- Wedding: January 2010
So I’m in a sticky situation and would love some advice. Around this time last year I accepted the invitation to be a bridesmaid in a friends wedding this May. We were not very close at the time, but her fiance and my (then boyfriend) fiance are best friends from high school. They were planning their wedding to be local to us (not where she grew up or went to college) meaning she didnt have very many friends locally yet. I accepted the invitation as she is a really sweet girl and I figured as we spent more time together we would get closer and become better friends.
All was going in that direction until I found out I will be living on the west coast for work for the three months leading up to their wedding. I even had to push up the time that I am out of town so that I would be back for their wedding!! So, unfortunately, I won’t be around for her shower, or able to attend her bachelorette party, or help her with any big DIY projects. I’m really looking for any suggestions that I can help her from afar. I was thinking of offering to be somewhat of a DOC — I am a super organized person and already created a timeline & checklist for the day of for my own wedding (that isn’t until next year!!) that could easily be adjusted for her wedding. I also don’t know any of the other bridesmaids or her family very well so it would be something to keep me busy on the wedding day while we’re all getting ready.
What other ideas do you have that I could help her with from afar? I’m not the craftiest of people but like I said I’m very organized and actually enjoy planning things like this. Thanks in advance!!!
