The boys headed back to the hotel, where the staff had reserved a conference room for all the boys to get ready in. They were totes jealous that we ladies had the penthouse but we had a ton more stuff and needed the space ;)
Disclaimer: since I wasn't there when they were getting ready (obvi!!) my commentaries are based on what's going on in the photos below and our full-length wedding video.
They started off their afternoon with ceremonial shots of whisky.

|My note to him--smiles then some tears (of joy I assume!)|
I ended up getting him cuff links with the Egyptian ankh symbol on them, which represents eternal life. This symbol is very meaningful to us (and him especially) because the night we first met, he said I was wearing a necklace that reminded him of the ankh--something he had come across when he vacationed in Egypt with his friend's family a few years earlier. I knew I wanted to get him cuff links for the wedding, so I couldn't believe my luck when I came across this gorgeous pair on Amazon. He absolutely loved them!

|I LOVE this photo. You can see the ankh cuff link on the right|
And all the other guys (including my dad) were finishing up getting dressed as well.

But before that, I finally get to put on my most favorite dress in the world!
