I was recently asked by one of my close friends to be a bridesmaid in her wedding. I am so honored, and thrilled to be a part of her big day! Her wedding was to take place on a Friday in May.
Our other dear friend, who was a big part of Ian and I meeting, is getting married on the Saturday night (the night after my friend's wedding). I thought this was perfect, and that we'd be able to attend both.
But my friend has moved her wedding to Saturday evening. As in, now both weddings are the same day. And my friend's is in NY, while our other close friend's is in Baltimore. Now we're faced with a huge dilemma. Do we split up, Ian go to the wedding here in Baltimore, and I go to my friend's wedding in NY? That way, at least we both are a part of each of their wedding days. I am bummed out.
I'm sad at the thought of missing either of their weddings. And hearing stories from Ian, if we were to split up for the weekend, would make me even more bummed out. Especially because many of our close friends will be at the Baltimore wedding.
I think my loyalty is to my friend because I am a bridesmaid for her. But I hate having to make this decision! Have you been in this situation before? What'd you decide?
