I can’t believe it! It feels like these past few weeks have flown by and I’m kind of in shock how close our wedding day is finally! I can’t imagine how I will be feeling on the day… it almost feels like the day we have been planning for the last year is just “talk”… I can’t believe it!
This week will be full of running around and last minute things but I’m surprisingly calm. I have moments where I’m grumpy and overwhelmed with the stupidest things but its when I become impatient. Tomorrow is our final meeting with our venue and then we are good to go!
I’m planning on tieing the last favors, buying what we need for communion, buying the almond candies for the family dish, and whatever I can get done tomorrow. Sunday I’m moving all my stuff over to our apartment, Monday and Tuesday are pretty much free except I’m going with my Future Mother-In-Law to get her hair done and last minute decision with my hairdresser. Wednesday we will be getting readying for my family to come in on Thursday, which will also be the day to finish packing for our honeymoon, and then Friday will be nails and rehersal. AHHH It feels so good to have a plan :).
How is everyone else doing? What are your plans for this week?

AAAAAHHH!!! I can’t believe its right HERE! I keep saying “I’m getting married next Friday” and it doesn’t quite seem REAL!! 🙂
But alas, it is true!
We’re going to pick up FI’s wedding band tomorrow…and buying a wash machine! (Wedding present!)
I had my second fitting and picked up my dress tonight.
Just need to pick up FI’s tux, and get some flowers to make his bout, and we’re all done, except for packing for the honeymoon!! 🙂

Don’t remind me! My to-do list has multiplied and I’ve done next to nothing! Going to be a busy busy week… was hoping to have some down time with FH before the big day but I’ve procrastinated too much 🙁

@bali_y: You do have a lot to do but it will all get done! Vows, place card, seating chart, picking up suits and cleaning your ring can be done fast. Can you have a “phone meeting” with your photographer? Try to take a deep breath everything that is important will get done!

YAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY!!!!!! I can’t wait! I’m SO excited!
Today we’re going to my parents house to make the Out of Town gift bags and then that’s it! My cousin is doing the caligraphy on our placecards, then my mom will put the numbers on each one. Other than that, I just have to remember the breathe and eat until then!
I will say, the past few days have been tough for me as I have struggled with eating disorders for a really long time. I am feeling SO much pressure to look perfect. I have gone to the gym almost every day this week, and right now my calves are so sore I can barely walk. Ugh. Sorry to be Debbie Downer! I am so psyched for the wedding, but really anxious about looking fat 🙁

AAAAHHH this time next week I will be getting my hair done! The main thing we have left is to finish the seating chart and escort cards. Then I have to do lots of yoga next week and go to the psa with my mom 🙂 I will be focused on de-stressing and getting into the right frame of mind after all this madness!
OMG, one week!

WOOP WOOP! I’m so excited that I can barely sleep at niight. I just have to finish my feather wreaths to tie on the pews and pack everything up (our wedding is taking place 2 hours from where we live), but that’s pretty much it. I have to finalize the timeline with the photographer, make up artist and DJ this next week and then we’re good to go. Trying to stay stress free as possible. It didn’t help to find out that I have a cyst on my back 1 1/2 weeks before the wedding, though.. =/

I’m so beyond excited! Last night I had a really hard time falling asleep but when I woke up I was feeling a little better. Today we finalized our reception and paid it off!!! 🙂 Im slowly moving myself into our apartment while everyone is out… I’m enjoying doing it myself and having some “me” time :). Tomorrow all the heavy stuff will go over!

@pinkandsparkly: So exciting! I’m bouncing back and for about Out of Town bag… what are you putting in them? I’m only having 15 people come in which are mostly imidiate family (brothers, sister, BIL, BIL’s parents, Aunt and uncle and 2 cousins) do you think I should make them?
You are going to look AMAZING!

@Sah: thanks 🙂
I don’t really think it’s totally necessary, it’s just sort of a little nice gesture

I am very excited and a little nervous. I have most everything major done…working on escort cards tonight. This week it’s a final meeting with our day of planner, finish packing for the honeymoon, pick up my engagement ring b/c it’s getting clean and dipped to make the white 14 K sparkle, final fitting tomorrow, then pick up my dress later in the week, and all the beauty stuff…hair color, pedi, getting nails put on, eyebrow threading, and maybe a quick trip to Sephora! FH actually agreed to get a manicure on Friday before the wedding b/c he works with his hands and he agreed he needs it. I am not thrilled with my outift for the rehearsal dinner…so I may try and find something else. I am really shocked that I am not as nervous as I thought I would be…but that very well may change as the day approaches. My biggest concern is to get through the ceremony (part of my isle is walking down about 10 steps!) and the vows…then I will be fine!
Congrats all you brides getting married this coming weekend!

THREE DAYS!!!!!! Today is my last day at work, and I already filled up tomorrow with my to do list! I’m trying SO hard to stay calm but yesterday we went to go pick up Fiance tuxedo, and they had NO RECORD of it. I almost lost it for real this time. The manager took care of it and it will be ready today…but seriously, I almost went completely Bridezlla and ate someone.
