While I was busy getting ready and finishing up the final touches on the wedding itself, my girls had to get ready too! =) I did not require them to get their hair and makeup done by the makeup artist I hired, but they were more than welcome to if they chose to. I was very pleased with how we all looked. Everyone kept true to their own style and I loved it!
P.S. — If you’re in the Tampa area, consider Michelle Renee Hair and Makeup. They did a GREAT job on my hair and makeup (obviously, the photos don’t do it enough justice!) and they did good work on some of my ladies and family members as well. :)
The always fabulous Jamie.
Christine works her cocktail ring.
Deanna looks mighty fine in aqua. :D
Now…since I had originally wanted my girls to carry smaller brooch bouquets as well… you can imagine the stress that set in the week of the wedding when I realized that it wasn’t going to happen. Realistically, there was just not enough time and I did not have the patience to create the rest of them (Some of my bridesmaids had helped earlier in the wedding planning stages). So… I did what any of you would have done in this situation.
No, I didn’t buy flowers.

The one shoulder ruffled dresses came from Lulus (and have since sold out!). Modcloth carried the aqua one for a hot second, but again, it disappeared.
The two other ladies in aqua are in J. Crew with my lady in aqua with the brooch at her hip… a last minute dress find at Ross. No, really. Seriously. It was two days before the wedding and the original J. Crew I wanted her in just wasn’t working out!
The week before the wedding I got a tattoo! We also had our beach rehearsal before having dinner, handing out bridal party gifts, and a wild after party. The morning of the wedding, I got ready and my girls worked it for the camera.
