It’s been 1 whole year since we both said I DO, and quite frankly, it feels like just yesterday! There will never be any amount of words that can explain how blessed I am to have you in my life. God truly broke the mold when he made you, with that being said, I thank God each and every day for allowing you to be my husband. I love that I get to share this life alongside you, you are one of the smartest and strongest people I know. Whenever I see you after I’ve had a long day at work, I am reassured that everything will be ok + you always find a way to make me laugh, so it’s only fair to say that you’re my daily reassurance! Thank you for your endless kisses and for always whispering in my ear how much you love me every morning. Thank you for always checking-up on me and on my daily goals (you truly are my #1 supporter)! Thank you for always satisfying my Slurpee cravings, even though you think it’s not 100% healthy 🤣. Thank you for always asking me to dance with you, even if it’s in our living room. The list could go on and on and we could be here all day, but I do want to thank you for the most important part; for loving me unconditionally! I found love in you and I promise you that no other love will ever do, my heart will forever be yours lover. You’ve accepted me with all of my flaws and virtues, and with that I’ve learned to love myself even more. You love me for who I am, and you’ve never asked me to change that. Thank you for your acceptance and for always rooting for me to continue being myself!
This past year has been one for the books! Even though we’ve been together for about 9 years now, every year with you gets better and better every single time. But of course, this was our 1st year married, so it’s been even more special for the both of us! We’ve both grown, accomplished & learned so much together! We’ve motivated one another through the good and the bad, we’ve been inclusive to one another in any decision making; so thank you for that. Plus, we even adopted our precious little Scoobs! BEST DECISION EVER!! But of course he’s been a handful, but a handful that has been totally worth it! So I guess, thanks for being such a great father to our little Scoobs, he sure does appreciate it lol 🐶 !
So I guess this is a letter to thank you for being such a wonderful man, but I also wanted to express exactly how much I love you too! And the answer to that is very simple, I love you because of who you are & for all the reasons I just listed on this letter. Our hearts have intertwined into a perfect harmony since the beginning, because of the love we both have for one another. I will forever & always love you Mr. Lizano!💛 I promise to continue walking this life with you as your wife, best friend, helping mate and your lover. I promise to continue encouraging you. I promise to never stop holding your hand. I promise to always cook you a badass meal & always prepare your lunch for the next day! I promise to continue standing by your side while you face the world. I promise to always join your laughter with my own, and when you can’t look on the bright side, I will sit with you in the dark. I promise to continue growing alongside you. I promise to continue loving, respecting, protecting and trusting you! For I know that together we will. forever build a life far better than either of us could imagine alone. Cheers to us and to a lifetime together!

Anyone that has gone through wedding planning knows that ordering bridesmaid dresses could be a handful, which is why I believe that it’s something that should be done with time. Having to deal with such things as specific styles, colors and sizes could take up to 16 weeks to custom make. So the sooner you can start hunting for the perfect dresses for your Bride Tribe the better!
When it comes time to selecting the bridesmaids dress, most brides would prefer to select a specific dress for their bridesmaids, without considering their own ideas. But then there are those brides who would like some sort of input from their bridesmaids, which is where I fall in. I guess it’s all about the preference, but I’m the type of bride who wants to make sure that her bridesmaids feel just as beautiful & comfortable as I would on my special day. That is why I felt that it was very important for me to have them all give me their input when we went hunting for their dresses. At the end of the day it is one’s own wedding but regardless this will be a dress that they’ll be spending a good amount of money on & I would really love it if they could get something that they absolutely love & could potentially wear again.
So this past Sunday all my bridesmaids were able to get together and look for the perfect dress that would look perfect on all of them. As soon as we walked into David’s Bridal, our consultant advised us to look around their store and select whatever they wanted to try on. I started with the basics by selecting some styles that I personally loved and also allowing them to select some that they liked as well, along with the specific color that I wanted them to wear. You’d think that most brides would think the process of selecting a dress with so many opinions would be difficult, but in reality it made the whole process so much easier for me. So much so that in less than 10 minutes we had decided among 10 different dresses to choose from & I thought to myself “let’s get this started”.
I had my bridesmaids each wear a different dress so we could use up our time wisely and I kid you not, on the first try I knew we had found the one dress that would look perfect on all of them. I asked them all to change into that same dress so we could see how they looked and just as I imagined they looked amazing. My Bride Tribe was able to say YES TO THE DRESS and I was one happy bride because not only did our plan work accordingly, but I knew that they were all just as happy as I was. That to me is really important because even though it’s the bride’s special day, her Bride Tribes opinion should be important too. Especially considering that they are the ones wearing the dress and considering all that is to happen on that day you’d want them to be that much more comfortable & happier. Happy bridesmaids make a much happier bride and this day doesn’t come around too often so better make it the happiest day for all as possible.
