So, as you may or may not know by now, one of my dearest friends, (we call her A), is getting married soon… ish. She’s asked me to coordinate and be in the wedding as the “Bro of Honor.” This is such a great honor and also quite the challenge. It’s a lot of responsibility to handle one of these tasks. But BOTH?! Luckily, I’m awesome and I’ve already got a solid game plan for the entire day. Even though I only got the news about 2 weeks ago (I’m kind of efficient sometimes). Check out my last post here to get all of the details about how this whole shebang got started.
So, as A was talking to me the other day bout ring shopping with the groom (K), something hit me. She is so freakin lucky. I mean, obviously because K is a great guy and they fit together so well. But, I really meant that she’s lucky to have me. I mean, what girl can say that she has a friend who LOVES to talk about wedding stuff 24/7? Most of your girl friends will be excited for you at first obviously. And they’ll keep feigning that excitement all the way up to the big day when they realize that you’re done talking about chair covers, and flowers, and rings, and tossing bouquets, and wedding playlists, and all that other stuff that they’re not anywhere near being ready to worry about yet. But, it’s all you’re thinking about, so it’s obviously all you’re talking about. This is where I come in. I love weddings. Everything about them. I can talk about it all day long. Not just the fun stuff like booze, or decor, or tossing things, but the actual guts of the wedding; the seating chart, the set up, the schedule for the entire weekend. That is my zone. So, yes. A is very lucky to have a friend like me. Because not only am I helping her with the wedding prep, but I’m keeping the rest of her friends sane.
We’ve changed color schemes about 3 times. K has vetoed our original ideas about what the guys would wear. And we’ve decided to combine rustic with glam-bling. This all may change anytime in the near future. A texts me whenever she has a thought about switching something, or a new idea. And it makes me so happy for her. Happy that she has me to talk about this stuff with. Even though she’s changed her mind a few times, We’re still on the same page about all of it. It’s a really crazy thing, but it works. And that’s how I know that this day is going to go off without a hitch. I mean, how could it not when you’ve got someone as awesome as this kid right here?
So, recently engaged ladies out there, I urge you to find a friend who loves weddings. Someone who you would trust to help plan your wedding. Someone you can share all of the details with (and I do mean ALL of the details). This person will save your life. Good luck out there girls. And check back to find out all of the other shenanigans and on-goings with this huge day in our lives.
