Bridesmaid as a Mrs.

This weekend was my friend, C's wedding and I had the honor of being a Bridesmaid in it. This was my first time being a Bridesmaid since I've become a Mrs. myself.

I had an absolute blast and their wedding was simply stunning. I took over 100 pictures, but here a few for your viewing pleasure...

Mr & Mrs!


It was an interesting experience being in a wedding again, but this time not as the bride herself and now having the wisdom from being the bride. I tried not to be a "know it all" and tried to give the bride my unconditional support and love. My other goal was to be as low maintenance as possible, and not complain about anything.

I was also reminded a lot of my own wedding - the feelings I had that day, the vows we made, and how much I love my husband.

I could not be happier for the new Mr and Mrs. S! They are an amazing couple and I'm so happy to have another friend in my very small "wives club."

I loved your comment about trying to not be a know it all, be low-maintenance and just be unconditionally supportive. It was really telling during my wedding which of my bridesmaids were married because they were the BEST. Then when I was in my best friend's wedding earlier this month, I was the only one who was married and the other girls were giant pains in the ass, to tell you the truth. I think it takes being on the other side to know what the bride needs most...but you do have to walk the line and not be a know it all!!!

I will get to be a married bridesmaid for the first time in November! And I think you offer sound advice...offer your expertise when necessary but otherwise lay low and be low maintenance! Yay for more married young lovely ladies!

Sara said...

I'm SO ready to go to a wedding of friends. Everyone says the best wedding you ever go to is the one following yours. And, while we've been to a couple, they were second marraiges and not the same as a young couple promising forever to each other. I can't wait until some of our friends weddings to feel all the things I felt on my wedding day all over again.
