I am new to the forum and saw this thread while browsing.
Thanks so much for the laughs. I have thoroughly enjoyed reading most of them. RM - you are hilarious. We are definately on the same wave length.
But, like a few others have stated. It is the brides day. If she wants to name her table settings, instead of numbering, then let her. Remember you are a bridesMAID - ie u serve her, not the other way around.
And for kitchen teas - take note of her "please dont's". Dont make it a night you will enjoy but not her.
Although, if you chose the right bridesmaids, then they should know you well enough so that together you can pull off an amazing day
