  • Wedding: May 2011

My Maid/Matron of Honor lives in Delaware, my other bridesmaid lives in Tennessee, I live in New Mexico…..so yup, in a similar situation.  It would have been great to have them along dress shopping but I took pictures and e-mailed them, they e-mailed me picts of them in bridesmaid’s dresses.  I don’t know that I have the blues over it, just making the best of what is, but if I had the ability to change the situation I would.  🙂  I figure it will just be that much nicer on the day of the wedding to have them around.

I’m in Ohio, I have one in Cali, one in Utah, one in Indy, one up in Columbus and one about 20 mins away. Facebook and email has helped a bunch because I can send them links to what I’m looking at and I get their opinion.

I live in Nashville and everyone of my bridesmaids was in Mass or NY so I totally understand.  I actually went up to Boston for my bridal shower.  It made more sense for me to go to them rather than allll of them to come to me.  The wedding was in Boston too.  My husband and I are both from there originally.  These things happen when you grow up and move on to your own life and move away.  But I’m sure your girls all still love you and want to support you and be there for you in any way they can!  Don’t get too down in the dumps.

Yep. None of my bridesmaids are in the same city, and none of them are in my city. But so far it’s worked out just fine.

  • Wedding: September 2012

I live in Colorado, and the only other person who lives here and will be attending the wedding is FH. One bridesmaid in California, two in Texas, and one in NY. I’m not even going to bother having a bridal shower. With the utter lack of friends we’ve made since we moved to the area, and how hard it would be to invite someone from out-of-state, there’s just no point in wasting the money on it.

I’m pretty much planning everything entirely by myself. I don’t have a problem doing it. But it is a bit of a downer that I couldn’t have my friends to come over and help, or just do a girly night out if I need my mind off it, even if I wanted to.
