- Wedding: October 2011
It was the best weekend ever! These women (and my bro) got together and made this party like a dream. My best friend made all of mine and FIs favortie foods. One of my maids brought tons of beer, and let us keep the ice chest… HA! Then other maid brough some amazing food, that is now my favortie foods and the most thoughtful gifts ever….. then my Maid/Matron of Honor rented some crystal wine glasses, made amazing punch, made a mini bar, and made some awesome food, also hosted the party, as well as my brother/best man. I had an aunt and uncle come that I haven’t seen in a while, so it was very special to me. Also, all of the friends that were invited showed up. I almost cried. Then my wedding planner/ old HS acquaintance showed up with the cake. Let me tell you guys the back story. I had picked the grooms cake and designed it and I was so excited to get it for my man. Then we found out our hotels that we blocked off were double than we thought they were. So we ended up having to cover some of the hotel room costs. So the grooms cake had to go bye bye, but my bridesmaids and Maid/Matron of Honor all knew of what I had planned to do. So when I told em it was a no go…. Apparetnly they went into action and made a point not to bring it back up to me. Well, the wedding planner comes. Me and Fiance are put into the bathroom to close our eyes….we come out….. open our eyes and see this:
Its the grooms cake!!! It is the quad where he went to school at the Citadel (the red and white checker) and the top is a replication on his College ring!! Can you believe them!!??? And SHE (the wedding planner) made it!!! And btw, it was a stock the bar party, so everyone brough us alcohol. It was the sweetest, most thoughtful thing I’ve ever experience. I kept tearing up all night, as did Fiance…. and he had no idea of anything about the cake. So it was a complete utter surprise to him. Everyone stayed for so long and it made me feel so special. The party started at 5:00 and the last guest left at 2:00am….I KNOW!!!! And on top of that, one of my maids is a photographer, so we had an engagement sitting before the party, and all during the party she was taking pics!! Man, I’m on cloud nine. Sorry this is all over the place, I’m just very happy and overwhelmed with emotions!!
