Selena Gomez spent one of her final days being 26 celebrating the marriage of her cousin and close friend Priscilla DeLeon. Gomez was in Dallas last night, where she served as maid of honor during DeLeon’s wedding to her now-husband Jay Cosme. Gomez wore a gorgeous off-the-shoulder black gown for the wedding and playfully posed in photos taken by family and guests at the ceremony:
Gomez was also recorded giving a speech to her cousin and her new husband during the reception. “You taught me to be strong,” she told DeLeon at one point, going on to praise DeLeon and Cosme. She finished her speech by telling DeLeon, “I love you,” and giving her cousin a hug.
Gomez has been a big part of DeLeon’s wedding. She bought her cousin her dream wedding dress, DeLeon revealed back in December 2017.
Gomez also threw her cousin’s bachelorette party early this month. Gomez took DeLeon and her friends on vacation to Four Seasons in Punta Mita, Mexico. DeLeon shared some shots from the trip, including one of her and Gomez together. “I wouldn’t want anyone else standing next to me at the alter (even the two pregnant ones that couldn’t attend),” she wrote alongside a shot of her and Gomez on the beach. “My maid of honor really showed out this weekend and threw me the bachelorette party of my dreams. I am forever grateful.”
Before her wedding, DeLeon shared one last photo from her bachelorette weekend with Gomez and their whole group posing in matching black bathing suits. “Marriage license day. So it’s only right to post a bachelorette picture since I’m almost a married woman!” she wrote on July 8.
