My Fair Lady reference anyone?
We made it through the bachelorette weekend and now it's time for one of my best friend's wedding! Finally! It seems like this day would never come and now that it's (almost) here, I'm wishing for just a little more time.
|How cute is this picture!? Their dog-child made an appearance during their engagement picture session!|
As the maid of honor (and over-anxious person in general), I have a million, trillion things to do before the rehearsal dinner on Friday:
-write toast speech
-practice walking in my heels + dress
-make sure said dress still fits
-make a slideshow presentation of baby Rebecca and baby Chad
-get my tragic excuse for nails done
-pack (on top of packing up my apartment for the BIG MOVE)
-what to wear to the rehearsal dinner (nothing WHITE)
I know this is nothing compared to what the bride-to-be has going on (believe me, I've been on call everyday this week), but y'all. I'm dreaming about what my speech will be. And having nightmares of what could go wrong. Does anyone have tips on writing a speech? They would be greatly appreciated.
Do I make it funny or serious? Long or short? I don't want everyone sobbing, but what if no one laughs if I try to make it funny? The obvious answer is a happy medium, but how? This wedding professional has never had to make a speech before and may or may not be freaking out, just a tad.
Other than that small detail, I'm so, so excited! It's time to say #peaceoutpatterson and time to #lovethelessards!
