Once we had finished our wedding party pictures and were heading up to the limo, I started to get butterflies in my stomach. You know, those “holy crap I have to walk down the aisle in front of 115 people and I might fall and then I have to sit in front of everyone while they watch me for an hour” butterflies. Yes. I got a little bit anxious. But I tried to push that anxiety down, because I knew that people would (hopefully) be focused on Fr. John, our readers, and the mass itself, rather than on me.
So we gathered our stuff. I think in this picture I am trying to gulp some water down before we leave. It was hot, yo!
Then, because my mom missed out on my “pulling on the dress” pictures, we forced her to pretend to zip me up for posterity. Ha. This picture cracks me up. We look so staged! And my eyes are closed. Jeebus. I am glad I have the next two though, because they are the only pictures of just my mom and me that day. How did that happen?!
Confession time: detail posts are always my all-time favorite part of recaps. I know that’s a little messed up, since there’s no display of emotion, no heartfelt glances or sweet embraces captured in detail shots. But as someone who spent 10 months pinning away and absorbing photo after photo posted on wedding blogs, I did care about the details.
Feast your eyes, detail lovers.

I had a huuuuuge crush on all of Rifle Paper Co.’s designs. (Still do…I have a Rifle Paper calendar hanging above my desk at work.) I love the nostalgic hand-painted illustrations and lettering—Anna Bond is a genius. However, I couldn’t afford the $1,000+ price tag for 100 save-the-dates, invitations, and RSVP cards. Our whole stationery budget was $150.

I realize that I’m an oddball sometimes, so here’s another one of those times.
I hate, hate, hate the tradition of being walked down the aisle and being given away. Seriously, the idea of being walked down the aisle by someone freaks me out and makes me incredibly uncomfortable.
From the first time I imagined my own wedding (and let’s be honest, I was probably like four), I have always wanted to walk myself down the aisle. I’m not even completely sure why, but I’ve always have felt this way.

She looks so radiant walking down the aisle by herself.
Don’t get me wrong, I love my parents and this really isn’t about them. And maybe that’s what so weird about this. Looking for information about this online brings up many people who want to walk themselves because they have non-existent relationships with their fathers or their father has passed on, and it seems perfectly okay in that case. But I don’t seem to find many stories about people who choose to walk down the aisle by themselves for other reasons.
This will probably be the last post I make before the big day because with three days to go, time is of the essence. We are looking at a fantastic wedding weekend—weather wise. Philadelphia will be in the mid to upper 40’s all weekend, and loads of sunshine. We’ve dropped off all our stuff to the caterer, so it’s just fun stuff like manicures & pedicures, shopping (who still doesn’t have an outfit for the rehearsal?? This girl.), and wrapping up our last minute gifts for our bridal party and parents. So much to do, so little time. But I do have time to share with you one last pre-wedding event that I had recently!
Last week, my fantastic colleagues and friends threw me a super sweet school shower. I was almost completely surprised, but someone accidentally left the notice folded up on my desk…I thought it was a note for me from a student or a teacher, so I opened it…and well, that was it for the surprise. We were just a few days away—and I hadn’t been snooping or anything! I had so much on my mind that I hadn’t really thought about it. I guess I knew it was coming—everyone at school gets a shower for their first marriage. But I hadn’t put too much thought into it at all. I played along very convincingly and most people at school still think I was very much surprised. (Turns out I will turn bright red even at the thought of being the center of attention for that long—so it worked well in our favor.)
The fantastic hostesses (and you can see where I work all day!)
When it came to the wedding, I had a tendency to tell pretty much anyone all they wanted to know (and more) about the food, details, ceremony, attire, etc. Not much was unknown.
However, I did mange to keep at least one thing relatively quiet. Any ideas…?!

If you guessed “personalized temporary tattoos”, then you win a prize!!*
About two and a half weeks out from the wedding, I read Mrs. Funnel Cake’s post about the temporary tattoos she had made for her wedding, and I absolutely fell in love with the idea.
For one, it’s awesome and unexpected, and two, Foxy and I already have real matching tattoos. Needless to say, this idea went from inspiration to reality in about an hour (well, a few days if you count delivery time). I whipped up a quick design on my computer (with some elements borrowed from Mrs. FC, since we’re both lucky enough to share initial’s with our husbands), put my order in with Tattoo Manufacturing, and got 150 of these bad boys delivered about four days before the wedding.
