Wedding Wednesday- Getting Ready

The wedding pictures are in!! I am so happy to have them; we keep going through them over and over and reliving the day. It was seriously the best day ever, I don't care how cliche that sounds! Anyways, I'm not going to bombard you with all of the pictures at once, plus I want to drag it out a bit, so I'm going to break the day down into 4 parts and post some of my favorite pictures from each part every Wednesday for the next few weeks. Today's post is much shorter than the next three, so brace yourselves ;-)

The girls got ready at our venue where our ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception all took place. There was a beautiful bridal suite for us to get ready in. We got there at 9:30am and started immediately decorating some areas (we did some decorating and the staff did others- I had specific ideas in my head for certain areas that I wanted us to do). Our hair and makeup stylists arrived at 10, and we spent the day lounging around the bridal suite, getting our hair and makeup done, eating/drinking, and listening to music.

We were finally all pretty much ready a little after 3pm, and the ceremony started at 4pm. Unfortunately we weren't ready in time to get more bridesmaid pictures before the ceremony (and it was way too cold to stay outside long for many after it was over), but it all worked out just fine.

Wyndridge also had a nice pub area blocked off from the bridal suite downstairs as well, and that's where the guys came to hang out around 2pm before the ceremony. They had already gotten ready individually and rode the limo over (wait til I tell you the story about our transportation debacle- if you're planning a wedding it'll give you nightmares!).

Speaking of nightmares, the groomsmen were supposed to be wearing suspenders and you'll notice how none of them are (except my youngest brother Mitchell, he got his elsewhere). Well, blame Mens' Wearhouse. I won't even get into it, but I'll just say we had SO many problems with them, and I highly recommend you use another place to get your guys' stuff for your wedding if you're planning one. I still think the guys looked good though. It's crazy how my happiness about getting married just overshadowed anything negative and I wasn't phased at all- it was a perfect day!

Next week, ceremony pictures! Happy Thanksgiving guys! Safe travels!
