- Wedding: December 1969
I asked my kid sister to be a bridesmaid, because I felt it was expected. I wanted to ask one of my close friends & cousin of my Fiance, though honestly. Well my kid sis just turned 18, and I got a text from my mom this morning saying she’s putting the kabosh on ‘J’ being my bridesmaid because she hasn’t done any school work in almost a month (hello it’s your senior year, you can’t slack off!), and has been lying & sneaking around behind our folks’ backs. Not cool sis, not cool. This comes as a partial blessing in disguise because she hadn’t been terribly excited for me anyways, and complained about how I wanted to do things for MY wedding. We have very different styles. I found myself making exceptions for her to make HER happy & feel involved instead of doing what made me happy. Also, not cool sis. So now, I’ve left a voice mail for my other close friend I’d originally wanted to ask in the first place, asking her to give me a call when she has time cuz we need to talk. Here’s hoping she will take my sis’ place!
