So for those of you who don't know, my wonderful friends Emily and Matthew recently got engaged - congratulations, my lovelies!!! Anyway, Em's asked me to be a bridesmaid. So you can no doubt expect many posts relating to wedding related dress/flower/venue/band hunting over the next nine months or so.
Anyway, at their engagement party on Saturday, Matthew came out with a pearl of wisdom that I feel needs to be shared. He told me that while he hasn't yet asked any of his friends to act as a groomsman, he's developed a theory for appointing said groomsmen. And it is as follows:
- You need one groomsman who's eloquent, and who makes a speech at the reception.
- You need one groomsman who's trustworthy and won't lose the rings.
- And finally, you need one groomsman who's kind of an arsehole, but who can organise one hell of a bachelor party.
Seems fair enough to me! I wonder if the same applies to the appointing of bridesmaids............
