definitely fall under the category,
The only time I was ever a bridesmaid circa 1985. Dress from a Bridal hire place in Glenroy-musk pink taffeta, hair blow dried, cheesy smile plastered on.
My best friend at the time told me she was getting married, and all I could say was "Why?". But 22 years later she's still married! Most of our group back then were too busy for marriage and babies.
I couldn't submit any friends to bridesmaid duties when I got married. If anyone asked me now I'd probably have to be a Matron of Honour.....so I'll pass thanks.
