    @EmilyJoy:  LOL thanks 😀 this is my second time, first time i had 3, and they were great. We’re eloping and although I’m not being attended at the ceremony, i do have my very best friend (who was one of the three) coming down to help me get ready, and she’ll be the only non family member at our massive 8 adult reception 😀 She’s in no way offended, she’s looking forward to some girlie time in a place she’s never been to before 🙂

     

     

     

    i hope your day runs smoothly!

    @EmilyJoy:  I had a friend who didn’t have any. I chose to only have 3 (my two sisters and my FI’s sister) and honestly, I don’t have any expectations for them except to show up.

    I think brides put a lot of pressure on the “duties” of being a bridesmaid and then when they fall through, we get sad/hurt/upset. I would honestly just count them as glorified guests. Just my opinion, though. 🙂

    @EmilyJoy:  It’s so nice of you to dote on them like that! In all honesty, I would back off a bit. They seem really unappreciative and aren’t in the right mindset to be happy for you and your day.
