May be easier to say what I’m not freaking out about!

Just the whole walking in, and walking down the aisle, and standing up there…..yep.

Freaking out just begins to cover how I feel.

Anyone else?

LOL, right now–I think a little bit of everything. We had to move our date way up so we are planning everything in just over a month so I think I’m feeling a bit overwhelmed right now. Halfway there and the only major things I’m really worried about are our cake and alterations. Luckily, I have back-up plans for both. And everything else is coming together. Family and friends are amazing and being so helpful. We could not do it all without them. So of course, beig the overly ambitious person I am, I’m planning all these DIY projects. We’ll see how it turns out. Fi is being super helpful which makes a big difference.

one week!!!

I’m annoyed that i’m not nervous at all…!

i’d been told by my married friends not to lose too much weight because in the last 2-3 weeks i’d drop a few pounds just for being nervous, without anny effort, and so not to reach my ideal weight before that or else i’d be TOO skinny on my wedding day.  Yeah right… i can’t stop eating and not only have i not lost any weight these past weeks, i’ve actually gained a couple pounds… oops! 

Now i’m going to have to feed on air for the week if i want to lose them and have my dress fit nocely… geeshh why do I listen to these women!?

@raspberrymacaron:  me too! I should have known better, I always gain weight rather than lose from stress (unlucky). My dress is also a super fitted mermaid style, so an ounce of weight gain is going to be a problem. This is probably my biggest stressor at the moment!

(I know I’m not a May 5 bride & shouldn’t be commenting on this thread, but I’m taking liberties because I’m the same weekend Tongue Out)

@raspberrymacaron:  Your “feed on air” comment made me LOL!

6 days to go!! The only things I have left to do are pack up the welcome bags (with help from my bmaids and a few bottles of wine!), email my caterer the final seating chart and checklist, and pack for the day-of and our mini-moon! 

Feeling good about it… not stressed, yet! Hoping that I won’t have a sudden meltdown. oh boy!!

@raspberrymacaron:  Our wedding was awesome! We spent a week in Maui on our honeymoon and now are on our way back home to Memphis, TN. Your driving through the US sounds fun! Congrats on being married! I love saying “my husband!”

I am happy to be settling into married life and very happy we moved our wedding date up even though it’s been insanely busy. We just got our marriage license back yesterday so working on the name change and thank you cards now. We were just joking yesterday that we are official now. It’s been a whirlwind here since we planned the whole thing in less than a month and then we had to throw our house together because my MOH/best friend needed a place to stay for a couple of months since she just relocated halfway across the country (she moved in exactly 1 week after the wedding). Now we’re in recovery mode–the honeymoon will hopefully be a 1 year anniversary trip to Hawaii and in the meantime, hopefully we can get my health back in order.Now I’m just dying to get our pics back so I can share with those who weren’t able to come–and we’ll plan a trip back home to celebrate with  my family who couldn’t make it out.
