Its been exactly a year since I last attended a wedding. And today was one of my very good friend and ex-classmate, Daphne’s.
We were honoured when she informed us some months back that we were her first choice of bridesmaids (lol, I suddenly feel like a product). Although we did gasped a little and frantic around to do some last minute shopping at the nearby heartland mall on Friday night when she told us about her purple-themed wedding though. Especially Fi & me, thank goodness for the existence of many blogshops that saved us the hassle of shopping for a dress at least!
Well, I think I must have gotten too excited about being involved in Daphne’s wedding (that include sabotaging the groom & his band of brothers) that I couldn’t sleep till 2am. Woke up at 4am because the weather was acting up (apparently its because it was about to rain hence the extreme humidity). Slept back again at 4.30am and then up for real at 5.50am to get ready. Picked the girls up at 7am in the heavy pouring rain, reached the bride’s house at 7.30am and got busy trying to prepare 3 main tasks for the groom to tackle before he was allowed to see the bride.
Thankfully I was able to catch a nap for 2-3 hours in the afternoon before getting dressed for the cocktail reception & dinner later that evening. I could feel my lids getting really heavy and in desperate need of sleep towards the end of the morning session.
Anyway, just wanted to say I had fun. It was a beautiful albeit almost teary one as I watched my good friend grace down the aisle all smiles.
J&D, here’s wishing both of you lots of joy, bliss & laughter in your marriage.
