Im new to this board, stumbled upon it a few days ago. I was so EXCITED to see that they’re other’s like me waiting on the Ring. now I have a place I can ramble on about my wedding plans, without feeling like a crazy person.
So any who, just was wondering if any of you ladies, will be a bridesmaid this year for a friend? I will, actually our ODD (oldest dear daughter) SO and I will be in the wedding party. our friends are getting married June 8th. I was so happy when they asked us to be in the wedding party.
(Im secretly hoping when we walk down the aisle together, he will feel ready to take the next step. either that or when our daughter walks down the aisle as the flower girl, he will have a epiphany. Lol, here’s to hoping)
If you are how are you feeling? Im truly happy for them, but helping her with all this wedding planing is breaking my heart a little. Im just so ready for it to be my turn. on the plus side SO told me we will “probably” be engaged by the end of 2013. (little does he know this girl has a Walking Date) so he better get on it.

As of right now I haven’a been invited to any weddings for 2013, probably because everyone I know got married this year ( I went to SEVEN weddings this year!) The last time I was in a wedding party was 4 years ago at my sisters wedding but I was the unofficial coordinator/do-what-needs-to-be-done-girl at two weddings this year!
im hoping my other sister will get engaged soon (or I will!) and we will have a wedding this coming summer or fall to go to!
I was also hoping that after being to SEVEN weddings my SO would feel ready to take the plunge.. But not yet :S

Yes! My friend met her SO in Nov 2011, and got engaged this past November 2012. For some reason they decided on March 2013 and I’m one of her bridesmaids. I’m excited for her, but at the same time, I’ve been with my SO for 6.5 years, so it’s a little depressing. Plus her sister is her Maid/Matron of Honor and has no idea what her “duties” should be, so a lot of responsibilities are falling on me. I’m happy to help, but at the same time I’ve got the wedding blues. My SO and I have a timeline, and he told me a few months ago we would be engaged by the end of this year. The wait is killing me!

@kakers: WOW 7 WEDDINGS!! I would have died, LOL. we only had one set of friends get married this past July. I’ll keep my fingers crossed for you and your sister.
@MissCountryGirl727: I hear ya girl! me and my SO too have been together for 6.5 yrs. her Maid/Matron of Honor too doesn’t know half of the things I do. so she always has me going places with her and finding out info. which I don’t mind at all, but in the back of my mind I always thinking of my own plans.

@Mz_HyProfyl: I was a bridesmaid this year and it was really fun! I thought I might be a little jealous, but I never felt it because I love my friend so much. She had a beautiful (and expensive!) wedding, but it probably helped that her vision for her wedding was different from mine.

Yep! For my bestie! I can’t wait, she’s been amazing through this whole process!

@Mz_HyProfyl: I am in one of my college best friend’s wedding in September 2013. I am really really happy for her, but I have to agree, sometimes I get twinges of why not me too. ha!

*raises hand* Me! I’m going to be doing my first stint as a bridesmaid for one of best friends when she gets married to her wonderful man in March next year. And I can honestly say I am beyond thrilled and happy for her. She, another bridesmaid (who got engaged a month ago in Thailand!!) and myself have gone through being single gals and meeting our respective SOs together so it really means a lot to me to be part of their wedding.

Shoot, sorry. I didn’t read the whole title. Deleting my comment, just pretend this isn’t here. Haha
