Wedding weekend recap: suiting up!

Having kissed the cats, I grabbed my dress from the back of the hall closet door where it had been hanging and the bag with my shoes, accessories and something to wear the next morning. With myself, my mama, seven bridesmaids and Jesse, we had ten people to transport to the church, so we split up and piled into three cars with all our crap, with my dad and uncles as chauffeurs. Fortunately we had to be there early enough that they had time to run back home and get prettied up before the ceremony. Once we arrived, we settled into the church parlor and, before too long, got me into my dress.
