Taylor Swift’s Moving Maid Of Honor Speech At Her BFF’s Wedding

Have Tissues Handy! We knew Taylor Swift was
recently the maid of honor at her best friend

In the video, which Britany posted on Sunday, Feb. 28, you can see every aspect of the wedding, ranging from the rehearsal dinner to the music-filled reception. Ms. Swift is featured throughout — at one point, she’s even seen dancing with family members — but she’s not the star. That role went to the bride and groom, who seem madly in love.

5 Ways To Celebrate Your Sweetheart on Valentine’s Day

With the average engagement being 12 to 14 months, you may only get to celebrate one or two Valentine’s Days as fiance and fiancee. Why not take advantage of the chance to celebrate the most romantic day of the year as an engaged couple? If there’s any day you should take off from the nitty-gritty details of linens and boutonnieres, this is it.

1. Celebrate like the day you got engaged.

Okay, he doesn’t have to get down on one knee again, but you could return to the restaurant, park bench or mountaintop where the proposal happened and pop some champagne for old times’ sake.

2. Start a new Valentine’s Day tradition.

So maybe while you were dating you always went to the movies on Valentine’s Day, or you skipped the 14th and had a romantic dinner together the day after. If you’re feeling like your Valentine’s Day plans are stuck in a rut, this is your chance to start something new that you can carry into your marriage.

3. Get pampered together.

It seems obvious, but taking time to relax is now more important than ever. Throw in a couple of facials or a relaxing couple’s massage, and you can count it as crossing one beauty regimen off your long to-do list.

4. Skip it and celebrate Galentine’s Day instead.

You’re going to have a lifetime of Valentine’s Days ahead, and your wedding is going to be the ultimate lovefest. A great alternative is to celebrate with your ladies (or even have your bachelorette party!) on Cupid’s day. The great part is there’s a ton of events going on that day, and there’s no rule that says your date—or dates—can’t be your bridesmaids!

5. Record your love story.

Grab your fiance and hit the town, visiting places from your love story (like your first-date location and the site of where you first said “I love you”). It’s a sentimental touch, and you can also take a video to play at your engagement party, rehearsal dinner or even the wedding!
