Elycia from Love Elycia had an amazing post about how she was going to ask her brides maids to be her brides maids and I just fell in love with her idea! I expressed this to her on her blog and then was so stocked/surprised/stoked when she emailed me asking if I'd like her to draw my brides maids! YES!!!! We are having a small-ish wedding and especially a small wedding party, mostly because it's going to be very untraditional and well that's just what we decided! ;)
So for my Maid of Honor -drum roll- Duh it was gonna be my sister Lauren! I love her SO much! She is my best friend in all the world, even when we want to kill each other! ;) I was lucky enough to see her two weekend in a row (she's now living in Boston doing her externship)! I gave her the illustration Elyica made, and I added the circus tent and a sweet note on the back! She said yes and she teared up (Lauren's a tough cookie and rarely cries)!!! Oh I was sooooo happy!!! Completely made my year! This weekend we went up to NH and picked her up in Boston and she spent the weekend with us! Thank goodness because I was not feeling well at all, and she stay with me while the family went out! We watched Sister Wives, which I found super upsetting for so many reasons 1. the guys is kinda an idiot who wasn't even a Mormon (I shouldn't go off on this tangent sorry! hahaha!)! Anyways Lauren and I had fun together eating junk food and shopping online! I love you Lauren!!!!
Here's the supplies I used to put together the cards! Elyica, you are the best!! Thank you thank you!!
More to come! Still have a Matron on Honor to share!
