No, I’m not talking the Julia Roberts Blockbuster (but now that I’m thinking about it, I could definitely watch that). I’m actually talking about one of my actual best friends, and her wedding from this past weekend.
Her and her husband were engaged soon after Greg and me, and planning our weddings together was such a huge blessing. Because her wedding was 5 months after ours everything was happening at very different times. While we started out doing the same things, I continued on full force while she had time to focus on the details. My wedding being in the mid-summer and hers the beginning of winter also meant everything was opposite. Where I went bright, she went pastel. There was no sense of competition; there were no arguments.
The absolute best part for me was both of us being bridesmaids in each other’s wedding.
Seeing the smiles on their faces after being announced Mr. And Mrs., there just aren’t words.
Being on the other side of the wedding was perfect for me. I was able to fully engage and be her support throughout the day but also to think back on the memories of my big day just five months ago.
We laughed. We cried. They are married.
Life is good.
