Hey Hive —
So I need advice. My friend of 20 years recently got engaged — yay! She told me last night she selected her wedding party which includes four of our mutual friends of 20 years (we all grew up together). She didn’t ask me to be in the wedding party but rather be her personal “assistant” (she means attendant but I just have to laugh at the phrasing).
I am disappointed since she was a bridesmaid in my wedding and since all but one of the bridesmaids live out of state (and I plan events for a living), I know much of the wedding party duties will fall on my lap which I will willingly do since I am a total type a person.
Any advice on dealing with the disappointment and the reality that you will essentially be doing most of the bridal party’s tasks without actually being in the wedding party? Would appreciate your thoughts. Trying to be a good friend but it stings.
