Craig and I hopped in the car after work and drove to Wilmington to see and stay with some of our best friends before their beautiful baby boy arrives!
6:50 a.m. wake up call
7:00 a.m. hair and make up begins
7:15 a.m. mimosas, because why not? Our girls getting married!
11:00 a.m. off to the Basilica Shrine of Saint Mary to take pictures
12:00 find any scraps of food we can for lunch (TIP FOR THE WISE: always have food around, because your blood sugar will start dropping after a long day of preparation, and although it's the last thing on your mind because there is so much going on, it's definitely something to remember).
2:00 TIE THE KNOT!
5:00-6:29 Sweat anxiously while waiting until you have to give your MOH speech
6:30 Wow everyone with the most amazing speech (Fresh Prince of Bell Air rap)
Step one: Understand your relationship; is it funny? is it serious? is it silly? is it sensitive?
Step two: Make your speech more about the bride, groom and their marriage, and less about you and the bride, because not everyone understands your relationship
Step three: DEFINITELY put some jokes in there that everyone will understand. If there is an animal/pet/food that they are obsessed with talk about that. If there is a trait that one of them has joke about that! If there is a family member that everyone knows with a specific characteristic shout them out.
Step four: Briefly get sensitive by talking about how much you love them together, how they inspire you, and/or how much you believe in them and their future
Step five: Tell everyone the story of how they met (unless it would stir up any problems)
Step six: Throw something embarrassing in there if you can, but nothing over the top that would humiliate them, and definitely nothing about exes!
Step seven: End with a bang, either an emotional toast, or an amazing joke or life tip to help their marriage; something everyone will remember, because people really only ever remember the beginning and ends of lectures/speeches! In my case, it was a rap to the Fresh Prince of Bell Air. #killedit #mikedrop
