Our arrival at the venue was met with a cloud, (that passed over as quickly, but caused me a tiny panic attack for about 20 minutes) and these lovely scenes:
To avoid thinking about the looming cloud, we headed into the bridal suite to get dressed and get our first look at our bouquets.
While I attempted to attach my charm bracelet and my bee charms to my bouquet, my bridesmaids were working on finishing their makeup and getting Tiny Dancer ready.
Tiny Dancer brought her rehearsal dinner gift to play with while we got ready. It made for a pretty cute photo op.
I wasn’t quite ready to get into my own dress, so I helped my girls get into their lovely dresses.
Helping Lil Sis/MOH Dolphin zip up her dress.
Side-zippers are apparently a two person job.
After all the girls were dressed I was ready to get into my bridal gown, but my mother had vanished from the room and I wanted to make sure she was there for the moment I put on my dress. I set out to go look for her, but was quickly shoved back into the bridal suite because the men had arrived and were hanging out about 15 feet from our bridal suite. MOH/Lil Sis Dolphin left to find Mom Scepter and to deliver Mr. Scepter’s secret gift.
Was your mom a part of helping you put on your dress or did you want for her to wait to see you until you were fully dressed and ready?
