  • Wedding: March 2014

-When you leave the work bathroom and forget to buckle your belt because you have too much on your mind and are in too big a hurry (Good thing my pants weren’t super baggy!)

-When you haven’t seen your makeup bag in a good solid month, because seriously, who has time?

-When you have to polish off a venti latte with two extra shots, 32 oz of diet coke, and two cups of coffee in one day because you were up late furiously crafting the night before.

-When “HOW HARD IS IT TO WRITE A NUMBER ON A CARD, STICK IT IN AN ENVELOPE, AND PUT IT IN THE MAILBOX!” is heard around your house several times a day

-Ditto to “THEY ALL CHOSE BEEF!?!?!”

-When you get incredibly sick of hearing “Oh, wow, it’s getting close now!” …Oh yeah! I didn’t notice! These dark bags under my eyes are because I was up late playing Mario Kart. :-/

-When everyone has a billion questions that you don’t have time to answer, and don’t have good answers for yet even if you did.

3/29 wedding here. I totally have a “wedding corner” and a nice etsy collection. The only thing I can think to add is that I have to make a conscious effort not to consume others (mom, sister) with too much talk of wedding tasks.

Big LOL! I thought I was the only person who found this annoying!! Like literally…I get it! It’s close! I never really know what people expect me to say when then throw that at me then wait with an expectant face for my reaction  >:(

@LadyKM:  Exactly! And it’s awkward because when you get this look of terror on your face because a wave of panic related to all you have left to do washes over you, you have to worry whether they think you look that way because you’re afraid of being married.

@EffieTrinket:  Yep! I know everyone is just excited but I am trying not to get too excited so that the days go faster and I think everyone thinks I am angry or something because I just respond with “mhmm”

@EffieTrinket:  Totally! I keep having to say I’m excited for the marriage, but I’m so glad I only have to plan a wedding ONCE! Lol 🙂 

The guest room belongs to wedding decorations. Not sure where my MOH is going to sleep when she gets here lol.

 

Here are my “you know youre a few weeks out when”:  

The event coordinator is pretty much on speed dial. 

I keep thinking about all the weddings I went to that I didn’t RSVP, or never responded to the RSVP, or said I was going and didn’t show up! I hate my former self and I will NEVER do that again!!!! 

Being smug about wedding planning to all my friends that aren’t engaged when they say alllll the bridesmaids/groomsmen theyre going to have, the HUGE party they’re going to have, etc. Yeah ok! Have fun coordinating an event with 28 people in the bridal party!!! I barely got your dorks to RSVP and you still ask me what day it’s on!

You are constantly dodging questions about the wedding because you can’t invite anymore people, or, you are testing the waters with the ones who didn’t get invited to gage how offended they are. 

Closest friends/fiance/dogs get a daily countdown.
