One Week Update

Oh holy hell.
Seven DAYS!
Excitement, anxiety, nervous energy,'s all there.  

Yesterday we had our final meeting with the caterer and wedding planner.  It simultaneously calmed me & gave me a minor panic attack, while we plotted out every detail & my to-do list grew ten-fold.

Friday night bridesmaid and all-around-awesome lifesaver/friend/confidant Kathryn came over and helped label water bottles.  Post to come.  and Sidenote: I am way too detail oriented.

I recently made our cake topper.  Another post to come. (again, detail obsessed)

Mike applied for, and picked up, our wedding license all without me even showing up to the courthouse once.  Hooray for proof of identification and a signature to "prove" I exist.

Still to do:

-get Mike a mani/pedi today! (hehe)
-finish writing my vows
-practice our first dance
-buy 5 more frames for the table numbers
-print out table numbers
-print out escort cards
-put said escort cards in alphabetical order
-print menu for each place setting
-pick up ketuba (which may or may not be ready by Thursday...)
-pick up borrowed earrings from jeweler
-pick up steamed dress & veil
-drop off the fifteen-bagillion things at the venue on Friday
-get my car washed
-get nails done with bridesmaids
-get one last spray tan
-pack for the honeymoon
-hope it doesn't rain on June 19th
-try to remember everything else I'm forgetting...

The part I'm most excited about? (Aside from marrying my love) -- Seeing all my friends and family together in one place, to celebrate us.  How cool is that?  It's going to be a blast!!


  1. Oh, the hectic excitement: I remember it well. Enjoy this FUN time!!! (Despite your ever growing to-do list :) )

  2. Yay! So excited for you! And remember, it's okay to ask for help. That's what friends and family are for. :) I'll be thinking of you on the big day!

  3. Labeling the water bottles? Really?! I expect a really good reason why water bottles need labels when you dedicate a post to the labeling of said water bottles. (I'm giggling now.... and reminding myself that you are getting married in SEVEN DAYS!!) Have fun!

  4. Aaaaah! I'm so excited for you! I've been lurking around watching all your planning - and I can't believe it's so close! WOOOOO!

  5. SO EXCITING!!! Sounds like you've got it under control!!! Excited to see your upcoming posts! :) Enjoy this last week as a single lady!!!
