Random facts about our wedding and tips!!

OK, so I realized I didn’t give enough details about the wedding and preparations for that magical day! Here’s a few random facts about the amazing day on August 13 2010, the day I became Mrs. Michael Wright!

1. What’s the info on the dress!?!?! I tried on 2 dresses, I didn’t want to drag this it on and get overwhelmed having to choose from like 10 dresses. My mom took me the first time and looked breathless when I walked out in the first dress. It was such a great mother- daughter moment! I picked the second dress after walking around the store for awhile. My brother, Marcus, came for the final fitting and of course added his 2 cents about where my turquoise sash should be lol. Which he was right, his suggestion looked better, having the color around the waist instead of around the bust. My dress was from David’s Bridal. Click here to see the link

Our wedding vows are now up

We have posted our wedding vows for everyone to view. If you wish to read the vows that we wrote for each other please do. Read Our Vows. We are still planning on renewing our vows for next year for our 1st year anniversary. So hoping everything goes to plan so those who were unable to join us for the wedding can hear us renew these same vows next year.

5 days until…The Wedding!!!

The countdown is NOW officially on!!! Everything is set and ready to go. My sweets had his bachelor party today. Thanks to Alfred (best best man), Marcus (my brother) and Josh (friend) for showing Mike a great time! My best friend Raekel is flying in from NYC on Wednesday. We’re going to have cupcakes, great food, a few drinks and dancing! I’m super excited! The fun has just begun!!! Hugs to all!!!!

Everything Is Set & Moving Along

All locations are set. We have the location for the ceremony and the reception set.

Just to recap, we are having our ceremony right on the sandy shores of Atlantic Beach at Visions Events and Beyond.

Now we have found the restaurant for where we are having the ceremony. Its Floyd’s 1921 just across the bridge in Morehead City.

Back To The Beach – Get Our Grub On

We are heading back to the beach to try to figure out restaurants. We had a couple of places in mind but one place is out because of where the private room is. It’s up two flights of stairs…so onto the other place. It also had a private room with a separate entrance, and it seemed like it was going to be just right. At the time we looked at the restaurant, we were unable to talk to the owner or a manger that could of assisted us with setting up the event. So we grabbed the event packet and left our information for an owner or manager to contact us to get more information. After a few days, nothing, nada, zip. So after trying to contact them with no luck either. I had my best man try to get in touch with them.

Luckily he was able to and got some more info. After transferring that info to my parents they were gonna set it up. Well it just so happens, they don’t book events on Friday or Saturday, and that they say they do 5,000 a night on those nights. These supposed facts are very odd considering two things. One – in their event packet we were given it said they host events any day of the week…Two – when we went in to their establishment on a Friday during dinner hours there wasn’t a soul in the place other than the hostess and some cooks. My parents were also told that the packet we were given was put together before they had the private room…OK STOP WAIT….I looked through that packet and there were pictures of the private room in there…so that was a flat out lie. Then the suggestions that were given were just bad…one of the suggestions was that we could reserve the outside upstairs deck…yeah that wont happen. The next suggestion which was the one that just makes me scratch my head and ask what the hell was he thinking….he said that we could have our dinner BEFORE the wedding…just what in anyone’s smart head would think that would be a good idea for a wedding? So that suggestion was out.

The only other idea that was given is that we could pay the $5,000 to book that private room AND pay for the food. That is insane and out of the question.

So now we have a couple more restaurants in line that we are going to check out and try their food. We know which place we like and they were very nice and professional. Wish us luck.

Everyone Get Ready For Next Year!!!!

So, many of you know that we booked our location at the beach for August 13th 2010, this is going to be a very small & intimate wedding with basically family only.

I know many of you are sad,  BUT WAIT THERE’S MORE!!!! For our one year anniversary on Saturday August 13th 2011, we will be renewing our vows & will be celebrating with friends along with our family. We will be whipping out the dance floor and rockin’ out with a DJ. So be prepared to jump in the soul train line. We haven’t finalized the location yet since we are still preparing for our wedding but we know its gonna be awesome.

wedding/prom tux confusion!?!?!

This is a funny story I forgot to post so just doing that now.

A few weeks ago my mom came up from Atl to help with wedding stuff…Well one of the places we went to was Men’s Warehouse to show her colors and outfits. So we were there for a few mins and then a lady who worked there walked up to us and said “Looking to rent a tux?” and we were like yes but im just showing her colors and outfits. And she said “Getting ready for prom huh?” Both my mom just stopped in our tracks and i was like ummm no…Im kinda past prom like 11 years past. (god that makes me feel old) and said this is for a tux for my wedding. She was like oh….well congrats and walked away, im guessing embarrassed.

Im guessing with all my tattoos all over my arms and my beard i look like every other 17 year old high school student. Im not sure if i take that as a compliment or not lol. Oh well, just another day in the adventure of the planning of our wedding.
