Wedding weekend success

Well, the wedding weekend of Dave's little brother was a success.  The weather was beautiful and everything went off without a hitch.  I'm going to do a few posts throughout the week of "recaps" of the wedding, including some pictures and possibly a video or two!

In the meantime, here's a picture of the happy bride and groom, who will be referred to in future posts as "Lil H" and "Happy P," since I'm not sure how they feel about having their real names used.

And I'm sure you're ALL wondering.... after the huge debate, which dress did I wear? 

Yep - the brown one!  After losing two pounds and finding some amazing and inexpensive tights at Target that helped shaped my waist, the dress fit like a glove.  I was able to sit AND eat and drink without any discomfort.   And see that classy bruise there on my arm?  That is the bruise from the H1N1 vaccine that I got over 11 days ago!!!!  Can you believe that it's still that dark?  I was going to Photoshop it out for this picture, but decided to leave it in just to show you how dark it still was.   And also because it was a major focal point of the night - I don't think a single person spoke to me the entire day who didn't ask about that bruise (or rather, said jokingly something like, "Where'd you get that bruise? Is Dave hitting you again?).  It was a major conversation starter that I would rather have not had.

I initially wore the brown shoes that debuted in the original dress post at the hotel and to the ceremony. But after standing in them for nearly two hours, my feet were killing me and I knew that I would not be able to stand in them during the cocktail hour and dance for three hours.  So, between the ceremony and reception I went back to the hotel and traded in the 3 and 1/2 inch heels for a pair of more modest 2 and 1/2 inch brown wedges.  That one inch made all of the difference and I was able to dance in them the entire night.

In case you needed evidence of that...

So stay tuned! More wedding pictures coming soon!
