Real Life/ Spinsterella Crossover Good News

My little sister's getting married!

And I'm going to be bridesmaid!


(I realise that I shall probably live to regret this excitement. Fuck, what if she makes me wear a puffy-sleeved peach puffball knee-length frock with black librarian shoes ?)


  • Woohoo! How exciting...

    Pray to the sweet lordy lord (if he were to exist) that she doesn't turn all "Bridezilla" on yo' ass (as they apparently say)... This happened to my dear eldest sibbers, and it was a reet 'mare.

    (Oh, perhaps don't refuse *every* - bloody bizarre - sartorial suggestion she makes, eh Spinners...? Whoopsie...)

  • When my little brother got married I stood next to him for a large duration of the reception. Thus when people offered to buy him a drink, they offered to me as well.

    I've just realised this story is useless.

    Ho hum.

  • My sis is extremely laid back, *and* smokes fields of grass every day. I don't reckon she'll go Bridezilla...

    Billy - that is a Very Good Tip. In fact, every wedding i go to for the rest of mu life I'm going to hang around with the groom all night.

  • Blimey, congratulations to your sister.

    When I got married, the hairdressers took it upon themselves to straighten my chief bridesmaid's lovely curly hair, despite vehement protests. So remember to be on your guard for that sort of thing.

  • Congratulations! Heh. Accept with good grace the nasty dress, it's the bridesmaid's job to look terrible in comparison.
    Hmm, I'm not sure my grammar is right. Ah well.

  • What shoes do black librarians wear then?

  • Congratulations to your little sister.

    (I once had to wear a bridesmaid's dress that was a strong contender for that site - not only peach, but also satin, off the shoulder and HOOPED, with an enormous bell skirt like Scarlett O'Hara, just at an age when I preferred wearing black and gazing at the world through a fringe.

    Surely your sister won't make you wear a satin peach hooped number though...)

  • Why don't you take James Bluecat's advice, and wear a pair of cords, instead?

    By Anonymous wolfie, at 10:22 PM  

  • Yes cords and a tricorn hat, lovely.

  • Damn, Murph beat me.

    Do you get to pick the best man? You're going to have to shag him, after all. That's the law.

  • Yay, how exciting! My friend asked me to be her bridesmaid about a year ago but she and her boyfriend have one of those stormy on/off relationships so I doubt it's ever going to happen.

    By Blogger Loganoc, at 2:16 PM  

  • The wedding's not till May next year. And the best man will be one of the groom's brothers, both of whom are attached.

    THe other bridesmaid is my sister's friend who had dreads until about a month ago. I don't think it's going to be frilly.

  • I've been a bridesmaid several times, including to a lesbian couple, and half of a 'best couple' once. I don't generally like weddings, but it's much more fun when you are part of them. Plus, it's nice when it's someone you're happy for... I will wish for the best of possible dresses. I have always gotten to choose my own bridemaid dress -- and once was even able to use one of them twice. Lucky.

  • Lord, I got so distracted by those terrible dresses yesterday that I forgot to pass on congratulations.

    Congratulations to your sister!

    By Blogger Melissa, at 4:19 AM  

  • It can only be a couple of days ago that I was reading some cynical shit about not liking weddings, I would provide you with a link but can't seem to remember who it was that posted.....Enjoy it for what it is a fabulous celebration of commitment- scary huh.

    By Anonymous Fidel, at 3:03 PM  

  • Um, yes. My cynical-about-weddings head appears to have gone out the window.

    In my defence I have a very small family, so this is probably the only family wedding I'm ever going to go to.

  • Congratulations to your sister!

    My poor friend had to wear this bubblegum-pink dress with poofy sleeves, white tights, and pink flats dyed to match the dress. She looked like a bottle of Pepto Bismol. After the wedding, she tried to give the dress to a charity shop, and they wouldn't take it.

  • Hey! Don't knock the Librarian's shoes.

    I wear them *every* working day...

    And *please*, don't tell the Librarian - she'll *kill* me....

    (Or at least fine me...)

    L.U.V. on ya,


    p.s. is this where the money for the new PC is coming from?? Chrsit on a bike - having to *pay* your *own* feckin' sister to be yer *feckin'* bridesmaid.....

  • It sounds like your sister will pick something decent, luckily for you.

    Only time I've been a bridesmaid was at the wedding of my uncle, who I hate: not only did I have to pretend to like him and to be thrilled at the honour of bridesmaiddom, I had to wear a dull gold dress and have orange roses put in my hair - I was ordered not to dye my hair for 6 months prior to the wedding so I would look 'normal' in the photos. The roses were nowehere near as orange as my face, however, after the makeup people spent about half an hour trying to turn the consumptive complexion I'd honed for years a 'healthy glow'. My mum sold the photos to my mates and they took the piss for MONTHS.
