~Our Renewals~ Hey my WBC family! I've been a little hush- hush lately. Our 14th wedding ann...
I am a happy woman today!
Stop 1: Hair trial.
This was my second one, although my first one at this salon, which is actually to salon I usually go to. I know that doesn't make much since, but I booked another salon due to the availabity of airbrush makeup...but when that didn't work out I booked with my usual salon. So glad I did. It was exactly the look I wanted and gave me the "bridal" I wanted. The last one did an updo I was probably capable of doing myself. So so HAPPY!
Stop 2: Meeting the caterer
They took several things I still needed to take care of off my to do list. We will be having several children at the wedding and I wasn't sure what would be the best way to serve their drinks throughout the night. Juice boxes? Make kool-aid and/or lemonade and serve from those gallon size pour containers. My mom also mentioned wanting to have coffee for later on. Well the caterers are being kind enough to let us keep the huge containers of coffee and punch for the whole night, even after they've packed up and left, and we will just return them the next day or so. They will also provide the containers to pack up any left over food. They will provide appetizers (about 8 different types) for only 50 cents per person for the cocktail hour. And will have chips and pretzels that I was planning on getting to put in these cute green damask "take out" boxes on the tables. Woohoo....I can feel the weight lifting off my shoulders.
Stop 3: The tailor- Wedding Dress is ready!!
My final fitting----and it"s......PERFECT! What a relief.
Could my day have gotten any better?
I also wanted to share with you brides that if you haven't gotten your veil and don't want to spend the hefty $200 that most are the beaded ones are in the bridal shops (yikes, isn't that crazy?!) check out the ebay store Venus Veils. Free expedited shipping, I literally got mine in just like 3 days. And for only $26!! I've attached a stock photo of my veil.
Sorry I don't have any actual pics up yet from my hair trial. My mom took them with her phone, so once I get them I will try to update.
