However, this doesn’t mean I don’t still think that weddings are great projects to work on creatively. Luckily, my artistic talents are still going to be put to good use. One of my bridesmaids and best friends is now engaged. Pretty. Freaking. Exciting. She’s happy that I’ve gone through the process already and can help her out in areas she’s unfamiliar with; I’m happy my collection of wedding magazines will find a new home (they are like porn for brides-to-be!)
She’s employed me to design her Save the Date magnets, invitations, bridesmaids jewelry, and whatever else we end up coming up with. In the mean time, I’m designing away and we’re having a blast going dress shopping and planning the bachelorette party (the most important part!!) I’m happy to be the helpful bridesmaid, doing my part to lighten the load. Not to mention, it’s a lot less stressful NOT having to be the star of the show!
