- Wedding: October 2011
Ok Ladies, it’s time. I got our pro photos in the mail last night and I think I need to do my recaps. Get ready for it! (These photos are mostly black and white, but they do get colorful I swear!)
The day started off perfectly. I won’t up early. My mom made me and the girls my favourite breakfast with Mimosa’s.
The girls and I headed off to the Salon to get ready! We all had our hair and make up done.
Uh, the least flattering photo of me ever. No-Makeup. I’m sorry.
Getting my hair did. My stylist is SUCH a slacker 😉
2/3 bridesmaids. My Maid/Matron of Honor on the left and a bridesmaid on the right.
My Mother in Law got me these napkins.
My stylist is a friend of the family. I love her so much. She’s also very talented! She’s done hair for the Oscars & the Emmy’s.
After an amazing morning we hop into my car, I but the belt under my armpit so as not to F-up my awesome hair, and we need to drop off my third bridesmaid’s (not pictured, more on that later) over night stuff (she lives 2 minutes from the salon). So we start driving and all of a sudden a cop is following us. I turn down her street and he turns his lights on. (Let me just say that I have NEVER been pulled over before). I pull over. I am obviously the chillest, calm bride ever. Keeping it real. The officer comes up to my window and says “I’m pulling you over today because you’re wearing your seat belt incorrectly.”. I start crying. Looking up to the ceiling so my make up doesn’t run. Waving my hands at my face to dry any escaping tears. The officer asks for my ID & reg. I make my maid of honor give it to him. He looks at me and says “you know people get pulled over all the time right?” and I reply in the whiniest/cryiest voice you can imagine “I HAVE NEVER BEEN PULLED OVER AND I’M GETTING MARRIED TODAY.” He says “you’re getting married ‘today?'”, my response “MY HAIR AND MAKEUP WOULDN’T LOOK LIKE THIS IF I WASN’T GETTING MARRIED TODAY!”. He stares at me, slowly hands me back my info and says “The DJ didn’t show up to my wedding so … good luck” and walked away.
I have a mini heart attack but calm down. We drop off her stuff, head to the hotel. Now, not many people have cars like mine anymore. My car has dummy locks, made so you don’t lock your keys in your car. Anyone with a car newer than 20 years old probably doesn’t remember/know how to use dummy locks. I park and tell my girls to MAKE SURE their doors are locked. Yes, Yes, Yes, Mine? Yes. All the doors get locked and shut and then I realize that my keys are still in the car and those keys are still in the ignition, and the ignition is still ON. My bridesmaids were awesome and they dealt with that while I went and checked into the hotel.
One of the groomsmen came up to give me a little blue box from my very soon to be husband!
At that point, I thought the day was going to be a disaster. Next up: Sneak Peek & Ceremony!
