Long before I asked her to be Maid/Matron of Honor, she offered to throw me a shower even though we were having a Destination Wedding, just us. Despite all that, she still wanted to do it. But now we are having attendants & a really small wedding. And she has just been supportive & excited no matter what…advice on in laws, parents, wedding stress, etc.

tons of things. my 3 bridesmaids are awesome.


two of them got us a HONEYMOON as a wedding gift, to an undisclosed location in europe.

Maid/Matron of Honor is more excited about our wedding than I am. 🙂 the other day she offered to design and print out the ceremony programmes. she keeps badgering me to order her around because it makes her feel she’s earning her title. lol.

Bridesmaid or Best Man #1 made about 8 batches of home made apple pie jam which we’ll be using as wedding favors. She made the jam while I prepared the jars, even though i was perfectly capable of making the jam myself. it was so nice of her! she even helped me make the seating board and other crafty things

BM#2 is super organised and will be taking care of finances on the day to make sure than nothing goes overlooked. she drives me around EVERYWHERE, and keeps checking up on me to see if I need any help. She’s like my personal wedding planner, and we’ve recently come up with the idea of starting a business organising and creating themed events.


aaaand apparently they’re throwing this super-secret bridal shower for me which they’ve been planning for ages!

My Bridesmaids gave me NO problems at all. They never asked a question, they never gave an opinion, they simply did what I asked which was buy your dress and show up on time. Every last one of them.

That… was priceless.

I’m still in the early stages of planning, but my one Bridesmaid or Best Man is so sweet and always asking if there is anything she can do or help with.  I am currently gaga over this Pinterest image I saw of a rustic-y wooden boat filled with ice and drinks during cocktail hour.  She and her bf sail, so I have her keeping her eyes open for anything we could use for that! <3

I only have 2 girls, my Maid/Matron of Honor and 1 Bridesmaid or Best Man.  My Maid/Matron of Honor did my entire song list for me, which is so awesome I can’t even explain (this is one of the wedding planning “chores” that I wasn’t looking forward to).  They’re long distance (I’m in NC, they’re in CA), but a few months after I asked them, they made arrangements for me to come visit them out in CA.  I originally said no bachelorette party (male strippers are gross IMO), but they decided to take me to a few gastropubs and wine bars as low key girls nights.  In addition, I haven’t had to worry about their dresses/shoes, and they’ve just been the same easy going girls I’ve always been friends with.  I guess the best thing they’ve done for me is just being themselves.

I have 1 MoH and 3 bridesmaids.


I’ve known my MoH since I was 16. I’m 24 now. She was my Sunday school teacher throughout high school and gave me lots of life advice. I really could not imagine getting through my latter years of high school and earlier years of college without her. She always gives an ear to listen and really has a caring heart. And she’s definitely not afraid to hurt your feelings, lol. She threw my bridal shower for me and has been just FANTASTIC throughout the planning process. She lets me know what I’m being unreasonable but reminds me that it’s whatever I want and she’ll go with it because it’s what I want.


My other bridemaids includes  my future sister-in-law, my now sister-in-law (brother’s wife), and my best friend of 4 years. I’ve really had no problem with them whatsoever besides my own crazy thinking. One of them lives 3 hours away so she can’t help with much, sadly. One of them is in college and has a busy college schedule, while the other one just had a baby! Whew!
