On the day of your wedding, I’ve heard it’s “unlucky” to see each other before you walk down the aisle. But Anthony and I threw that rule out the window and laced up our running shoes instead.Because who doesn’t want to break a sweat before the big day begins?!
We donned our best faces and set out for an easy three miles ;).Even though the day of your wedding can be pretty hectic, I advise you to take some time and do something routine and relaxing — by yourself, with your friends, or with your soon-to-be-spouse! It was so nice to enjoy a simple and quite hour with Anthony before the party began.I must say my husband has an excellent foot strike.
After our little run, we parted ways. I joined the girls for some hair and makeup at Babe Beauty Bar in Nashville’s Hillsboro Village.My sister organized an awesome spread of sandwiches and champagne to keep us motivated!Meanwhile, the boys were having a few drinks too…And playing cards…And getting shaves! The pros at Moose Lounge made the whole crew look handsome. Side note: face shaving looks scary. I’m glad I’m a girl.Back to the girls. We headed to the church to put on our party dresses!Anthony and I kept a pretty open wardrobe scheme for our wedding and allowed the bridal party to wear anything in the blue-purple-navy-grey category. I loved how everyone got to show their personality and style!
I also opted for less traditional, eclectic bouquets — that featured pins from my grandmothers’ brooch collections!My mom looked especially fabulous, thanks to the help of another great hair/makeup artist in Nashville (and more thanks to her natural beauty of course).I peeked out the door — just in time to see the boys start to arrive!
