Before I go into the details of the morning of the wedding, I must share one last detail about the night before. After our rehearsal dinner was over, we had gone to our friend’s bar for a bit to visit with friends who were just getting into town. While we were there I noticed that my nails were destroyed (the manicure I had earlier in the day was not the greatest) so I decided to fix it before I went to bed. My sister (and MOH) and I stopped at the store on our way to the hotel (keep in mind this is after midnight and Walmart was the only store open) and bought some nail polish. When we got back to the hotel, I sat down on the bed and immediately painted my nails while we were chatting. The next thing I knew, it was light outside, and both of us were sleeping while sitting up on top of the covers. I had a bit of a freak out when I realized we had fallen asleep… I was afraid I was going to be late for my own wedding day! Thankfully it was only about 5 AM and I still had a little while left to sleep… under the covers and laying down this time!
When I woke up (for the second time) we gathered our stuff and headed for the salon. Leah went right to work on my hair since we’d already had a trial.
My bridesmaids took turns getting their hair done and had some breakfast and mimosas while they waited.
At some point, my (almost!) husband sent me a sweet text telling me that he couldn’t wait to marry me. I swear it made me much happier than I look in this photo.
My hair took forever. Literally like 2 hours. I was a little apprehensive at first… this is not what we had agreed upon!
But eventually it started looking better.
When it was almost complete, we took a break to do my makeup.
Everyone else was doing their makeup, too.
After a few last minute tweaks on my hair…
and a lot of hairspray, we were ready to head to the church!
