First time for everything

SO this past weekend I was in a wedding as a bridesmaid for the first time, The first wedding I was ever in was my own, I think that made it even more exciting and special but anywho...this wedding I was in was beautiful and well thought out.  I had an awesome weekend and I know its already Wednesday and I'm just barely recapping my weekend buuut I have been known to procrastinate.

I got into Austin on Friday morning at 9am, I woke up at 4 am so I could get ready, head out and not hit Houston traffic.  When I got to Austin I was two hours early for the bridesmaid brunch which was at 11 so I checked in to my hotel, and drove around Austin I went to Starbucks, bought an umbrella, bought some jewelry for the wedding on Saturday, and bought a comb...pretty random I know but that's how I roll.

At 11 I headed to the nail salon where the bridesmaid brunch was held, it was the most adorable little salon ever!!! It was called embellish nails and it was all pink and sparkly which if something is pink and sparkly I'm totally there!!

This was a chandelier that was hanging in the entryway at the salon

Then we had some time to kill so we went back to the hotel, rested, and got ready for the rehearsal dinner

The rehearsal dinner was at The Salt Lick, it was deeeeeelicious, I love some good barbecue, and this was indeed, Julie (the bride) had arranged charter busses for the whole weekend (complete with Sam Adams on board) to take guests and wedding party to all the events since everything was pretty spread out and since mucho drinkin would be involved it was safer, and I must say the buses were an awesome idea

Here's the Mr and Mrs to be, with the sign The Salt Lick had for the party

The tables were all set up so cute with custom cups and bandannas

As a wedding gift the bride and groom got matching belts with their adorable

We got back to the hotel and the hubs was supposed to fly out of Houston to meet me at 10 pm welll his flight was very delayed and he got to the hotel at 3 am!!! I had to be up at 630 to be at the hair salon by 730...the trend here is very little sleep was had this weekend

The salon we had our hair and makeup done at was super cute and they did an awesome job on some of the girls' hair but I was NOT pleased with my hair and I fixed my makeup when I got back to the hotel but that's besides the point it was fun hangin out with all the girls and such

Me all done up...prior to my minor tweaks later
( My hair is not how I wanted it AT ALL, it didn't match picture I showed her in the slightest, but I suppose it looked ok, anyways it wasn't about me as it wasn't my wedding and Julie looked so beautiful and that's what mattered)

More sparkly chandelier love

We went back to the hotel because once again we had a ton of down time before we had to catch the bus and head to the church 

Soon enough we headed to the church to get the bride dressed and ready to head down the isle...she was absolutely beautiful!!!


Me and my bridesmaid friend

The ceremony was beautiful and once again after the ceremony we had about an hour and half down time so we went back to the hotel bar for a lil bit until we had to go to the reception which was beautiful it was at a place called Austin 71 and it was up on this hill and let me tell you the sunset was AHHHMAAAZING!!

Here's me and the hubs at the reception

Congratulations Julie and Ryan your wedding weekend was Fabulous and I wish you only the best!!!
