"And so here you are. My best friend. Bright and beautiful. Your heart has come alive. You're beaming. Joyful. A little nervous. Today's your wedding day. How did we make it here? Who would have known that 18 years of friendship would include this momentous day. This moment in which you'd declare your love to him. Him who's found you.
How far we've come. From John - remember him from primary school? Haha! We had such a huge crush on him! We giggled about him at break time. And then somehow we graduated to the Joels. How similar they were. How did we do it? The distance, the hopes and dreams we had for lives with them.
Wow. And now, now life has changed. Now we're here. With J. (Funny how all their names start with J!? Haha)
You and I have come from so far babe. I'm so honoured to be your bestmaid on this day. This day when all the tears we cried and hot goss we exchanged all make sense. You've found your one. And I couldn't be happier for you! Anyway boo, let me pen off. I'm welling up with tears as I write this but I need to put the finishing touches on your makeup before you walk down the aisle! Eeek!"
~ Journal entry of a best maid of honour on the morning of her best friend's wedding.
What are best friends for, right? They've seen us through all the heartbreaks we've endured before we tie the knot. Heaven knows the number of times I've called my bestie and spoken to her on the phone for 4 hours because Mr. Man had turned my world upside down.
Thank heavens for girlfriends. Thank heavens.
They've held the fort in my life, more times than I can remember.
This Lovisa wedding-inspired look is especially for best friends who become best maids. The halo of flowers, white choker and double gold ring set are simple, contemporary and glamorous. Airy, angelic and bohemian, this look is perfect for a summer-y garden wedding!
"Friends help each other. A true girlfriend is someone who lets you have total freedom to be yourself - and especially to feel. Or, not feel. Whatever you happen to be feeling at the moment is fine with them. That's what real friendship amounts to - letting her simply be. "
"I cannot even imagine where I would be today were it not for that handful of friends who have given me a heart full of joy. Let's face it, friends make life a lot more fun!"
Are you going to be a best maid or maid of honour any time soon? If so, this look right here could just be the one for you! ;-)
As always, I'm sending you lots of love and sunshine,
