- Wedding: May 2010
Ok so I have 2 different bridesmaid issues that I can’t decide between. I’ve thought about this for over a month, & have no clue what to do:
1. My friend who I’ve known for about 4 years, maybe 5 & she’s like my sister, she calls me her sister & says I’m family to our friends. I also consider her my sister, she’s awesome! Ok anyways, I want her to be in my wedding. But I can’t decide if I want her to be my photographer or my bridesmaid! I’m a photographer & she’s been my co-photographer at a few weddings & her work is awesome. She’d take all the pics for free & I wouldn’t have to worry about the quality at all. She shoots the same style as me (or really close to it) & that’s the photo style I like. She takes a LOT of photos & I’d get to edit them all as she doesn’t have editing, so that will be a lot of work, but totally worth it cause I get to do whatever I want to my pics & know how to :). On the other hand, she’s like my sister & would love to have her as my bridesmaid. I’ve already talked to her & she said she would like to be my bridesmaid, but if it helped me more, she’d be my photographer. She’s completely fine with being either & would not be upset & she’s happy with whatever I decide.
2. So if above friend is my photographer, than I have another place for a bridesmaid because I need 6 or it will look wierd. I would like one of my 2 roommates to be my bridesmaid, but who do I ask? 1 of my roomies I’ve known longer & am closer to. We’ve gone to camp together & have more in depth convos & she cares about me, wants to know how I’m doing, how my day was, etc… but the other roomie is helping with my wedding A LOT since she’s helping me plan things, getting really involved, she’s making my wedding cake free cause she loves to do that, plus she’s helping with arrangements & doing my flowers too! I’m 100% sure she could do my entire wedding with no problem, she is a pro. She’s also my friend & I’m not considering her out of guilt, but because wow she’s been an incredible help!
I know, ultimately, I need to decide. But what would you do?
Oh & I just want to throw this in there, my name is Sarah & 1 of my bridesmaids is Sarah & the last bridesmaid may be Sarah. I’ve always said my name is too common :P. hehe
