That's a lot of sisters and cousins

There's a missing bride-to-be from Duluth, GA. Her family doesn't think she just got wedding cold feet. You can read about her here.

I thought it was interesting that she plans on having FOURTEEN bridesmaids and groomsmen.

*In Southern accent from Steel Magnolias*
"Daddy always said, 'an ounce of pretension is worth a pound of manure.'"

Is it common to have that many down South? I'm somewhat of a wedding expert...Well, okay maybe not, but I have been to about a jillion gillion weddings and I've always thought there should be 3-5 attendants, maybe 6 (each). My 30-something cousin got married a few years ago, already had a talking kid from another guy, and still wore a huge white dress, had a big reception (I didn't go, I hate her) and EIGHT bridesmaids....She was 30-something years old with a kid! TACKY, TACKY, TACKY! But that's just my opinion...

Anyway, I hope they find that girl. It's sad. Maybe her 14 bridesmaids can form a search party. Okay, that was mean but I couldn't resist...let's face it, we all know I'm already going to hell anyway. But seriously, I do hope she got cold feet and took off for a while and she comes home to find out that her family had listed her as missing...

Missing: Jennifer Wilbanks


  • I read about the bride-to-be and, ok, it is horrid to imagine what her family is going thru. I must say, tho, that I completely agree w/your stance on wedding parties. After attending several weddings of friends who were nearly in therapy as a result of the *planning*, I was so glad I was, once again, a nonconformist in that realm. H & I had the teensiest nuptiuals. We were broke and couldn't afford a big thing even if we had wanted it! The cool thing is that the day after the wedding, you are just as married as the next couple even if you didn't spend a zillion dollars and have a zillion guests and a zillion attendants. Let's face it, a hangover is a hangover no matter how big the crowd. LOL

  • Yes, let's hope that she's okay and that when she returns she comes to her senses about the 14 attendants.
    That's just 14 thank you gifts you have to buy.
    I say if you can't be selective enough then you should only have one.

  • 14 is insane! I intend to have few to outshine me on my day. (knock on wood I someday have *my* day)

    The worst- my cousin had 16- 8 bridesmaids & 8 groomsmen. Crazy. Who has that many actual *close* friends anyway? I think some folks are just fooling themselves.

  • I wonder if she paid for all of the dresses... that is a lot of money.

    I had a friend who had 8 each, picutures took FOREVER!

    Yes, hopefully she will be found soon and safe!

  • Blogger screwed up, but I'm so glad it did because I didn't read Roberts comment before posting. I cannot believe she did that! All this time I was sort of thinking the fiance had something to do with it. So sorry fiance.

    Ditto Tara. I was also in the 8 bm and 8 gm wedding. Pics were a bitch.

  • I can't believe she faked being missing. will get her in the end.

  • I have six and five in mine. And it's too many. Jersey Weddings are always big - at least 5 attendants on each side.

    Even if I was freaking out I wouldn't bail on the wedding. I love my dress too much (just kidding).
