We were great friends but she was in a relationship for the first 2 years I knew her. She knew I was interested but she loved the guy at the time. Anyway this was almost 4 years ago now she set me up with her best friend just for a night of fun.
So who — and how — do you choose to fill these VIP spots? Is it the longtime friend from school, or the one you see every day? Someone for whom you were a bridesmaid or a favourite cousin who lives in the next town.
Then add the fact that you've probably been a bridesmaid or maid of honor in one of your best friends' or sisters' weddings before, and the whole thing is so confusing, you have no idea where to begin. If you were in her wedding but not a maid of honor, but you're closer to her now than you were when she got married, then that's worth more than your other friend who—whoa, pump the breaks. The attendants who stand up with you shouldn't be the solution to a math problem or people you feel indebted to for having you in their wedding party.
Writes Save the Date reader Anne:. I was wondering if it's socially acceptable not to have a maid of honor or best man at your wedding? My boyfriend and I are starting to plan our wedding, and although we each have several friends we'd like to have in our wedding party, neither of us has one super-close best friend of the same sex.
Everyone told me to expect one thing to go wrong on my wedding day. The flowers won't be right, or someone will be running late. The forecast called for rain, so I steeled myself for all the complications that might deliver.
Luckily, a few phone calls later, the groom had everything on track. Situation averted. The bridal party never knew that there was a temporary disaster. Last week, I theorized that women are "hot to trot" at weddings because of a concotion of romance, bitterness, and desire.
In fact, as a bride you often are juggling a huge number of crucial relationships —not just you and your partner, but you and your family, you and your partner's family, and, of course, you and your friends. In fact, she's probably your maid of honor —but many underestimate how complicated the particular relationship can become. Weddings can wreak havoc on friendshipsespecially if your best friend is in your bridal party.
