Getting Ready for the Do You Takes
This coming Saturday is my cousin's big wedding. All four of us are in the wedding. So, yes, things have been a little crazy trying to get everything ready. I've been making sure the boys were fitted, picking up their tuxes and making sure they have the right socks and shoes. AP and I have been fitted and refitted and finally have our dresses steamed and ready to wear. We have the right shoes and AP has just the right tights. We all have rehearsal dinner outfits planned, even down to a new matching bow :) (for AP not me). Wedding gift has been purchased, but not wrapped. Hair appts have been made. My mom and sis and their crews will be here late Thursday night so I am trying to tie up loose ends before then.
Today was spent on a search for winter dress shoes for C. His foot is THREE sizes bigger than it was last fall/winter. I went to NINE stores today and left empty handed. I couldn't find a decent winter dress shoe in a size 13 to save my life. I got a few suggestions from my Facebook friends and will try that tomorrow. I also still need to figure out what to do with AP's hair in the wedding. She is the flower girl and has a flower halo to wear. The problem is that her hair is so fine that I have no idea how I am going to attach the flowers. There is no way bobby pins would stay. Any suggestions? Maria, I thought about trying sponge rollers like you did with Ellie.
