Just a quick shout out to the amazing siblings, future-in-laws, and friends whom we are proud to have at our side as we get married.
I've really been so happy with my BMs throughout the whole wedding planning process thus far. They all live far away, so I am just so honored to know they'll be there beside me. But they really have gone above and beyond -- they are all dear friends who have been nothing but supportive. My MOH recently reached out to me and surprised me that she has been trying to set up a bachelorette party the evening before the wedding rehearsal, which would be easiest for most of the BMs interested since they can just do one trip. I have no idea where or what we're doing yet -- and don't need to. She and the other BMs are taking initiative and I'm just humbled by their thoughtfulness. My MOH and I have been best friends since middle-school, know one another's families and other friends well, and have been through so much together. We don't always see eye to eye on everything, but we know each other so well, and even though we may go years at a time without seeing one another now, when we do get together, it's like no time has lapsed at all. It's cliche, but she really is the sister I've never had in my life and I am so happy she is my MOH.
Also, one of my BMs is a dear friend from undergrad, but whom I got to know best and really develop a deep friendship with in graduate school when I met and started dating FI. She was newly engaged at the time, and I was a BM for her. She has been so supportive, and has impromptu sent me several things in the mail (wedding mags, a "Guidesbook for the Groom", and her old underskirt so I didn't have to buy one [we used to swap clothes all the time, so she knew we were the same size!]).
What are some of your favorite stories of your BMs and MOHs (either wedding related or not)? We all hear lots of the negative (either brides who don't give enough love and respect for their WP, or occasionally, some BSC bridal party members), so I thought it would be nice to have a place to share some of the positive stories about the amazing people who have been/ will be our highest guests of honor.
