Five words that can make a girl cry for many reasons. Tears of joy to be asked to participate on the most special of days. Tears of fear in anticipation of what satin disaster one might be required to wear. Everyone seen 27 Dresses?
I had the most amazing ladies stand up for me on our big day and their love and support meant so much. I appreciated every detail they attended to and every near catastrophe they managed. It was a perfect day thanks to them. Plus, it probably helped that their J.Crew dresses were adorable.
Being the bride was the best, but I’m pretty excited to play the part of a bridesmaid for the first time. A big congrats to my beautiful friends, Mindy and Max, on their recent engagement!
Last week I received the cutest bundle of great news in the mail. The most thoughtful package from Mindy asking me to be a bridesmaid.
With my own bridal party near and far, I too had to get creative about how I asked my lovely girls. I decorated canvas tote bags (to be used on our bachelorette getaway to Phoenix) and packaged them up in a box that said, “Will you be my…”.
Whether you’re a bride-to-be, a single gal who keeps a secret stash of future wedding ideas, or a has-been bride that just can’t let it go (yours truly), hope this inspires you to get crafting or simply reminds you to love on your girlfriends.
I wish to brighten your day with a little inspiration. Inspiration to try something new. Inspiration to find joy in cooking and crafting, entertaining and styling, writing and sharing. I’m Alexandra Joy and I have many joys to share.
