Pre-wedding Freak-out

I went into the hair salon two days ago to get my highlights touched up and came out a dark brunette. The woman said she had to even things out. I thought she meant with lowlights. I went in the next day to see if they could at least add some highlights back in. They gave me orange streaks. I AM NOT A HAPPY BRIDE. I have an emergency appointment at my Grandmother's (reputable) salon this afternoon to see if they can make me beautiful again. Pray my hair doesn't fall out.

After that, I have to get my nails done and then I have to run home to finish place cards. Tomorrow I'm working and then meeting up with two girlfriends, also Bloggers (Guess who!), for much deserved drinks. Friday is more work, followed by the rehearsal. Then Hoop and I have to split ways until the big day... SATURDAY. Holy shit, I'm getting married on Saturday! When did that happen? Didn't we just get engaged? I've lost five pounds in the last seven days. Did you know that getting married was the perfect weight loss regimen?

I wouldn't recommend this for the faint of heart though... or the faint of wallet. This is hands-down the most expensive five pounds I've ever lost. I'm hoping to gain it all back with cake. Mmmmm, cake. I'm not going to be on much for the rest of this week, if at all. Please don't take my silence as a sign that I don't love you. I'm just afraid to open my mouth, lest I start screaming and never stop. Just know that you all are in my thoughts, and please, let my hair be in yours. I'll try and pop on before the wedding to let you know that everything is OK and that I haven't run away.

Until then, have fun, be safe, and don't you dare touch the beer in the fridge.

Much Love,

Enjoy, Tink! I'll be thinking of you (and your hair!) Wishes from across the country for a beautiful, fabulous, super fun day--can't wait to read all about it!

Oh my goodness!! I am nervous for you! Good luck with the hair, but you will beautiful either way.

A tip for you:

Men are very direct. If you're pissed off about something hoop did, and he asks you whats wrong, and you say "fine", he'll think everything is fine.

Tell him "you did x and that made me mad and this is why"

And he will fix it an apologize

And your marriage will be so smooth and loving you won't believe it.


At 05 November, 2008, Blogger fiwa said...

I will pray to the Flying Spaghetti Monster to fix your hair. It will all be ok - and by Saturday night you will be a married woman! And you can ROLL in cake if ya wanna!

Love you girl - I'll be thinking about you.

*hug* *passes shot glass of tequila*

Good luck with the hair and with everything else! I'll be thinking of you guys all week and especially on Saturday. :)

Good luck with the hair! Maybe you should go with a different hair dresser next time.

I wish you a lifetime of happiness, Tink! You deserve it!

Love to you!!

I have faith your grandma's hair salon can save your hair.

I remember my grandma getting after me to stop losing weight before my wedding as she had to keep taking my gown in!

Take a DEEP breath. There will be glitches, that's what will make your wedding memorable. In twenty years you won't be talking about how perfectly everything went off, you'll talk about the funny things that happened that seemed so horrible at the time.

It will be wonderuful...I'm so very happy for you.

At 05 November, 2008, Blogger Sunshine said...

You'll be gorgeous and lovely and you WILL have a lot of fun, I promise!

I lost a ton of stress weight before my wedding too, I was skin and bones but it came back, have the extra cake!!

At 05 November, 2008, Blogger LL said...

Damn... all these arbitrary rules you keep foisting upon us... can we at least borrow a beer if we promise to pay you back?

You need to remind Hoop that this was all his idea too and lord it over him for the next... oh... 75 years or so...

Best wishes to you Tink, and may your life be filled with happiness and cake. ;)

At 05 November, 2008, Blogger Arabella said...

Yay, Tink! You are beautiful now and always!

My best wedding-day advice: laugh and smile all day; you'll have more fun that way, and your pictures will be gorgeous.

At 05 November, 2008, Blogger Lynnea said...

Wait? There's beer left in the fridge? Oh you can't keep me from that, no way!

I have seen the future, through beer goggles which are really quite comfortable, and your hair turns out gorgeous, your wedding fun and beautiful. As for the marriage...


Rooting for you Tink! And your hair.

At 05 November, 2008, Blogger Reb said...

That sucks about the hair, but I am sure it will be just lovely. Have a wonderful wedding and eat lots of cake!

Best wishes for you both!

HOLY GUACAMOLE!! Trust your grandmother's hair dresser.
Now take a deep breath...again...again... close your eyes... Here's your shot of tequila. Bottoms up! Now, wasn't that helpful? Let's have another.

We'll miss you while you're gone, so you'd better have an incredibly AWESOME time without us!! I know you'll be a gorgeous bride. :)

Psssst! Hey, everyone: wanna sneak in and leave tacky love notes all over their house?

At 05 November, 2008, Blogger Pamer said...

we all love you Tink!! I'm lending my prayers for your sexy hair!

1. Congratulations!
2. I cannot BELIEVE you apologized for not blogging the WEEK of your wedding. Dork.
3. Will you be posting pictures.
4. The beer will still be here. As will I.

:) Congrats, once again!

At 05 November, 2008, Blogger Knight said...

I've done the same thing to my hair too. The new color bleeds into the highlights and makes it orange. I was able to fix mine pretty well by stripping out some of the color and high lighting again. Well, I didn't do it, the salon did. Don't worry, it will look fantastic!

Have a great last week as a Miss Tink!

At 05 November, 2008, Blogger Peggy said...

Sorry - I came in to water the plants and I didn't see the sign you left telling us to leave the beer alone. I'll replace it. I swear!

You're hair will look lovely on the day plus you can always go with that big veil . . . ;-)

Love and good luck!

Ah, little Tink's getting married. Will this mean Hoop will be Mrs. Tink when you return?

BEST luck to you guys!

Tinks' gonna come back having had her fairy dust all Mrs.'D up!

