Back to Reality

So, my extra long weekend has come to an end. I'm back to work, back to reality but filled with great memories, love and happiness.

This is me in my beautiful fuschia bridesmaid dress. Get this, it even has pockets!
This is my date giving a speech. He flew in just for the wedding! So excited.

I mentioned here that I thought about trying a braided hairstyle for the wedding. I initially thought of having my hair down with just a braided headband, however the bride wanted us all to have updos. A long smooth side ponytail was as close as I could come to an updo. I was then going to do a braid at the front that went into the pony, I was going to do a little bump at the top but any time I tried them it just didn't look like me. I didn't want to be something I wasn't for the sake of getting done up. I compromised with doing my own hair and having a professional do my make-up, since they know what works best for photography, etc. I was celebrating with tons of good friends and my boyfriend's family as well and I wanted to be as much of myself as I could. It's different when you're going out and you don't know anyone, do something wild, try something new but this was a day where I felt beautiful, comfortable and had fun being me with people I love.

Here are the newly weds giving their thank you toast.

The groom has some Indian heritage and so they will be having a traditional Indian wedding this coming weekend. Those pictures should be a lot more colourful. Being part of the bridal party it was hard for me to get any decent pictures of everything going on, so these are just from my Blackberry. Yes, I still have a Blackberry, ha! One of these days (once my contract expires) I will be converted to the almighty iPhone.

I hope everyone had a great weekend and is enjoying the summer. I'll be back with more excitement once I fully recover from the weekend.
