Yesterday was SUCH a busy day!
(Yay! Smith/Eckert rehearsal!)
We went to our wedding rehearsal, which was pretty good... for the most part. The Justice of the Peace that we have for our wedding made a big deal about everyone getting there fifteen minutes early, so that we start exactly at 11, and then, partway through the whole rehearsal, she sees her friend, stops the rehearsal, and starts trying to get this other lady's attention, and proceeds to talk to her for five minutes while all of us were wondering what the hell she was thinking. Robyn was so not impressed... it was pretty awkward. And rude. The rest of the rehearsal went really well, though... the staff at the garden are amazing! Of course, my mom teared up multiple times throughout the whole thing... she's going to be blubbering like a baby next Saturday :P
After the rehearsal, Robyn and I rushed over to a liquor store that we had been to in the west end before, because we knew they had the Ehrenfelser wine from Summerhill Winery, and that was the white I really wanted for the wedding. We picked up four bottles of that, and four bottles of a Mission Hill Cabernet Sauvignon, as well as six bottles of Martini and Rossi Asti Spumante for the toasts.
Next we had the hair trials, and my long awaited hair cut! I think my hair trial turned out pretty cute. She did a twist along one side and along the front, and then a little mini twist on the other side. It'll look a bit different next Saturday, because I'll have my fascinator, too.
A little taste of my hair for the wedding, and a nice view of the sunburn that I got :P (You can see Cocoa in the corner, too!)
After the hair trial, Robyn and I came home, and relaxed on the patio for a little while, before we had to go out to 4404 for our rehearsal dinner. Dinner was really lovely, and I think everyone really enjoyed their meals. It was nice to get to see most of our family and have a little get together before the big shindig next weekend. And, I love 4404, it's one of my favourite restaurants!
I'm getting more and more excited every day for the wedding... it's going to be so much fun! And it's only six days away!! I feel like this week is going to pass by soooo quickly!
Today we pretty much just spent the day relaxing, hoping that Robyn will start to feel better soon... and I went out with my sister and the kidlets, to Walmart, to pick up a few groceries and some stuff for the trip. It was nice to get to see Kippy today, even if I did get to see her yesterday (and I'll get to see her tomorrow :P)
I get to pick up my wedding dress from the tailor tomorrow! I'm so excited!
Well, that's all I have for tonight!
