I feel like I can’t properly recap my day because it’s full of top secret wedding stuff, but I’ll do my best!
After working through the morning and eating a quick lunch in the break room (we had free subs today!), I stopped by the alterations shop for a fitting. `
(Sorry for the super-vague picture, but I don’t want to reveal too much!)
My sister did her best to find affordable bridesmaid dresses online for everyone which was so thoughtful and definitely appreciated, but unfortunately the seams of my dress were a little off and it pulled in an awkward way across my stomach. Last week, when I brought it in, the talented woman at Alterations Unlimited made me laugh when she ripped my dress in two and said said, “This is an internet dress, isn’t it?” Yes, yes it is!
She put the dress back together and it looked so much better when I tried it on again today. She pinned it so it fit my body and will make the final alterations tomorrow. Ryan is going to pick it up for me on his way to St. Augustine for the rehearsal on Friday. (I totally trust the woman doing my alterations, so I’m not worried about not trying it on again. She’s done all of my other bridesmaid dresses and they turned out well.)
With the bridesmaid dress dilemma solved, I headed home, packed a bag for the festivities ahead and rounded up the rest of the things I’ll need for the wedding. As I started loading my car, I had to laugh when I looked over at the passenger’s seat and found Sadie looking at me with her pleading puppy eyes.
Ryan and I always joke that Sadie’s mission in life is to not get left behind. She seemed awfully happy when she realized she was coming along on today’s road trip!
Sadie’s not the best conversationalist, but she tolerates my singing without complaining, so I give her rave reviews as a road trip buddy.
Road trip snacks included these sweet chai spiced yogurt almonds.
Once I made it to my parents’ place, wedding mayhem began! I worked on a project for the rehearsal dinner and my mom, sister and I went over the wedding day timeline. It’s all coming together!!
