wedding fun part one

On saturday, my schedule went like this:
8am- decorate reception site for wedding #1
10:30- decorate reception site for wedding #2
12:00- run home and get ready (and make last-minute corsages and some wedding cards!)
1:30- wedding #1
3:00- wedding #2
5:00- reception #1
7:00- reception #2
