My bridal posse


At the end of March, I asked three of my favourite women to be my bridesmaids, and luckily they all said yes!

Laura, my cousin, will be my maid of honour. We were born 6.5 months apart, and we’ve lived on opposite sides of the country our whole lives, but I couldn’t imagine getting married without her at my side! When we were little, we’d write letters back and forth, and now that’s progressed to MSN and long-distance phone calls. I called Laura to ask her to be my maid of honour, and she answered while driving on the highway. After I asked her, she said “ARE YOU SERIOUS?” followed by “I’m pulling over!!!!!” Love it!

The fact that Kristen and I survived sharing a 200sq ft dorm room together for 8 months in first year is a testament to the strength of our friendship! We lived together again for another year, and until last year, we hadn’t lived more than 5minutes away from each other for 4 years. Kris is a firecracker – hilarious, honest, and the most loyal person I know. She’s been rooting for Adam and me all along.

Lindsey and I are strikingly different and painfully similar. Adam knows not to expect me home for 2 or 3 hours when I say I’m meeting Linds for a “quick” coffee date, because she and I are chatterboxes together! Guaranteed to make me laugh or recommend me a new favourite book, Linds is adventurous and always up for a party.

For both Kristen and Lindsay, I wrote them a silly rhyming card, and paired it with a RingPop in gift bag. I gave them to the girls while we were out for dinner, and I was screamed at, hugged, and smacked on the arm.

My girls are all silly and serious, smart as hell, and I know they’ll have my back through anything that comes along in the future. I’m so lucky that they’ve agreed to stand up for Adam and I when we say our vows!

    Damn it, Mare, now I have to stop reading this blog at work because you have me crying at my desk! hahaha.
    I love you and am so so honoured that you asked me!!

    P.S. As an aside, Mike (of all people) was super excited when I told him about this the other day. Who knew that would happen?! Not I, that’s for sure, lol.

    Aw, Laura! Naughty girl, though, reading blogs at work! 😛

    I also think it is adorable that Mike is excited. I never would have guessed!

  3. I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting my own blog and was curious what all is required to get setup? I’m assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty
    penny? I’m not very internet smart so I’m not 100% sure. Any suggestions or advice would be greatly appreciated. Thank you
