Aisle Style: How I Asked My Bridesmaids

As the saying goes, "time flies when you're having fun." Considering how quickly the wedding planning process is going, I can relate to this statement now more than ever. I can't believe nearly six months ago I popped the question to my bridesmaids and in less than a year, I'll be married to Rob.  I honestly teared up writing that, I am a total sap. If anyone has advice on how to keep yourself emotionally together on your wedding day- please share the tips!! 

I had so much fun planning a special fiesta-inspired lunch themed Margs and Maids for my bridesmaids. The entire event was a surprise. I was fortunate enough to trick most of the girls into thinking we were all getting together to go shopping. Leading up to the weekend of the lunch, I was so giddy I could barely have a phone conversation with any of the girls. I knew if I did I might accidentally slip and say something to spoil the surprise. 

As you may have seen from previous aisle style posts (here and here), I've been working with Style Me Pretty to take you along on my wedding journey in hopes to inspire brides throughout their planning process. Today I am sharing every little detail from the Margs and Maids surprise lunch so be sure to head over to SMP to get all the juicy details! Thank you for following along and allowing me to open up to share this very special and personal journey.
