I am so glad that the rules have changed about wedding attendants. You can have five bridesmaids. You can have one. You can have no bridesmaids. You can have male friends stand up for you. Your dog. Your cat. Your guinea pig. And it’s all okay – no matter what the size of your wedding.
I had a maid of honor and no bridesmaids. I cannot relate to the drama that oftentimes surrounds bridesmaids. To get a better understanding of this topic, I read Siri Agrell’s Bad Bridesmaid: Bachelorette Brawls and Taffeta Tantrums–Tales from the Front Lines.
Bad Bridesmaid: Bachelorette Brawls and Taffeta Tantrums–Tales from the Front Lines gives an inside glimpse into the mind of a bridesmaid. How does she feel about all of those obligatory bridesmaid outings? What does she really think when she hears you obsess over napkins, pew bows and cake toppers? How does she feel when she walks down the aisle in a dress that’s too tight, too sweaty and really not her colour?
Sound interesting? Check out my book review of Bad Bridesmaid over here.
