Fabulous News







Good morning, friends! I apologize for the late opening to the new week. I must say, it has been quite a week so far, with a fun email in my inbox (more news to share soon) and so many things to do that I have been immensely busy. However, with so much happening, I received the most lovely request to be a maid of honor! I cannot wait, and actually have never had the pleasure of being a maid of honor. A flower girl, many times, and a "junior" bridesmaid, yes, but not a maid of honor. I would like to be as helpful as possible to the bride —she is such a beautiful person inside and out —If you have any advice at all, please do share!

  3. A of all - those pictures are stunning! I'm always impressed by your impeccable taste... B of all - Thank you for reciprocating in comments, you're too kind! C of all - Congratulations! My gosh, you're in for a ride! My only maid of honour experience was for my sister's nuptials and it was a very stressful moment in our lives, more so than it should be... Hope that it's not stressful and that it's a great adventure for you!

  4. Love the feel of this shoot and the last dress. Congratulations on being a bridesmaid. I know it can get stressful, so I guess just be as easy going with the brides suggestions as possible and try and remember any little nice things you can do to help out especially when they are not specifically asked of you. Those touches are always appreciated. x

  6. Darling that is wonderful news and of course a testament of the beautiful friend and person that you are! x

    Maid of Honour. I too have had this privilege and I took it seriously.
    It obviously means different things to different people and I think it's best to sit down with your girlfriend and ask her exactly what you can do for her. Find out if she wants you to take some chores off her plate and help her delegate.
    For me the role also involved hosting the 'Hen's Night'(girlfriends only) and also a 'Bridal Shower' (incl family). I booked manicures, pedicures and ensured all the pre-wed beauty and girly appointments were kept to. Most of all I was there for her the night before the wedding and through out the big day. From ensuring the flowers are fresh, adjusting the dress at the altar, to the 'maid of honour speech' at the reception, and just generally being there as a loving support, it's such a fun job! You will love it!


    Can't wait to hear more.
