♥♥ SHENANIGANS' WEDDING RECAP ♥♥


I guess it's now my time to do my wedding recap. I tried to do it during the week. Twice actually. But DH would get mad & throw a fit like a kid whose candy was taken from him, so I had to stop & entertain him. Ahh... the perils of being on a honeymoon & being married. lol.


So I'll start with the day before recap. You can find that here


After I was done Pdubbing on the morning of the wedding, I did exactly as I said I was going to do. I jumped on the beds & woke up each and every BM. I'm not big on sleeping in & I'll be damned if I was going to let my BMs get any beauty sleep. I was paying the MUA good money to accent their already stunning beauty and sleep is for the weak. ((; It was my wedding day & I was going to do what I wanted & what I wanted to do was irritate them. [insert evil cackle laugh.] I left the hotel & went to get bagels, fruit, & stuff for mimosas while all my BMs started the shower rotations. 7 girls + 1 bathroom = shower chaos & no toilet paper or Kleenex. Haha. 


The MUA arrived at 9 am & started to set up her beautification products. The hairstylists showed around 9:30am & turned on their hair magic stuff. MY girls were becoming my very own little human dolls right before my very eyes!! All I wanted to do at that point was sit them around a table & have a tea party like I used to do with my dolls. My BMs didn't think that was too funny, nor did they want to participate in my idea. They poured more mimosas instead. My kinda girls!


Around 10am I took my bestie & my baby sis with me & we proceeded to walk to the venue to unload all the decor. Much to my disappointed all the doors we tried to open were locked. I finally found the catering manager & asked her to open the room so we could unload. She told me I couldn't put my stuff in the room because there was a rehearsal going on in it. EXCUSE ME?! Are you freakin' serious?? A rehearsal in my reception rooms on the day of my wedding? This is a joke, right?? When's Ashton going to pop out from behind some closed door & tell me I'm being punked?? Yeah, that didn't happen. She was serious. So we unloaded everything into the hallway & I told her I'd be back at 1:30pm & that my room better be open so I could start to set up my cake/ cupcakes. 


My mom showed around 1:30pm with the cake & cupcakes & with the help of my mom, my sis, one of me BMs, & my amazing coordinator, we set everything up for the cake & cupcake tables. The photogs shot a lot of pics of me setting up my own cake & were blown away that my mom & I did it all ourselves. They kept saying "I've never seen a bride do this much for her own wedding, let alone ON her wedding day!" It was very rewarding & humbling to hear that. I was finally starting to be proud of my hard work.


As soon as the cake/ cupcakes were done, I ran back to the room to start my beautification. MIL showed around 3pm & said that the boys had arrived & that FIL was there too. I asked her to bring FIL to my room so I could meet him prior to becoming his DIL. He was the sweetest, most Texan man I'd ever met. All my BMs fell in love with his accent. He hung around for a few, chatted with us girls, & then left to go get ready. It was very surreal at that point. It was starting to set in that it was actually MY WEDDING. 


Makeup ran longer than expected because 1/2 way through I realized I needed to pluck my eyebrows. Just a little something I forgot to do during the madness. Who thinks about that stuff when there's a cake to decorate & cupcakes to set up? Not this girl, obviously. DH was about to be greeted by Chewbaca. Poor, poor, DH. After the eyebrow plucking went down, we grabbed our dresses & headed over to the venue in our robes & flip flops. I still wasn't feeling like a bride. I was so calm it wasn't even funny. Everyone kept asking "why aren't you freaking out? what's wrong with you?!" I guess they thought I had some sort of mental disorder because I was so laid back. But in my mind, I knew why I was so calm. It was because I was about to marry my best friend. Nothing has/had ever felt more right in my life.


My oh-so-on-top-of-her-ish coordinator had everything lined & everyone in their places exactly on schedule. The ceremony was a bit of a blur. It was hot. There was no mic, so we were practically screaming our vows at each other. What a way to start a marriage. Already raising our voices. I don't think anyone heard them, which sucked because mine were not on hysterical, they were clearly better than his. ((; Haha. We were soon pronounced, we kissed, everyone cheered, & it was over just like that. We took fam pics, very few bridal party shots because I was getting irritated with BIL & his stupid rocker gang signs he continued to do, then some husband & wifey shots, & then it was time to be announced into the reception.


Then it started. THE DRAMA! The Bestman, also known as DH's POS 1/2 brother, staggered out of the reception room, spilling beer everywhere & acting like a jackass. I snatched the beer our of his hand so fast, his drunk ass didn't even realize it was gone. I tore him a new a-hole & told him he was cut off for the rest of the night. DH said to him "don't f*** this up for us!" To which POS BIL replied "F*** you guys!" & stormed out. I immediately called the venue's security & had him kicked out, apparently not before he threw some trashcans & knocked over some cocktail tables. They stuck him in a taxi & he was on his way home before he could blink an eye. Luckily, the only people who witnessed the disaster was the bridal party.


We weren't about to let that ruin our night though. We stuck 2 BMs with 1 GMs & were right on our way into the reception room. I did forget to bustle my dress due to the POS BIL drama & had to pick up the train during the 1st dance. People were laughing. I was almost crying because I was laughing so hard. My bustle tore sometime during the night. One of wife's of a fireman tied my dress in a knot near the end of the night. It was pretty funny. My dad's speech was incredible. He called me a SERIF. Everyone said how beautiful it was. We danced. We mingled. There was a HUGE line at the cupcake bar. I presented my bouquet to my bestie & made everyone cry. I told them how she had survived cancer twice and was only 26 & everyone cheered & clapped for her. We danced more. I managed to convince 15 ladies to take home the centerpieces. And then I ended the night with the worst migraine EVER. We went to bed around 1am & I woke up sick to my stomach at 6:30am because of the migraine. I almost threw up when we were boarding the plane because of it. Great way to start the honeymoon, but whatever....


I'M FREAKIN' MARRIED!!! ((:


 


And here are some non-pro teaser to hold ya'll over until I can stalk more guests for pics.

Yup. That's me, sitting on the stage, eating cake, while all the guests are dancing. I was hungry. Fat kids LOVE cake. Especially this fat kid! ((:
