For years, my sister has been invited to grand weddings. Her close friends ask her to be the bridesmaids. These events are huge galas. Extravagant. All encompassing. There is drama, of course. Then there is the parading. The beauty and the memory.
And then there are my friends. Of course, there’s the usual traditional wedding. But my close friends? By coincidence, many want to have a private wedding. The kind that is at city hall. A small dinner with only immediate family. The only change is the facebook status. A wedding? A financial nonsense.
How do our friends describe who we are as people?
