Bridesmaids can be a good experience or a very bad experience. For me it was good (very good). I knew who I wanted to ask before I even got engaged.

We Went for Afternoon Tea yesterday and had a wonderful time, we had a glass of Champagne when we arrived followed by a full afternoon tea, including sandwiches, scones with jam and clotted cream and a huge selection of mini cakes, I think we are all still recovering today.
