I woke up on March 13, 2010 prepared to become a wife. I was SO excited!! I was up before 7! My bridesmaid Krissy got up with me and we went for a run. She is the one who helped keep me motivated - she was my workout bud!
After the run, all the girls met me at the room I was staying in. We all jumped into Anngela's car and drove to the hair salon. I was anxious and NO ONE would let me talk to my groom-to-be. =/ boo! We got to the hair salon about 20 minutes early. The OWNER who was doing my hair had CALLED another client and told her to come up because 'brides are always late'. Um, unprofessional much?! I wasn't happy but I wasn't going to cause waves with the woman about to do my hair. So now SHE is late and finally gets to my hair at 9:50. At 10:00 AM she says she has to leave by 10:15!!! to go to Gainesville for another client. I was REALLY upset. She also didn't do my hair the same as the trial the week before. I didn't like it at all. I felt like an '80's Texas pageant queen. NOT OK. When she left, the other girls that worked at the salon gave my bridesmaid Lindsay (who is a stylist in MS) a lot of product so that she could help my hair when we got to the hotel. This woman left some of the hair UNCURLED - what the heck?! This is what I looked like =/
|Please excuse the no makeup haha =)|
We finished eating and started putting our makeup on. Lindsay also does makeup at her salon. To help keep me calm, she did mine. YAY! That was one less thing I had to worry about. Have I mentioned that my girls are amazing?!
Time for the bridesmaids to finish getting ready so we could get me dressed and start taking pictures with the photographer.
Krissy got ready with her jeans on still. She says "why is it so hot in here? OH! oop!!" It definitely helped me relax =)
My girl Lindsay made me beautiful!
It was finally time to put me into my dress.
Each girl helped me with something different once it was time for me to get dressed.
