S & T2 Wedding Report
S was surprisingly relaxed on the day. We had a lovely girlie time in the morning and early arvo while the dresser did our hair, make-up, and then tucked, draped and pinned our saris into place. S's sari blouse laced up at the back like a corset and one of the eyelets busted while I was strapping her in. I managed to sew it back up enough that it held throughout the night.
The weather was ideal in terms of comfort. It got to 36 degrees C (96 Fahrenheit) the day before, but it was a very comfortable 24 C (75 F) on the day. It rained once when we were in the cars on the way to the first photo shoot, but apart from that, everything went just fine and dandy.
I had been tasked with giving a speech which I tried not to think about too much so as to avoid getting nervous. In the end I wasn't nervous - just teary, and I struggled to make it through the gulps. I've become such a sook in my old age! On the up-side, D told me afterwards that my speech was the best - nice and short!
The quilt went over well. I hope to see it in situ tomorrow at S&T2's for a New Years Eve BBQ.
