Wedding Details!!

My wedding dress has arrived! WOO!

I struggled with what accessories to buy. Gloves, a purse, shawl, wing tipped boots....oh wait, no. But I really just want simple. I want 16/17 of my closest friends and my family to join Pat and I as we officially declare what we're already privately committed to each other.

My dress is from Roberta Bridal. It is the periwinkle color shown here. The style isn't shown here. But it's adorable, and I love it!!

Mom wanted to know the details, since our invitations have gotten a little tied up. So I thought I'd write it all here for everyone who would like to know!

We arrive in Nevada on April 26th. We're staying at Whiskey Pete's which is a Primm Valley Resort. All 3 resorts are owned by MGM/Mirage. We intend to play some craps, some blackjack, get pretty hammered and enjoy the fact that we're embarking on our official life together, even though we've been together 3 years!

On April 27th we check out of Whiskey Pete's, and head over to the Four Queens in Downtown Las Vegas! We get checked in and then head to McCarran International Airport to pick up our friend, Adrian. Adrian and Pat went to school together and we'll be basically partying it up in Vegas!

My plans include $3 Blackjack at El Cortez, Craps at Casino Royale, walking the strip with a margarita in hand and laughing at the tourists who are taking pictures of the cabs!

On April 28th we're planning a dinner for the friends and families that will be in town on Friday night! We haven't decided yet, but we'll probably go with The Cheesecake Factory or Olive Garden. But a new possibility presented itself last night, when a friend who just recently moved from Vegas recommended the Prime Rib Loft at The Orleans. So we'll see what happens. If you have a preference, please use the comment button below to speak your mind, or feel free to email me.

On Saturday April 29th at 2:30pm at the Shalimar Wedding Chapel Pat and I will exchange vows and make our committment public and official! Immediately after we'll meet outside the chapel for pictures with friends and family and everyone together, and then we'll meet for a reception/dinner around 6:30ish. Pat has told me he has a surprise for me that evening.....perverts!! We'll need to be free sometime around 9:30ish.

Sunday, April 30th we take Adrian to the airport, and head off for home an official married couple!!! WHEEEEEEEEE

May 1st we leave Ridgecrest for San Pedro, where our Royal Caribbean cruise ship, the Monarch of the Seas departs sometime in the evening! Our 4 day cruise will hit San Diego, the island of Catalina, and the Mexican port of Ensenada where we're taking the La Bufadora excursion! Just a small note here. Once, we went to Ensenada to visit family. I remember spending time with my Aunt Becky while everyone else went elsewhere. That time with her is so very special to me, as she was always surrounded by people, but went out of her way to make room and time for little me. I dread going. Anytime I think my aunt, I cry. I miss her. And I love the person that she was, and the strength that she taught me when she was alive.

On May 5th we arrive back in San Pedro, and we start the drive back home!!

I'll be off work from April 24th through May 15th. So I get 2 full weeks of playing housewife and taking care of my honey. We're open to suggestions on times or restaurants for get togethers! There's also lots of cool things to do in Vegas, even if you're not interested in drinking or gambling, which I can NOT understand at all, but to each his own!!

If anyone has any questions, let me know! Here's the list of the invitee's! Not sure if everyone can make it yet!

  • My Mom and Dad (Al and Vicki)
  • My sister and her boyfriend (Beth and Johnny)
  • My brother and sister-in-law (Nathan and Jenelle)
  • Pat's Mom and Dad (John and MariLu)
