I have been a bridesmaid, but I was too young to actually know what I had to do. And that was my sister’s wedding. Other than that, I have never been a Bridesmaid or Best Man. After college, I moved far away from my friends and even though we still keep in touch they didn’t ask me to be a Bridesmaid or Best Man because of distance.
Anyone else that have never been a BM?

I was a candle bearer in my cousins wedding when i was 11ish. Never a part of the planning or parties though.
So no, I have never been a bridesmaid. All my friends are still single.

I haven’t! None of my BMs have ever been one either (although two of them will be BMs this summer, before my wedding). In fact, I’ve only been to two weddings my whole life, and both were very small, casual events. It’s made it hard for me to plan such a big wedding when I’ve never actually experienced one! I’ll be going to a wedding in about a month, but it will be a little late to use it for inspiration!

I’ve only been a bridesmaid once when I was 15 years old… 30 years ago.

I’ve never done anything for someone else’s wedding!

I’ve never been a bridesmaid! My 2 friends who have gotten/are getting married either had too many sisters/sisters in law, or chose not to have a wedding party. The rest of my friends have yet to get married, so I’m hoping i’ll get to be a Bridesmaid or Best Man at least once!

The first wedding I was ever in was my own, lol. I always wanted to a flower girl when I was little, but nobody in our family got married when I would have been young enough for the job, so there went that dream.
And I’m the first of my close friends to get married, so no bridesmaid opportunities either. I have a guarantee of being in my best friend’s wedding party, but she’s not engaged yet. So I guess I’ll still be only a bride, never a bridesmaid for a while longer!

I wasn’t, until last year! Many of my friends were already married, but I just never was one of the BMs. Finally last year, my friend had me as one, and man, I don’t think I ever care to be one again! Of course, if another friend asked me I would happily support her and be in her bridal party…and I’m honored my friend wanted me to be in hers!! But it honestly wasn’t exactly the least stressful experience of my life and was definitely expensive too!

Never in a wedding until my own, I had only been to 2 weddings before, and both were for family members.

I’ve never been a bridesmaid. I was a flower girl for my uncle’s wedding when I was only 7 years old, but have not been in a wedding since. A lot of my close friends are single. A few have married, but I grew apart with them a few years ago, so they chose not to include me in their wedding, understandably. I know that eventually I’ll be my younger sister’s matron of honor when she gets married, and I’ll be a bridesmaid when my best friend gets married…but neither of those will be happening anytime soon. I will be that bride that has never been in any other weddings…most people usually complain that it’s the other way around haha.

I’ve never been a bridesmaid. I will be a bridesmaid for my SILs wedding in 2013 but that is so far away!

Never been a bridesmaid! Was a personal attendant for a good friend last fall. Pretty much did all bridesmaid things except wear the lookalike dress, since BM’s were all her sisters who were younger and less reliable 🙂

I think you’re lucky! I’ve been in two weddings so far (SIL and good friend), and I know I have one more to go where I’ll be Maid/Matron of Honor (sister)… and I’m hoping that’s it! It’s a lot of money, time, and hard work. It’ll be worth it for my sister, but like I said, after that I hope I’m done!

I’ve also never been a bridesmaid. I’ve been a flower girl twice when I was younger, but that is all.

I was a Jr bridesmaid for my uncles wedding a long time ago, when I was way too young to know what being a bridesmaid was about, and I was never involved in any of the activities, just the wedding, so I would say no, not really.
