ok, so my post has no actual perpose, but whatever!
i am just sooooooo excited. it is right around the corner! i didnt even care about the whole planning stuff a month ago, it had gotten so old. but now i have gotten all excited again! i cant wait to marry FH!!!!
I agree, despite all the crap that's gone on this past week (car needed $$$ repair, mom had a Dr's thing, etc) I still can't believe it's only a week away! It feels really weird to say to people "I'm getting married next week." It's hard to believe that after this weekend I've got 1 day of work, the 4th holiday, then I go to work Wed morning and that's it! My MOH flies in at 1pm and the wedding chaos begins. Good luck everyone!
Wow, I didn't realize we had the same wedding date...we've got so much in common--July 8th, "momzillas", etc.! (I'm not bashing your mom, just remembering that our moms sound like they have similar wedding outlooks based on your earlier post.)
FH moved into our apartment earlier this week and I feel like we're having a slumber party! Of course, we've had to go furniture shopping and unpack and clean his old place, which is no fun, but before we go to bed we get to hang out and talk and cuddle and it's just so much fun! Of course, some of his habits are more annoying than I expected (why do you put dirty boxers on the COUCH??) but we'll get it worked out :) And today is my last day of work! On Sunday we're heading up to WV (long drive!) which is where we're getting married. On Wednesday I'm having my portrait done, Thursday is the bachelorette party, Friday is the bridesmaid luncheon, rehearsal, and rehearsal dinner, and Saturday is the big day!! It's going to be a busy week!
Oh, my sister (she's 18 and the MOH) has started sending me things in the mail leading up to my bachelorette party. The other day I got an e-mail that said "On the first day of getting married, my bridesmaids sent to me a man with a big wee-wee!" And there was a picture of a guy who was wearing clothes but appeared to be well-endowed...tee hee! The next day I got a small package in the mail: On the second day of getting married, my bridesmaids sent to me two bars of Dove and a man with a big wee-wee. I didn't get it at first, but then I realized "two turtle doves" like in the Christmas song! Of course the twelve days of Christmas begin on Christmas day, but that's okay...I just can't believe my sister is doing all this...it's so cute and funny! I also got an invitation to the bachelorette party, which will begin at a yummy Italian restaurant...I guess the rest of it is a secret :) My sister, although 5.5 years younger, is quite a bit wilder than I am, so who knows where the evening will lead us!
Anyway, I'll probably be around the boards a few more times before the big day, but not as frequently since I'll certainly be busy with last-minute wedding errands. Congrats to the July 8th (and 7th!) brides! Can't wait to hear all about your weddings!! Hooray :)
Yahoo July 8th...ive been watching my extended forcast like every second and it says mostly sunny and 80 degrees..PERFECT i cant wait i cant beliee its next weekend OMGGGGG
i was so stressed last night but im okya now everything is just falling into place except that my BM picked her dress up from alterations and had stains on it...she told them to dry clean it! I HOPE they come out
Good point about the weather Christine...I hadn't thought to look at the extended forecast until you mentioned it! My hometown is supposed to be high 84, mostly sunny--hooray!! Our wedding and reception are both indoors, but we still hope to have nice weather for outdoor pictures, etc.
Yeah!! I'm so excited but yet so nervous too. I feel like I have everything under control but I still have this crazy feeling like I'm missing something. Congratulations to everyone!!! I can' wait to share pictures with all of you!
Just make sure you and your FH's take a moment to let things sink in during the reception - the whole thing becomes such a blur afterwards... DH and I took a minute and stood by the head table and just watched our guests dancing and having a good time. He leaned over and said to me, "let this all sink in, all these people are here for US". It is the most exciting time ever, but it sure goes by fast, so I just thought I'd share a little advice :)
Excited, frazzled, can't believe it's a week away! FH and I just took a walk and decided we would somehow make time to go to a movie this weekend so we don't totally overload on wedding stuff. Our ceremony is finally in place, so now we can print our programs. FH picked up the rings yesterday, and they are just beautiful. I can't wait to finish up the last details and get to our event. And then Hawaii!
eke!!!! yeah, FH is just glad that in another 5 days, he'll never have to bother driving back home after we go out for the eveing!!! i know the commute is killing him.
we had his b day sat, the fourth on tues and then the wedding stuff starts fri, though i am taking thurs off!!! hard to beleive i'll be mrs this time next week and in italy in another week after that!!!
congrats my fellow 7th 8th ers!!! yeah, even though i got back from a lovely day at the beach i am a bit bummed it was sooo lovely this weekend. i had this whole theory of probability that the more crappy saturdays we had in a row, the better my chances of having a gorgeous wedding day would be (this is also the same concept that has allowed my to never lose whilst playing roulette at the casinos) .
if it does rain, ill be a bit dissapointed, but i wont be upset or anything. so i will pray for sun, and if not, make the most of it. how could it be a bad day, regardless of weather, if i am going to marry fh at the end of it!!!!
ScotsGrrl, we're going to Hawaii too! What islands are you going to? We're spending five days on Maui and two on the Big Island. Soooo excited...we'll need a nice vacation after all this wedding stuff!
FH and I drove up to my parents' house yesterday. It is a 600-mile trip so we were quite tired when we arrived! Of course my mom started accosting me about wedding stuff as soon as I got out of the shower this morning. She's upset because, while I bought a pretty new dress for the bridesmaid luncheon on Friday, I don't have white shoes to go with it. I was planning to wear the black dress shoes I have, but she totally flipped out. So hopefully I can find some white shoes on Wednesday! My parents' house is a bit of a pressure-cooker but at least I have FH here to keep me sane! Two of my bridesmaids who are from my hometown arrived today, so we're going out with them tonight...I'm so excited to see everyone!
Well, I am not a July 8th bride...let alone a july bride, but I get excited for everyone who's wedding is right around the corner when they post....makes me wish that mine was just as soon as yours :). I hope everything goes great for you, and all you other July brides....and can't wait to see pictures(so you better post them when you can, lol) Good luck on your day!!!!!!!!
