How To Tell Someone They're Not In Your Bridal Party

Sometimes adulting isn’t easy.

Congratulations, you're engaged!

Congratulations, you're engaged!

Now it's time to pick your wedding party: your best friends (and/or siblings and/or family and/or dogs) to stand by you while you say your vows.

But what do you do when a friend expects to be in your wedding party... but you don't want them there?

But what do you do when a friend expects to be in your wedding party... but you don't want them there?

Maybe you've been friends since elementary school and grown apart (despite many promises through your life that you'd been in each other's weddings). Maybe you were in their wedding, but feel like they don't quite fit in yours. Maybe you and your partner have decided that you only want family in your bridal party, or that you want to keep the number of people on each side even. Maybe it's something else.

14 Ways To Be A Healthyish Eater Right Now

Tried and true but manageable tips to help you become healthyish.

Don't start a diet or eating plan you wouldn’t feel comfortable following for the next five years.

Don't start a diet or eating plan you wouldn’t feel comfortable following for the next five years.

"If a diet requires that you give up certain food groups, prevents you from eating out with your friends, or emphasizes any habit you can't imagine maintaining for more than a short period of time, it's not going to lead to success in the long run. Instead, make small healthy tweaks to your diet a little at a time."

—Amelia Winslow, MS, MPH, nutritionist and founder of Eating Made Easy

Macey Foronda / BuzzFeed / Via buzzfeed.com

Stop thinking of certain foods as "good," and others as "bad."

Stop thinking of certain foods as "good," and others as "bad."

"We live in a culture that embraces a good/bad food dichotomy, which vastly oversimplifies nutrition and health. [I suggest] stripping the moralization away from food. An apple is just an apple; you are not good or virtuous if you select it as a snack. A Twinkie is just a Twinkie; you are not bad, guilty, or weak-willed if you choose it instead. When we strip moralization away from food and eating behavior, nutrition becomes much easier."

—Jonah Levy Soolman, RD, LDN of Soolman Nutrition and Wellness

If something sounds too extreme for you, it probably is.

If something sounds too extreme for you, it probably is.

"Most people will give up any effort if they don't think they can achieve the perfect standards of healthy eating you see today. It is possible to eat much better without eliminating foods you love. There is room for everything as long as there is a realistic structure to it."

Rebecca Scritchfield, RDN, host of the podcast Body Kindness

Fox / Via instagram.com

Think of every meal as an opportunity to be healthier.

Think of every meal as an opportunity to be healthier.

"Stop the guilt. If you eat something 'off plan' just suck it up and move on. There's no sense punishing yourself for food that's long been digested. Always remember that your next meal is a clean slate."
