My Bridesmaid, My Friend

Bridesmaid holding a poem from the bride

We've been together, (name), through thick and thin,
Sometimes people ask if you're really my twin!
I don't think we could be closer even if we were,
And you feel the very same way, I'm sure.

So it's no surprise you're with me this day,
To head down the aisle before I make my way.
I couldn't have a better bridesmaid or a better friend,
So just for you (name), this poem I have penned.

A Bridesmaid Is Someone Special

A bridesmaid is someone special
More than an ordinary friend.
She's someone you can count on,
And her strength to you she'll lend.

She'll wear that silly dress you picked
Without a single complaint,
And when you see her wearing it,
You realize she's really a saint.

She'll patiently listen to your last-minute doubts,
And shore up your shakey confidence,
When you're thinking of pulling a runaway bride,
And jumping the nearest fence.

She'll make sure everything's perfect
As she gives you a last minute check.
And when she smiles before she heads down the aisle,
You'll realize you no longer feel like a wreck.

Yes a bridesmaid is someone special,
Of that there can be no doubt,
And I'm so glad I chose you, (name),
Because you're a gem both inside and out.

Thank You for Being My Bridesmaid

Thanks for being there, (bridesmaid's name),
On my beautiful wedding day.
Having you as my bridesmaid
Meant more than I can say.

It was comforting to see you there,
As I walked down that long aisle.
You gave me a boost of confidence
When I saw your encouraging smile.

You helped make the day so special,
So thank you once again,
And know that as the years go by,
I'll be there for you too my friend.

Thank You for Being My Maid/Matron of Honor

Words are not enough, (name),
To express my gratitude to you,
For being my maid/matron of honor,
And for all you had to do.

The day wouldn't have been as special
Without having you there,
And I'm grateful for all the moments
That we got to share.

So thank you for your kindness,
And for being such a wonderful friend.
I truly appreciate you even more
Than you can comprehend.
