Episode 6: Why This Woman Is a Professional Bridesmaid

Don’t want to be the bride sobbing hours before the wedding? Glantz is the gal to hire.

I’m getting married…at some point. I haven’t set a date or begun to plan the wedding because I’m just so busy. Unless creating a mood board on Pinterest counts.

Boo proposed when I was two months pregnant. And though my pregnancy was awesome, my great health plummeted after having Evan. (Cue dramatic music.) I almost died! So planning a wedding hasn’t been on my top “to-do” list.

One thing I know for sure: I will not have a bridal party. That means no bridesmaids. I want to avoid drama, complications and cost. Bridesmaids can get catty with one another and have too many opinions. One friend may be upset that I don’t bless them with this role. Plus, I’d have to buy my bridesmaids gifts. I’m trying to keep my weddings costs as low as possible! And then there’s my vision: when I walk down the aisle toward Boo, I want it to be about him and I and Evan. No one needs to give me away; I am my own (and grown) woman. This commitment includes my family, sure, but our small family is the be all end all of our union.
