(Wedding Recap) Getting the Girls Ready

My bridesmaids are wonderful women.  I promise these words come from an honest place deep down inside me.  Mostly they deserve such complements because they put up with me for a year-and-a-half of wedding planning and then my sharp orders on the day-of the event.  I tried my utmost best to not turn all bridezilla.  But let me tell you, if you've never gone through it before, there's no preparing for the rush of emotions.  I swear any woman who gets away without even a hint of bridezilla must be hiding something.  or holding it in.

Of track.

My bridesmaids deserve a medal.
or a gift.
On the day of the wedding I gifted them each a different Coach clutch.
Thanks to the a shopping-angel's coupon delivery, I purchased these babies for a *very* competitive price.
Always be on the lookout for a good deal, even 6 months before the wedding!

And so the readies began.
Curlers and button downs (no hair mess-ups!) and patience, oh my!
Meagan makes being athletic & beautiful look easy.

Tell me Kathryn's beauty doesn't astound you?
One day (soon) she'll make a beautiful bride.
She'll also kill me for typing/publishing this.
(But Kat, it's not like Eric reads my blog!!!!)

 My sister rocks the mom-card, and the big-sister card, and the cool card.
She makes me feel better about one day "going there" as a parent (being all pretty and in control even though she might not really know what she's doing... but you'd never know that.)

Diana wins for most favors-cashed-in.
You know that friend you can always turn to when you need something? trip to the ER? ride home from Target when you just bought a bicycle and it's now snowing? advice and just a general ear?
Yeah, Di's got my back.  I hope she knows I've got hers, too!

They were all there, and then some, for me on my wedding day!

Love. These. Ladies.
