The solo bride?
i thought I would try to write down where I am to see if it is not as bad as I think! So a wonderful guy asked me to marry him, I'm thrilled and getting everything planned. We are having a small, but fabulous wedding and the details are coming together, but...... as we are having a small do, I choose to have one bridesmaid I have known her for many years. i have tried to arrange a date to look at dresses but she has cancelled three times, always at the last minute, I know she is busy so I suggested she let me know when is suitable- no answer. My future MIL is great, but her other son's gf would love a proposal herself and so any wedding discussion is a taboo subject in case she gets upset. The upshot is I feel that I can't share my excitement with anyone and it looks like I am going dress shopping on my own, I was already dreading the day as I am not the shape I want to be, but it feels sad to have this event on my own. I did think about asking someone else to be BM but they would feel like a second choice. I don have a mother or sister in the picture and I am starting to feel like I need to keep everything secret and it should be a happy time. Am I being irrational, I know everyone else has things on their plate but right now I feel like I am on my own?
