There is nothing quite as bonding an experience as a group of women trying to describe their bodies in the terms of an existing object. As co-maid of honor in an upcoming (jk it’s seven months away) wedding, these shapes, previously assigned to everyday objects like fruit and household appliances, become the signifier of Who You Are.

There is no greater privilege than being asked to be a maid of honor! Too bad my stupid cousin slash best friend, asked me to be the co-maid of honor which is so not a real thing but whatever it’s fine. Kind of. And have I mentioned that the wedding is really close to my birthday?

We all ordered the bridesmaid dresses from the same place at the same time, which is apparently a thing bridesmaids are supposed to do so that they’re all the exact same color or something? I guess colors are hard for dress companies? Anyway, this meant that I needed to interact with another “black-pantsuit-wearing lady” at another bridal store, this time one in South Carolina named Tammy.
“It’s happening in a what? In a yert? What the hell is a yert?” If you have yet to be invited to a destination wedding in which the process of attending is such an arduous journey that it may be mistaken for some bourgeois NOLS trip, you will. Until then you just have to imagine the guilt-ridden mindfuck that is trying to calculate the pro’s and con’s of attending such a wedding. If in your heart of hearts you try to be a good person, but this situation can be a one-way ticket to Crazytown.

I have been to the other side and I have returned a different man. They say you don’t really understand a man until you’ve walked a mile in his shoes. Now, imagine that those shoes are heels. Groomsmen have it relatively easy. As long as The Best Man gets the groom drunk at the bachelor party and to the alter with all his hair in the right places, he’s served his purpose.

“I’m sorry, what the F did you just say? These are 6’s and 8’s, which are NOT my size but, in fact, sizes of my past that are now too small for me. Did The 21-year old Jackie make this appointment?” First time bridesmaid Jackie, the anti-girly girl, tries on bridesmaid dresses for the first time. This is her (hilarious) story of survival.
