As the first of what will be quite a few posts to share about our wedding, I want to say that if you have no interest in the wedding stuff, never fear! I have some race reports on the blog posting plan along with a post on the Justin Timberlake concert in Nashville, the one coming up in Indy, and some other odds and ends. I'm trying to get back to posting regularly, and I'll filter some other stuff in with the wedding posts.
For now, a quick post about Wednesday, August 7th!
Adam had to work for the first 3 days of the week before our wedding. We went down to Nashville the weekend before, but then he had to leave to drive back to Indy. I was busy all week getting things done.. like having my hair cut and colored, making seating charts and cards, last minute dress alterations, and a plethora of other last minute things that needed to get done. And probably also trying not to cry from stress, but that happened some, too.
In fact, I went to Sephora with my mom to try to find some foundation that provides better coverage than what I usually wear. Long story short, I told the lady I just wanted foundation, and somewhere along the way she criticized the rest of the makeup I was planning to wear for the wedding. I'm sure she was just doing her job to try to make a sale, but with less than a week to go to my wedding, she made the wrong choice and lost the foundation sale. I ended up finding what I needed in another store, but not before bursting into tears with my mom and saying something along the lines of "I'm tired of people trying to tell me what to do for MY wedding that I've spent MONTHS planning!"
Adam's boss sent him on his way Wednesday afternoon, and he made it down to Nashville in time for us to head to the airport to pick up our two out-of-town wedding party members!
When we got engaged, I had no doubt that I'd ask my sister along with Stephanie and Amanda to stand up there with me. Long time readers of the blog know that I have been friends with these gals for years, and despite the distance we have always found time to get together whenever we can.
Upon collecting them, we went out to dinner at a place in Nashville that we'd never tried - The Row. The southern far was really good - our cheese plate was flat out exceptional! The cocktails were not the best, and the service was a little slow... but the place was new and we really didn't care since we were so excited about being altogether for the wedding!
After dinner, we made our way to my parent's house. I was so excited to show the girls some of the decor for the weddings, their bouquets, etc. Adam eventually left to go stay at his mom's place, and we all crashed to get some rest for the next day - we had a lot planned with manicures, the rehearsal and the dinner!
