@MsSparklyBee:  Not long now!!

 

Mine’s not til the end of the month but I am FREAKING.OUT. Pretty much at any given moment of the day. It’s like a combo of nervousness + excitement. It’s not the fact all eyes will be on me, it’s just – holy shit, we’re getting MARRIED… this is going to be the most important day of our lives to date.

@MsSparklyBee:  I am calm when I am not thinking about the ceremony venue.  They have pissed me off so many times in the last 2 months.  I am really to the point where I do not want to get married there but its there or my parents backyard…

@MsSparklyBee:  Happy wedding week, date twin!

We’re in pretty good shape. We have an 8 hour drive ahead of us tomorrow to the wedding state. 

The only thing I’m worried about is our officiant. He sent over a retyped version of our ceremony with typos (WHY would there be typos in our vows, which we typed and sent to him? Seriously.) and some very traditional additions that we do NOT want. He also had the wrong time for our ceremony. We sent back all the changes… haven’t heard from him again since.

Woo-hoo Happy Wedding Week Sep 21st Bees!!!!

 

I too am surprisingly calm and excited. We are finishing up the favors and getting around to last minute things like wrapping our parents gifts, giving the final headcount to the venue today, picking up the dress, honeymoon packing, my cake topper has gone missing so we have to find that, menus & placecards are being sent out today for tomorrow. All is good!

We had our rehearsal dinner last week, I must say it was rocky lol I’m a little nervous something will go wrong during our ceremony!

How crazy is it to say “I’m getting married this week?!!?”  How will I ever make it through this work week?! LOL

I’m so excited!! Surprisingly calm, and not nervous at all.  We have SO much going on right now I think I’ve shut down my emotions, for now.  We close on our first home Friday afternoon, and then the wedding is Saturday, and then off to our honeymoon.  

Our last few weeks have been filled with packing up our apartment and doing things for the wedding.  My wedding to-do list is down to a manageable few things left. I’m sure that Friday and Saturday I’ll be in panic mode…

Good luck September 21st date twins!! Congratulations! Can’t wait to see some recaps! 🙂

WOOOOT!

Last week I was a mess. Outwardly fairly calm and jovial about it all, but inside I was a wreck lol. I was emotional, I couldn’t concentrate (on anything, like it wasn’t even that I could only focus on the wedding and nothing else), I had mood swings.

Of course half of that I blame on Aunt Flo visiting….. at least it was last week and not this week!

Today I am more productive already than I was thurs/fri COMBINED, I feel energized, excited, and READY!!!!!

We’ll see how the rest of the day plays out, who knows I might crash my concentration train and derail at LaLa land over the course of the day. No promises here! lol

Still left to do:

-Mom is making my brooch bouquet

-Put together fun props for the photo booth

-Buy the guys’ ties or present, depends on which way we go

-Prep most of the food

-Clean some of the vases and glassware to be used for the decorations

-Steam my dresses

-Just go over last minute details to be sure nothing is overlooked

-I will need to do my manicure, and I would love to lay out just a bit more! I think I got a shade darker over the weekend so that makes me feel a tiny bit better but if the weather holds out I can get one more!!! lol. (SAFELY with SUNSCREEN of course!)

-Finish the girls’ sparkle shoes

I think that’s it! Other than setup the day before and all that jazz 😛

@jesssamesssa:  Are you feeling well yet??

@SoonToBeMrsD921:  Happy Wedding Week to you, too!!!

 

I was a puddle of stress and anxiety all last week and then my FMIL came to the rescue and took over my name cards and seating charts – Final numbers and seat assignments were submitted AND accepted today!

Oh, and that little snaffu about my wedding band appraisal was cleared and as of 12:30pm today both of our wedding bands are properly documented and insured!

There are a couple things I still need to do, like pick up my veil and hand things over to my day of cordinator, ie. Stuff for the ceremony and reception. But other than that I just get to sit back and enjoy the week!! Tomorrow is my friday and I am not due back into the office until 9/25 – yep! I am happy!
