Our Pawfect Wedding: Getting Ready

I woke up the next morning and went right to the hotel! I left some instructions for Mr Pug and a card and left him sleeping blissfully. Girls gotta get ready yo!

Here's the hotel we got ready at, our guests stayed at, and Mr P and I stayed at that night.

I LOVED The Omni, mostly because of the event person I worked with, Sara Thomas. She was seriously one of the best vendors I worked with this whole time.

I got my hair done before, well, anyone really was there. My bridesmaids, mom, aunt, aunt's best friend, and greeters trickled in. We helped each other paint the bridesmaids' nails, since I got them the nail polish in their bag and asked them to wear it. Here I am doing MOH R's nails...

I called them "talons" and she may or may not have known what that meant, thus my face.

Bridesmaid L was wearing peep toes, so she only did what was 100% necessary!

The room we got ready in was the room Mr P and I stayed in that night. It was a bi-level suite overlooking the southwest side of downtown.

Below is Lucas Oil Stadium, where the Colts play!

While this all went on, my makeup artist was getting us all pretty. Here's bridesmaid A:


Bridesmaid H:*

We had one heck of a spread!

Since I love you, blogger friends, here I am pre-makeup. Ew.

Crystal is a ridiculously amazing makeup artist.

My day-of makeup turned out even better than I imagined. I was really impressed with everything from the coverage to the eyelashes!

PS isn't Crystal so pretty? Her company is Beauty by Crystal.

A job well done!

Meanwhile, my girls got ready. Here Em does bridesmaid L's hair.

And AP does her makeup.

Em did her makeup as well.

We all finished our makeup and hair-dos and got ready for all the pictures! But before that... there were tons of details and a certain DRESS named Paige...
