By now it’s 11:30ish and I’m in my parent’s hotel room wandering around in my corseted bra and jeans, ready to complete the transition into a Bride. Mom Sword is dressed and ready to rock and roll, but we are waiting for Sister/MOH Big Eyes to finish getting her hair done before I can change. Laura and her hair and makeup team could only work so fast with a list of 10 gals to get ready for a wedding!
I remember our cinematographer asking me if Mr. Sword would care that he was seeing me in my underwear and I had to laugh as I reassured him that Mr. Sword is the least jealous person I’ve ever met. He takes it as a compliment if someone hits on me, and he’s so laid back that he doesn’t get worked up over little things like a wedding videographer seeing me in my bra and panties. Which is pretty much ideal for someone like myself who will post practically anything on the internet. Awkward.
As I stared at myself in the mirror (to pass the time of course) we realized I wasn’t wearing my tiara or veil on, oops! Laura came over to my parent’s room and she glam’d me up in no time.
The below picture describes my sister and I’s loving but funny relationship: Me looking at myself in a mirror like the princess I am and her questioning me with those BIG EYES! 🙂
This was also the moment I first saw my bouquet.
YUM. Our bouquets were insane. Everyone was in love with them, myself included.
(The bridesmaid bouquets looked just as lovely and you’ll see them when I recap our bridal party portraits.)
For someone who didn’t put flowers very high on the list of priorities, who went to ONE florist, and who had no idea what she was doing when ordering, I’m pretty sure they turned out perfectly. Glamorous and dramatic, our flowers fit our day and theme beautifully. I couldn’t have dreamed of anything better.

Up next, I finally step into my wedding gown! 🙂
Anyone else wear a tiara or plan on wearing one? How lucky did I get with my bridal bouquet!?!
