Exciting times. Many "best wishes" have been flying out of my mouth lately.
Best Wishes #1
This gorgeous girl (aka: my bestie) got engaged last weekend. I am giddy with excitement for her and her lovely fiance. All I want to do is fly to NYC so I can sit in a bookstore cafe with her and page through Bridal magazines dreaming of her perfect wedding. A lot like we did when we were 20. Best wishes B!
Best Wishes #2
My first wedding of 2011! I was excited, thrilled and a little bit scared. The night ended with a beautifully happy Mr. and Mrs. What more can you ask for? Best wishes D & L!

Best Wishes #3
Another very exciting engagement. Best wishes to a pair of SoCal friends who always manage to brighten my day when I spend time with them. I am so happy for you!
Etiquette says that you are supposed to say "best wishes" to the Bride and "congratulations" to the Groom. I have adopted this, but I say best wishes to the couple. I'm not sure why Emily Post says to do this, but I like to do it because I feel that Congratulations feels very final. Job well done-like. But to me, best wishes says your journey is just beginning and I wish you the best upon it. Best wishes for a life filled with laughter, love and everything you dream of for yourself. Best wishes says all that I feel in my heart. It may sound cheese-tastic, but it's the truth.
