- Wedding: June 2011
And our wedding is just about 8 months away. So she’ll either be super uncomfortable and not able to stand, or she’ll have just given birth and won’t be able to attend. Either way, she likely won’t be able to join in the party.
I am SO happy for her! I love her! And I know they’ve been thinking of having another child. Still, I nearly selected her as Maid/Matron of Honor – it was a very close toss up. I adore her and she has been so loving throughout the wedding planning process. She’s an amazing designer and her gift to us was our wedding invite design – she won this huge award for invite design – it’s an amazing gift. She’s helped me brainstorm more than any other bridesmaid about my engagement photos, the look/feel of the wedding, and how do use decor/food/invites in such a way that they represent Fiance, me, and the story of our relationship. Both of us will be sad she won’t be able to join in the celebration – the dancing, drinking, etc.! But of course I’m not going to be like, “INDUCE LABOR so you can fit into the dress I picked out and you better be able to stand up straight!)
Also I’ve had a bit of bridesmaid drama already (I have two personal attendants and I told them I wanted them as bridesmaids, but didn’t have room… Now I have room, but simply don’t feel as close with either of them and can’t really pick one over the other.) Do I bump a personal attendant up as bridesmaid? Leave the slot open in case pregnant Bridesmaid or Best Man is indeed able to attend?
So silly. I really don’t want to be a bridezilla who thinks that someone being pregnant is going to ruin my special day. Of course not. Overall, YAY LOVE! YAY BABIES! Still, it’s a tiny bit of added stress and sadness in addition to joy! Oh well.
