The Lifespan of a Fly

I’ve been wanting to write a post on this topic for a long time, but it had to be done right. I’ve been wanting to send a shout-out to the unsung hero of wedding, the bridesmaids. These girls spend months organizing, shopping, decorating and all sorts of extremely feminine things that I normally don’t involve myself in.

A couple girlfriends of mine are getting married this summer (while I celebrate my two-year engagement anniversary with no date in mind.. hint hint Mike) and because I’m not in the wedding party or organizational party, or really any party at all, they sometimes feel like I might be the best person to vent frustrations too. Now, brides always get the sympathy when it comes to stressing about the upcoming BEST DAY OF YOUR LIFE. There are all sorts of shows based around the bride etc. and so many of my normally quiet, kind girlfriends are terrfied that they’re becoming, dun dun DUN, BRIDEZILLAS! And yes, some of them are. However, they have perfectly normal excuses to turn into head-biting, brain sucking, flesh-eating monsters, but the bridesmaids? Man, I never thought they could outdo the brides.

I’m not going to recount all of the innappropriate activites of said Bridesmaidzillas. That would be time consuming and counterproductive, although perhaps pretty funny. But I will say, that if you were not made the Maid of Honour by your bride then it is not your place to alleviate that duty. You don’t suggest that you take over if the Maid of Honour can’t live up to it…. You may as well suggest to the bride that if she can’t take the stress, you’ll put on that white dress for her and no one will know the difference.

Back-off, that’s all I’m saying. Actually though, if you keep going the way you have been then you’ll likely end up with your own television show.
