But this past August, something happened. The week after our ten year anniversary, I got to be maid of honor in my best friend's wedding. August was even busier, crazier and more joyful than usual.

ten years, man
a huge, unwieldy, gorgeous river wedding
on wedding planning, random thoughts
2. Get the bride to prioritize the to-do lists. The Pinterest icing-on-the-cake stuff should be done beforehand.
3. Figure out who the coordinators and go-to people are and share Google docs with them with the to-do lists and the time line.
4. Eat and make sure the bride eats at some point before the ceremony.
5. Don't forget your comfortable shoes!
making the bouquets
1. Floral tape is amazing. I never realized it's how you make the flowers stand up nice and tall and get flowers like sunflowers not to droop.
2. Start with the focal point flowers and then fill in. Pick out the best flowers. Peel away the outer layer of the roses.
3. If you use tall, wild looking flowers, you align them so they are several inches taller than the other flowers and then cut them down to desired size.
4. You use the tape again, in stages, as your bouquet takes shape.
5. Store bouquets in the fridge in warm water.
