Congratulations on 5 months! WONDERFUL!!!
I’ve made up my mind for the rest of my life if anyone asks me to be a bridesmaid or maid of honor I will politely decline. The last wedding I was in was 12 years ago. I was in shape and at a good weight (what happened to me?). The bride picked out a dark purple satin (I think all bridesmaid dresses are made of non-giving material so you never look better than the bride). Those dresses are at least two sizes smaller than they say (again…so you never look better than the bride) so I ordered mine 2 sizes up and I am so glad I did because it was still snug. And to top it off, every wedding I have been in we paid for our own dresses…and we never wore them again. Poor Jude. Is it too late to back out as bridesmaid? I heard of a wedding where the bride told the girls what color she wanted them to wear and they all picked out their own dresses. Guess there were a couple of long dresses and a couple of short dreses but they were all the same color.
I loved ‘panic poke’. That’s a great description of our actions at closing time. I’ve been there many times!
