I’m still waiting on my programs from the printer!  A little annoying, but I’ll deal.  I also have to go to our venue tonight and drop off all of the decorations so they can make the place b-e-a-u-tiful. Other than that, I’m chill.

Every keeps asking me if I’m nervous–I’m not sure why. What’s there to be nervous about? i get to marry my best friend!

Feeling pretty calm, but anxious for the day to get here already!  My venue called me today and asked why I requested that they not set-up chairs.  I explained that I am renting chairs because they’re chairs are ugly.  Apparently I’m not allowed to bring in any furniture so I will be using their ugly chairs….on a brighter note, the chairs are black so they don’t clash with my colors. 

Have a few things to pick up.  Will be making my centerpieces and bouquets on Friday morning (Sam’s Club bulk flowers).

I had SO hoped that I would have been finished with everything by now, but doesn’t look like that’s happening. This is till what I have left to do:

  • Add peacock feathers to my fascinator
  • Add combs to my BMs fascinators
  • Finish ceremony arch
  • Put together table numbers
  • Put together ceremony programs
  • Cut up fruit for the wedding
  • Put together signature drink favors

Hopefully, I think that’s all. I’m hoping to finish the majority by Thursday.

I’m getting so excited and anxious for it to be here already! I do have a few small projects/errands still left but nothing too stressful.  So excited to finally see all the planning come together. And of course can’t wait for the getting married part πŸ˜€

Hope everyone has a wonderful wedding day!

I can’t believe it’s almost here! It doesn’t seem like we’ve been engaged for a year.

Pretty much everything is done except for writing cards for the bridesmaids and getting double sided tape.We have our rehearsal tomorrow then it’s relax mode, nails on Saturday, hanging with my family Saturday night, then wedding!!

I know my day is close because I can see it on the 5-day weather forecast!!

Good luck to everyone!

I’m pretty much done. We have a list of things to remember to bring to the venue. I need to pick up one frame for the sign that I have already made. I also need to make two more centerpieces (will take less than 30 min) and one different centerpiece for our sweetheart table.I finished my veil last night although I am not too happy, so I may not wear it.

I need to get my mani and pedi done on Friday or Saturday and I need to pick up my dress from the alterations a day before. It’s being stored there so that it won’t get too wrinkled.

I had my last dress fitting yesterday and the dress is too big πŸ™ I accidently lost a couple of pounds and although regular clothes fit the same, the dress became quite loose in my chest area πŸ™ So, I’m on a mission of eating pasta and sandwiches for the next few days πŸ™‚ The sad part is that I actually need to lose those pounds and I would be extremely happy, but in this case the dress is falling down and I have to gain it back πŸ™

I have a hair appointment today, pedi tomorrow. 

I have to finish all my favours. We’ll work on that today. I have to wrap the gifts for my girls. 

I’m pretty calm. It’s not going to go perfect so I can’t freak out about the little things. I don’t think it’s hit me yet. I’m extremely calm. I have a little bit of anxiety about a detail here or there, but it goes away quickly. 

I cannot believe this is happening! I’m so Excited!!!

LOL… I’m so over this!  I loved planning my wedding.  And we are doing everything ourselves.  But seriously after Saturday, I could never ever imagine doing this again.  πŸ™‚  Can’t wait!

Final touches to be finished tonight.  Thought it would have been done last night, but had an impromtu dinner party that did not end until 11:30PM.  My goodness I am so sleepy today.  I’m falling asleep at my work desk. 

Thursday- mani/pedi, drop everything off to the venue, rehearsal, rehearsal dinner.

Friday- the big show! 

Saturday- relief and relaxation!

I’m relaxed, but I’m pretty sure I need to make a list so I don’t forget anything. πŸ™‚
