Bridesmaids may look nice, gently smiling and only well wishes to the Bride, there is only the mean Bridezilla, right? Wrong, these lovely teared eye girls are fiercly competitive of being in front, be up close and best friend with the bride, it's a deadly game for some..I have discovered something..wedding dresses nz

I'm so far from the social scene you can come, only mud and farmlands outside the old Ambulance that me and my boyfriend drives around in. Far gone are the days of Goa and the hectic city life of Stockholm, wearing high heels and Tiger of Sweden suits while half running towards the store (my old job for anyone thats new on this blog). It was days of Take Aways and Latte, lip gloss and parties, but not anymore. With a slightly sore thought I'm sipping tea dressed in OP Shop knitwear and grandma socks due to the long lasting cold that shocked us all with it's storms and hale already! With nothing better to do than to open my inbox I noticed some invitations. They pop up from now and then as an old reminder of the life I once had. The life where "who you are" and "who you knew" was far more important than fixing the old Bedford Ambulances 'skweeky' dash board or filling up containers of water at the gas station while 'rich' girls look are still doing touch ups on their make up in the reerview mirror. Nowadays I'm actually enjoying the muddy fields, the wet grass and the rough seas, well anyways, back to my story..

So I sat there (in front of the computer ) today,when opening my hotmail and noticed one of these invitations, it was to one of my best friends bachelorette parties. I have received the first one and had to friendly decline it, but the haven't taken me from their email list and I have followed the conversation and the development of the event and planning, so far it's 3 girls with some attitude and stone will that is organising the whole thing, but no harm done, it's good to have some skin on your nose when dealing with dates and times, and not to forget, a lot of girls. So, for anyone who have read my older posts my wery close friend is getting married to her Mr BIG and I'm on the other side of the world, following this event from Facebook and on my inbox. But this time the email wasn't from her, it was from her 3 best friends (the organisors) that are trying to arrange this bachelorette/ 'kidnapping' scenario. The only thing that got to me was that the email read like this:
'We will then surprise her and take her to another destination, we meet up and do an exercise, maybe in the theme of love?'..the message followed like that and the whole thing sounded pretty exciting and well planned except... I said to my boyfriend: It's funny that the girls that receive this email (including me) doesn't know whats going to happen during the whole day, I mean, the big surprise should only be on the 'bride to be', right? He agreed, I read the whole thing again..bla bla bla..and then..by the way, deposit the sum to one of our bank accounts, I looked at the money that the guest had to pay, it was huge and for the amount of surprises that only seemed to be of jogging around and then eat buffe, where would the rest of that money go?.
A few minutes after I had read the email I tought, well it's perhaps just me that is wondering about these things, nope..the bomb came, heaps of responses on this pretty cherpy and harmless first mail, the other friends of my friend the bride where like angry bees, perhaps by the fact that they couldn't contol or decide what happend with their bride as well, they where all disappointed of not knowing what the day consisted of (as I suspected) and then the price that they had to pay, some even wanted to arrive later and then pay half price?..It was a small step made of the first girl and in the first email reply that I read, she was wagly and carefully explaining that she didn't like the planning while still being aware that she didn't want to step on anyones toes (she is after all obliged to meet these girls up front). The bachelorette party planning then escalatade from that, by the time the fifth email dropped down I was so happy that I actually couldn't make it and that I was in this muddy jungle of mine, what will happen when all these girls meet? As long as the bride doesn't get stuck in anything, she has bigger things to think about, or perhaps one..her BIG day..an not a BIG mess..
Love as always..Alice
