Confessions: Wedding Edition

Time to hook back up for a short confessions with Kathy since I'm still on island time and moving very slowly....but let's wedding things up a bit with these confessions!


+ I confess that really nothing went wrong at the wedding aside for a couple of people getting a little too white boy wasted and only added to the stories to laugh at later.

+ I confess that I couldn't get into my dress fast enough....and was staring it down while calming my nerves with many glasses of wine..on an empty stomach.


But when I finally did slip into it...game on.


 + I confess I needed a drink...or two...right before the ceremony...


+ I confess that I had the best bridesmaids a girl could have. From needing a drink, to pinning things where they needed to be pinned and such...they were awesome. Seems like only yesterday that the rehearsal took place!


+ I confess that the officiant could have been speaking in Japanese and I wouldn't have noticed since I was so fixated on Josh and so lost in the moment.


+ I confess that I really wanted to punch Mother Nature in the boob for making it rain all week and the morning of the wedding day so we decided to take photos inside. I still can't wait to the professional photos though! 


+ I confess that I have zero regrets about any of the decisions I made during the planning process and the venue and staff were AMAZE-balls throughout the whole night. If anyone is having a wedding in the Chicago area and looking for a reception site, The Abbington Distinctive Banquets is your place!!

+ I confess that I almost pulled a Jennifer Lawrence up the stairs BUT I survived the walk up and didn't end up tripping over my dress! Success!!! Even though my dad was walking too fast and I stepped on my dress several times, I couldn't help but have the  biggest smile on my face.


+ I confess that although I didn't cry a waterfall of tears when my dad gave me away, I did shed some tears and smudged awesome foundation on my dad's tux during the father/daughter dance.

+ I confess that I smashed cake in Josh's face first and boy did he get me back. It wasn't planned at all, we just went for it. I'm glad we did too since it was delicious and I didn't have a chance to stuff my face with a slice of it later on.

+ I confess that while I was all nervous and crying about changing my name, I couldn't be happier to hear "Mrs. G" everywhere I go now. Josh and I have the best families that show nothing but their love and support! 


+ Oh and one last confession...yes I along with my bridesmaids danced to NSYNC's "Bye, Bye, Bye" and didn't skip ONE choreographed move during the reception. Again, I love them so flippin' much. :D

I'm also linking up with my girl Fitness Blondie for Hump Day! Go check her out!!!
