Recap: Getting Ready

Monday, November 28, 2011

So there may be such a thing as being too relaxed on your wedding day...yes, that was me. I was so busy watching all my girls get prettied up and sneaking into the ballroom to check the status of the decor that I lost track of the time! I was so unconcerned about my own hair and makeup that I ended up getting both done last! Oops! My hair and makeup artists had to rush so we could get to picture taking on time. I nearly gave our photographer a heart attack, Tina I'm so sorry! All that being said, everything worked out and I wasn't worried at all. Looking back, and knowing my own strict and somewhat anal personality, I'm shocked that the time crunch didn't bother me. I think I was just so happy and so excited that literally nothing could get me down. The day was absolutely perfect!

While I was getting my makeup done...

My lovely bridesmaid was putting the final touches on our dresses!

 Mom zipped me up...

Any my oh so attentive Maid of Honor helped me into my 5" heels!

Oh how I love those heels...

The girls posed in their cute plum pretty sugar pajama pants...

before stepping into their freshly steamed dresses.

When we were all ready, we headed out to the garden for some sweet pics!

Those pictures as well as our "first look" shots are coming soon!


  1. Those shoes are crazy fabulous! I don't think I could've walked.

    I love the tags on the bridesmaids' dress hangers.

  2. Hey I just found your blog and this is so pretty. I need shoes like yours!!! my fiance is way taller than me so no heel is too big! Also love the pyjamas for your bridesmaids - sweet idea :)

  3. i just noticed- you and i have the same headband!! don't you just LOVE the way it sparkles?

  4. Thank you girls! Yes, I loved the sparkles in my headband! It stayed really secure all day/night as well!
