Real Bride Nicole Fill: Experiencing Weddings In Every Aspect and How She Handled It

Real Bride Nicole Fill: Experiencing Weddings In Every Aspect and How She Handled It

Real Bride Nicole Fill shares her experience being in multiple weddings (including as my Matron of Honor!). We cover a lot of topics: planning her wedding, being a bridesmaid, making a destination wedding a family vacation, giving a toast, having her children in a bridal party, and how she handled being a part of more than one wedding in less than a year.

Get to know Nicole:

Nicole is a born and raised Clevelander. She met her husband when they both worked at Target in 2000. They dated long distance through college and got married in 2007. She's had the honor of being in 7 weddings – flower girl once, bridesmaid 4 times, maid of honor once and matron of honor once. She's also done readings in a few weddings, including a really fun Harry Potter themed one at a friend's wedding in October 2020. Another fun way she's had a chance to be involved with weddings is by baking! Nicole runs a home bakery business making cakeballs and cakepops, called Cakelet Candies. She's made cakeball platters and cakepop displays for several weddings and bridal showers over the last several years, always having so much fun designing unique desserts for the bride and groom's special day.
