It's tough to be a bridesmaid

Normally weddings are "don't ask, don't tell" types of events when it comes to the single guests. Weddings can be difficult when you're single. However, typically it's important to be discreet about it when hooking up with a groomsmen while the rest of the guests eat cake.

During a recent wedding, a couple of bridesmaids disappeared with a couple of groomsmen. Oh man. It was going to be one of those nights. They had been celebrating quite vigorously for several hours and had perhaps celebrated a little too much by this point. What's a wedding coordinator to do? Usually I just help them fix their hair and make sure their shoes are on the right feet.

However, these ladies came down the stairs wearing the wrong dresses. In their drunken stupor, they had somehow mixed them up. Oh man. I did my best to try to maintain their dignity by pulling them into the office to change. I went to get them something to eat and when I came back, one of them was passed out on the floor wearing nothing but a Texas state flag.

It's tough to be a bridesmaid.

Here's me with my lovely bridesmaids. They are so amazing. I couldn't have asked for more wonderful ladies to be by my side on my big day. Luckily, no dress switching took place during my wedding. :)
