Review on The Bridesmaids

Hey guys. I am back with another book review! I'm really loving this book club that Bichbox and Birchbloggers started, I haven't read a book in a good while. This review is going to be on The Bridesmaids True Tales of Love, Envy, Loyalty...And Terrible Dresses by Eimear Lynch.

When I first received this book I thought it was going to be a fiction novel from the view points of the bridesmaids in a wedding. This book is true stories and the author's own personal story of being a bridesmaid in a wedding. She intreviewed different women and men to get their stories and experiences with being in a wedding. I absoultely loved reading this book. I laughed, cried, gasped and all other emotions while reading this book. I would recommend this for anyone that is about to walk down the aisle or about to be in wedding party. My favorites stories from the book were from the men. It was very interesting to hear how a few men were "Bridesmen" and really took part in the whole experience. One guy was the "Man of Honor" for his sister and it was so sweet that he was planning everything, keeping her calm and just being a great brother. He took on a lot of stresses that the maid of honor would in a wedding party but he did an amazing job from what I read. There were so many interesting stories in this book and was just an overall great read.

I haven't had many bridesmaids experiences. I was only in 3 weddings in my life and all were family weddings. The last wedding I was in was 9 years ago. I have only been to 1 bachelorette party and a few dozen weddings and bridal showers. When it is my turn to make that trip down the aisle, I hope not to become a bridezilla at any point lol!

So that is it for my review on The Bridesmaids. Have you ever been a bridesmaid? What were your experiences with being in a wedding? Comment below and let me know!!


  1. This books sounds like it would be good! I have been a bridesmaid in 4 weddings...2 as a teen/adult. I had good experiences with no bridezillas however my own wedding was far more stressful/drama haha!

    1. It was a good read Tanya, I enjoyed it. I can imagine your own wedding being stressful with wanting everything to go right!

Happily Ever Johnson: 3 Months To Go!

*Que screaming and running around like a crazy person*  I can't believe we are three months away from the big day!! It seems like yesterday we just got engaged and started making plans and now it is almost here. I'm not freaking out yet (Lies, I am on the inside lol). I just want to make sure we don't forget anything lol. It seems like it is so easy to forget something when just about everything is going on. I'm getting into the swing of things in my new position and most of my focus seems to be there at the moment but I'm making sure to keep up with everything. I recently met with my coordinators (aka My mom,aunts and cousins) to preview the centerpieces. I'm so thankful for them stepping in and helping with the decor and planning. I'll give you guys a sneak peek at the centerpieces but you won't see the full effect of everything until after the big day.

Of course I drew my inspiration from Pinterest. I have spent so many hours on there and found so m…

Spring Fashion Trends

For many years I would say that I'm going to NYFW and then forget when it is lol! One day I'm going to make it there lol! Speaking of fashion, today I'm going to share a few Spring Fashion trends that I will most likely be wearing this season. (Images taken from the web)
Vibrant Stripes
I love wearing bright and bold colors when it gets warmer outside. This trend is super fun and such a statement. You can wear this in the office with a bold striped button up or out on the town with a maxi dress. 

One Shoulder
I really think this trend is super cute and flirty. I have seen many versions of the one should trend over the years and this one seems to be my favorite. I would probably wear this with a top or dress. 

Slogan T-Shirts
I know these have been around forever and this trend to me will never go out of style. There are so many slogans out there, it is hard to keep up with all of them. I do have a few myself and I love how you can dress them up or down.

This is anothe…
