To make sure you understand all the craziness leading up to the wedding we're going to go back to a week before the wedding on Sunday, when I met the boy's mom at his sister's house for my dress fitting. The dress I tried on at the store fit me almost perfectly, but while I did order a new one from the designer, I did know that there wasn't a lot of alterations to be done.
I tried it on along with my shoes and veil (the shoes a necessity, the veil for fun to see how it would all come together), and it was determined that it needed to be hemmed an inch or two, and brought in slightly in the chest. And in addition the boy's mom, or officially now my mother-in-law, added a small loop toward the bottom of the dress so it could be bustled by attaching it to one of the buttons.
While I tried my dress on,
We talked about the hurricane that was in the gulf, and how it was definitely on its way to hit Florida. My mother-in-law mentioned that she had a hair appointment on Wednesday early afternoon, and I let her know that a few hours later I had my own hair appointment. Except at the time, we truly had no idea that there was no way we'd be making those appointments.
How did the last weekend before your wedding turn out? And does anyone have any guesses whether I actually managed to get in a hair appointment before the wedding?
