- Wedding: September 2012
I see so many posts about bridesmaids not living up to the brides vision or not being there for the bride that I wanted to share a post about how my sis/MOH is so great!
When I asked her I never thought she would say yes, she has always been a tom-boy and the idea of her wearing a dress and doing girly things kind of makes me laugh. In any event, she was super excited about me asking.
She hates shopping so I thought it would be a nightmare when I asked if she would come dress shopping with our mom and me one day. She never even complained once. I had tried on about a dozen dresses before finding the one I loved and bought. Then we went down to the bridesmaid dresses and she still didn’t say anything. She informed me that she would “wear whatever you want me to wear as it;s your wedding”. I love this girl. In the end I let her decide what dress she liked and felt good in (as I am only having a Maid/Matron of Honor it didn’t matter if anyone else liked it).
She has been great…. calling to ask what I would like for a shower and stuff…. she has never complained about anything, mind you I have not asked for a lot and don’t really try to talk bridal stuff with her so I don’t over load her with stuff she probably doesn’t care about. She on the other hand keeps asking me about stuff thats going on with the wedding.
I feel blessed to have such a caring sister/MOH. I know the closer the date gets the more stressed I will probably become, but for now her low key attitude has been just right for me and hasn’t put one stressful gray haif in my head hehehe.
