I'm the matron of honor in my best friend from college's upcoming wedding. Last night, while watching Bridesmaids , I had a wave of relief flow over me as I thought - well, at least things won't get this out of hand!
Being an out of town Matron of Honor can sometimes make things difficult - you can't be there for every little thing, even though you really want to be. I was talking to the bride one afternoon and she was taking about purchasing a pillow for the rings. In a moment of crazy I told her that she had to have a ring barer to need a ring pillow and that I wouldn't be carrying a ring pillow down the asile - I had no idea she had asked a little one who is a friend of the family. Oops. haha.
Anyway, two days before we headed home from Texas I flew to Detroit and, along with the two other wonderful bridesmaids, threw the bride a beautiful wedding shower. It was a small intimate brunch at one of her favorite restaurants just blocks from her home. Everyone had fun watching the bride open her gifts - blissfully unaware of the "breaking ribbons =babies" superstition and then we got everyone to empty their purses in a good old fashion shower game.
The wedding is now just a few weeks away so I want to share a few pictures from the shower.
