I have been so excited to attend a bridal show since I got engaged. My friend recently announced that she was engaged, the key word being 'announced' as she is yet to have a ring put on her finger. I on the other hand, have a gorgeous sparkling one carat ring from Tiffany on my finger. We both decided to go to the bridal show in Langley at the Princess & Pea B&B. Upon arrival at the show we were greeted at the entrance and the hostesses had to ask who the bride was. Fair enough they wouldn't know that my friend was a bride as she was lacking the first sign of a bride to be, a ring on her finger. It was a great bridal show. Ate lots of yummy cupcakes and cake samples. I was very happy to find a florist! Despite being a great bridal show, as we walked around I was soon feeling like a Miss. Nobody. These vendors when presented with my friend and I, their first assumption was that she was the bride and would start chatting her up. Given that technically she is getting married, I'm the one flashing a gorgeous diamond ring! I flashed it alright, I stood at the booths with my arms crossed in a way that my ring was flashing at each vendor that passed me over as a non-bride but with a smile on my face in hopes they would acknowledge me. Why was I being passed over as a non-bride? I'm not a larger girl, I'm attractive, I was dressed in office attire (so not badly dressed) and I will stress again, I had a huge sparkling ring on my finger!
