I have the very best friends

All through Uni the majority of my friends were guys.  I hate the hassle that often comes with having girl friends.  The catiness, the drama, the competition.  Guys are much simpler – they tell you how it is all the time.  No pretense.

That being said, I have gone through life with some fantastic girl friends and it was obvious who my choices for bridesmaid should be to take part in my wedding day.

Zoë, Amanda and Hollie I met when I moved forms in year 8 at school and Vicki was my best girl mate from Uni.

In the lead up to the wedding they helped me to create the invitations…

Making my wedding invitationsTook me on some amazing hen dos.

Glamping in WhitlinghamMade some beautiful wedding decorations and spent the whole day the day before the wedding helping me to put them up.

Spent the entire morning from 8am-12:50pm making food for the evening guests, before getting changed and made up just five minutes before they were due to be at the church.  Not whinging once!

They also stayed late after the evening reception was over, cleaning and clearing the hall with their boyfriends and husbands.

Not only did they do all those things, but they also gave beautiful speeches after the dinner.

Without a doubt I have the best girlfriends I could possibly want!

Have you been to a wedding before where the bridesmaids have given a speech?

  1. I tend to get on with guys better than I do girls too, for the same reason, but I also have some great girlfriends. Some things you just can’t chat to guys about.

  2. Awww! It’s obvious that your girlfriends mean the world to you :). They’re so sweet for being such fantastic bridesmaids!

    And I totally know what you mean. Girls=drama. Guys are much more forward and don’t get catty over the smallest things! I like having a healthy mix of boy and girl friends. It’s the best of both worlds :).

    1. They were so lovely and their speeches were perfect on the day!
      I do have much more of a mix of friends now, and I’m probably closer to my girl mates than the guy ones. Definitely the best of both worlds!

    1. I know! It does feel so long ago! They decided between themselves to have two going one way and two tied another way, and they complimented each bridesmaid that way, rather than being forced into a shape that didn’t suit them at all!

  3. Aww so lovely! And they all look beautiful in their dresses! Nice that you filmed it so you can save it for forever.
    I’m with you on the girl thing. Girls are complicated, bitchy, devious and difficult. Boys are soo much easier!

    1. We’d asked one of the ushers to film it, and the bridesmaids filmed my Dad and the Best Man. But this video came from one of our friends and came out really well. He’s in the process of sending me several more videos so I can’t wait to see what else he captured!
