When almost every other post is a story regarding misbehavin’ bridesmaids who are making the bride’s life hell, I have a confession to make….
I have awesome bridesmaids!!
Yes. No drama llamas. No regret. No backstabbing. No jealousy. No nonsense.
Just simple incrediable awesome-sauce bridemsaids!
Consider this my shout-out of thanks and appreciation to all the great and awesome bridesmaids out there!
My Awesome Bridesmaid Story: I have two bridesmaids. I picked my best friend from college as my Maid of Honor. And I picked a good friend from my old job as my other bridesmaid. They have been 100% supportive and excited about my wedding from the very second I got engaged. In fact, I knew that Bridesmaid #2 would be perfect as my bridesmaid when she went dress shopping with me on our lunch break and spent the appointment laying out my trains so they would be “just so”. My Maid of Honor almost started crying when I asked her to be my MOH, it was really sweet. They have endured two bridesmaid dress shopping trips and 1 bridesmaids shoe shopping trip. They have offered support and helpful opinions/options and don’t complain too much about the little things, lol. I am really very excited about having these two great girls be a part of my wedding day, and so happy that I picked them and that everything has worked out so well!

My girls have been brilliant, I have my three friends that I have known since school. I havent been able to pick MOH so they are all joint I guess! They have helped me research, listened to me ramble on endlessly and still manage to look interested and were happy to wear whatever I wanted. (Although asked them to help pick and made sure they liked the colour I couldn’t put someone in a awful dress)
I have heard from other friends they are planning an awesome hen too which I am really exited about. I can’t wait to walk down the aisle with them.

I have the best maid of honor! She lets me talk incessantly about the wedding, she is excitedly planning my bridal shower and has given me great suggestions when trying to figure out wedding planning.

I have two awesome bridesmaids too! Both have been with me through thick & thin (literally, met them both through weight loss journeys!), totally get my emotional state (we’ve all had our own battles with our mental health), so if i start to totally freak out on the big day they’ll (a) pick up the warning signs & (b) know exactly how to sort me out and they started discussing bridesmaid dresses even before I got in on the act and both fell in love with the same dress. They’ve been a supportive ear when my mum’s being frustrating, they’ve celebrated with me, come dress shopping with me (separately, they live in different countries)… and that’s the main thing that’s crazy, they’ve never met, they live three hours flight away and didn’t know each other before I asked them to be my bridesies, but they have got to know each other through Facebook and I know they’re going to get on fabulously when we finally get all three of us together 😀
I love sharing & hearing other GREAT bridesmaid stories 🙂
