Friday Five – How To Be A Great Bridesmaid

25/07/2014 | 2

Being A Great Bridesmaid

 

I absolutely loved being a bridesmaid. I didn’t really dream about being a bride when I was a little girl, nor did I dress up in white and parade around the garden with a pillowcase on my head as a make-shift veil, pretending to be a wife-to-be like a lot of my friends! I did however truly long to be a flower girl, and then a bridesmaid once I was no longer young or cute enough to be a flower girl.

 

The idea of being a bridesmaid seemed hugely appealing; getting to wear a glamorous gown (I should use the term ‘glamorous’ lightly, it was the 80’s when I was young enough to be a flower girl!) and being such a special part of what seemed to be the best party ever, looked like something I would really enjoy.

 

Well, I didn’t have to hang around for long. The privileged day of me becoming a bridesmaid, finally came at the ripe old age of…wait for it…29! So yes, there was a lot of expectation on my end when one of best friends popped the question. I of course said yes, with tears in my eyes.
