Bridesmaid: To Be or Not To Be
You have been asked to be a bridesmaid in a friend’s wedding. Before you say, “Yes”, please know you do have things to consider.
Activities: If the bride is considered high maintenance, or ultra demanding, consider the time and energy that may be involved. Most bridesmaids are invited to all the pre-wedding festivities (showers, parties, bachelorette getaways. If you are out of town, this could prove difficult.
If you find you are not able to accept the invitation to be a bridesmaid, explain to the bride your reason and let her know how honored you are she asked and that you will understand if she chooses someone. You look forward to being a guest at her wedding.
