Planning a wedding can be very demanding on a bride, there are so many details to organize. Anyone who has been in a wedding can empathize with the amount of stress that comes with being the bride, but when is the brides demands simply too much?
We came across an article called “The Bridesmaid’s Bill of Rights” featured in Glamor magazine that we thought you would enjoy.
“Yes it is her day, but if your friend gets uber-demanding, stand tall. These are your prerogatives.
The right to sit out a few of the 7:00 A.M. conference calls about such pressing business as favors. “I was point person for a wedding with 42 women in the ceremony,” says Janeen, 36, from Montgomery, Alabama. “I love my friend, but I resigned, and have no regrets.”
The right to quietly ask whether she’d consider a matching shoe/headband/clutch that won’t jeopardize your credit rating.
The right to whine, Tweet and even anonymously blog about your hideous dress. (But you can’t tell her how you feel, and you have to wear it.) Says Meg Keene, founder of a practicalwedding.com: “Grin, drink some champagne and remember, no one thinks you chose it.”
The right to force her to wear a dollar-store veil, drink something out of a penis straw and yell “Last chance, gentlemen” every hour on the hour at the bachelorette party. It’s called payback.
The right to diet not at all for her big day. “The two other bridesmaids in my best friend’s wedding were size 2s,” says K, 33, of Columbus, Ohio. “I was an 18. Instead of starving myself, I got my dress tailored to accentuate my breasts, hips and butt. It cost more but was worth it!”
The right to bring the crazy like she did when it’s your turn to wed. Then you can tease each other till death do you part.”
