Bringing Up Bates Recap: Carlin Bates And Evan Stewart’s Rehearsal Dinner And Final Preparations
The Bringing Up Bates recap for this week finds Evan Stewart and fiance Carlin Bates finishing up last wedding details. Surely, they are a little worried about their first dance because they’ve only had one practice session. Carlin’s brother Lawson Bates wrote the song and will perform it while Evan Stewart and his bride danced their first dance as a married couple. No doubt, they were a little stressed but they joked that as long as they get the ending right it will be ok on Bringing Up Bates.
Also on Bringing Up Bates, Carlin Bates had a spa day with her sisters Erin Bates Paine and Tori Bates Smith. While trying to relax they discussed how Carlin’s hair would be done for the wedding. Carlin thought it was all set but her sisters had other ideas. They decided to add a flower crown but it was too late to order any more flowers. So, they just played it by ear hoping there would be enough. Then, it was rehearsal time which was challenging because it was 94 degrees with an outdoor wedding venue.
Besides that, Carlin’s wedding party is the biggest yet with 12 groomsmen and 12 bridesmaids. Certainly, it’s not easy to arrange that many people. But, it all worked and after they enjoyed a beautiful dinner put on by Evan Stewart’s family. After dinner, Carlin Bates gave a speech that was so incredibly heartfelt. There wasn’t a dry eye in the house. Also, Evan got emotional during his speech because he will be moving away from his family once they are hitched on Bringing Up Bates.
Evan And Carlin Stress Over Wedding Song – ‘Show You I Do’
On this week’s Bringing Up Bates, Carlin Bates was worried about the duet she and Evan Stewart will perform at the ceremony. No doubt, the song, ‘Show You I Do’ was the priority and it was weighing heavily on Carlin. Come rehearsal day, she still didn’t have all the words down so it was all she could think about. Also, Evan wrote the song so that gave him a bit of an advantage.
However, Evan only just finished the song a couple of weeks ago because he didn’t have a lot of free time. So, the pressure was on and he was pretty nervous about it as well. But, he and Carlin rehearsed as much as possible and did their best. It is a beautiful song and that expresses their commitment to each other. No doubt, the sentiment behind it all that matters on Bringing Up Bates.

The Reception On Bringing Up Bates
Then, the Bringing Up Bates reception began and the speeches were so heartfelt and sweet. However, Erin Bates Paine had a bit of a slip up during her speech. She accidentally said she had four children instead of three giving away that she’s pregnant which no one knew. Certainly, a memorable way to make the announcement. Then, it was time for their first dance as husband and wife. They danced to a song written and performed by Lawson Bates. Surely, this was one of the main stressors for the couple but it went perfectly.
