In order to start getting ready for our Something Old, Something New event I decided to do some research on wedding traditions and superstitions for some Facebook fodder. There was one superstition that grabbed my attention. Three times a bridesmaid, never a bride, unless you’re a bridesmaid seven times only then will you break the curse and be a bride!
Well, as it turns out I’ve been a bridesmaid seven times! (Soon to be eight, in June) Some girls may find this to be a curse, but I honestly feel so fortunate to have been such a special part of one of the most important days in my closest friends’ lives. Yes, being a bridesmaid is expensive and time consuming – I have the dresses hanging in my closet to prove it! But, alas, I have some great memories for always that has made it all worthwhile.
I guess this “bridesmaid curse” might have some truth to it since I will finally be a bride this September and all of my matron friends will be standing by my side with a new dress to hang in their closet.
Since I can’t invite all who read this blog to my wedding, the next best invitation I can extend is to join us at The Buffalo History Museum’s second annual Something Old, Something New event that will take place March 2 at 3 p.m. There will be a pop-up bridal exhibit, bridesmaid dresses on display, an auction, food, drinks and more!
