Our day was great there were few glitches but overall it was amazing and I'm happily married to the man of my dreams. The week leading up to the wedding was crazy, hectic, and stressful. As many of you know we had a financial crisis 5 days before the wedding that caused my account to overdraw by over $600 here's the link...http://www.projectwedding.com/post/list/5-days-away-and-i-can-t-pay-for-my-wedding. Thanks to my father everything came together and he helped us out tremendously from paying for my linens to giving us extra money to paying for a stting up the main course for the rd while my mother graciously opened her home to 40 people. My sister in her usual fashion didn't have her bm dress until the night before the wedding when my mom had to go buy it for her ugh...I told my mom not to worry about it she just wouldn't be in it my mother got upset with me. Oh well, what are you gong to do my sister is 29 more than capable of taking care of herself.
The morning of the wedding was great after staying up until 2:30 and finishing last minute DIY's with my moh and one of my bm's we went to sleep and woke the next morning at 7:00 when my amazing friend Johnna came to start our hair. I thank God for her since we could not afford a hairdresser when my account got screwed up and honestly she did better than the two pros I went to did. The morning was very relaxed we enjoyed a delicious continental breakfast at the venue then headed back up to the room to begin getting ready...btw ladies I DO NOT reccommend eggs the morning of not so good on the stomach. Anyways...Johnna started on my hair first then once she finished moved onto my MOH's. By then DH was already there getting pics taken and my moh and I accidently stumbled upon them however I blocked my view of him so I wouldn't see him until the first look. At 10:00 the photog came to our room to take getting ready shots and that's when things got hectic. In her usual fashion my sister showed up and rocked the boat we went from relaxed to frazzled very quickly. My mother was supposed to meet us at the venue at 9:30 to get ready with us but becaus of my sister and her "needs" (more like demands) my poor mother showed up late only to have to leave again when AF came for my sister. By the time she got back from the store it was time for our first look so it was literally a hi and bye situation. As I was waiting to see my dh my cousin came to let me know that my mom was upset she hadn't gotten to see me or help me get dressed so I requsted a few minutes before the ceremony with my mom, photog, and I so we could get a few pro pics togther. She seemd to feel better about that but was still upset that once again my sister interfered with her plans.
After a disappointing makeup trial I decided to do it myself. It's still a work in progress but I already like it better than what the "artist" did. I'm going to darken the eye up a little a get a lighter lipcolor I had no clue the color would be as deep as it is.
I like it but I want something a little simpler than what she gave me. Maybe something more like this...
or minus the tiara
I am so blessed to have such amazing women in my life and they proved that to me once again for my bridal shower. My MOH and Aunt went above and beyond anything I could have ever expected. The food was delicious, company was wonderful, and as my sister said "I made out like a bandit."
