I was asked to be a bridesmaid in a friend’s wedding several years ago. Snoopy Peanuts with friends thanksgiving shirt Initially, I was ecstatic! Although we’d never been super close, I really cared about this girl and was so honored that she’d want me to be a part of her special day. From the get-go, though, my involvement in the whole thing was rocky. I’d just signed up for classes in September, and the wedding was in late August. All of my money was going towards classes and books and supplies. I’d had to move back in with parents because I knew I couldn’t afford to pay much in rent while in school full-time. I communicated all of this to my friend, who, although not enthused, seemed understanding.

Then the bills started rolling in. The first was the bridesmaid dress. Out of Snoopy Peanuts with friends thanksgiving shirt four bridesmaids, I was the only one both local and available to go with her to help decide/model what we’d wear. She’d gone through several options when she happened across a baby-pink floor length single shoulder strap dress. Both she and her cousin, another bridesmaid, who was skyping in from Florida, were elated. My heart sank. The floor-length dresses are the most expensive, and not only do I have wide shoulders that don’t look great in that style, but I also look incredibly pasty and washed out in pinks. However, I kept my smile and my cool, reminding myself that this was HER day and HER choice. The dress came to $130. I’d told her parents I could do up to $100, so they said they’d pay the difference. Even that $100 was tough to let go, especially for a dress I knew I’d never wear again, but again, I was there to be supportive, so I buckled down and paid.
