- Wedding: October 2012
I had to share my excitement!! My Maid/Matron of Honor is out of state (she’s up in Rhode Island) and she said she’d like to have the week before my wedding off so she could come up and help get all our ducks in a row. Well, she called me yesterday and let me know her vacation time got approved, so she will driving here and arrive on October 1st. I’m so excited as I type this that I’m crying. Emotional! Haha, I’m so excited.
She’s gone above and beyond. I feel so blessed to have her as my best friend. She’ll be here October 1st and leave sometime after our wedding ends. Our reception will be over around 3:30ish. So she, and her fiance (she’s recently engaged, yay!) will be able to help us get all of our stuff back to the house and then probably stay and eat dinner w/us.
Sadly, her fiance’s job wouldn’t let him have Monday off (our wedding is on Sunday) so they have to head back Sunday night. He’ll be joining us later in the week — he’s coming here via train. Then they will drive home together after the wedding. They’ll switch off driving (he’ll drive first part and she’ll drive the last so he can sleep). He also couldn’t leave until late Friday night because his job wouldn’t let him have Friday off either…>_>; poor guy. He won’t get in until sometime early Saturday morning. With that said they’re both coming and I’m excited to meet him. And I feel soooooooo blessed and excited that my Maid/Matron of Honor will be here to help out! HAPPY!
Glad I’ll have my bestie here for sleepovers, late night chats, probably a spa day (my future sister-in-law gave me a spa giftcard for my bday), and helping with finishing touches. She’s the best! YAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
