To Be a Bridesmaid
Ok, first of all, I LOVE being a bridesmaid for both selfish and non-selfish reasons. The selfish reason is I sometimes like being a “one-upper” (you know, someone who feels like they need to one-up you. For example, when someone says, “Oh, I caught a 5 lb fish” someone like me will have to add, “Ya, and I caught an 8 lb fish, so there.”) and when I’m at weddings I play this terrible game in my head where I rate how well I know the bride, because for whatever reason, it makes me feel cooler. Being a bridesmaid like automatically just shoots me into the winning category (in my brain), so I feel GOLD STAR level cool.
The non-selfish reason, is when someone asks me to be in their wedding party, it’s of course someone that means a heck of a lot to me. I am definitely so excited that they are getting married to someone awesome, and I love that I am being included in that super special time. I also turn into the, “So, do you need me to design you some invites?!” monster when I am added into a wedding party, because I like to help….
Anyways, all of this is alluding to the fact that I will be in one of my friends wedding party in December. She is wonderful and awesome and so is that cool dude she is marrying. However, back to being selfish, this also gives me a goal. To look awesome at her wedding.
Chara is awesome (that’s the bride) and is letting us choose our own dresses as long as they are grey (and not shiny, just grey).
And now every time we hang out, I’m like, “Oh man! Hitting that gym so I can look hot at your wedding!”
So, there isn’t much more to that story except that I get to pick a grey dress, and I have a goal (which I think both of those things make it a fitting topic to post about).
Aren’t those dresses cute!? How will I ever choose? Good thing I have until December.
