Day 3- Rehearsal When I woke up this morning, I felt okay for someone who had been out so late, but as soon as I tried to talk---- I had no voice! I could barely speak even if I strained. Not good at all! I had lots of boxes to organize and to add to the stress we were moving from the Contemporary Resort to the Caribbean Beach Resort. I told my mom we should just ask for late checkout but she wanted to come back in between the rehearsal and the welcome lunch and move resorts then. So, we were on a tight schedule today and I was rushing around packing everything I needed to take to the rehearsal- my rehearsal bouquet, decorations for the welcome lunch and gifts for the wedding party - plus, everything I had brought with me in suitcases to go to the Contemporary. And of course, I needed to shower, blow dry, flat iron, do my makeup, etc. lol You girls know how that routine goes! Surprisingly, we left on time. My parents drove us over in order to save time. The Wedding Pavilion was gorgeous! I couldn't believe that in 24 hours we would be getting MARRIED there! It was surreal seeing our names on the marquee out front! We went inside and I was happy to see some of our party and our awesome wedding planner Michelle inside I took some pictures with my family and friends. I seem to have lost one flash drive of pictures. I will go back and edit when I find them. Another tip to brides to be- Give someone YOUR camera and ask them to take pictures. I ended up missing out on a lot of pictures and losing others, so learn from my mistakes! Here is me with my brother and then my SIL. I am wearing the Swarovski heart necklace my mom gave me at my bridal shower. It is so pretty! Then, I met with Rev. Jack Day. He is one of my favorite parts of my wedding. I am so glad I chose him. He was such a sweet and respectful gentleman. He complimented my ceremony and said he thought it would go perfectly. I trusted him so much that I ended up focusing a lot on him at the wedding because I knew he would tell me what to do next! lol One thing I loved about Rev. Jack is that he took me on the side, with Michelle, not with anyone else around and asked me several questions about exactly how things were supposed to run. It was great because it eliminated anyone giving their opinions on things or anything becoming a "discussion". It was very clear when Michelle or Rev. Jack said something, everyone listened. Rehearsal went very quickly and smoothly because of that. We had a few people running late, so after my conversation with Rev. Jack, we waited for a few moments and joyfully, they arrived! Finally, we could begin! First my mom walked down the aisle escorted by my eldest nephew/her eldest grandson. Then, Rev. Jack. Don't worry, that stroller won't be there on the wedding day lol. My groom! Best Man Groomsmen Then my GIRLS! Look at how much faster and closer together my girls move! Make your own judgments! Yes, we had 5 bridesmaids and 3 groomsmen. I am glad it worked out that way, too. These are my best friends and I wanted it to be about that and not specific numbers matching up. I also had my 4 eldest nephews as ushers and my brothers and sisters-in-law listed as honor attendants and they walked down the aisle as well. I will post my program so you can see how I did it. Because my nephews were preteens and teenagers and my brothers are in their 40's, plus all together there would be a TON of them, and you can't just ask one or two- I didn't ask them to be groomsmen, but ushers and honor attendants instead- it just seemed to work out best this way.
