Skinny Bride Wedding Recap

Just in case you don’t know the “story” behind Mrs.Skinny Bride let me take a quick second to explain. My dear friend Christina asked me back in January to help her lose weight for her wedding day, she wanted to be a “Skinny Bride”. Not only did I help her lose weight (she looked HOT before) I helped her plan her wedding, and was a Brides Maid! Needless to say everything turned out beautifully and I am one tired girl :)

Friday night we all went out for Tacos after the Wedding Rehearsal.

They were mini Tacos! I probably had about 5.

I also enjoyed an Orange Wheat Beer and DID NOT CHEER for the ANGLES! As you can see I am a Dodgers fan!

I love being in weddings. I love that I get to get all dolled up! First thing Saturday morning my Mama did my make up, I love having a Makeup Artist in the family! I am not really into make up, so I felt like a Movie Star.

I had to get some SBUX after to make it through the day!

My good friend Jamie did my hair, lot’s of teasing(ouch) I felt like a Southern Belle for a minute there :).


It turned out perfect!

After getting my hair and make up done, I headed over to the hotel to get dressed with the wedding party. I loved our dresses, the colors were stunning!

We had to leave a little early, because Hubby wasn’t feeling well. I said one last goodbye to the Beautiful Bride in her HOT dancing dress(I so want this).

What a fun and beautiful time we had!!! I know they will have an amazing marriage and I wish them all the happiness in the WORLD!

Last night I couldn’t wait to do this…

I love the color scheme of the wedding. Looks like you did a wonderful job helping to plan because the wedding looks beautiful. Congrats to the newly weds.

Lia said...

It looks sooo nice!! I really like the colour combination actually, I wouldn't have thought of it for a wedding initially, but I REALLY like it. I have been in 1 traditional Muslim wedding, which was SO fun, but very loud. The traditions are rather different and there is a lot of waiting, but epic experience. The other was half traditional Musliim and half traditional Christian, though I don't know what branch. That was a cool fusuion of traditions and cultures.

I went to a Greek Orthodox wedding years ago and it was so interesting to see the different ceremonies and things they did at the church. It was beautiful and very traditional.

Skinny Bride's wedding looked amazing...I love the color scheme! Congrats to her!

I'm going to be the matron of honor in my friend's wedding, and it will be a traditional Catholic wedding. I think it will be even more traditional (or at least more conservative) than this one because the bridesmaids all need to have dresses with sleeves.
