Only L.C. Could Handle 10 Bridesmaids

by Maitri Suhas

When a former Hills star gets hitched, the Internet comes running. And Lauren Conrad, who married William Tell, is an e-maven and knows how to slowly drip those details to the hungry public who want to know all about her wedding. The most recent tidbit: Lauren Conrad blogged about how she chose her bridesmai ds of which there were, in total, 10. My first reaction to reading this was pure and utter horror. OK, maybe that's hyperbolic, but it definitely gives me that pit in the gut feeling that everyone with slight social anxiety is privy to. On her blog, L.C. writes: "When it came time to choose my 'maids, my motto was the more the merrier... Remember, this is your wedding day. If you want 15 bridesmaids, go for it. If you only want two, you can do that too."

Maybe I'm just jelly because I can't even think of 10 close friends I'd ask to be bridesmaids for me, by any stretch of the imagination. Or maybe it's because the whole affair sounds like logistical hell — my friends and I can barely agree on a restaurant to eat at without a little bit of grumpiness. But this isn't a mere mortal we're talking about; this is Lauren effing Conrad, and she's got an empire at her feet, so I doubt any of her bridesmaids gave her any kind of trouble.

She even seems cheery about situations that are usually rife with awkwardness in normal human life: "I also think it’s a good idea to take into consideration people who are going to be in your life for a long time, like your partner’s sister(s) or best friends." Sounds like a big fat obligation to me, not really my idea of fun. And don't be mistaken, I'm not a "girl who hates girls." I love my girlfriends beyond a shadow of a reasonable doubt, but the idea of trying to coordinate 10 people with minimal conflict sounds damn near impossible. But, like I said, this is L.C. If I were in her wedding party, I'd be like #blessed. Can you imagine the swag bag?
