In my previous post, I told you guys how I asked my Maids of Honor and Bridesmaids to be part of my wedding. I wanted to share a little blurb about each one and why they are going to be part of my wedding.
As I had mentioned in my previous blog, I have three Maids of Honor. I’ve been asked why several times. Why? Because I want to. hahah! No, but seriously.
Well before I had met Matt (my fiance), I had always thought that my sister Daniella would be my Maid of Honor whenever I did get married. And now that the time has come, she is still one of my Maids of Honor, but she will be thousands of miles away during the planning process of it all. She is going to be finishing her last year of college in Illinois, so we definitely needed extra help. So Daniella, Matt and I brainstormed and we thought of my two really good friends: Tiffany and Maria. And that is how I have three Maids of Honor and I am very happy that it worked out this way!
So let’s get the introductions started!
Daniella: Maid of Honor
Daniella is my 21 year old sister and she is the oldest out of my three sisters. She is also the one that I go to and share mostly everything with and I consider her to be one of my best friends. She is also one of the people that gave me that push I needed to sign up for eHarmony.
Tiffany: Maid of Honor
I met Tiffany at the speech clinic where I am currently working and we just clicked and became inseparable (we joke around that we have separation issues). We were both single at the time and she, along with my sister Daniella, gave me that push to sign up for eHarmony. (In case you didn’t know, I met Matt on eHarmony.) Shortly after I met Matt, she also signed up for eHarmony and met her boyfriend there too. So, we definitely bonded over doing the whole eHarmony dating thing and she was the one that I would go to and tell her all my “Matt stories” when Matt and I first started dating. To sum it up, she has been there for me from the beginning of “Matt and I”, so to me it was a no-brainer to have her as one of my Maids of Honor. Plus, she is super awesome at planning and organizing!!
Maria: Maid of Honor
I met Maria in middle school and we didn’t really get along. We kind of hated each other! It wasn’t until the end of High School that she started working at the same bakery that I worked at and we actually got to know each other and became really good friends. She has been there for me through the heartbreaks and now I need her to be there for me for when I walk down the isle and marry the love of my life. She has seen me mature and grow into the woman that I am today and it’s only right to have her as one of my Maids of Honor. And, she is also very good at planning and organizing!!
Jackie is my 19 year old sister. She gets along really well with Matt and Cameron (Matt’s son). She has a super easy going personality and of course she was going to be one of my bridesmaids because she is my sister, duh! She has recently taken up an interest in art (painting), she is actually pretty good!
Julyanna is my youngest sister, she is 15 years old. She is on the basketball team at school and loves animals! And like I said before, if you’re my sister, you are definitely going to be a bridesmaid (you don’t have a choice haha)!
I met Anaceli freshmen year in High School. At the end of Middle School, I was kind of hanging out with the wrong crowd and when I met her, I realized what actual friendship was. So, we sometimes joke around that she saved me from my bad days haaha!
I met Laura at the beginning of Middle School and we hung out with the same group of friends. We even did a Talent Show together in 7th grade with our friends to the Cindy Lauper song ‘Girls Just Wanna Have Fun’. We’ve been friends ever since, but we became a lot closer after High School.
Kendra is Matt’s niece and according to Matt, he is her favorite uncle! I love the relationship that Kendra and Matt have and of course we wanted her to be part of our wedding!
These are my main ladies for our big day and I am so glad that they’ll be standing up there next to me! Love them!
