The night before we got married was the first night in months that I got a good night's sleep, and I am so grateful the sleeping gods finally decided to be kind to me! I still didn't get eight hours, but I got close which was a blessing.
And just as exciting, when I woke up, the Worst Headache I Have Ever Had in My Life was FINALLY gone! I took an Excedrin later just in case, but my wedding day was totally headache-free. Thank Goodness.
Daniel and I got ready quickly, had to call the front desk when our breakfast didn't show up on time, ate really quickly when it finally showed up, and were out the door by 8am with all the stuff we would need for the day.
As nice as it would have been to relax the morning of our wedding, it just wasn't in the cards for us. We were up bright and early prettying up the reception. We couldn't put everything up in the morning, but we did need to get a few things done.

Getting the escort cards up was the most important thing we needed to get done, but getting them to stay was no easy task. It was foggy, cold, and windy in the morning (typical August day in the Bay Area), and we were afraid the wind would knock the cards off the window. We ended up taping the string to the wall, so it wouldn't move as much, and I found out later someone threw a blanket over the whole thing, so the wind wouldn't touch it. Yay nice people!
We put up some tulle and lights as well and left detailed instructions for the people who would be doing the rest of the set up later that were only partially ignored. Then, I was off to start the long process of prettying myself up for the day ahead.
