............Bridesmaids...............

My bridesmaids list has changed so much since I started making one in my head in Junior High School. I have the same core group of friends since elementary school, but my everyday-talk 3 times a day friends have somewhat changed over the years. Right now, my count is 8. When I spent 4 years at Tiffany & Co. in the Bal Harbour shops as a Bridal Consultant, I had weddings on the brain 24/7. I took that job so seriously, coaxing all my friends to register there, faxing the registries to our other friends and delivering gifts right to the bride. It was so much fun and when I do get engaged at some point, I will be able to register myself lickity split, having researched and thought about just that for years! I own every copy of Martha Stewart Weddings since she started publishing it and it like my little wedding library in my bookshelves.

Recently one of my very best friends got engaged and we are celebrating with her this weekend in New Orleans for her bachelorette party. I am so excited and think it will be super fun and just chilly enough to pull out some of my favorite winter outfits.

I came across this adorable DIY Bridesmaid Card idea on Oncewed designed by Anna of Rifle Designs. How cute is this idea-a paper chain of all your bridesmaids with a card asking your friend to be your bridesmaid? Love it! Instructions listed on the above link.

Wow you are prepared!

When I was getting married I got my bridal party sorted out...then it all changed...then it all changed again! Now we dont have a relationship with anyone who was in our wedding except for one! You might be best to ask people you dont like since being in a wedding seems to be a kiss of death for friendships :O(
