YAY YAY YAY!!! Reading all of your comments is making me even more excited Smile I have also had so many feelings of overwhelming joy today. I know it sounds silly but I read about 5 people’s Facebook statuses that included comments about our wedding and it made me feel so loved!

@hilsy85: I just started feeling it this morning. The joy I felt on Monday has been filled with this weird nauseated, headache-type thing. Ugh.

After the last couple weeks of things falling apart everyone is being amazing and congratulating me on not being a bridezilla.  2 weeks ago only my Maid/Matron of Honor could come to my bachelorette party 🙁 then she tells me the girl who was going to make all our cupcakes and cake topper (as a gift no less) can’t do it.  Ok, all the girls will get together and have a baking party.  All the cupcakes are now in my freezer waiting to be iced and I’m hoping the burn on my arm will heal a little more in the next couple days so it won’t be so visible.  The RSVP deadline came and went and we have 10 out of about 200 that actually RSVP’d so we have NO idea how much food to get, thankfully my future Mother-In-Law is taking care of that.  Now yesterday the guy who was going to play Tesla’s Love Song intro on the acoustic guitar for me to walk down the isle to calls and says, “Oh by the way, I have to work and can’t be there in time.”  AAAARRRRGGGGHHHHH!  I want to kill him!  He has known for over a week and couldn’t be bothered to tell us?  Now we are scrambling to see what other rabbit we can pull out of the hat.  Just hoping at this point my dresses get done, one at the bridal store for pressing and the other in for MAJOR alterations.  I can’t waikt for this to be over so I can go on my honeymoon.

I had someone ask if they could bring a boyfriend last Wed, which was 9 days before the wedding. Completely ridiculous!

Seeing family that have come into town the last few days has made this so real and exciting! Good luck everyone 🙂

@Aleanan: Haha yup, I’m still having the nauseaus/excited swings too. But tomorrow I have nothing to do but get a mani/pedi and check into the hotel so hopefully the nerves will go away and I’ll just wake up on Friday super excited, as I’m sure you will too (except Saturday for you 🙂 )!

i’m getting more nervous and more excited as each hour passes. i have less than 2 hours of work left (although i’m on weddingbee instead….) and then i’m freeeeee!! i have run into a few snags this week but i’m trying not to let it get to me. like one of my friends telling me TODAY that her and her boyfriend can’t come. or our venue telling us that we HAVE to mark on the escort cards the meal choices of each person – yeah didn’t do that. deal with it.  anyway, at least the weather looks great for this weekend! how’s everyone else doing?

It’s my first day off work before the wedding, and I’ve felt really anxious today.  Not about any one thing – just that the wedding is here and it’s happening in like 48 hours.  I really hope I snap out of it soon.  This is really unusual for me, I’ve been a cool cucumber for the last 18 months of being engaged.  Hopefully it will dissipate once we get on the road tomorrow.  I think the waiting around is stressing me out.

TOMORROWWWWWWWWWWWW~! 

One more meeting and I’m out of work at noon, ready to tackle my monster to-do list:

I have to pick up cat litter/cat food so that Bridesmaid or Best Man can take care of the kitties, then I have to make sure we leave a key for her, then pick up fruit platters for the rooms while people get ready tomorrow, then pack the car, remembering to bring my dress, accessories, shoes, FI’s tux, the trellises for the ceremony, the umbrellas, the Out of Town baskets, the photo board, the kids bags, the box of stuff for the venue, the marriage license, the rings, our passports and our giant suitcases! I need to close a pampered chef show, return a dress to Burlington Coat Factory, return two t-shirts to Hollister, pick up a headband for my niece, call and update the reservation for tonight’s dinner to include 3 more people, then get down to Nahant for 2:30! Then we head to the hotel! YIKES! So much to do!
