- Wedding: March 2014
I have a maid of honour and one bridesmaid, both of whom I met on weight loss journeys (one I met at Weight Watchers, one i met on a lapband forum). We’ve all achieved our goals, in our own ways, despite ups and downs. My Maid/Matron of Honor is in Auckland and my bridie moved over here from Perth in August, we got to know each other over skype. Neither of them knew each other until I asked them to be my bridesmaids! But I KNEW they’d be awesome together because they are both so similar, in personality & looks, to the point it’s almost creepy 😀 And to boot, they have similar body shapes (unlike me, they both have awesome legs, I’m jealous), both are brunette, and all three of us are 5’2″!
I introduced them to each other over a private convo on Facebook and the way they’ve connected has been awesome. Fast forward to tonight… I’ve been doing a LOT of research into bridesmaid dresses this week, but I haven’t wanted to say a lot for fear of overwhelming them because we’re planning to shop for them when Maid/Matron of Honor is over from Auckland in October – and we’re still 10 months away. But i just logged on to Facebook and found that that without me even initiating it they’ve been having a fun time listing TONS of potenital gowns and having a discussion about necklines, height, shoes etc etc etc 😛 TOTALLY gave me the warm fuzzies 🙂
Oh, and at the end of it all, Bridesmaid or Best Man suggested this bwahahahahahaha
I have freaking awesome bridesmaids. I’m really glad there’s just going to be the three of us, we are going to have SO MUCH FUN 😀
