I have been a bridesmaid 14 times.
Once Stephen and I started seriously talking about marriage and I knew it was 99% a done deal, I started thinking about who all I would have. I have family that I am incredibly close to and I have friends that are just as close as family. I knew from the VERY beginning that unless we eloped, it was going to be a BIG wedding party.
I wanted to ask my girls in a "special" way, and it was the during the weeks leading up to Christmas so I just thought it would be the perfect time. Naturally, I ran to Pinterest for ideas but nothing was just screaming at me. Hard to believe, eh? One day during lunch I ran over to
First up was Angela.....AND Anna. (I included flower girls too.) This picture cracks me up. She is definitely her daughter. Look at those faces.
It was also only fitting that I ask my friends Amy & Molly together. Back in the day the three of us were "The W.A.Y. Chicks" as our youth group referred to us. We've been great friends for a long, long time and there's always alot of laughter going on.
We met Kayla half-way in McMinnville one afternoon. I just love her.
So, there ya have it. That's how the 10 best friends a girl could have became the 10 best bridesmaids a bride could have.
Yes, there's 10.
Plus 2 flower girls.
Yes, I realize that's a ton of people.
But I wouldn't have it ANY other way.
