Friday was amazing and surprisingly I got to bed early, because I had work to do Saturday morning! And by work, I mean…
Some of my girls and I ran the Rear in Gear Inaugural 5k! And what a blast we had… we popped champagne with my marathon training group (and yep. I burped bubbles til about mile 1.5), sweated in the sun the whole time, and watched two of my closest friends run their first race ever! Then I was taken back to Bridal Headquarters (BHQ) on Jones St (voted one of the prettiest streets in America by this beauty….
After cruisin’ back in style and a quick shower (don’t worry, my girl were escorted by bus to shower too!)… we were off to JW Salon & Spa for hair then back to BHQ where Glow Med Spa came and did some of the girls make up while others did their own! We ate, drank some bubbly, and chatted until it was time to put on dresses.
I feel like I should also let you know a few details of what should of happened around 3:30pm that day. My dad and I were to arrive in a horse drawn carriage to one of Savannah’s squares. We had the chairs, flowers, string trio… yada yada set to go for outside. Well that’s all fine and dandy until you hear tornado sirens going off. Couple that with torrential downpour and you have yourself on the phone with your wedding planner saying “ok, let’s do the rain plan”.
I was actually surprised at myself that I didn’t freak and just rolled with it. It was our day and despite the ugly weather outside from about 1pm-midnight, everything was amazing!!
***Forgot a special shout out on Friday’s post– I mentioned on twitter I needed a steamer. Thank goodness Amy Brock, the Social Media Queen of Savannah retweeted. Well, Savannah Theater offered to let me borrow one! We swung by on the way to the rehearsal. It was a lifesaver, because we took first look photos (outside under umbrellas) on Saturday and I had to pick up my dress and organza wrinkles like an SOB. So we could steam it before I walked down the aisle.
Speaking of first look… here are the three sneak peeks I have thus far. You can’t see my full gown since it was down pouring at this point, but I got it at BleuBelle Bridal Salon . I swoon for them and their customer service, the owner Heather and manager Courtney really go above and beyond. I love those girls!
Be back with a posts on reception, Sunday send0ff brunch, then honeymoon… but I will probably be posting some runs in between
