There are the pre-wedding events in a nutshell. The girls started the day but getting our nails did together. It was overall a pretty low key day because it was a small 50 person wedding and the hall set most things up. So we just had to pick up flowers, set up the centre pieces and favours and make sure the backyard was ready to go. We had the rehearsal and then went over to Boston Pizza next to the hotel for the rehearsal dinner.
We also got a gift from Amy at the rehearsal. She got us these beautiful necklaces from the Tyra Handmade Etsy shop and a Starbucks gift card. I love me some Starbucks. But the real star of the show was the flower girl. She got an Elmo in a tux, and she really loved that thing.
So there we have it, the day before the big day. Tomorrow I will have a recap of the actual wedding. On another note, last night was Michaela's rehearsal. I'm doing a reading, and so I got a gift. She got me a gurgle pot! This is why I love her. I had briefly mentioned that I wanted one and she just went out and got it.
