We did it!!!

After postponements and a much longer engagement than planned, my husband and I finally got married on Saturday, August 6th!! It was absolutely PERFECT and I would not have changed a thing. I only wish that it had lasted longer because the day just flew by so quickly and I'm almost in wedding withdrawal. The day after, we re-read our vows to each other so we could absorb them again. I think we were just so focused on each other and so excited that some things just feel like they didn't sink in!

I can't wait for the professional photos to come out, but for now here are some phone ones that a few friends and guests took!

I wish was stuck in one of those time loops to relive the day over and over again!

    Omgsh good for you for keeping your cool! Sounds like you have the right mindset for the day to be a success : )

    We had our day on Saturday and you're right somehow it ALL works out, it really could not have gone better AND , the band did not end up showing up until 5 min. before start time, we forgot the stir sticks for the coffee and tea and there was a different photographer that showed up from original plan BUT, still would not change a thing about the day : ) : )

    It actually didn't feel that heavy at all even though I know it was! The dress was very well supported by the bodice, which fit quite tightly and I guess most of the weight was carried there and on my hips. It was much heavier for the bridal party to carry I think but it didn't feel that way when I walked around with it unsupported. It was bustled for the reception and didn't drag. I had a hoop for the skirt part and that let me walk without kicking the dress or making it even bigger lol. The veil was super light, and I just needed someone to help carry it when we were doing photos so it didn't tear on the floor.

    Thank you so much!! The weather held out for us - I was so worried because there were thunderstorm warnings but it never rained. It was insanely humid so my hair fell but that's okay!! If you're oilier or it's going to be super hot, then bring blotting paper and makeup setting spray/touch up stuff into the bridal suite. All of us us ended up using it!

    I also had an emergency kit that I made with, and we actually did use a lot. My MOH's shoe strap broke 5 mins before the ceremony and we used tape and super glue to fix it lol. We also used the q-tips in there, gum/mints, and straws.

    Also - lol, I had lipstick on my teeth the entire ceremony and my husband said it got progressively worse but no one noticed. I'm sure the photos will be fine, but have someone do a quick check. I re-applied an hour beforehand so I guess I put in too much! I also signed the WRONG LINE on the marriage certificate, which was hilarious, and it didn't matter in the end (thankfully).

    Try not to worry TOO much about the time. Obviously, there is a timeline to follow, but usually the schedule has some wiggle room and it just means less time is spent on something else. I was 40 mins late leaving to the venue but still got there with enough time to chill, and during the reception we ran 2 hrs behind but no one noticed since we had food and drinks going. They also didn't know the schedule so just assumed that was it.

    All in all - HAVE FUN. In the end, it is all about you and your future partner and it will all work out! There are always things that won't go as planned (I actually had quite a few other issues - limo didn't have working AC so we were melting, a giant bee came out of my bridal bouquet while in the limo and we had to get rid of it, my husband got a call 1 hour before the ceremony from a guy who apparently had our luggage because the hotel gave it to him by accident), and it ALL worked out!!
