always the bridesmaid never the bride

Always a bridesmaid

A few years ago 11 (yes you read that right, ELEVEN) of my friends got married in one year and I was maid of honour at 3 of them; March, April and May.
It was a crazy year. I think I caught the bouquet at two of these celebrations. This old wives tale didn’t help me in finding a man & getting a ring put on it!

Leading up to this time as each of my friends (especially the close ones) started to get engaged, I was dying inside. I wanted nothing more than to have my own partner, get married and start a family.

I remember driving to my sisters engagement party in tears. I was so thrilled for her but absolutely crushed that I was so far from this stage.

I spoke to a wise friend and just said I really want to go into this time with a true sense of joy and not one of bitterness.

Looking back on this time I can honestly say somehow I did have complete joy at each if these celebrations. I think at everyone I secretly hoped I might meet Mr Right! That didn’t happen but I certainly experienced my fair share of great wedding snaps & a handful of new profile pictures!
