After 16 months of wedding planning, we were not just looking forward to the wedding day itself and seeing all of our hard work and planning coming together, but to finally be married. It was a beautiful day where most things went smoothly, but there were some small bumps that I'll share so that no one makes the same mistakes I did.
Enjoy time with your girls in the bridal suite while getting your hair and makeup done, and make sure you eat and drink plenty of water! I didn't even though there were sandwiches and fruit platters in the bridal suite I barely had anything to eat and just sipped on champagne. This led to me feeling sick while taking pictures before the ceremony, and having to be taken away where my mom and wedding coordinator had to cool me down with wet cloths, and feed me crackers and ginger ale. No fun! It was a combination of the heat, not having eaten enough, and my dress being laced up too tight.
I know it's not for everyone, but we are so happy we did a first look/private reveal. It was so nice to have that moment be private for us to talk, laugh, hug, and cry before walking down the aisle in front of hundreds of people. And it took absolutely nothing away from my walk down the aisle, I was still super emotional and on cloud nine as I walked towards my groom.
....Thank you so much Kate, you're such a sweetheart and sure made a beautiful bride. I can't wait for all of you to see who's joining me the next few days. Until then...XO!
