A girl I know is getting married this summer. I am in the wedding party. It's very strange because we have a very up and down friendship. She has no other friends really so I wasn't surprised to be asked but it's just different. Other weddings I've been in have been so exciting, but I've been feeling really apathetic toward this one. Things have just been strange ie: She asked me via text "do you want to be a bridesmaid".. and there was a bit of drama over the dresses and things.
I feel like I really need to change this, and help her get excited. Regardless of our friendship.. it's her wedding and I want it to be special... the other bridesmaids are our other mutual friend, her fiance's sister and her brother's girlfriend. She doesn't know the girlfriend or the sister well at all, and my other friend has made it very clear that this is a hassle to her.
We have our bridesmaid dress fitting in a week and I want to make it special so that she knows I'm excited for her.
I have a bottle of champagne and I'm making macaroons (those are her favourite) but what else can I do? It's mostly just a way of me saying "I'M IN THIS.." I know she feels awkward about the whole thing so I want her to know that she can count on me to be there for her.
Even things that aren't related to that day. How can I be a good bridesmaid and make her feel special?
