A Boozy Vineyard Wedding - The Report!
So, having loved reading the reports on here and seeing how all of the many months of planning finally came together I thought it only fair to share mine.
This can be found in full on my planning thread (link attached), but a brief synopsis - this was a long time coming for us, we have been together for many years and have a beautiful 3 year old little girl together.
In fact the first song we had at the signing of the register was 'At Last' by Etta James which sparked some giggling from the crowd!
The lead up
Was in one word - stressful! I had too much work to do in my job to prepare for a holiday, a three year old to look after, so many beauty appointments I don't think a bit of me was left untouched!, and entertaining family - oh and add a family argument into the mix....
I decided to go the whole hog and fit in as many treatments as possible so I had a tight schedule with a treatment every day:
Monday - full head highlights and a trim
Tuesday - Drop dress off to be steampressed and a facial and full body wrap
Wednesday - Spray Tan
Thursday - Collect dress
Friday - shellac nails and waxing
Saturday - Wedding day
So on Monday I turn up to get my hair done only to be told actually there is no appointment for me as their stylist has left and they have tried to contact me.......um no you haven't!
Ok, there have not been many bridezilla moments but I can honestly say this was one of them knowing the tight schedule this as well as working 3 of these days I couldn't fit it all in.....
So had to drop the facial and take the afternoon of work as holiday but just about managed to squeeze it all in......TIP - I would suggest probably not trying to sqeeze so much in and to call the places the day before to reconfirm appointments particularly if you made them a long time ago......
