After RDG, some of the alumnae went downtown for more drinks but I was too tired so my friends (and bridesmaids) Rachel and Beth and I went back to my house and chit-chatted a bit before going to sleep.
On Saturday, I had to go to Orlando for an alterations appointment for my wedding dress. I was worried about how much it would cost but it wasn't too bad. I got it bustled and a few other minor alterations for about $55. Unfortunately, I've gotten a little fatter since I bought the dress so they are going to have to let out the sides a little bit for $60. I have bought shoes for the wedding but I wasn't sure if they were too tall/uncomfortable. Well the alterations appointment made up my mind - the dress length was PERFECT with the shoes I bought and to get it hemmed would be $150! I guess since there are so many details at the bottom of the dress they actually have to take in the extra length at the waist which sounds to me like they have to take the dress apart just to hem it. So I'm keeping the shoes :)
When I got back from Orlando I went to an Alumnae BBQ at the Alpha Phi house. It was just a couple hours of everyone hanging out at the house and telling stories, catching up and munching on some delicious food that all the APhis made for us. There were a couple more events over the weekend (drinks at the local bar that night and then a beach day on Sunday) but I had too much other stuff to do to go them. Hopefully they still had a good turn out at the rest of the events!
Thanks a lot to all the girls for hosting a wonderful Alumnae weekend and Red Dress Gala - I can't wait to see everyone again next year!
