After a night of very little sleep, my Maid of Honor and I headed to the party suite to meet the rest of the girls. There was a lot of us in the room: my three bridesmaids, my Mother-in-law, and my two neices.
While we were getting ready, we watched Love, Actually and Steel Magnolias.
Before I knew it, both Sonia and Livia were ready to start on our hair and make-up. While hanging around, I had the girls sign the guest book. It’s a great idea to have your bridal party sign it before the wedding so that they have the time to write something meaningful.
There was a knock on the door, and it was the bellhop delivering flowers from my soon-to-be husband. The entire room erupted in “ohh’s”
After a tasty lunch of Subway, it was my turn to get pretty. Sonia and Livia do amazing work.
I’m the sort of girl that loves to get her make-up and her done. But I was ready to go! I’m putting on the beautiful diamond earrings that my Maid of Honor bought me(us) as our wedding present.
Then, we started to run late. I act terrible when I am running late; I get totally stressed out. It’s quite obvious in the pictures. It felt like it took an hour to get that dress on me! My bridesmaids hooked, zipped, and buttoned.
Finally, I grabbed my bouquet. The bouquet was wrapped in Denton’s family hankerchief and tied with my initial brooch (a gift a few years ago from my bridesmaid, Shena).
Since Denton and I were meeting privately, the girls had to be ready about ten minutes after me. In this photo, my Maid of Honor is being helped by my Mother-in-law while her daughter is talking to my nieces.
No shoes! Well, for a bit anyway. Since the girls were wearing 3″ heels, I told them not to put them on until they were walking out the door. I think they they were happy to follow my advice as their feet were killing them later!
