~~DISH0814: Wedding Recap-Part 1~~
I'm back and married. I'm breaking the recap up into parts because it's so long. I've also put the whole thing in my bio.
Let me start with the most important part of this recap - We're married!!!
Note to future brides: Doing all of My DIYs the week before almost killed me. I got no sleep. I barely ate. I ignored everyone. I was super stressed. Time was my enemy. I so did not estimate well on how long things take. My programs alone took almost 1 whole day.
But was it all worth? Heck Yea, it was!!! Everything turned out awesome!!! I wouldn't change a thing.
Day of Rehearsal
The venue allowed me to bring everything early. So happy. FI, my daughter Alex and I packed everything up. FI went to check into his hotel room. Alex and I took all to the venue. Unloaded. Came back to the house. Changed clothes. Then headed back to the venue for rehearsal.
DH had ONE JOB!!!!! The officiant asked us to bring the marriage license to the rehearsal so that he could make sure everything was in order. Of course, DH forgot the license in his hotel room. UGH!!!
Rehearsal went well. Afterwards, my sister, my niece, my daughter and I stayed to decorate. The venue was gonna kick us out at 7:00pm so that was my deadline. Also after I was finally going to get my nails done. I was afraid to get them done too early in the week because I was afraid I would mess them up. But I also knew I wasn't going to have any time on my wedding day to get them done. Again, decorating took wayyyyyy longer than I planned. My siste r kept getting mad at me because she would ask me what I wanted her to do, but I was so frazzled I couldn't explain it the way I wanted. I kept saying "MY VISION IS IN MY HEAD" "IT'S IN MY HEAD!!". She's like "Well get it outta yo damn head." It was funny after awhile. 7:00pm came and went. I pleaded with security to let us stay without charging us and they did. But we finally had to call it a night at 9:00pm. We got a lot done, but still had a to n to do. I had someone coming in the next day to finish, I just didn't trust her to do it correctly.
It was too late to get my nails done. I didn't know what I was going to do about it. Alex and I finally checked into the hotel. FI was partying in his. I was folding napkins. MY LAST PROJECT!!! After the napkins, I was able to finally relax. I decided to soak in the tub. I'm in the tub and I hear a knock at the door. Alex answers and it's hotel maintenance saying my bath water is leaking into to room below. Great. So much for my relaxing evening. They come in and fixed it. After, I just went to bed.
