YIELA's Wedding RECAP! Part 1
I took off 2 days before the wedding and thank goodness I did bc I had so much to do. I wrapped up work early on Tuesday and ran to Ikea to buy another UNG Frame bc one of the two I previously bought, had broken. :( I desperately needed a new one for my Photobooth and Happily Ever After sign! I was so pissed bc that added to my 101 things to do and was a waste of $ but I got over it. While I was there shopping around, I received a phone call from one of my BMs who's pregnant saying she didnt fit in her dress! She had just tried it on the week before and it was fine. After a few minutes of being in shock. I wasn't mad, bc I had already had a feeling she wouldn't fit in it and I really didn't want her to be uncomfy all day and hate me later for it. She has a growing baby inside her, and its only natural for something like that to happen. My wedding will still go on and there was really nothing I could've done to fix the situation. She had already added 2 inches of fabric to the dress and I wasn't going to be able to do much 2 DAYS before the wedding. From that moment on, I decided I wasn't sweating the small stuff! :)
Wednesday came around and to be honest with you it was all a blur! I can't remember WTH I did that day?! LOL!
Thursday my FI and I decided to run to the venue and drop off ALL of our props for the BIG day but just when I thought we were done, we had forgotten a collage we had done for the entrance of the reception. Ugh! I thought I was so ready and organized but with the craziness we BOTH forgot! So I drove back to the venue myself with the collage, while my FI went to get a haircut. After I left the venue, I myself needed to go to the hair salon to straighten my crazy a$$ curly hair, so it would be easier for my hair stylist to manage and style on the BIG day (don't men have it so easy)! After the salon, I ran to my FIs sisters (my FSIL) so she can do my gel mani/ reg pedi I didn't leave her apt until 12am, and she was going to have to get up early the next day to do my makeup. I felt so bad but she understood. Now, mind you I still had to run home and pack a bag for the night of the wedding bc my FI and I were staying at a hotel the night of. If I didnt have to make 2 stops at the venue all would've gone accordingly but of course that didnt happen! Grrr!
So I met my other FSIL (brother's FI) at my apt. We were supposed to have a sleep over but that didn't happen bc she fell asleep snoring beside me and I was wide awake until about 3am bc I was so anxious and nervous about the BIG day. Funny thing, my FI stood at the hotel by himself that night and he couldnt sleep either. We ended up texting each other all night about the BIG day, until one of fell asleep I can't remember! LOL!
FRIDAY, SEPT 14th- THE WEDDING DAY! :)
I wake up before the alarm rings at 7am, run into the shower, shave and throw on my clothes. My FSIL does the same and we're out the door in an hour. We grabbed some Dunkin Donuts on the way bc I knew I wasn't going to eat until I got the venue. Here are some pics of me getting trasnformed! My FSIL is the best!
While we were there, all of my BMs and even the hairstylist asked if I was OK, bc I was so quiet, calm and reserved but I was actually really was OK. I was just trying to take this whole day in and enjoy it! :)
Part 2 coming soon!
