- Wedding: May 2014
I wanted to do a shout out for my Maid/Matron of Honor and BM’s, in all honesty I get quite down hearted about all the negative posts.
My Maid/Matron of Honor – she has been my best friend for 16 years, we went to school together, lived a few houses away from each other growing up. We live about 2 minutes walk away now. She has been my rock for so long, and I hers. She dropped everything to be by my side when, I finally left my abusive ex, and she dropped everything to be by my side when I lost my baby. She looks after me when I am ill. She’s never to busy for just a chat. She’s stuck up for me; cared for me, helped me look after my son when I was having a rough time. Helped me set up home when I left my ex. Looks after my son if I need her too. I know she would give me her last penny and the shirt off her back if she though I needed them. I too have cared for her, missed work for her and left my home in the middle of the night for her, whether it be just because or she really needed me. I’ve spent a long time helping her get through her depression I have sat for hour’s listen to her just talk. I spent the night by her side when she lost one of her babies, even though the feelings of my own loss were still so raw. We’ve been birthing partners, better than sister and the best of friends.
My adult bridesmaid is my Fiance little sister- and I have a fantastic friendship with her also, nothing is too much to ask of her and I always do my utmost to return the favour. I’ve known her 4 years and I see a beautiful friendship that will last a lifetime.
My two teen bridesmaids are my ex’s daughters. They no longer see their dad but after 5 years of being separated my relationship with them is stronger than ever, their mum calls me their second mum, I am overwhelmed by this, it is such a beautiful thing to say to someone. They text, fb or ring me all the time. I love them to pieces, they are such wonderful girls that I am proud to have in my life.
I hope I return their kindness in everyday life but I also hope that asking them to be part of my wedding will allow me to show them off to the world as the amazing people they are. I do not wish for them to do much in relation to my wedding, they’re all rather excited however. I just see this as the perfect opportunity to say thank you to them.
I know my post has little reasoning to this board but I just felt the need to say it. And you know what it felt really good.
