January 2014 Brides…
We are all so close!! We’re all within 2-6 weeks of our weddings! I hope everyone has been able to step back and TRULY appreciate and enjoy the process, despite all the little stresses that come in the last few weeks!
Sometimes it is so easy to get caught up in the wedding industry that we forget about what REALLY matters… The awesome person we’re marrying!
Congrats to all of you- Enjoy the holidays and then top ’em all off with one of the best days of your lives! (:

@CzechBride14: Good points! It is so easy to get caught up in the madness and stress, but it really is all about marrying the one you love and celebrating with your family and friends. I hope you have a lovely holiday season too, and a beautiful and happy wedding!

@CzechBride14: I cant even lie, I am so stressed out I forgot Christmas was next week. I honestly can not wait for this whole thing to be over with. I wish I could say this is all so much fun but its not. 🙁

@FutureMrsJohnston: Oh, I know… I haven’t even done half of my Christmas shopping, due to all the craziness. Movies make planning seem MUCH more fun than it is.. After you get past the dress, venues, cake, etc., it is actually kind of a nightmare. I feel you!!
I’ve thought, “I just want it to be here and over” so many times. You’re not alone! But that’s what made me realize I need to enjoy it a little bit too!
This SHOULD be fun and exciting. It’ll all be great in the end!! We’ve got this!

@FutureMrsJohnston: I feel ya. Planning was never really fun. I’m looking forward to it being over with. That’s largely because I wanted to elope but my FI and everyone else wanted a typical wedding, so I gave in. Hard to plan something you’re not really commited to.
That said, I’m pretty much done planning. There isn’t much left, so for that I am thankful. And I am so happy I get to see my FI in exactly 3 weeks (we’re long distance, haven’t seen him since October), and we are married right after that. It will feel good to have that legal document in hand!

@FutureMrsJohnston: I keep forgetting that Christmas is next week too! The wedding planning keeps you busy. I feel so blessed and excited.

Oh my gosh, I keep forgetting next week is Christmas too! I’m like, “Christmas?! What Christmas? You mean I have to spend like three days focusing on something that’s not the wedding?!” Lol.
I am alternating between being incredibly excited/happy/thrilled and furious at everyone, hahaha. The honeymoon is going to be the best thing everrrr.

Also, I’m getting married on a Monday, and I called a local brow bar to make an appointment to get my eyebrows waxed, and I asked them how far in advance to have it done, since my wedding was on January 6.
The receptionist/whoever was like, “On the 6th? You’re getting married on a Monday??” and I was like, “Uh, yep.” And she was like, “Suuuuure, okay.” like she didn’t believe me! Like… why would I lie and say I was getting married?! I had to take a few deep breaths and not go serious bridezilla, lol.
Thank goodness my FI is a calm breath of fresh air. He is the most laidback, happiest person in the world, AND he lets me rant when I need to, lol.

@howsweetitis: You said: “I am alternating between being incredibly excited/happy/thrilled and furious at everyone.” That made me smile. Being engaged and wedding planning has certainly been an emotional journey! While I am thrilled the wedding is almost here, I think I will miss this special time when it’s all over.

@howsweetitis: Why the heck would you lie about that? Weird…
Also, this: I am alternating between being incredibly excited/happy/thrilled and furious at everyone, hahaha.
So perfectly said! I feel like a crazy person. I go from being extremely excited and happy to being pissed off at the world because something has gone wrong. Haha.

@FutureMrsJohnston: Date twin!
I’m counting down the days but am surprisingly not stressed. I know that everything that is left is small details and all the big stuff is wrapped up.
I go for my final fitting tomorrow!

@bowsergirl: Hmmm I wouldn’t want to deal with a pissed off Bowser LOL!
I think everything will hit me more once Christmas is over, but I have a few days off work that I can spend wrapping stuff up.
