Nobody ”˜Scept You: A Bridal Brunch

Some brides say they have trouble sleeping the night before their wedding, but I passed out the moment we came home from the movie and slept until my alarm woke me up at 8:00 am. I am not a morning person (no matter what morning it happens to be), so MOH Dancer and Bridesmaid Fashionista started my morning with a “It’s Your Wedding Day” dance and song that they made up on the spot.

A few months before our wedding I was telling MOH Dancer that I wanted to find a way to spend as much time as possible with our friends and family that had come into town for our wedding. Since we were leaving at the crack of dawn for our honeymoon, the day after our wedding was not going to be an option for us. Luckily, MOH Dancer’s mom came to the rescue and offered to throw a wedding day brunch for all the women in town for the wedding so I could spend a little extra time with them. Brunch is my absolute favorite meal, so despite the fact that I was still clinging to my bad mood from the night before, I was trying to push my emotions aside and prep myself for the see of smiling faces and delicious food. Momma Dancer did an incredible job setting up the room and cooking the food.

Momma Dancer is a fellow UT grad, so we had to have a shot with our horns up.

Bruch lasted about an hour and a half and it was the perfect way to spend the morning of our wedding. I was so glad to be able to spend some extra time with my friends, and it helped to keep my moodiness at bay. What did you do the morning of your wedding?

The recaps began.

We received an awesome gift.

The girls got pampered.

We stuffed our faces.

The bridal party was gifted.

A short rehearsal was had.

The smell of popcorn causes a small panic.

    Very sweet! Oh and you’re totally lucky that you were able to fall right asleep the night of your wedding. I can barely sleep the night before I get on a plane so I just KNOW I won’t be getting any sleep the night before the wedding :(
