Always a Bridesmaid!

Have you ever felt like the perpetual bridesmaid? Granted, I don't have 27 Dresses hanging in my closet, but I've got quite a few bridesmaid gowns in there that will never see the light of day again. Not that I mind being asked by my friends to be part of their wedding party. It's quite a thrill actually, but after awhile you really just want to be a bride. At least, I do.

At Callie's wedding, I want to catch the bouquet. Okay, I know the whole thing about catching the bouquet is just a silly tradition, but did you know Melissa McClone caught a bride's bouquet and was the next to get married?

Why not me?

I already know Natalie and Audra won't want to touch the bouquet. They are so down on men right now. And we couldn't drag Belle out there if our lives depended on it. So that leaves me and well, all the other female wedding guests. Of course, I still need a Mr. Right to propose, but catching the bouquet couldn't make things worse than they already are.

Want to help me out because I need to start packing for my flight to Seattle where I'm attending a bridal show and don't have time to google it right now? Do you have any strategies on how I can increase my odds of catching Callie's bouquet?

I think negotiation is best. I remember a friend asked my aunt to throw the bouquet her way, they had some sort of strategy and it worked!

That sounds like a great plan. Get the bride in on the act :-)

And I've actually only been a (junior) bridesmaid once for my aunt when I was about 10. I would love to be a bridesmaid again!!

Knocking everyone else out of the way might work! LOL ;)

I have no advice because I always get out of the way.

I want to say I caught the bouquet once but since I'm still single, perhaps I'm mis-remembering.... :)

Guests? What other female guests? LOL

Serena, you know we want you to catch the bouquet. You deserve your happily ever after.

And I think (hope) Callie has a good aim.

If you're next then I'm sure fate will direct the bouquet your way. Don't hurt anyone trying to catch it because that's going to draw bad karma your way for sure.

I have one bridesmaid dress in my closet that looks like a tomato. Really. I stood in a church looking like a salad fixing.

Sheesh.

Good luck with the bouquet!

LOL, Sarita!!

You've got to be AGGRESSIVE, Serena. Watch the main character at the end of "Clueless." She's ruthless ;-)

I've never caught a bouquet but I am married so I guess there is no need to.

Just leave it to fate. If it is ment to be that you catch the bouquet then you will.
