I'm slowly getting back into the grove of things. I had such a hard time coming back to work yesterday lol. So....On 2/22 we had the rehearsal at 7:30 pm everyone was "on time" except one best man & one groomsman & they we only a couple minutes late so I was definitely excited. I told everyone it started at 7 so that they would be there by 7:30 when the pastor would be arriving lol. We ran through the ceremony about 3 times it was quick & fun
Then we went up to the tiki bar and ate & drank for a few hours there was sooo much love! I had a blast!!!
Morning of everybody on earth wanted to call & text my phone for no reason...I just stopped answering lol. Hair & makeup went ok...The hair stylist kinda wanted to do whatever she wanted to do to my hair. I think she was upset b/c I didnt want what she wanted me to have. Oh well, my hair, my money! MUA did a great job on my makeup but all the girls absolutely hated theres
My bestfriend's lashes were falling off before we even started getting dressed. It was a little annoying...
The ceremony went by sooooo quickly! When I started walking down my babe was crying & I tried soooo hard not to but couldnt hold back so I started crying lol. It was beautiful!! There were soooo many people from the hotel standing around watching lol. I saw people that I didnt know crying. After the ceremony, just before we started taking pics I founnd out that while I was inside waiting to walk out my father in-law had been rushed to the hospital b/c while he was sitting waiting for the ceremony to begin he was having a hard time breathing
He's doing fine now but I was really sad & concerned.
After pix we went into the reception hall and apparently the photographer & videographer were outside somewhere, not sure where but after we did out 1st dance my coordinator came to me saying that she was gonna snap on the photographer b/c he came up to her shaking his finger in her face saying she knows better & she shouldve came & gotten him before we entered. Of course he came up to me saying he said "could you possibly next time come get us before anything happens" lol...I honestly couldnt care less. I understood both sides. He didnt want us to me mad that he wasnt capturing moments, but she isnt a 5 year old & he needs to learn how to respectfully speak to ppl. I know he did it b/c I almost had to get him together when we were getting dressed & the boys said the same thing...They did get video & photo of the 1st dance but i think they missed the beginning of the wedding party entering the room (no biggie imo)
The reception was so much fun!!! It went by super fast though! There were a TON of ppl that didnt bother showing up & I so badly want to call them & say something rude but I know it would be classless lol. I just feel like it's so tacky for you to RSVP & then not show up. We wasted like a grand on no shows & 99% of them didnt even bother calling to apologize or anything -_-... After the reception we went to the Hard Rock Casino in Tampa & all our friends met us there. We ate & laughed and then we went up to our room b/c we had to be up at 5am to fly out to Mexico
Honeymoon was AMAZING!!! I had so much fun, it was really relaxing & the service at the resort was top of the line. We were treated like queens & kings!!! Loved it!!! We really didnt have to leave the resort for anything. The food was great & we had so many options to choose from, the drinks were great & never ending lol. We went to the night club inside the resort 3 nights in a row. We went shopping & a few ppl tried to rip us off lol. Luckily we had already gotten the conversion rate. They will try to give u pesos back for you american cash in a heartbeat & think you dont know how much you should get back!! It was fun though! We'll definitely go back there at some point
We have soooooo many gifts & there was sooo much love!!! I couldnt be more happy! The only thing is we have a lot of duplicate gifts so we have to take some back this week. I ordered our thank you cards so I should get them tomorrow & start sending those out. That'll be a task lol. Thank you ladies soooo much for all your help, advice, & support throughout this past year! Love my knottie sisters!!! I'm sure I'll still be getting advice
Thanks for reading
