Thursday - July 30, 2009 - Today is the day before our wedding! There is so much to do!!! We spent all day decorating and getting hair cuts, clothing steamed, etc. It was crazy!!!
We had our wedding rehearsal at 6:00. All of our wedding party came to practice and we had a run-through with the bishop. I'm not quite as nervous now, that I know what to expect. But the butterflies are definitely there. I can't wait!
After the wedding rehearsal we headed over to Matt's favorite restaurant, Johnny Carino's for our rehearsal dinner. We rented the patio and had it all decorated in our wedding colors, brown, baby pink, and off-white. It looked so pretty.
After a great meal, we handed out the gifts to our wedding party. Ryker, our ring bearer got a bug box to carry his little critters around in, Hallie our flower girl got pretty earrings with a matching bracelet and necklace to wear to the wedding, Sean, Matt's best man, got some cologne along with Tommy, the other groomsman. Whitney, my maid of honor, and Lindsay, my bridesmaid received horshoe pendant necklaces, my mother a pair of pink pearl earrings for the wedding, my dad a picture of Matt and I with a cute Father poem (I wouldn't have made it through this whole ordeal without him!), and to Matt's mother Kim, and father Terry, a tile that says - Thank you for raising your son to be the man of my dreams - Love, Jen 7/31/2009.
We had a blast - then it was off to work for me, I had timecard input to finish, and it took until 2:00 a.m. So much for my beauty rest tonight.
