Tea at The Plaza

 Sweater.  Skirt.  Earrings.  More details down below…

From Mom’s dress fittings in Chicago we flew to New York for mine.  We seemed to have brought the dreary, rainy weather from Chicago, but we didn’t mind so much.  All we cared about was seeing my wedding dress for the first time… What would it look like?!

When I saw my dress for the first time my heart fluttered.  It was perfect.  When I had first seen the sample of my dress it was simply the designer’s idea; a sample she had made to see if brides liked it.  My finished dress was 100 times more beautiful than the sample dress I had tried on months and months earlier.  I absolutely loved it and never wanted to take it off.

I was happy and thankful to head back to The Plaza for tea with my mother to celebrate such a special moment.  Tea at The Plaza is truly an experience; after choosing your selected combination of sandwiches, pastries, and scones, you choose a tea from The Plaza’s impressive selection.  Mom went with the wintery Silver Needles and I chose a floral Jasmine.  Everything was absolutely delicious.

We were so cozy and satisfied we were hesitant to leave the hotel and venture out into the cold snow for our afternoon activity: The Rockettes’ Christmas Spectacular in Radio City Music Hall.

Hope you all are staying warm and ready for Christmas!!  I know I am… I can’t wait to see my family!!

    Hypoglycemia, most likely started it. You were fine when you were nervous and excited. The hormones were artificially keeping your blood sugar up. Then relaxing and having to stand pushed you too far and your sugar crashed. That's why you were starving after.
    So, on your wedding day, eat something with protein and fat like eggs and cheese. Not too much sugar and no alcohol until after. That will keep your blood sugar stable.

    I totally experienced this each and every dress fitting prior to my wedding 3 months ago! I think it is just an overwhelming experience, emotions, and excitement. The day of my wedding all my bridesmaids thought something was wrong because I was so calm and relaxed (so not me). You will be fine 🙂 Enjoy the process!!


    • You did?! Glad I'm not the only one!! 🙂 Congratulations and best wishes on your marriage!! I hope and pray I'm relaxed on the wedding day… After all this time and effort I think it would be wonderful to just sit back and relax!! Happy Holidays!! xoxo
