My nerves are definitely starting to pick up! That, and I can’t focus on work at.all!

I was just thinking, the honeymoon should come before the wedding, because it’s not like I’m getting any work done!

my nerves are allllll over. I get a funny feeling in my tummy looking at my countdown app, and I feel like there is a lot to do when really there is enough.

I agree.. crazy.. still lots left to do.. So I went to my final fitting today and planned to pick up my dress.. and they broke the linen strap when hanging it back up.. so not a big deal except if I can’t hang it up how will I take sooo cute pictures with my hangers I made myself lol.. so they are fixing it.. and steaming it.. it will be ready monday or tuesday.. I leave for my flight wednesday.. craziness

I need to start wearing my shoes around the house more.. to finish breaking them in.. 

My Future Mother-In-Law went with me to this last fitting so she could see how to lace up the back.. and we took a picture of the finished product because if all else fails my DOC will have to give my mother direction. 

Anybody want a sneak peak?

@Soon2BeMrs7913:  The embellishment on your dress looks so similar to the embellishment on mine! Mine is also a lace-up back, but we decided to put the modesty panel just to cover the tat on my back 🙂

Oh my goodness, I didn’t think of it that way! “Last day of double digits”. Holy Moly, bring on the butterflies.

 

I still have SO much left to do, and my fingers are crossed that I have lost enough weight since my last fitting to slip into my dress! 2 weeks ago it wouldn’t zip! I won’t find out if it fits until a week from now. AHHH. The time when I need wine the most, I can’t have a glass because I’m trying to cut back all empty calories. SHOOT! 🙂

I’m freaking out, I have a ton of stuff to do I feel like, and the list seems to keep getting longer, and people are asking me what they can do to help and I don’t even know!

I’m getting almost no work done at work because my mind is all over the place. I haven’t had a dress fitting since February (my dress is in Kentucky, where we’re getting married, I’m in Georgia) and while I’ve recently lost a little weight, I don’t remember if I was smaller or bigger than this three months ago. And it’s so many other little things — I haven’t dyed my hair, I never whitened my teeth, etc.

It is getting real now!!!! My emotions are all over the place. I’m frustrated, overwhelmed, nervous, excited. I feel like I have SO much to do. But, in reality just about everything has been done. Oh boy! I’m just ready for it to come and go….just want to be married already.

@Soon2BeMrs7913:  I still need to follow up with the dj, I need to figure out exactly what still needs to be done once I get to Kentucky next week (go get marriage license, buy alcohol, mani/pedi, final crafting things, etc.), working on what I need to pack, we’re going on our mini-moon immediately after the wedding, so I need the stuff for that too — right now it just feels like a ton to remember.

Also, one of my bridesmaids just texted me asking if it was too late for her to add a plus one (she technically doesn’t have a plus one) because her mom wants to come. This would mean me having to rearrange seating somehow, so I really want to say no but I don’t want to be a bitch about it . . . it’s just a tricky thing.

@Neetch:  Definitely trickey.. I actually when planning my tables left about 6 extra spots scattered throughout for this exact problem. If no adds then I’ll just make those tables 7 people instead of 8 etc.. Sucks though

I hear you.. I’m trying to finish projects right now.. it just took me a half hour tofigure out my dog harneess for their outfits.. it was all tangle.. talk about pain in the ass..

where’s your mini-moon? were not going on one yet ause of my work schedule so I’ll have to live vicariously through everybody elses lol

Soooooo exciting!! I’m actually fairly calm. I got the seating chart done finally. Not much left to do until I get to NC on Thursday! I’m so ready! 🙂
