The Wedding.

As I mentioned some months ago, my friend asked me to be a bridesmaid in her wedding. Well, the wedding was this weekend! I survived. It was fun, but exhausting. 

The worst part? Definitely the all the photos. 





Hey, who doesn't want to take photos when you're all dressed up, amirite?



Well, it turns out there's a limit to how many photos one can take, no matter how rockin' their hair is. 


It didn't help that the photographer was a bit of an asshole. 



Photos are exhausting. We took a bunch at the hotel, and then at the church, and then at the reception site. 





Yep, we had to go outside where it was about 300% humidity and just very...wet. 




Too. Many. Kids.

Anyway, the photos finally ended and we all got to go enjoy the reception and the four hour hard liquor open bar.

  1. The worst part about wedding photos is that you can't complain about the photos they choose to share even though it's the worst photo of you. My brother-in-law learned how to frame photos on his own just for the purpose of gifting us with a framed photo from his wedding with me looking like a bridge troll. Give me edit power before you go learning how to frame.

  3. Ahhh, I'm actually pretty glad i'm past the "every weekend is a wedding weekend" phase in my life. Now I just get to be a guest now and then. That photographer sounds kinda douchey. Glad you got to drink after :)

  4. Happy to hear you had some fun. I agree that the picture taking feels like a chore...a very long tedious chore. When my daughter got married I was torn between telling the photographer "enough already" or have him take 10,000 photos. For what they charge there should be lots and lots of pretty pictures.

  5. Sounds like you really earned that open bar!

  6. I was the reverend in my cohort's wedding, which means that I'm in almost none of the pictures. The photographer thought that I 'clashed' with the pictures since I didn't dress up like any of the groomsmen and therefore stood out, so he didn't let me get in any of them. The plus - didn't have to deal with any of crap you went through. The minus - I'm in almost none of my best friend's wedding pictures and just look like the guy they hired to officiate.

  7. HA! Gives a whole new meaning to your "Yay booze!" comment on my blog.

    Having to wear a fake smile for all those pictures would have been sheer torture for me. I hate to have my picture taken. One, I can tolerate. Then I'm done. I didn't even hire a photographer when my hubby and I got married. (Of course, that WAS back in the Dark Ages...)

  8. Going to a wedding in Texas in October.
    They can take all the pictures they like, but it better not be a cash bar.

  10. Oh man. The last wedding I was at it was late November and had just snowed a bit, and the photographer still called all the bridesmaids and the bride outside in their strapless gowns for photos. *shiver*

    This post was great. And your hair does look very pretty like that. :-)
