Day before the wedding

The day before the wedding (Friday) Rillz had his little "bachelor" party with some friends and family. They all went golfing. The guys were gone for 6 hours! Don't worry guys, I can finish all the last wedding details myself. :) I made the ring bearer pillow and flower girl wristlet the day before. I honestly had no idea for either. I stopped at an awesome craft store and just walked around lots of times until I got ideas. My problem was both of them just turned one years old. A typical ring bearer pillow is about as big as Brecken and a flower girl basket would just get thrown or dropped. This is what I came up with...

Both just went on the babies wrists. I honestly don't even know how long they lasted on them. They aren't the cutest things but when time is running out you just do what you gotta do.

After making those I went and had a manicure/pedicure with my mom, Kristi, and Nan. That was nice and relaxing. Then we went and ate. It was about 4:30 by now and I still didn't have my bridesmaids shoes and I had to be at the hotel by 6:30 to deliver the wedding favors. I was stressing a little. Luckily, Payless shoes was right next door and Kristi and I found a pair that was pretty cute! So off we raced to the house to grab everything for the wedding and quickly drive 45 min. to the hotel. We made it there about 6:35.

We met up with Rillz at the hotel because he had just gotten done golfing and was already in Honolulu (where the hotel is).

This is a picture of Pacific Beach Hotel where our reception was and where we stayed night before wedding and wedding night.

That night Rillz, Kristi, and I met up with Beang (a cousin) to help with seating charts and then the 3 of us went to McDonalds for some food.
Kristi and I stayed in a hotel room together that night. It was fun just talking until we both fell asleep around 11:00. The only thing that I missed was Heidi being there too. I just love my sisters so much. They are my best friends!
Next post... wedding day!

For one year wedding props, I think they turned out as best they could. I think Brecken actually wore his for quite a while and didn't even seem to notice it. Heidi was the only thing missing. I sure love my sister's too!
