Well, we’re having a “destination” wedding in Las Vegas… and the only thing I have planned currently is to take our parents & my grandmother to see the Cirque du Soleil show LOVE. Other than that… I don’t want to make a whole lot of plans. Of course, I have 6.5 months to go still… so I could completely change my mind as time gets closer!

I didn’t really do anything on the day before the wedding other than drive to the hotel (3 hours away from my parents’ house, where we had been staying), have a short rehearsal, and a little bit of socializing with the guests and bridal party, since everyone arrived that day too (destination wedding).

One thing I had forgotten to do though was to paint my nails. I ended up doing that alone in my hotel room at 10pm the night before the wedding. Made a huge mess (I’ve never been good at painting nails without making a mess), had to use a blow-dryer to help the process along, and went to sleep past midnight! So my recommendation is to get your nails done early! πŸ™‚

I think we’ll be taking the bridal party out to dinner most likely and maybe my family (no formal rehearsal dinner as far as I know). Maybe a few last minute details to drop off at the site and that sort of thing and if we’re making food ahead of time we’ll be doing that. Other than that, probably calling vendors and whatnot to confirm the times.

Hi Veronica! You’re getting close, girl!

The day before, I’m going to the SF flower market with my cousin (who’s a florist) to pick out our flowers!! Then.. we’re going to make bouquets. I’m hoping to get my mani pedi on the Thursday before the big day.

I think I’ll get my nails done with my mom for a little R&R and leave most of the day open for anything last minute that comes up. In the late afternoon we’ll head over to the site for the rehearsal, then the rehearsal dinner.

This is my plan for tomorrow…

Wake up and finish doing my buttloads of laundry (we have a million girls staying at my place tomorrow night so I need all clean towels, blankies and sheets)

Shower…

Two of my BMs are coming over and we’re going to bake and set up all the funsies for the sleepover. (Snacks, mani and pedi stuff galore, and facial supplies)

Rehearsal from 5:30-6 @ the venue

Dinner from 6-7:30ish at my favorite mexican restaurant.

Then we’re off the my place for lingerie/bacherorette fun!! πŸ™‚

I’m SO excited πŸ™‚

@Bella13 – I have loved reading your posts these past few days–your exhuberance is infectious! You’ve gotten me excited for my own final days before the wedding and got me thinking maybe it won’t be totally stressful. Thank you!

Congratulations in advance and have a wonderful weekend!

Ours was a destination wedding and I really enjoyed our time before the wedding. We arrived Thurs night. On Fri morning, then-FI and his Groomsmen and my Bridesmaid or Best Man who were there with us went into town to do a few things. I went and got my nails done πŸ™‚ My sister and a few others arrived at lunchtime so we checked into our awesome chalet and all went out to lunch together at a distillery – delicious food AND schnapps tasting! Then back to the venue for our rehearsal which was followed by an early BBQ dinner and back to the chalet for wine, cookies, and “The Bodyguard” on TV. In the morning we ate together then I went to the day spa for an hour and a half while they did who knows what. I had a champagne-bubble bath followed by a full-body exfoliation. THIS IS MY TOP RECOMMENDATION. I was like a rag doll after that, I was *so* relaxed. Everyone who saw me before the ceremony commented on how happy and relaxed I was. The time to myself to feel pampered and think about the day and what it meant to me was absolutely invaluable and I’d highly recommend it.

@vonnegirl and @Miss Britt- you girls are so sweet! I really am SO excited. I got a little stressed this afternoon, but my man always calms me down by asking “what will stressing about this do for you in the long run?” and I realize… nothing! So I try and just go on my merry way. haha I’m so happy I was able to share in all of my planning and final moments with all of you bees

@verosara- you’re just two short weeks after me! yayy! Isn’t it the best feeling ever?! I think I may be bummed on monday when I have to return to my normal life. SOO I’ll just have to live vicariously through you and all of the other bees with weddings coming up πŸ™‚
