Newbie here that just needs to chat/vent.
OMG, I can’t believe our wedding day is finally going to be here! YAY!! It’s really getting difficult to contain my excitement!! I’ve waited twelve years for this day and couldn’t be happier.
So many things are on my mind; it’s crazy. It’s all of the little things that I need to do now to wrap up, but finding the time to get them accomplished is not easy. lol. And every day, July 7th is a day closer. Some of my stress is being caused by, i.e. the handmade favors that I ordered from Arizona via Etsy still are not here. The photographer has yet to call (and when I called they said that the photog would be in touch w/ me). Etc., etc., etc. Oh well, I get a bit overwhelmed sometimes, but it’s all good.
However, the one thing on my mind a lot lately is my wedding dress. I have some reservation and regret about buying it, because I know I hurried along my decision because of the annoying teenagers trying on prom dresses at the same time (in January) and being shoved into a tiny corner with my two BFFs. My dress is not a per se, an “ugly” dress; it’s just not what I would have liked to envision myself in. Hopefully I’ll accessorize enough to make up for what it’s lacking. I keep telling myself “it’s a beautiful dress”… I just keep seeing ones that I like a whole lot better!
Please let the day get here so I can have some normalcy back in my life! 😛

@FinallyPA12: Aw.. just relax and be yourself and you will be beautiful. My rehearsal dinner is on your wedding day. I’ve been soooo nervous lately! It’s such a big change and all I said to my girls at my bachelorette party last night was that I hope to be a good wife.
Keep trying the photographer. I had that same issue with my makeup artist, and finally she called me back. I get so nervous thinking what if one of my vendors doesn’t show up!
If you have a picture of your dress, post it. I love looking at dresses.

I feel your pain!!! I am getting married July 7th too:) I have been working like crazy trying to get everything done..I was super busy for awhile with moving and work, so wedding planning got put on hold! I just made my programs today, and now am tryin to get music together and everything that we have to bring to the hall! I also had MAJOR dress regret..I wish you at least had a couple days to change your mind! I’m starting to like my dress again, but it is the exact opposite of what I thought I would wear on my wedding day!! I CAN NOT wait for life to get back to normal too!!!!

@Rubbs: Happy “wedding week” to you! Below is my dress; although I have it in ivory, not white (…long past the wearing the ‘white’ -LOL). It was extremely affordable and I’m not preserving it because (a) I only plan to wear it once, (b) I won’t be “passing it along” down to a different generation, and (c) I won’t have to worry about spills or mishaps with the dress because I won’t care. One very positive thing about the dress is it is super lightweight, and I need that for the outdoor ceremony (and the weather forecast is 96* for 7/7). Would have loved to have a fit and flare dress; but my BFF just got marriend last September and had that style – so I felt like if I got that, I would be “copying” and not my own. Having said all that, this is what I’ve got and have to make the best of it.

I don’t know about you ladies… But I am so freaking excited today, that I can hardly stand myself!! How am I going to work today and tomorrow? I work from home, so hopefully I’ll be able to stay focused… but all that’s truly on my mind is: wedding, wedding, wedding!
What are your wedding week plans?
My goals for this week:
- Finish up all of the loose ends (i.e. place cards, etc.)
- Gym everyday
- Probably tan twice this week
- Sleep, sleep, sleep
- Try to remain stress-free (HAHAHAHAHA)
- “Try” not to get on my family’s nerves. I did mention “try”, right?
I just can’t wait! Will be so happy to kick off the festivities this Friday at our rehearsal.
Hope that you’re feeling the same euphoric feelings that I am this week!!
How are you
