- Wedding: May 2014
I came here to brag just a little bit of my two best friends. I just love them and felt so lucky to have them today.
It might sound silly and it is just a little thing, but it meant the world to me.
I sort of have to do wedding stuff by myself right now. Well me and FI, but you know… you need a girl to do girly wedding stuff with. Anyways, my best friend just got married and moved out of town, my other great friend is working like crazy so she is not avaliable most of the time, she has been very supportive when she can, though.
Today I was feeling kinda lonely, because I went fabric shopping for my dress (I am having it costume made) and we were FI, the dress maker and myself. I asked advice from the dressmaking lady for my bridesmaids’ dress’ fabric, and she told me what to buy.
I wanted the dresses to be something like this:
Same bottom part, but different necklines.
I’ve been running behind bridesmaids asking them to pick a neckline and everything seemed fine, until I made a group chat today to show them the fabric they had to buy for the dress.
Suddenly they weren’t happy with the necklines they had picked (like 4 months ago), and started saying “well maybe we can go all with the same neckline”
I was sort of sad because I was working really hard for months so everyone had a nice neckline, flattering and something they liked. But I didn’t want to be a bridezilla and said: “OK, just make sure everyone is happy with the neckline you pick :)”
This was before best friend and great friend saw the group chat. They were both out of town (great friend visiting best friend). They opened a group chat just the three of us and told me: “WHATS HAPPENING??? BUT WHAT DO YOU WANT? YOU ARE THE BRIDE, SAY SOMETHING!”
I said I didn’t want to look like a bridezilla, and didn’t want the bridesmaids to become angry at me, that I could live with everyone having the same neckline, no big deal!
But they stood up for me. I didn’t have to say a word!! They replied to the other bridesmaids on the chat group that we should stay with the different necklines, as we had been planning for months. Best friend even gave up the neckline (V neck) she had pick looong before the bridesmaid that wanted it (because, she didn’t recall she had to wear a bra when she picked the halter lol), so everyone could be happy.
I know it seems SO SILLY. But I felt the love today hehe.
Sorry for the long story lol, I just wanted to share.
Any sweet best friend wedding moments you want to share :D?
