The Bridesmaid

Hey friends,I have been very lazy lately and so,I've been having difficulties in getting a lot of things done e.g updating my blog but,I have promised myself I'm gonna change because,being lazy isn't good for my complexion*grin*... I trust y'all have been very awesome cuz,I'm fabulous..


Last two weeks,my elder sister got married and I was very excited when she called to inform me that,I was gonna be her bridesmaid. Truth be told,I have never been one before so,I didn't know it's kinda stressful and I had no idea what to do because,the me I saw behind my sister that day,sucked big time..the saturday of the wedding was an environmental sanitation day so we had plenty of time on our hands to take care of our business before we went to the church. When we were all dressed up and the make-up artiste and the hair stylists have done their jobs,my sis called me and handed the things I'm gonna use on her and also gave me gloves to wear..,I was like,do maid-of-honours wear gloves?she just looked at me and said yes..within me,I was just thinking how uncomfortable I would be cuz,the last time I wore gloves was in secondary school during inter-house sports and on children's day*lol* but,I was still glad that the gloves were open..before we left for
the church,the ladies around knowing I'm a novice asked me to pin her veil and arrange her trail which I just told them I couldn't do and they all just kept laughing at me and calling me,"original bridesmaid"..


When we arrived at the church,it was another drama altogether cuz,I was having difficulties arranging her veil and the trail of her dress and at a time,the best man was telling me what to do*can you imagine?*..I just kept praying all the time for the pastor to wed them and let's move to the reception cuz,I was becoming very uncomfortable... Finally, we left the church and headed to the reception venue and I was kinda relieved cuz,the veil and the trail wasn't there anymore so,it was just me,the handfan and handkerchief. It happened that,where was arranged for us to sit had no fan that was close so,I had to do the fanning all the way..I just kept on fanning and dabbing her face and neck with the handkerchief till my hand began to shake from tiredness.

Just as I was praying for a miracle,the M.C called them out to dance and the spraying and presentation of gifts started..I just shouted halleluyah that,it's all overrrrrr.....I know any of my friends I pick to be my bridesmaid will maybe have a tougher or sweeter tale to tell.*lol*....... Y'all should have a great and fun-filled weekend.

  4. I laughed almost from the beginning to the end of this.....I wish someone had prepped you so you will know that that job is not an easy one AT ALL. The bride and her well being are you one and only priority that day.......But I am sure your sister chose you for a reason. Well done!
