After the rehearsal we were all off to the rehearsal dinner (duh).
We got there and the cocktail hour was just fun socializing with everyone there and chatting about the wedding and an open bar was quite a hit as well. Eventually I took my bridesmaids aside and gave them their gifts and thanked all of my ladies and it was just so special to me that they were all there. After cocktails we had a freaking delicious dinner and then there were speeches, oh were their speeches.
And of course there were pictures!
After the rehearsal we all headed back to our respective hotels and rooms and what not (Matt and the boys went to one and I went back to our suite) and my friends surprised me with lots of champagne in my room and it was just so fun!!
Seriously I’m not even kidding though, so much champagne and fun music and eventually we went down to the hotel bar where we ran into a ton of my out of town family so that was just a party all around. Pretty much we closed the place down (well my friends and family did becuase I was psuedo responsible and finally went to bed around 12 or 1).
Basically it was a perfect night with lots of people I love before the big day!
