I was up at 4am this morning.
I finally got my period (was afraid I was going to get it on the day).
Not stressed about wedding tasks – most of it is done (and will be done after rehearsal tonight). But hella stressing about the weather in our honeymoon destination.
Cramping so bad. Haha.
How are you guys holding up?

Oh also! I bought this because I got nightmares the other night about sweating through the wedding (it might be hot on Saturday, so I nightmare’d about sweating between non-existant boobs, down back, legs under my ballgown).
TMI, slightly. But we’re all friends here! haha.

@NinaS: Never heard of that but I have a slight obsession with all things coconut so I’m going to have to try it. Where do you get it?
Ugh, cramps are the worst. Well, bloating is pretty high on the “sucks” list too.
Where are you going on your honeymoon? We are going to the Riviera Maya and I. Cannot. Wait.
I finished my DIY projects yesterday so that’s a relief. And my parents and fiance (for two more days!) have today and tomorrow off so they are available to help me with stuff if I need it. On my to do list still is laundry, cleaning our home and prepping for us to be gone for two weeks, packing for the night before the wedding and the wedding night, and packing for the honeymoon; plus getting the tips set in envelopes to make it easier to distribute the day of, practicing our first dance (we took lessons), converting some money for the honeymoon, getting my e-ring cleaned, etc.
We pick up the caramel apple favors on Friday morning and my bridesmaids and Mom are helping me put the tags and ribbon on them. We are also getting manis/pedis so that should be relaxing. The rehearsal is Friday evening followed by the rehearsal dinner. Then my bridesmaids and I are staying in a hotel suite for one last girls sleepover and to be ready for the hair/makeup team to prep us Saturday morning. I’m looking forward to that because I’ll need the distraction so I don’t get nervous.
Hope you enjoyed reading my novel lol.

I am a day later than you ladies – close enough, right?
I’m driving the 6 hours to Pennsylvania tonight with my best friend and FI will follow tomorrow… almost wedding time!
I have to finish tying the programs together and a few other last-minute details – my biggest stressor is knowing that some of FI’s family is coming in today as well to “help” me and I don’t have much for them to help with, so I’m worried they’ll just be in my way or constantly asking me what they can do. I’m stressed enough without babysitting out-of-town guests! (That sounds way b*tchier than I actually feel, though.)
Anyone else a tiny bit nervous? I’m not worried about the marriage, just the wedding!

I am so excited for you! My best friend is getting married on Saturday and I fear that I will get my period on Saturday. 🙁 I was supposed to get it on Monday but it still hasn’t come. It’s like my body enjoys doing this to me.

I’m pumped up all day long with adrenaline, stressing about little details and checking the weather about 3 times a day now. All of this makes me absolutely exhausted when I get home from work. We are having our bachelor/bachelorette party tonight and I don’t even want to go! I’m sooo tired!
My bulk flowers just showed up today, so I will be making bouquets and such for hours tomorrow.
I think I’ll be glad when it’s over. Isn’t that sad?

@MapleMoose: Got it at Lush – http://www.lush.com – glad to hear your DIYs are finished!! Your friday sounds super busy – hope you get a moment in there to relax! Your last day as a non married bee! 🙂
@LadyBear: I’m also nervous!! Moreso about being the center of attention, which is why I have been procrastinating on our speech, but I guess there’s no way around it! Haha.
@DeeVine1217: Haha, our bodies play cruel tricks on us! I am cramping so badly, but it hurts so good knowing I won’t be cramping on my wedding day. Hahaha.
@thmpper: hoping the weather works out in your favour! And good luck with the bouquets – I am sure they will turn out beautifully!
