While we were getting ready, we watched Love, Actually and Steel Magnolias.
Before I knew it, both Sonia and Livia were ready to start on our hair and make-up. While hanging around, I had the girls sign the guest book. It's a great idea to have your bridal party sign it before the wedding so that they have the time to write something meaningful.
There was a knock on the door, and it was the bellhop delivering flowers from my soon-to-be husband. The entire room erupted in "ohh's"
After a tasty lunch of Subway, it was my turn to get pretty. Sonia and Livia do amazing work.
I'm the sort of girl that loves to get her make-up and her done. But I was ready to go! I'm putting on the beautiful diamond earrings that my Maid of Honor bought me(us) as our wedding present.
Then, we started to run late. I act terrible when I am running late; I get totally stressed out. It's quite obvious in the pictures. It felt like it took an hour to get that dress on me! My bridesmaids hooked, zipped, and buttoned.
They also used a crochet hook to hook the buttons.
Finally, I grabbed my bouquet. The bouquet was wrapped in Denton's family hankerchief and tied with my initial brooch (a gift a few years ago from my bridesmaid, Shena).
Since Denton and I were meeting privately, the girls had to be ready about ten minutes after me. In this photo, my Maid of Honor is being helped by my Mother-in-law while her daughter is talking to my nieces.
No shoes! Well, for a bit anyway. Since the girls were wearing 3" heels, I told them not to put them on until they were walking out the door. I think they they were happy to follow my advice as their feet were killing them later!
