Wedding Weekend Itinerary

SO the big wedding weekend is finally upon us! I can remember (way back when to 5 months ago) being SO excited on the Thursday before all the big hoopla started. I think I had more fun at my wedding than anyone else. It was just such a great time to see family and friends and realize all the effort that everyone else put into making your big day special for you. I wasn't stressed out at all and it was so much fun just to enjoy everything and everyone. I hope that my sister will realize that everything is done and it is time to sit back and enjoy the party!! It is all for them after all!!

Today is sort of the calm before the storm I suppose. Deaner will be here in less than 4 hours!! Can you tell I am counting down the hours? One of my oldest friends is coming to scoop me up to eat pizza for lunch so we can do some gossiping and catching up. Then I will head down to the airport to fetch my husband!! The rest of our day will consist of dropping Deaner's luggage off at home, picking up his tuxedo for the wedding, and meeting his mother for dinner so he can get his fill of Margaritas and Mexican food! My sister's future in-laws are having dinner with my family tonight but since Deaner will not really be able to see his mother while he is here, we are meeting her instead. I'm sure we will make it back on the tail end of dinner to meet everyone (and to see my baby cousin Thomas of course! See super cute picture above!)

Tomorrow morning the Bridesmaid's Luncheon will be held at the Swan Coach House. How pretty is it??The only problem is that they only serve CHICKEN SALAD and y'all must know by now how I feel about chicken salad!!! :) The rehearsal dinner is being held at Park Tavern in Midtown and I think that it has one of the best views of the city skyline in all of Atlanta. Obviously this picture was taken during some sort of event and the festival like tents won't be in the park but you get the idea!The Church where they are getting married is the same one where Deaner and I got married. I love it and it is the church where we grew up and went to grade school even.The reception is going to be at my parent's country club where we also spent a gracious amount of time growing up! I am sort of irritated because I can't find a picture of the FRONT of the place. I have no idea why all the pictures are of the back of the club house. That sort of seems dumb to me! I will definitely take some pictures of my own but here is what the BACK of the club looks like if you are interested! HA!And there you have it. All the venues of the weekend! Hopefully I will be able to post pictures as we go along but y'all know how it gets and I'm expecting to stay busy! Right now I have to go because my mom is requesting that I clean the bathroom I have been using for all of 6 days, as if it is not pristine as it is!! More later!!
