- Wedding: May 2014
I wasn’t really sure what board to post this on, so hopefully this one is okay!
I have been working on my wedding website the past few days and my main focus today was going to be the wedding party and their bios. I thought it would be easy enough…I was wrong. I chose to have 4 lovely ladies in my bridal party. My two bridemaids are my best friends from college…their bios were a piece of cake. The hard part however, is this:
I wanted to have both of my older sisters in the wedding. I have one sister as my maid of honor (we will call her sister A) and the other as my matron as honor (we will call her sister B).
Sister A and I are very close with eachother. She has been a role model to me since the time I was born, and in some cases like a second mother. We talk regularly and I love her to death. She is honestly one of my closest friends. Her bio came easy. This is what I wrote about her:
“Sister A: One of my big sisters! I have always looked up to her since I was little and in many times, tried to be like her. 🙂 Sister A has been one of the biggest supporters of mine and FI’s relationship, even from the beginning. Although we don’t talk everyday, she always knows exactly what to say to help me out. I know I can go to her with any problem and she will tell me the honest truth, even if it hurts. I truly consider her one of my best friends. The fact that she is willing to wear a dress for my wedding makes me love her even more! I can’t wait to have her as my Maid of Honor!” (side note: she NEVER wears dresses. She has three boys and is very much a soccer mom)
When it came time to write Sister B’s bio it was a whole different story. Sister B and I aren’t very close. We live completely different lifestyles and infact one of the only things that keeps us intouch with eachother are her kids. Sister B has always cared more about herself than anyone else. I wanted my wedding to be a chance for us to come closer together. I also didn’t want her to feel left out if I included sister A and not her. When I first asked her to be my Matron of Honor she was thrilled. However we haven’t really talked much since. I would like some help for what to put on her bio. I don’t want it to become a fight over “which sister I love more”, because believe me, she will start that.
If you have been in a similar situation, please help me out!
Here is an example of what I wrote for one of my bridesmaids, so you have an example:
“I met BESTIE in an elementary education class. I was late for class the first day and the only chair available was at her table. (she seemed friendly enough) We found out that day that we lived in the same apartment complex and haven’t stopped talking since. Somewhere between the carpooling to class, studying for ridiculously stupid exams, BESTIE’s strict “no skipping class” policy, and my caffeine addiction, we became friends. We spent the following semesters taking as many classes together as possible! FI, BESTIE, and I decided to find a 2 bedroom apartment to move into the summer before our final semester (full time student teaching). I’m so glad we did because I got to live with one of the most kind, fun and lovely people I have ever met! She is a person that would do anything for a friend, and I am so lucky to know her and have her as a bridesmaid!”
Thank you for your help 🙂
