Bride-to-be Nicole’s two favorite things are Disney and Halloween. Naturally this makes us instant best friends
in our mind!
stalking following Nicole on instagram at @disneybride2be for a while. When we saw her epic pictures on IG from the couple’s joint bachelor / bachelorette party we begged to hear her full story.

At some point in my teenage years my mother told me a story about a wedding in the late 80’s. As guests often say, “the bride was beautiful.” She was described as having a huge princess gown with lots of lace. Almost in the same breath my mom laughed, making an off hand comment that the bride’s dress was so big she needed help from multiple women to use the bathroom. It was a sight she said she’d never forget.
Flash forward 25 years later and brides are still in the same boat. So what do you do when you’re wearing a wedding dress and you need to pee?
In this post we interview Lisa from The Wedding Cat. She describes herself as a recent bride, who DIY’d the majority of her Detroit wedding, with a little help from friends and family. Besides writing and interviewing you might catch her looking at cat pictures.

What are your favorite parts of being a bridesmaid?
The wedding-related events like the bridal shower, bachelorette, and getting ready together the morning of the wedding. Plus it’s fun to meet new people from the bride’s life. I’ve made really good friends with bridesmaids I’ve met through friend’s weddings.
When speaking with bride Melanie about her Gatsby themed shower she told us she was extremely surprised!
My bridesmaids and mother-in-law went above and beyond to ensure that my day was great!
So how do you make sure the bride has the right attire for the day without ruining the surprise? Do what these bridesmaids did and have the attire at the venue waiting for the bride!
