Wedding Recaps: The Morning Of...

After our rehearsal dinner and the night before our wedding day I gave my fiance a kiss on my brother's front porch, and left him for some fun with his boys. 
My bridesmaids Kayli, Kayce, Megan and Tessie stayed with me and my parents of course, at my mom and dad's house (along with Taylor and Ada, two of our nieces (and flower girls) and Kase our nephew, a ring bearer).

I'll be honest here... I didn't get a whole lot of sleep that night. 
Not so much because of nerves... When I finally hit the pillow I was out. :) 
But because I stayed up sipping wine and catching up with my girls.
At the time I was worried I would regret it... But in hindsight, it was so good to just chill out and chit chat with some of my bridesmaids and my parents!

 The morning of our wedding day my mom and dad made us biscuits and gravy
The perfect wedding day breakfast, chocolate gravy for me by request of course. :)
My absolute favorite. A few of the girls tried and liked it. 
Maybe I'll share the recipe sometime. ;)

The WHOLE morning it was raining
A few of the girls and I drove on over to Alpine so I could get the key and check in to our cabin for the wedding night. By then it was seriously pouring!

Our entire bridal party met at the condos next to the country club to get dressed and ready.
Girls in one condo. Guys in another. 

After a tasty burger for lunch from the Bear Wallow Cafe, we got down to the business of getting ready!

*Everyone's advice prior to my wedding day was, EAT EAT EAT! 
So naturally, I did! ;)
My advice to YOU... EAT EAT EAT! 
Then you can relax and enjoy your day without a growling tummy or a light head!!!
