The Day Before Your Wedding
The day before your wedding should be for mimosas, mani-pedis, hanging out, and having an epic party with the people you love. Well, Dave and Courtney had that part all figured out and I got a chance to be in on their amazing Texas Tech party!
A Texas Tech Party
The welcome/pool/game night party was held at Courtney’s mom’s home in Lubbock, Texas. The whole day was Texas Tech University themed with visits from the actual mascots (Raider Red and the Masked Rider) and included giant blow-up balls you could get inside and run into each other with.
The food was catered by Back 40 Grill and was the most delicious chicken-fried steak with amazing mashed potatoes. Their special drink was the Chilton, which I’m told you can ONLY order in Lubbock.
The Chilton drink ingredients are:
- 1 1/2 oz vodka
- Juice of 1 lemon
- Salt and ice
Fill a salt rimmed cocktail glass with ice. Pour in vodka and add lemon juice. Fill with soda. Insert straw and stir slightly. Garnish with a lemon wedge.
Pool party, Watch out! You might get wet!
As the night went on and the Chilton’s kept flowing the threat of being tossed, pushed or thrown in the pool and let me tell it was ruthless! The only thing that kept me safe was my hair and my camera! It was epic to watch it go down and I’m happy to say I caught Momma Tina (Courtney’s mom) push Falin, one of the sassier bridesmaid in the pool! It was hilarious!
Just wait until you see the rest of Courtney & Dave’s Texas Barn wedding!
