I'll be gone for awhile....
....because I'm getting married this weekend!!! We are 3 days away! I'm just finishing up small details right now. Nothing very stressful. So far all of my hurdles, emotional drama and any other stress-causing problems have been solved thanks to you ladies and my wonderful friends and family I'm surrounded with. My dad is coming into town tomorrow and I am beyond excited because I haven't seen him in 18 months!! (He lives in AZ while I'm in MI). FI is working so we'll have some good daddy-daughter time, plus we'll be practicing our awesome dance. Friday we are having a laid back BBQ - it is Labor Day weekend after all. Saturday is the rehearsal and the day I wahs my hands of planning! I got everything packed up today and made a special binder full of instructions and pictures for how to set everything up and extra copies of our itinerary, contact info and ceremony (just in case). My planner will get the binder and we will go over everything before the rehearsal starts (I also boxed everything up according to placement - bar decor in one box, candles in one box, ceremony stuff together, etc) so it should be really easy for her. And I get to stop stressing and worrying about that stuff and I get to just be a super excited BrIDe! I have been so giddy. Tuesday night was my last night of work and I was literally jumping up and down and skipping down the halls! bahaha!
I would not have been able to pull off what I think is going to be a beautiful wedding without your ladies inspiration, encouragement, advice and guidance. No detail was too big or small to tackle thanks to all of you. When I was excited, frustrated, angry or sad you were all there. And we have paid for this entire on our own (paid in full now!! no payments to worry about on our honeymoon! woohoo!) and thanks to many DIY projects and budget-friendly ideas from PW we were still able to plan an elegant, semi-formal, dream wedding. Thank you sooo soooo much!! I will be thinking of you over the weekend. I have many pics and different DIY projects to post about but they'll wait until after the wedding.
We have a couple days between the wedding and honeymoon so I'm sure I'll pop on here real quick with an update about how it all went. Thank you all a million times!! And keep thinking sunny weather thoughts so "Isaac" doesn't rain out our ceremony! :D
****huge grin, excited butterflies in stomach, jumping and skipping****
