FLASHBACK 2016: BRIDAL PARTY
As I’ve said before, I’m always a sucker for wedding details. Aside from knowing how the proposal happened or what kinds of flowers the bride is envisioning for her bouquet, one of my other favorite questions to ask is WHO is going to be standing up at the altar? Sister? BFF from college? Long time friend from pre-school? Who are your people? Those people are the ones you support you through thick and thin, are there for you every step of the way, and the ones you shake it with on the dance floor. One of my favorite parts of the day is getting to meet everyone during the getting ready portion and getting to make a fool out of myself to get them to laugh during group photos.
My other favorite part (I know it looks like every part is my favorite part… oops)… okay but really… one of my other favorite parts is getting to hear about the bride & groom during speeches. I get to hear stories about how the groom helped his best man during a hard transition period or how the bride is the most caring and helpful friend the MOH could ask for… I get to hear examples of their good character and silly stories of their adventures… I’m not lying when I say I get choked up sometimes! (Tales of receptions will be coming in a later post!)
All in all, I like getting to hear about the real connections and see the interactions of the bride and groom and their best friends! Cheers to friends and fun on wedding days!
