I think Jess is doing an impression of Debbie here. I can't remember if this was before or after Jess hid the bottle of Advil from Debbie. Always good times with these girls! Haha!
I was sporting a Juicy track pants/jacket that had 'Mrs. Cain' embroidered on the jacket and a Victoria's Secret tank top that said 'Sexy Little Bride.' My bridesmaids made sure that I was comfy and stylin'!
Once in the hotel lobby we all made a bee line for Starbucks. It was like the espresso machine was screaming our names! Nothing like kicking off your wedding day with a deliciously hot beverage from Starbucks! Yum! Sadly though, they did not have my Pumpkin Spice Latte.
After our much needed Starbucks run it was time to get on the bus to head to the salon where we would be getting our hair done and I would be getting my makeup done. Our photographer, Angela Talley, and videographer, Bob Ridge of Indy Visual, would also be meeting us at the salon to start snapping away and filming.
- Eat something when you wake up - we didn't have time for a full breakfast so my mom made sure to have a basket of breakfast bars and goodies. This basket also accompanied us to the salon. Food is very vital because come reception time when everyone else is eating.....you probably will not be doing much of this!
- Directions - make sure that you not only send all of your vendors a timeline but also directions/addresses of where they need to be and when. I sent the photographer, videographer, limo and makeup artist the timeline and directions to the hair salon a week prior to the wedding. Your vendors should ask for these but in the event they don't ask don't assume they know where they are going or what time they need to be there.
- Bridal Attire - it's your day so why not! I loved wearing my comfy, bride outfit. Key thing- comfort!
I should probably apologize.....I am REALLY having a terrible time narrowing down my favorite pictures so I am just going to bombard you with tons of pictures from our photographer (she sent me 862 pictures). This is going to be a long set of recaps! Hope you enjoy!
