That sounds like it’s going to be a blast!

We didn’t do too much. After the rehearsal dinner everyone went home. I went over my friends house and two of my BMs came too. So it was pretty chill.

Are you having a rehearsal dinner? Getting a manicure sounds fun..but would you have enough time? The day/night before I was sooo busy with everything.

what we plan to do after rehearsal is hire a cartoonist to come in..shes pretty awesome and we are going to have her do carcitures of the whole bridal party- with us and with thier spouses!

I also bought the girls “santas lil helpers” margarita mixes for their bridesmaids bags..we will be having very few drinks ( we are not big drinkers )and just resting!

4 out of my 5 bridesmaids are from out of state, so Mr. Bing is staying at our apt. by himself (or maybe with a groomsman or two?) and I have a larger Suite at our hotel downtown.  I’ve invited the girls to have a slumber party (not too late!) with me- the room has a pullout couch and we could get cots if we need to.  I also would have a king bed that I’m thinking about maybe sharing. πŸ™‚ 

The rehearsal dinner will go til about 9pm, so I imagine we’ll watch a Will Ferrell classic and sit around goofing off for a bit- (or we might make their bouquets or aisle flower things), and then into bed for me!

Our Rehearsal is at 5pm with dinner to follow. I was told my Bachelorette Party will be after that as two of my daughters will be coming in from out of town, and one of them will not be there until that day. It won’t be too crazy as I will not be drinking much, one of my daughters is only 20 and my other daughter doesn’t drink at all. I am having a suite at the hotel for us girls with my Maid/Matron of Honor and one of my bridesmaids, then we can get ready in the room as well the next day. After the wedding the room will belong to myself and my hubs.

The entire wedding party is staying in cabins on our venue’s ground (Which is a sugar shack in a maple forest), boys in one cabin, girls in the other. πŸ™‚ So, we’re having an awesome sleepover!!

I’m pretty sure my girls will be chilling with me in the bridal suite. In our venue contract we have it booked for the night before the wedding, and (of course) the night of.. but, we may have to book a few extra rooms, as well. I don’t know how 7 of us (8 including DD) will all fit in.. LOL! Besdies that, if they’re all with me, it’ll probably be a sleepless night.

This sounds fantastic!  I actually opted to spend the night by myself the night before the wedding. Probably wasn’t the best choice, because I didn’t sleep one bit! πŸ˜›  But, my Maid/Matron of Honor and I went and got mani/pedis the evening before. πŸ™‚ I saw them all the next morning and it was fine!

I am actually having our rehearsal dinner two days before the wedding. We are doing this so we can all go out after without worrying about our wedding being the next day πŸ™‚ 

So, the day before we will get nails done and spend the night in the bridal suite watching funny bridal movies πŸ™‚

We’ll  I’ll get my nails and toes done with my Maid/Matron of Honor then head to a decorate the venue party quick rehearsal and order pizza with everyone then finish up something wedding related I’m sure (super procrastinator here) then head back home- we all live an hour or 2 from the venue and sleep.
