If you couldn't tell from the title, this post shall be about weddings.
And, before you ask, NO I'M NOT GETTING MARRIED.
I'm not even in a relationship, friends, and I'm also 23, so I think I've got some time to do that whole thing...if I ever find a person that's willing to put up with me for the rest of their lives (good luck to whoever that poor sap turns out to be!).
Anyways, it's Alex's confession time:
I've never been to a wedding before.
Yeah, that's right. Never ever.
Now, part of this is due to the fact that my Dad's family lives in Maine, and my Mom's family is in the Philippines. So, even when family members tied the knot, my Mom, brother, and I couldn't really make it from little old Virginia Beach.
The point in all of this is that I have two weddings to go to this summer, for two of my best friends.
I'm the Maid of Honor for the first one.
Remember when I said I've never been to a wedding before?
Yeah, I'll let that sink in.
I'm in the bridal party for the second wedding.
So, for those keeping score at home, that's:
I have NO IDEA how to be a Maid of Honor OR a Bridesmaid (minus what I learned from Bridesmaids, and I don't know if that's the best reference point), and am freaking out. My roommate has a couple of books that I've read...but still...I don't know what I'm doing.
Also, I think it's hilarious that the first two weddings I'll ever go to, I'm also in the bridal party.
Thanks life :P
So, does anyone have any advice? Resources? Words of affirmation?!?
Or wedding stories in general?
Thanks in advance for any helpful hints! I'm off to find old episodes of Say Yes to the Dress...
