Well lovely followers, we are back from our wonderful, fabulous, relaxing honeymoon! I can’t wait to share some photos and stories with you soon, but I wanted to back up just a step here and do my dress reveal! I know this post is kind of after the fact…I meant to set it to post the day after the wedding, but I just ran out of time! So, sorry for the delay but here it is for anyone who is still interested…
If you recall from before, I bought my dress from Marges Bridal House, the same place where my mother bought her wedding dress 35 years ago. It was definitely a dress fit for a queen (at least that’s how it made me feel). The designer is Davinci Bridal (although, I can’t remember the style number).
Well the time is here, my lovelies. I am sitting in my hotel room while my handsome groom is off spending some much needed time entertaining our guests. I am exhausted but totally excited all at the same time. The last 10 months have been a total whirlwind of emotions. Mr. Farmer and I have been planning this elaborate event for what seems like forever and now it’s here.
I can honestly say that this has been the time of my life. I have never been happier than I have been these last two days. Despite a few downfalls (death in the family, hotel mix-ups, rehearsal dinner snafus) nothing could bring me down from this amazing high that I have been on. I am so incredibly ready to marry the love of my life tomorrow in a front of all our family and friends. We are so blessed by all the people who have made the journey to Eau Claire to celebrate with us, and for that I am beyond grateful.
To all the amazing readers and fellow bees, I cannot thank you enough for all the encouraging words you have provided me throughout my entire journey, whether it be good or bad. Whenever I needed advice or support, you wonderful bees were there to lend an ear and offer advice. Specifically I want to thank Miss Milk Cow for allowing me to blow up her mailbox with insane freak-out moments. She was always there to give me a little advice, and as she is doing the same thing as I am doing today, I cannot help but think about her and thank her for offering some insightful advice.
I’ve been doing a lot of thinking about our bar lately (see here, here and here), but I don’t want anybody to get the wrong impression about our boozy bash. Today, I’m going to flip the script and talk about what we’re not going to drink at our wedding: champagne.
Hive, you were extremely helpful last week with all your advice and input about Mr. BC’s wardrobe and pop-of-color options. Thank you! I came up with some new ideas and threw the ball into Mr. BC’s court. I’m not yet sure what we’ll end up with, but I am definitely liking the new path we’re on.
You were so helpful and awesome that I’ve decided to throw all of my questions about the wedding to you guys for advice and input. I’m calling the series “What Would Bees Do?” HA!
So here’s my next dilemma: reception entertainment. I am undecided about what to do for entertainment at the reception. I have been kicking this around for six months and still feel just as undecided as the first day I started thinking about it. *sigh*
Our wedding package comes with a three hour reception that includes dinner. I figure dinner, toasts, first dance, and cake cutting is probably 90 minutes, right? (Please feel free to correct me.) So that leaves 90 minutes to fill. The obvious choice is to book a DJ, but the resort charges $1,200 for three hours.
