Wedding Week {Getting Ready}

All of the bridesmaids got ready in a pool house at our venue. 

This is one of my favorite pictures of my bridesmaids getting ready.

The girl wore J Crew silk taffeta dresses in different styles and carried mini boquets of hot pink garden roses.
Evidently, while we were getting ready at the pool house the boys were locked in a side closet at the venue. 

The biggest argument of the entire wedding process was the groomsmen attire. I am a sucker for a cummerbund and bow tie. Doug flat out refused. He said it was not him and he was not wearing it for his wedding. You cannot really argue with that. The guys went with rented suits from Jos A. Bank and light pink ties.

There were no MAJOR Bridezilla moments before the wedding. Their was a slight freak out when the florist shows up with my bouquet. I had requested pink peonies. The day of she ran out and stuffed the thing with spider mums, major "no no".  After I told her that I was not a fan,  she kind of pitched a fit and decided that she was not going to set up the flowers. Thank goodness for our amazing planners. We hired Jamie and Stephanie with Viva L' Event and they saved the day. They did everything! Seriously everything-- set up the venue, ran and got us an ironing board and even drove Doug and I home from the reception. The best thing I did was hire them.  They even offer month before and weekend of planning so it can fit into any budget.

  1. So smitten with your wedding style! The colors, the taffeta, the lace, the gray suits, your shoes!! So lovely.

  2. I really love the color combination. So great for a room inspiration as well.

    That's GOOD stuff.

  4. I am experiencing the EXACT same thing with my groom! He absolutely refuses to get married in a tux. He apparently hates them. Black suits it is! Your wedding is gorgeous, I love it all!

  5. Love your colors, and your photographer totally rocked it. Can't wait to see more!

  6. Sorry about the flowers...what a horrible florist! You all look stunning! Keep it coming!
