I WAS A BRIDESMAID FOR THE FIRST TIME | BRIDESMAID SERIES PT I




  So on February 25th, I finally got my chance to be a bridesmaid, ahh! 

I had been waiting for this day for so long and when my best friend of thirteen years asked me I felt so honoured and just could not wait. The party girl in me came out and there I was planning her hen and getting myself prepared for the big day. I just knew from when she was planning it that it would be beautiful.

The night before

The night before I stayed over at her house so we could pamper and preen ourselves ready for the big day in the morning. Typical gals, us saying we must be in bed asleep by 10pm so we aren't tired in the morning. Well, we ended up getting to sleep at 1am, LOL. 

We made sure the dress was perfect, steamed and back in its bag. Decorated the hangers with personalisation (although mine went missing at the venue *cries*) hung up all the bridesmaid / page boy outfits and then ended the evening with a lovely relaxing rose scented bubble bath with thanks to her fiancé who went shopping to get us some goodies.

The bride to be couldn't fall asleep due to last minute jitters, I was sleeping in her little girls bed and during the night banged my head on the iron surrounding so we both ended up with banging headaches and absolutely shattered come the next morning ha ha!

The big day 

So the big day finally arrived and we were up and out and arrived at the venue by late morning. The make-up and hair team arrived first and it was lovely after all the panic the night before for us both, especially the bride to be, to just relax and enjoy our makeovers. I asked for a natural yet dramatic look and I absolutely loved what the artist did, and of course my best friend looked stunning!

Then it came to me helping prepare the other bridesmaids and before we knew it, what felt like hours until we had to go downstairs for the ceremony turned in to 'you literally have five minutes!' and a crazy rush to get everyone positioned and ready. Thats when the nerves set in. They say it's normal for the bride to get pre jitters, but where do you ever see the mention of the bridesmaid?! Well you have now, I'm telling you I was sweating, felt like I couldn't breathe and even though I couldn't wait to walk behind my best friend down the aisle, quite frankly another part of me also just wanted to run away. Gosh, being a bridesmaid for the first time is nerve racking. I was panicking what if she falls and then I have to try and hold her up, what if I trip on my dress and fall and ruin her special day?!

Though I needn't of worried, it went perfectly and the whole ceremony was amazing and once it was over, we both wanted to do it all all over again.


The rest of the evening we sat down for a delicious three course meal with a starter of soup, main was a roast dinner and dessert was chocolate profiteroles, mmm. Then there was the speeches, the bar then opened and that was us for the rest of the night - dancing away on the dance floor and making complete tits out of ourselves dancing to the macarena lol. It was all perfect.

Have any of you been a bridesmaid?
