FH and I are like an emotional basket case right now… we’re do soppy it’s pathetic but there’s something about being only four weeks out that has just totally ramped up the emotional side for us. We’ve both had to deal with some crap lately (mainly job related) and I think it’s really truly hitting us how lucky we are to have found each other (having never been in a relationship at all before we were 25… two and a half years later the feeling still hasn’t worn off). i think I’m going to need some extra super duper waterproof mascara πŸ˜‰ I love my guy so much and I love that he wears his heart on the outside like i do πŸ™‚

@NovaGrey:  me. I had one pair of earrings forever. Tried them at dress fitting and didn’t feel sure. Bought two new pairs, even though the first pair was way out of budget and non returnable. Went to second fitting and guess which pair I liked most? Yep…. Original. 

Also think its just so many options, as time passes things start to grow or numb on you…. I was set on a here comes the bride sign, bought one, got it, looks perfect. Except now I’m wondering what’s the point, isn’t that obvious enough? Plus, flower girl has a basket so ring bearer should carry it… But if he comes before flower girl as originally ordered, then that’s weird and awkward lol…. Sigh…. Need…more….wine…

@goingtotherooftopoflove:  Oh I hear you on the sappy feelings! I hear a song on the radio = tears. I am talking about Fiance about how nice things are = tears. Commercial = tears. lol I’m definitely bringing backup makeup to the wedding…

 

@Andthepupmakes3:  Looks like we’re definitely in the same boat. I think I just need to say to myself “everything I’ve picked out is fine” over and over like a chant. Maybe then I’ll be less crazy…

PEOPLE.  PEOPLE.  

There are 30 days left until my wedding.  Some of you have less time than that!  What do you have left to do?  Help me think of what I’m missing, pleeeeeeeeeeeease.

Earlier I was in tears because I love my FH so much.  Now I’m in a total meltdown mode because my dad just texted me “Four weeks to go!!! Ye Ha!! Love u, Dad”

It might seem so minor… but my dad doesn’t really text me.  Or contact me out of the blue for no other reason than OMG we’ve got a month to the wedding.  He’s a quiet, unassuming guy and generally I just talk with mum and it gets filtered through to him.  I’ve just never had that “daddy’s girl” relationship – but I’ve been working really hard to build something in the last year because after seeing my friend’s relationship with her dad at her wedding, I just felt bad for not putting in more effort myself.  His message was just so extraordinarily sweet of him that my eyes are all watery.

Which reminds me… I need to find a father/daughter dance song!

Girls I feel like a rockstar! FH decided to get a head start on a seating plan this afternoon since we had all but three RSVPs back (deadline was yesterday, had 30 people outstanding so chased everyone today, good decision as many had “forgotten”, grrrr). He went and bought post-its so we could colour code and play with it and after a lot of juggling we got it all sorted!  I feel like we’ve completed a 1000 piece jigsaw in world record time.  Once we had it done I turned it into a pretty pretty excel spreadsheet using the colour coding we used for our RSVP spreadsheet so it’s easier to send to our parents for feedback. We always knew we didn’t want to leave this late as I still have nightmares of my family trying to sort out my brother’s tables late the NIGHT BEFORE HIS WEDDING (ugh) but this is even beating my own deadline πŸ™‚ so of course we then spent the rest of the evening staring at it proudly as if we’d come up with some great work of art or somrthing πŸ˜› 

i should add.. we got so involved we didn’t have dinner until about 9pm, oops.

Productive weekend for us which is good as we only have three of them left! As well as sorting out tbe seating plan our celebrant emailed us the first draft of the ceremony script and with a few small changes that’s now ticked off. That had FH and I in tears again as well, she’s worded everything beautifully. We’re not having a long ceremony but I just love the way she’s put it together and the way she’s taken the questionnaires she got FH and I to fill out separately and woven some magic (we later compared noted and yet again couldnt believe just how similar we are :P)

@SouthernGirl:  that hair stylist is a liability… for your stress levels! eek.

@SouthernGirl:  ummm wow what a dumb mistake! You would think she would check a calendar before telling a bride she can’t do the job she committed to!

 

@goingtotherooftopoflove:  yay for getting two big things done!  I need to start my seating plan sooooon!

@SouthernGirl:  Unfortunately our venue requires a seating plan.  The more I think about it it was actually more like Tetris than a jigsaw… simply because we colour coded each group (black = bridal party, red = FH family, orange = FH parents friends, blue = my family, purple = my parents friends, green = mutual friends, yellow = FH work & other friends, fuschia = my friends).

The thing is… we’re having a head table and then when i was looking for something else on here I cam across all sorts of horrible threads about head tables saying they’re outdating and unpleasant etc etc etc!  We’d already decided to put non-bridal party partners at the head table with us but I’m still second guessing myself… the only thing that’s somewhat making my decision to go ahead clearer is that we simply don’t have any other room in our venue for a different sort of layout! (and I think my parents want us to have a head table anyway, even though they’re not at it)

This is what we have – names removed of course πŸ˜‰  

In more fun news… FASHION!  Just ordered these two dresses from Modcloth!  

Haven’t quite figured out what’s being worn to what yet and of course it will depend on how they both fit.  I already had a dress picked to wear to the cocktail party my parents are hosting for out-of-town guests the night before the wedding (rehearsal dinners don’t really happen here)… but now mum’s saying I shouldn’t wear it because I wore it on Valentines Day and posted photos on Facebook.  I really couldn’t care less… but I can’t really be bothered arguing and am thinking of switching to wearing it to the brunch the day after that we’re making a probably-very-short appearance at πŸ˜›  So probably one of the Modcloth dresses to the cocktail party and the other to a more relaxed hens dinner our mutual friends are having for me (I’m splitting my hens into two groups)

The “infamous” dress.  I really love it.  Am I being silly for not wearing it for the cocktail party I bought it for?

For the main hens I’m thinking of *shudder* rewearing this (Modcloth, again) dress I wore to our friend’s wedding in October (corally red maxi)
