Im seriously nervous! And my wedding diet has kind of halted (i lost 15lbs) for the last 3 months and i cant seem to get back on it. Keep thinking ill probably have to just cut out bloaty foods for the week before the wedding to make sure i dont look like im pregnant in my dress!

To do:

Pick piano music for recessional (HELP ME HERE PLEASE GUYS IM GOING MAD)
Sort out card box
Pick father daughter dance song
Buy prizes for the casino
Order my amazon basket with guestbook and shoe grips in it
Go to fitting on thursday and pray my dress fits right and she can hem it after all (i panicked about being taller than SO so i bought flat shoes too…)
Have another hair trial after my last one went wrong
Meet photographer tonight
Finish table plans
Glitter milk bottles for top table
Pay pianist, second photographer and candles
Do a thank you frame for the card box/gift table

Now ive written that out, its a lot.. :O

We’re getting married this coming weekend!! On December 8.

I go thru times of feeling nervous/anxious to times of feeling really ready. I’m most excited to marry the love of my life obviously but I’m nervous that the weather won’t cooperate or that things will go horribly wrong. I pretty much only have little things left to do like put pictures in frames and pick up my dress.

6 days to go!!

@DansGirl:  I’m a Dan’s girl too ๐Ÿ™‚ 

Good on you for being organised! I feel like I’ve done a lot of stuff, but I’m sure there’s lots I’ve forgotten! I really need to get all my bits downstairs and lay it all out and check I’ve not forgotten anything!

December 7th- 5 days to go!


I still need to finish the damn programs!  I hope they are done today!  Other than that make my grandma’s fudge for favors and that’s it!


It’s going to be super cold and snowy but if I have to wear boots under my dress so be it.

@Penelopeee:  Hey date twin!

Hard to believe only 5 days to go!  We had a pretty short engagement (4 months) so it really seems like time has flown!

I am sure I’m forgetting something, but at this point I don’t have anything yet on my “to do” list.  I just have to make sure everything is in the car because we are getting married in our hometown, which is a 5 hour drive from where we currently live.

I’ve checked the forecast and it’s supposed to be really cold, but no snow.  Hopefully that will make traveling easier for our guests!

I almost changed my wedding band at the last minute – among the many things I had been rethinking – and I know my Fiance is ready for the big day to come so I cannot change my mind on anything else! Wink

We’re not going on our honeymoon until December 26 so it will be weird to go back to work Monday a married woman!
