The day went off (almost) without a hitch! Everyone, but the Reverand showed up on time, we had plenty of time for pictures, the weather was beautiful and we only had a few no-shows! The reception was so much fun, the dance floor was jumpin' all night! My DJ did an awesome job, the bartenders and the photog were partying with us by the end of the night! It was better than I ever imagined and I'm so thankful for my friends and family that were there to celebrate with us!
My mom took a TON of pics during the rehearsal dinner and wedding day. I'll post some of my favorites here! As soon as I get the Pros I'll post them too!
Getting ready/First Look:
So my combo bachelor/bachelorette party was this past Saturday (8/27). We had such a good time! We went to a place called the Coliseum. Its an arcade upstairs, with a restaurant, bar, and bowling alley downstairs. We had our own room, with food provided and our own bartender.We had so much fun and I'm super happy that I got to do this with my FH and all of our friends/family! Now, for some pics!!
Triton Black Tungsten Carbide Band for him
Got this "thank you" parasol from my SIL, Mandy (as4968). She forgot to use it...hopefully I won't do the same lol.
And here's some inspiration pics for how I want to use it:
(got all of these images from google)
For FI and his guys, we're thinking plain black and white, slim fit suits. Maybe something like this:
I'm not doing any kind of boutonniere or adding a colored tie/vest. I think this will look really nice and we won't have the hassle of trying to match the colors to my girls.
I actually snagged this from ChancesAre's bio. She put together such a great list...I just tweeked it a little bit to fit my needs :) (thanks for being awesome Chances!)
