Yay!!! But also, I have noticed that the past two weeks I get a sudden urge to cry! WTF? Then I am all blubbery and the smallest things set it off. They I’m super excited and can’t wait to do the next wedding planning activity, then I’m sad again. This rollercoaster of emotions is very draining and confusing.

I really just want the day to be here so the planning can stop because I think I’m done witht he planning. I’m ready to be married please!

today is my final “party”…. bachelor / bachelorette are going on today/tonight. I am so excited for it to almost be here but also freaking out bc we still have a lot of things to do an FH is really not into it!

to do:

finalize music (ceremony, entrances)

paper products (programs, menus, welcome letter, schedule)

potentially fix his ring (its a bit loose and i’m afraid for winter esp since guys are notorious for losing rings)

few final details for the guys (socks, ties, shirts)

gifts (parents, groom, maybe one more thing for my girls)

day of schedule for all vendors/ final meeting w venue

plan some sort of mini-moon….hoping for a fun little last minute get away

it doesn’t seem so bad but those are the things I have been procrasinating for months! haha (music especially – we love music but its been hard to find the “perfect” songs)

Can’t believe it’s getting so close! Aaaahhh!!


Things we have left to do:

Marriage License


Seating Chart

Write letters/cards to wedding party/parents

Photo list for Photographer

Makeup trial:today!

Hair trial: Monday!

Finalize plans for bachelor/bachelorette parties.

Invite people to rehearsal dinner/give the venue head count/menu choices.

Send payment for our photo booth.


I feel like I would never get everything checked off of my 500 lists I had laying around our office desk, but most of it is done! I’m dreading the seating chart and even the programs, but at least we still have time. Every time I try to picture myself on the wedding day I get butterflies in my stomach and a nervous feeling I can’t shake. I hope I’m not so overcome with nerves on that day that I don’t take in everything and enjoy it. Anyone else extremely nervous?
