- Wedding: September 2011
So… I decided to have 8 bridesmaids… yes, you heard right.. but it will be a casual outdoor wedding, and I really want to have all of these ladies by my side because they all have a special role in my life and mean a lot to me. My fiance’s younger sisters are my personal attendants to help pin flowers, light candles, decorage, etc. (age 13 and 15) and I have one of my adult friends helping me out with hair, makeup, etc…
I will be seeing my cousin who is the same age for the first time tomorrow! And I know she will give me a guilt trip on not having her as a bridemaid, or ask me who is in the wedding, or if I have decided yet… We grew up together, but we have grown apart and she and I just are not close any more in my opinion. I don’t agree with many of her viewpoints, yet we are still friendly to each other when we do see each other which is not very often. She and her mom (my aunt) who is also very selfish/dramatic and negative about every little thing… are picking me up for lunch tomorrow and want to see my dress, after running into them at the grocery store I caught off guard and said sure!
SO, when we see each other, and they start to poke and prod about who I am choosing, how do I say it in the nicest and most passive way possible?
FYI – I am not going to have somebody run the guest book or cut the cake. I think that is unnecessary when they can be enjoying themselves at the wedding and reception instead..
