As soon as a girl gets her ring, she starts to think of how and when to gather up her bride tribe. There are so many options out there + with the help of etsy, you can whip something up in a day. Being the President of a sorority, there were 50+ women I loved dearly + I knew I couldn’t have 50 gals standing beside me on my day.
The one gal I knew for 100% that I would ask was Tyler, my fiance’s sister (@tylermichellewhiteblog). I even knew that if I asked others, she would still be my Maid of Honor. So, knowing that, I decided to only ask her.
We take a family vacation each year to Destin + I thought, what better place to ask her to stand beside me on my day than AT THE BEACH?! Hint–there isn’t one. I began to pull a few things together + wrote her a letter, expressing how much she meant to me. I couldn’t find anything I loved with “MOH” on it, so I chose to just buy with bridesmaid.
Before dinner one night, I had Zac, her now fiance, take her in to get a drink. While she was away, I set up camp at a nearby picnic table. I can’t even put into words the butterflies in my tummy! I knew she would say yes, but I was SO excited to ask her. Soon enough, she came walking out of Crab Trab with a Pina Colada in hand + had no idea I was about to ask her.
Of course she said yes + we took lots of pics after. What else would we do? *hehehe* From then to now she has helped me in so many ways preparing for our big day. Making decisions for a wedding is NOT easy + I don’t think I could have done it/remained sane without her.
To make sure I expressed my gratitude to all of my other best gals, I sent them honorary bridesmaid’s letters. I’ve attached it below! I am so thankful for the role they each have played in my life + am so blessed to have so many supportive women around me.
This has been the best season of my entire life + I can’t believe it is coming to a close in only 23 days! Bring on the newlywed season + flipping the tables to get my gal Ty married!
