Selena Gomez is in the running for bridesmaid of the year. Over the weekend, the singer served as the maid of honor at her cousin Priscilla DeLeon’s wedding to Jay Cosme in her home state of Texas. Gomez stunned in a black, off-the-shoulder gown with a thigh-high slit as she stood beside her cousin, but it was her heartfelt maid of honor speech that truly caught everyone’s attention.

In a video captured from the reception, Gomez can be heard giving a sweet toast to the newlyweds. “You taught me to be strong through anything, no matter what happens,” she said. “I pray for you guys all the time. You’re beautiful. I love you.”

Her touching speech marked the culmination of her maid of honor duties. Earlier this month, Gomez threw a bachelorette party for her cousin in Punta Mita, Mexico. The weekend, which included beach time, shopping, and ATV riding, was a “dream” for DeLeon. “

Gomez also played another huge role in DeLeon’s nuptials: The former Disney Channel actress helped the bride design her dream dress and Gomez purchased it for her. DeLeon wrote at the time: “When your maid of honor makes your dream dress a reality and surprises you with it!”

Gomez has certainly been in celebration mode this year, because DeLeon’s wedding wasn’t the first time she nailed her bridal duties. In January 2019,  she attended a bridal shower for her longtime friend, Courtney Barry, before they traveled to Cabo for her bachelorette party. Weeks later in February, she attended Barry’s wedding in a stunning black embellished gown.

The Knot had the exclusive photos from Barry’s nuptials. “Our best friends married us because Sam and I knew we’d love how they articulated the service,” the bride previously shared with us. “We just wanted our dinner to feel relaxed, intimate, fun, and meaningful. We wanted it to feel like family and for everything to point to the celebration of finding love.
