Always the bridesmaid?

In truth, in over 59 years, for whatever reason, I havent been to that many weddings in my life. Not quite sure of numbers, but a dozen, or less, quite likely. And those I have been to, always as a guest, and nothing more. Never been a bride, cant even remember getting to be a bride on stage, even! Yes, thats right, never been a bridesmaid either! Until now! Well, not quite now, but in 3 weeks, and 2 days time, yes, I will be. My current concern is more about not messing things up, given there will be very limited opportunities for a rehearsal, given I will only arrive in town about 2 days before the big event! I know, all will be fine, but this is me…!

I’m not saying that at 59 years, and 6 months (to the day), that I will be the oldest first time bridesmaid ever, but I suspect I’d be near the top of that list! Before you ask, yes, I’m definitely looking forward to it, and honored to have been asked, as I’d given up on it ever happening by now. No, I dont expect to ever make the oldest first time bride list, I might add! Maybe, who knows, but breath wont be held lol!

To be honest, currently at least, my biggest concern about it all, is my back! Thankfully the back brace corset does seem to be capable of allowing me to stand still for more than a couple of minutes at present, but how long that really will work for, I have no idea. And no, I dont want to be a bridesmaid in a wheelchair lol! I’m sure I wouldnt be the first, but yes, I’d rather be able to pass on that, all the same, given I can walk, and stand, at the moment at least.

But yes, me, the blushing bridesmaid. Never thought it would happen, but really looking forward to it now. Now, if I can catch the bouquet lol…?

The video, very apt for a wedding. I cant believe I havent used this here before, but seemingly not, so…
