    Oh I love this! Great topic… so let’s see if i can remember it all. 

    Blood: 4.5 inch heels + dance lessons + 2 people that have never danced = ripped up toe nails. I decided I needed to not just break in my wedding shoes but also wear them to dance practice to make sure I could move in them. I lost two toe nails…

    Sweat: I was inbetween sizes when I purchansed my dress so I went with a size smaller. Then had to spend the next year trying to fit into it. 4 days a week at the gym.

    Tears: I had a break down over my soon to be hubby playing in a softball game days before the wedding. I had crazy nightmares and he just refused to sit this one out. I lost my shizz and cried like a baby over all the terrible things that could happen.

    Blood- I nearly severed my pinky off while trying to remove a plate I had glue gunned to another plate for my cupcake stands with a steak knife ( smart girl) 7 stitches!

    i have burns on my fingers and a big burn on my thigh from said glue gun,

    I was drilling holes in my candleabras to hang crystals,  and drilled my thumb. ( smart girl)

    Sweat- drilling holes in candleabras. 

               Carting boxes to from home to venue. My ❤ has an office at our venue so I’m lucky to be able to store things there.

               Crunches to keep my tummy tight

    Tears- I am an emotional girl. I cry when I think of the song I’m going to walk down the aisle to, when I envision how the ballroom will look on our wedding day, when we got our marriage license a few days ago. Just about anything lovely makes me cry. 


    49 days!

    Blood: NONE YET OMGOODNESS it sounds scary! lol. 

    Sweat: Like most, trying to slim down for the dress! “sweating for the wedding” is a shirt I MUST have! 

    Tears: Sadly, too many already! The last time was when I cried over how expensive it’ll be to have the big wedding that my fiance wants. LOL Emotional bride over here!

    For my its just been blood and sweat. No crying for me!

    I was accidently stabbed when they were pinning my dress, so just a teeny, tiny drop of blood and luckily it didn’t get on my dress.

    There’s definetly been plenty of sweat! I’ve been working like crazy at the gym – already down 19 lbs!

    Blood: I cut my thumb while cutting peaches for jam (we are doing jam as favors)

    Sweat: Painting my mailbox/cardbox outside on one of the hottest days of the summer was a terrible idea!  I’m sure some of my sweat is mixed in with the paint as it was pouring off me that day.

    Tears: Too many too count.  Happy tears when I tried on my dress for my mom, stepmom and sister, sad/angry tears when I argued with my dad about not inviting his cousins to the wedding and overwhelmed tears when I stayed up late working on the invitations and just lost it.
