What a magical day our wedding day was! I have never felt so completely loved like I did on that day. Having all of your loved ones travel in from near and far to celebrate with you is truly the greatest feeling. If I could select a few moments that were highlights on the day, the morning spent getting ready with my very best friends, my bridesmaids, would be one of them.
Having lived in 3 different provinces since high school has allowed me to make so many new friends. With that I have formed some very close bonds that no distance could ever diminish, hence why 4 of my 5 bridesmaids had to travel in from different cities and even countries to be a part of my special day. I don’t think there ever was a time that I’ve had all 5 of them in the room together so having them there for my wedding day was so special.
We spent the morning getting ready at my mom’s house. It was so nice to have an amazing hair and makeup team come to her place to pamper us in the morning. Being at the home I had spent time growing up in made the start to the day very relaxed. Between hair and makeup, I loved being able to hang out with my bridesmaids, share lots of laughs, some bubbly and of course so puppy snuggles. I felt completely calm, even leading up to Kyle and I’s first look, which took place in my mom’s backyard. Because any wedding day is full of so many emotions, I think getting it started right is so important.
I wanted to gift my bridesmaids something special on the wedding day that they would be able to wear and feel amazing in. I was so happy to have partnered with Canadian owned, BridesMade, to dress my girls in pretty pink robes. I was very happy with the wide range of options there was to choose from, from fit to colour to print. Best of all, I really loved that we were comfortable in our robes but also felt put together before even having our dresses on.