Yeah, I wanna be one of the girls meeting you for drinks!

Best of luck to you this Saturday! It will be a wonderful day for you!

I hope it all goes great...well, I hope there are enough tiny little glitches to make it amusingly memorable in years to come. But nothing that will cause the bride (or the groom) to freak too much! You are going to be such a beautiful bride, even if you do have orange streaks!! I can't wait to see photos of your special day.

At 05 November, 2008, Blogger Saffa Chick said...

You'll be fine - half a week is enough time to fix your hair ;-)

I didn't lose weight before my wedding, but that's probably because I EAT when I'm stressed LOL.

Have a wonderful WONDERFUL day.

And the best piece of advice to pass on to you is: Stop every now and then and absorb the day. It goes so very fast!

As for advice on making the marriage work - I'll get back to you when I figure it out ;-)

At 05 November, 2008, Blogger Katie said...

Make sure you eat a lot at your reception. I didn't - all that yummy food I had picked out and I spent more time talking and never ate anything. And the cake is such a big expense make sure you get a BIG piece!

Oh, yeah. And have fun! Even if there are disasters, at the end of the day you will still be married. And have some funny stories in a few years. ;)

Wedings are a cruel thing to inflict upon a bride and groom.

At 06 November, 2008, Blogger Jay said...

Best of luck with the hair thing. Maybe you could just wear a ball cap? I'd recommend wearing it backwards.

Everything is going to be great Saturday! Have a great time babe.

At 06 November, 2008, Blogger the Bag Lady said...

Congratulations, Tink and Hoop!

You will be a beautiful bride, and Hoop probably wouldn't care if your hair was pink! Hey, there's a plan....
okay, maybe not.

Enjoy your special day, and best wishes for a long and happy life together.

At 06 November, 2008, Blogger Farmer*swife a/k/a Glass_Half_Full said...

YAY for YOU! Except the hair thing. Like you need to be worrying about that right now.

I'm sure they will get it right and everything will be fine.

I am so squeeeeeeeeee excited for y'all!!! Don't worry about us. We will be here.

Got get hitched to your guy!

Best of best of BEST of luck for you and hoop's very special day!

Happy Wedding!

There are some honeymoon activities I would recommend as good weight loss tools as well, and you don't even have to leave the bed.


At 06 November, 2008, Blogger Unknown said...

Yay!!! Tink's getting married. Congratulations. You're going to do fine and your hair is in my thoughts just don't do anything crazy like trying to dye your hair the night before your wedding (I didn't do that. what are you talking about?) Good Luck.

At 06 November, 2008, Blogger g-man said...

I'll be thinking of you two. Just remember to breathe and have fun!

At 06 November, 2008, Blogger Aunt Jackie said...

What a "hairy" situation! Wow... well I do wish you all the best, and I know that you will get your hair straightened out. It'll all be fine.

And maybe you worry yourself skinny before the wedding, but I ASSure you that you will gain it back... Being happily married is an easily fattening situation.

I doubt you'll get fat. I struggle... so it's probably just me and my ice cream addiction.

Anyways, "To Tink and Hoop!! May they be granted every happiness and all the best life has to offer!"

I think there must be some rule of thumb about hair mishaps and an upcomming event such as a wedding.

At 06 November, 2008, Anonymous Anonymous said...

You would be a beautiful bride even if your hair were purple.

A word of assvice if you wear contact lenses. Do NOT get fake nails the night before your wedding. I did this. My nails were done in a beautiful pale pink shade. They were juuusst over the tips of my fingers. I'd never had long nails before. I could not get my contacts out the night before my wedding without pulling my whole eyeball out.

Joe refused (REFUSED??!) to do it for me. He said, "I'm NOT putting my fingers in your eyes." Even after I'd tried to use the logic that we'd done things to each others bodies that made putting a finger in each others' eyes seem tame. WHAT? Before we were married?! Oh, the shame.

Anyway, on the day of our wedding, my left hand had 3 gorgeous nails and the thumb & forefinger were trimmed down.

Also, don't drink too much at the reception. Nobody wants to spend their wedding night puking.

Lastly, Have a great time and enjoy yourself. You're only going to do this once.

I'm sure your hair will be beautiful again! Best wishes and enjoy your day! Congrats!

Guess what, Tink? You're getting married Saturday!

ENJOY every moment of it. Congratulations!

At 06 November, 2008, Blogger mamatulip said...

All I will think about between now and Saturday is your hair.

And maybe chocolate.

And coffee, definitely coffee.

Congrats, Tink and Hoop!

I suck, I'm so behind. I've got to catch up on all the wedding posts.

Hope the hair gets fixed.

Good luck and don't forget there is always photoshop.

You're going to be beautiful!

Many happy years to you both. I can guaranty you 'married' beats 'single' hands never have to sleep alone again and there's always someone out there who is thinking of you.

Just remember...for the honeymoon: both black AND red. Either looks fine laying on the floor.

I've turned into the Amazing Lurker lately (be on the lookout for my superhero costume). I've been reading though, and I wanted to with both you and Hoop luck on your big day. I can't wait to see pictures of how beautiful and wonderful everything was. :)

WOOHOOOOOOOO! You're getting married TOMORROW! I'm so excited for you 2, I'm sure it will be a fantastic day. Breathe, enjoy and be present - otherwise the day will go by far too quickly! :) Hope the hair turned out well!

P.S. Fun wedding stuff makes for good memories - we've got some video footage of a tictac pass in the middle of our cermony because I started coughing...and couldn't stop. Damned nervous-mouth-breathing. :) By the way, my word verification is slitypo. HEH?! Since when do you have your WV progammed to call us names?! haha! Goodness...I think my post script is longer than my initial comment...
