~~DISH0814:Wedding Recap-Part 2~~

Part 1 is here: http://www.projectwedding.com/post/list/dish0814-wedding-recap-part-1


GETTING READY


My plan was to get my hair curled and pinned (my hairdresser prepped my hair earlier in the week), stop by my house to pick up the petals and loose flowers I ordered from Fiftyflowers, pick up the flower arrangements from the florist and deliver them to the venue.  Make it back to the hotel by 1:00pm. 


While I was gone, Alex went to find a place to get her nails done.  My hair appt was at 10:00am.  My hairdresser was 10 minutes late and at that point I realized I forgot to wear my DIY Bride tank.  BOO!!  It was just 10 minutes, but again, time was my enemy.  I was done by 11:00.  I headed to my house then the florist.  There was so much traffic.  I finally get there and I loved my centerpieces, but hated all the bouquets.  They just didn't feel lush enough.  They felt and looked so cheap.  Plus they put green berry things in my bouquet.  It reminded me of Christmas.  And they didn't put the rhinestone bands around the holder.  I didn't have time for them to fix it.  I had to go.


I make it to the venue.  Deliver the flowers.  Head back to the hotel.  As I'm driving back to the hotel behind schedule, Alex calls and tells me that she arranged for one of the nail girls to come to my room to do my nails while I'm getting my make up done!!!  Whoo hoot!!!  Gotta love her!!!!


By the time I get back to the hotel, it's 1:30pm.  The MUA is already working on Alex and is scheduled to start on me at 2:00pm.  That's also the time the Photographer and Videographer are scheduled to arrive.  My phone is ringing every two seconds.  I'm trying to lay everything out, so that the phographer can take pics.  I wanted to take another shower so I could be at my freshest, but I ran out of time.  I change into my DIY Bride tank and I notice that a coup le of the letters fell off.  It now says "BRI".  UGH!!!   Everyone arrives at 2:00pm, on schedule (Photographer, Videographer, my sister, my niece, the flower girl).  The MUA and nail lady both start working on me.  I can sort of relax.  I'm making fun of the videographer.  The photographer is taking pics of the details. The MUA takes the full hour (probably because of my lack of sleep she has to work extra hard:-)).  My nails weren't the color I had in mind, but it worked.  However, as soon as my fingernails were done and the girl was out the door, I messed them up.  Oy!!!  Oh well, I just sort of hid them in pics.


After my make up was done, I started getting dressed.  My sister and niece had to help me get all the pins out my hair.  I forgot to change into by pretty underwear.  My dress wasn't fitting as well as I wanted it to because in the two days since I got it fitted, I lost weight.  And I ended up getting make up on it.  Dang it!!!  Even with all that I still looked fabulous!!!


We went to take pics around the hotel, but the hotel people said since we didn't have a permit, we couldn't take anymore.  BOOO HOTEL!!!!  So we just went back to the room. 


The ceremony was scheduled to start at 5:00pm so we left at 4:15pm.


My sister drove me, Alex and my photographer to the venue.  We were all being very goofy.  My sister put in a CD she burned of songs FI picked out for me to listen to.  It was a really sweet touch.  We had to stop and get gas.  We should have gotten a picture of me pumping gas in my dress.  Although my sister was the one pumping.


We arrive at the venue and we see guests still arriving.  So I duck down and we park somewhere.  We wait a few minutes before I get out of the car.  I head up the elevators and everyone is seated.  It's time to start.
