|Wed Shower invitation poking fun at being a bridesmaid|
We are very happily jumping on the “you really need to see this movie” wagon. We work with brides every day and many a movie has been made about the trials of a woman’s path to the alter. It’s just plain refreshing and interesting to see the whole process through the eyes of a bridesmaid. I’ve been reading a lot of reviews that are quick to point out the empowering and albeit hysterical female-centric voice of this movie. The groom literally doesn’t have one line, and the only “love interest” (enter tired old “chick-flick” formula) is a character that has the interest in the main bridesmaid character Annie (Kristin Wiig) and not the other way around. Girl meets boy, boy likes girl, girl leaves boy’s house in a commitment freak-out. Aaaah. Now, that’s nice- add a heavy helping of raunchy hilarity and you’re in for a good time.
And let me tell ya, playing the role of the bridesmaid is a rite of passage that many women have to… um, I mean, are blessed to go through. And to prove it, for old times sake… here are my badges (and dresses) of honor:
|My sister Tina’s wedding, circa 1995. Notice I was not allowed to have a dip in the front of my dress like the rest of the bridesmaids. There was nothing to “dip” to anyway. I still gag when I smell a Star-gazing lily.|
|My oldest friend’s wedding. This is us doing a dance we’ve done together since we were probably 8. I loved the candy-red apple dress. Also my first time wearing one of those voodoo clear strap bra’s.|
