While the guys were hanging out and getting ready downstairs in the best man’s room, the girls were up in my room getting dressed and ready.
We had some water & snacks from the out of town bags…
As the flowers arrived!
Sarah snapped some photos of our rings…
…while I admired my bouquet.
After that, I helped my mom and grandmother with their corsages:
Then, it was time for the girls to get into their dresses! They were hung up all pretty on the hangers I had made them…
After they were dressed and putting on their makeup, my gift from Dr. Groomy arrived. The girls looked on as I opened it up.
During the week of the wedding, Dr. Groomy gifted me with a brand new camera, which he gave to me before the wedding day so I could use it for all of the week’s events. He also got me a little something fun to open up on our actual wedding day to be used for the honeymoon—Table Topics! It has cards that ask discussion questions like, “Who were you surprised to see talking together at the reception?” and “What’s your best memory of our courtship?” We took them out to dinner with us one night in Napa, and it was really fun to talk about all those things!
Then, it was time for ME to start thinking about getting ready. Sarah snapped some photos of my somethings:
And you can’t forget my shoes!
Sigh, I LOVE THEM.
She also grabbed a few snaps of my accessories…
And that intinerary Dr. Groomy was so good about following:
And of course, my favorite shot of our rings.
And then it was time for me to become a bride, officially. Stay tuned!
