A few quick details, advice and photos and then I'm off to bed since my HUSBAND (I just wrote FH lol!) and I just recently returned from Puerto Rico!

Quick Recap: 6:00 a.m on wedding day I was down to a fever of 99.9, at 9:30 the night before I had a 102 degree fever and found out I had/have 'walking phenomena (and I'm still sick)! Day of the wedding I took lots of medications, vitamin C, tried to rest and not to stress about anything. I went to my hair appointment alone and just let my stylist do her thing, it really helped me unwind.

Quick Advice and "Wisdom":

1. Things more than most likely WILL go wrong; we didn't have any major issues but some details that I worked hard on got left out and while I'm bummed, no one really knew and it wasn't the end of the world. I just let it go.

2. If you want something different, go for it. We had a very 'non-traditional' ceremony and reception and our guests loved it!

    3. Remember a reception is just a freakin' party, you're celebrating, not putting on a show. Have fun, let loose and enjoy the fact you just married the love of your life.

    4. Hire professional vendors; you CAN find them on a budget and it definitely makes your life MUCH, MUCH easier.

    5. Choose your bridal party wisely. Make sure that the people you choose to be by your side are worth the time and stress they may cause.

    I will elaborate more on details, advice, etc. in a post later this week.

    For now, here are some photos; first three were obviously teaser photos, now here are a mix of a few more teasers and some random guest photos...

    Picture three is our first dance....

    4. First look and ceremony.

    5. Prep

    6. Something blue and my spider hair piece, my hair was falling down but this was taken about an hour before the end of the reception.

    Oh I'm so sorry to hear about your walking pneumonia, my dad had that at Christmas one year and he was in a miserable state for like a month, I can't imagine dealing with that on your wedding day! You're a trooper!

    I love that first dance picture with your dress spinning outward, it's so pretty! The groom's cake is so adorable too, I love it! Also I think one of the first posts I remember from you was about that spider hair piece and I thought it was quirky but I loved that you were expressing something you liked. I think that is the prettiest spider I'll ever see!!
