Nick and I have officially asked all the people of our wedding party to be a part of it (and they all said yes)! I was so happy to ask my girls to be by my side on our wedding day, and they were equally as excited. I was also with Nick as he asked his buddies – and man, guys’ reactions are so much less exciting. I’ll take my girls’ screams of disbelief and happy dances any day.
THE REVEAL – Bridesmaids
