously could not be any more excited and I’m so honored she asked me to go with her. I know my time will come eventually…some day… ha! And the fun part is yes, I can look for dresses and get an idea of what I like, but there’s also a Jared’s right next door. Might need to go in and check it out!
