I'm having a moment.
I took a ton of pictures, but of course I can't show you those, so for now let me just say.. She looked beautiful. The dress is so absolutely her and the tiara, because yes, she's a tiara kind of girl, is just beyond amazing and fabulous and glorious. None of us even cried because we were all just so happy and laughing and watching her twirl and just so.. excited! There was no time to tear up! It was just all so much fun and just so HER.
Her mom had me do up all of the buttons on the back of her dress after she had decided that dress she had on was "the one". It was just one of those moments I don't want to forget, so I'm writing it down here. I've never been a bridesmaid or especially a Maid of Honor, so this is all new and exciting. I'm just so damn happy for her.
I'm having another moment.
Here's the thing.. I don't know how to be a Maid of Honor. Part of me feels like it's just going to have to be a "learn as I go" type of thing, but another part of me wants to make sure I do all I can for my best friend. On Monday night I took to Pinterest to figure out how to be a Maid of Honor. Shoot me. Why did I do that? Basically, according to Pinterest, I need to quit my job so I can be with the bride at every moment, but I also need to hit the lottery because I need to be spending thousands of dollars planning multiple elaborate parties for her.
Pinterest just doesn't make things practical sometimes. What I need? Practical advice.
If there's one thing Bloglandia has an abundance of, it's brides.
So I figured I'd put this out there - For those of you who are currently planning your wedding or for those who have already have your special day, what are some things you loved that your Maid of Honor did (or are doing) or what are a few things you wished she had done (or wish she would do)?
I know everyone is different and every wedding and every bride is different, but I think some real, practical advice from some real brides, not Pinterest brides, would be the most amazing thing right now! Thank you in advance!
I love you, friends!
