June 13th here… I”m feeling the pressure I have to admit.  I’m still calm and almost never freak out about anything.  I’m feeling the stress some of having to do a lot and quickly.  There are a lot of calls, email, final touches to be made.  I’m working till the end so still counting my free hours left to get things finished.  I’m confident in everything though and super super super excited!  I cannot belive its 4 days away!

I just hit the 10 day mark today, and I’ve been feeling kind of sick to my stomache all day especially when people keep telling me that they’re so excited for my wedding! What is your secret for staying so calm?

Hey Jennifer!  I’m getting excited, but trying to stay calm.  All I have left is finishing menu cards, programs, making my escort card table runner & making cookies for favors!  I feel like I’m in good shape so far 🙂

How are you doing? Have you totally recovered from your bachelorette party yet? hehe

I love the gun bride picture. It gives me ideas for our wedding day pics! 😉 

I, too, am on the 10 day count down. I have bursts of excitement followed by not thinking about it at all. It is kinda strange. I am thinking about getting my nails done, but not sure if I should. I am getting a massage on Friday, though. 

Are there any pampering things that you bees are doing or recommend a bride do a week before the wedding?

I’m rather calm about things too! It’s just the little details now, and I keep reminding myself that the big stuff is taken care of – and if the little things don’t come together… they don’t come together! 🙂

I’m definitely getting a little nervous about things coming together, but I feel like there’s still a lot to do: place settings, final dress alteration, buy accessories, buy gifts, final meetings with all the vendors…I probably should be doing something about it, but instead am procrastinating on the ‘bee. ugh

I love when my brides realize that they have sweated out all the details prior to the wedding and it’s just time to relax and enjoy themselves on the big day. Otherwise, the day will fly by and be nothing but a blur by the end of it. It’s one of the biggest days of your life. Have fun!!!

Jennifer:  The only thing I won’t be done with this weekend is making the cookies.  We are doing cookie favors, and don’t have a TON of room in the fridge to store them, so they have to be made the week of.  Other than that, I’ll be good.

I have to remember to finish breaking in my shoes!

We are packing for the honeymoon this weekend!!!  That’s exciting too!

As of right now, I have just been putting them on and wearing them around the house in the evening.. it looks completely riduculous, but it’s working a bit, they are more comfortable each time I wear them. 

I keep meaning to wear them with socks, but it’s been warm, so putting socks on is always a downer… maybe I’ll try that tonight though.

We have tons of help with cookies for the cookie buffet, but we are making the ones for the favors.. my FI makes super yummy cookies & my dad is staying with us, so I’ll have helpers.. I just hope we dont have to many “eaters” ha!

I’m probably going to take some time this after noon to start writing down outfits that I want to bring with me on vaca.  I have to remember to bring tennis shoes & gym stuff.  I want to work out while I’m there.  Plus the FI & I might go play a round of golf, so I want to be comfortable doing that as well.  I’m so excited for fun in the sun (with spf 30 of course 🙂 ha)

I’m trying really really hard not to be TOTALLY distracted at work, since I do actually have things to get done before I leave… but it’s hard 🙂

The stress hit me hard the last couple of weeks, but I’m still 16 days out and have to finish music selections, programs, and getting payments and final numbers out to vendors. I think once I have that done, I can ease on into the day! Here’s hoping 🙂

Only 3 days!!!!  I’m getting down to that ‘relax and let it happen’ phase.  I never thought I’d feel this way.  I’m picking up MOH from the airport in 2 hours and then everything is down hill from there.  I dropped off our OOT bags yesterday and all final major vendor payments have been made – we WILL have food!!

there’s still lots of little random things to be done – pick up rehearsal dinner cake, buy extra hairspray, write card for FI’s gift, print photos of hair trial for big day, bring cat to friends’ house, PACK!!!

cannot wait!
