I’ve mentioned a few times that I will be having two maids of honor. I think I always knew I was going to have two, even before Mr. Coyote was in the picture. I don’t have any sisters, but I can say that MOH A and MOH D come pretty damn close. I met BM D in 5th grade and BM A a few years later. For all of middle school and high school we were completely inseparable. Sleepovers, movies, trips to the mall, even vacations… Whatever it was we did it together. We were the epitome of BFFs.

Of course after graduation we went our separate ways, but we kept in touch and made sure to visit each other as often as possible.
Right before our high school graduation in 2004.
We all still live in New York state, but it’s amazing how large the state actually is:

I am the first in my little trio to be getting married and I have to say that it’s been quite an adjustment for me. My girls are more than happy for me and love Mr. Coyote almost as much as they love me (sorry buddy, but I always come first when it comes to these ladies!). Even so, it’s definitely been a transition to move from single-girl-friend to engaged-woman and eventually to that old-married-lady that goes to bed at 8PM and never hangs out anymore (just kidding, that’s never gonna happen). And so, in honor of my two very best friends and of losing my singledom, I am planning the ultimate sleepover party.
Mr. Coyote and I have already decided that we will spend the night before the wedding apart so I booked one of the amazing suites at our venue’s hotel and invited the girls to stay with me. I know I will be a bundle of nerves and honestly…no one knows me better than these ladies do. I couldn’t ask for anything better than to have my two besties spend the night with me; drink some wine with me, make me laugh and cuddle with me until my wedding day.
Yes, we cuddle. No shame here!
I may not have been blessed with sisters, but I definitely scored the next best thing. My life is way better when these girls are in it.
How will you be spending the night before your wedding? Are you spending it with your significant other? Alone? With family or friends?
