Recap 1: The rehearsal and dinner
I decided way before the wedding to not sweat the small stuff because after all, when life hands you lemons? You make lemonade.
The rehearsal was really the first snafu of the wedding. We knew we were going to have an after party, so we sent the best man and one of the groomsmen on a booze run.
Of course they decided to go out to Virginia. So of course they sat in traffic for almost an hour. Then! OF COURSE they decided to take showers upon arriving back at the hotel five minutes before the rehearsal was scheduled to start resulting in not one, but FOUR of the groomsmen to be thirty minutes late.
Our priest was none too pleased.
Dinner was delicious. The room was fabulous, we didn't do assigned seating, we didn't really have speeches except from Mr. GP's father.
It was a family style dinner, with round tables seating about eight or so at each - we had nearly forty people at the rehearsal dinner.
For dessert, we picked out about 3 dozen cupcakes from Hello Cupcake - a big hit with the guests.
