Another Wedding??!!

You may wonder why I'm hobbling along on blog crutches, keeping the bride side alive (while the home side is thriving!).  The answer is this lady, Palindromaid of Honor Emily.

This go around, she's the bride and I'm a matron of honor (matron! yikes, but not matronly!).  Since I've never been a bridesmaid before, I'm psyched about seeing a wedding from this angle and having a part in planning some of the festivities.  Beyond party planning, fashion talking, friend supporting, I'm also really looking forward to celebrating a wedding at our mutual alma mater, Bucknell.

With an out of town shower, bachelorette, and wedding, I'll share inspiration and details along the way.  Right now I'm starting to think about the timing of the events that the bridesmaids host and we've started to look at dresses!  Emily's love of Agatha Christie, sushi, tea, and baking have already gotten my little wheels spinning in the inspiration direction.  

What were some of your first steps as a MOH?  What were some of your favorite touches from your MOH?

You and I seem to be in a similar boat - first time bridesmaids as matrons of honor. I'll be the MOH in my best friend's wedding in October.

Yay for Bucknell weddings! If you/she need any info about Lewisburg area vendors, I'd be glad to share what I know :)
