    My 1st Experience As A Bridesmaid Was Less Then Joyful

    I was psyched to be a bridesmaid for my cousin's marriage, but it turned out to be a pain in the backside. I was never close to my cousin, so I didn't really expect her to really share anything and that was the case. She picked out shoes (******** heel shoes). I went along and...

    Who Invited Them ? (Part 2)

    (from my journal, June 2013) Back in 2003, I remember taking a look at my cousin's wedding ceremony venue on the day of the wedding. In my head I was remembering what I overheard someone say that my cousin said regarding her choice of venue as I looked at it. "She said...

    The Bridesmaids' Dresses Only Come In Junior Sizes

    Simply put, I am supposed to be in a vow renewal ceremony in June. The ‘bride’ finally decided on the bridesmaids dresses. At first glance, it’s very pretty. My only problem at first was that it was twice the cost of the one she had to purchase for my actual wedding and...
