Wedding party

My good friend, who recently relocated to France, called me today. She got engaged a couple of weeks ago. It was naturally a topic of conversation. Actually she called to ask me to be part of her wedding party.

Of course I said yes. She’s one of my oldest and dearest friends. She said she was a little nervous in asking me though. I know where she’s coming from.

Of course being asked is an honor, but look at it from the other side for a moment. It’s a lot of work and money. You need to be there for her from the planning, to the doing, and even to take care of things after the reception because the happy couple will be honeymooning. Things that you will be happy to do only for a good friend.

Anyway, the wedding isn’t for another year. I’m going to start saving, a little bit here and there will add up so it won’t be such a big hit all at once.

Frugal Dreamer,
She hasn't decided yet. But they are leaning towards having it at home since all their friends and family is here.
