Today when Mom and Katie and I were at Busy B's Wholesale Flowers, we got a call from Jessica at Seacoast (she's the one helping with the ceremony). She had bad news... For some reason, they double booked our wedding date and time! She said that the other couple had had it booked for longer, so we were going to have to move ours. At first, I was really worried and nervous because it was a change and frankly, I am a control freak. But, after about 2.3 minutes of needless worry, I found something really positive about this! Even though I am going to have to bump my wedding time up to 4 o'clock pm, I am going to get something I really wanted and thought wouldn't happen! Because Billy and I will be leaving the reception later than planned (we were going to have the wedding at 1 pm), it will be dark outside.... which means... drumroll.............. SPARKLERS! I so badly wanted sparklers when we left the reception, because I think that they look beautiful in pictures and plus they're so fun! It might seem like something small, but it totally made me excited, and I had to find something good about switching the wedding time to 3 hours later!
Oh, and something really funny... we had to special-request to have our Rehearsal Dinner on Thursday, October 15... The Richards wouldn't dare do anything to interrupt Friday night High School Football, not even for a wedding. I guess that's what we get for having a close-knit family that has its roots in Texas and South Carolina. Football is our Trump Card! But don't get me wrong... I love it!
