Everything about today’s guest blogger makes me smile. I like her face, and her cute babies/cute baby names, I like that she is from Texas, and I think its super cool that she lives with her family in Brazil. I also would have really liked to have gone to her wedding because it looks beauty and fun and magical. If you feel like you need a warm virtual hug, go over to My Little Happy Place and tell her I say “hello”.
Thank you so much for post, Alison!
I was delighted when Bailey asked me to participate in her guest post series about weddings, as I love recalling my own! My husband and I were married six years ago in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico. Our guest list was rather small, but we spent three days with everyone before our Big Day, enjoying the company, and the amazing, Colonial Mexican town that is San Miguel. It was our version of perfect, and I wouldn’t change a thing!
I have so many great memories, but one of the funniest was when one of the fireworks from our celebration dudded out, and shot like a rocket straight into the home above our reception. This picture captures our reaction pretty well (if only we could’ve seen that homeowner’s face!)
The best wedding advice I can give, based on our experience, is to enjoy some time with your guests before your actual wedding day. That way, you will have gotten some of the obligatory chit chat out of the way, and you’ll have more time at your wedding to really absorb each other, and the day.
