Engaged and a Bridesmaid

August 21st, 2013 by     


This past Saturday, I served as a bridesmaid in Violet Blossom’s wedding.  It was an absolutely beautiful wedding, and I was proud to be a part of it.  Violet Blossom and I have been friends since kindergarten, in case the Garden didn’t know!

I’ve been a bridesmaid in multiple weddings before Violet’s, but this is the first since getting engaged.  I know that Violet Blossom is excited for me to be engaged, but I also knew that I should keep discussion focused on her wedding from her bridal shower to her reception.  We did talk here and there about my pending nuptials, but I was careful to stay focused on her big day.

I will say that being a bridesmaid in the midst of planning your own wedding offers a unique opportunity to learn and observe.  I hadn’t been a bridesmaid since fall of 2009, so this past Saturday served as a reminder of how things go.  I also took notes on things to look for in decor, ceremony details, and some vendors.  Violet Blossom’s DJ, Jason from Cipriano Productions, was a blast, so I might end up hiring him for my own big day!

So I feel that, although it was a new experience, being a bridesmaid while engaged was also a great experience full of laughter and learning opportunities.  I feel that I kept a good balance between my own excitement and the joy I felt for my friend!
