- Wedding: May 2014
When I went dress shopping with a couple of my bridesmaids before the holidays they had asked if we could plan to get everyone together so that they could get to know each other since very few of my maids know each other or my fi’s guys. So Saturday night we invited the crew over to our place for dinner. Since half of my fi’s guys are out of state he only had two of his men here but 4 of my 5 were here for dinner. It was SO MUCH FUN! I made a bunch of appetizers and then we ordered a huge pizza and some chicken. Everyone relaxed, talked, had a few drinks, and generally enjoyed themselves. My fi’s friends are pretty quiet and reserved, whereas my girls are all kinds of silly and animated…the guys didn’t melt into the floor, in fact they were almost the last to leave! We talked about shoes, wedding clothes, the food, bachelor/bachelorette parties, rehearsals, etc. It was so neat to get my friends together and it hit me that my maids are girls I’ve been friends with for anywhere from 30+ years to 2 years! I’m so blessed. We had a nasty bit of snow on Saturday so traveling wasn’t any fun and my long time friend drove 3.5 hours to get here!
I just had to share my happiness.
