Something magical happened over this past weekend, a day so memorable and exciting I think I cried and laughed and squealed and hugged more in a short few hours than I have in my whole life.
Morgs and I asked our girls and guys to be our Maid of Honour, Best Man, Bridesmaids and Groomsmen.
We picked our Dream Team!
It finally feels real.
The emotions I can share with those that will be standing beside us on our biggest day feels unreal and the excitement we are all now feeding off is in-explainable.
I took this whole asking thing very seriously though. I truly believe that the choice to accept a ring, the choice to promise yourself to one person for the rest of your life, the decision to enter in to a contract of marriage – I go in to it with a lot of love and excitement – but with a hugely serious side to it as well.
Vows, to me are promises. Promises that, throughout your life with the one you said I do to, you will refer back to time and time and time again to remind yourself that on that beautiful day, out of all the souls on earth, you both choose each other to make those promises to.
On that day though, you have not just a room full of your favourite people witnessing those vows, you have a set of your nearest and dearest beside both the bride and groom, who are there to then support you as friends throughout your marriage.
And THAT, is hugely important and held a lot of loving weight for Morgs & I.
So, when it came to picking our bridal party – asking the people we love SO dearly to stand by us on the day we promise our forevers, I wanted them to know how much it meant to us to have them on our team.
I spent my Saturday just gone sitting with each of them individually doing our favourite things (champagne with my sister and then a breakfast, coffee date & lunch date respectively with my other soul sista’s) giving them a box chock full’o hand made love with one incredibly important question in the lid…
I have no words for the love I have for these girls (& guys) and Morgs & I are SO honored they’ll be sharing in on the emotion and love that will be the biggest day of our life…
Without further adue, I am SO excited for you to meet them…
