- Wedding: October 2013
So… my future sister in law has been asking me how I’m feeling, if I’m stressed, if I need help with anything, and telling me the horror stories of all the things she had to deal with the week of her wedding. Which got me thinking…I’m still not feeling very stressed! I was super-duper busy most of the weekend with back-to-back appointments and meetings, taking my girls things to finish their bouquets (they have been phenomenally helpful), and working on a fellowship application. Nothing has gone awry yet, though I know there is still time. 😉
I’m super Type-A and have made infinite lists, everything is in my calendar and synced to my phone with alerts, etc., and I don’t feel overwhelmed yet. I know once I get into my home state Wednesday and start trying to organize all our DIY decor I may feel a little more overwhelmed, but at the moment I feel fine. Here’s what I have to do:
Today: work, nail appt, maybe gym, maybe fellowship app
Tomorrow: work, gym, pack (suitcase and ALL THE WEDDING STUFF into the car), leave to drive to home state
Wed: arrive in home state, unpack decor stuff, organize decor and gifts, pick up tuxes, pick up wedding license, take dress to BM’s house, stay with dad
Thurs: more organization, print of timelines and assignment lists, makeup trial
Fri: take everything to venue, give morning of cards to Bridesmaid or Best Man and Maid/Matron of Honor, check in to hotel, get ready, have rehearsal and dinner, stay at hotel with Bridesmaid or Best Man
But I don’t feel stressed or overwhelmed yet. Is that bad?! Shouldn’t I have more to do? Am I the only one who feels pretty zen right now?!
I JUST started feeling the nerves over the weekend, but excited nerves. Not bad nerves.
