After the lovely news I told you all about in December about DS2 and his girlfriend and the up and coming wedding we now have a date 20th September so all booked and all systems go,one small niggle lovely girlfriend (and she is lovely)is only wanting two bridesmaids her friend and cousin and my DGD is heartbroken and my DD spitting feathers as DGD has not been asked, I am finding it hard to keep my own counsell on this as it is their choice but can understand that DGD is upset her favourite uncle has not asked her to be bridesmaid,DD has said she would pay costs of any extras for dress etc,where do I go from here ?
Bags, I am the last person to be sexist but in calling it the bride's 'big day'. I was simply going along with the traditional view. The spotlight is usually on the bride although of course it's an equally important day for her groom.
Oh yes, anno. I didn't mean to accuse anyone, and certainly not you. I just think the traditional view that you mention is sexist – for which there are historical reasons that make sense even if one doesn't like them. I'm glad things are changing for women, if slowly in some places.
And the 'traditional view' is not the view I ever took, nor that of either of the people I married. Don't worry, I'm used to being a freak
