Live from Wedding Central ~ 4 Days Out

Hello Kittens!

It’s CRUNCH TIME!  We’ve collected groomsmen from the airport, assigned everyone and their brother a job to do in preparation for the upcoming nuptials.  Things are marching forward and I am caught up in the whirlwind that is the WEDDING TSUNAMI.  (You can giggle all you like,but that’s what it feels like, my darlings!)

I have turned into THAT GIRL.  The one who is freaking out about the colour of dresses and matching tuxes (they don’t match at all, to let you know, and I don’t even care at this point), the logistics of getting around in what may be a grand thunderstorm, and wondering just how big those three teeny, weeny leaks are in the barn roof.  I guess we’ll find out soon!  🙂  The bridal preparations have begun with a fabulous hair colour yesterday, and a multitude of other waxing, plucking and painting of body parts to be done this week.  I will be the most fabulous version of myself that I can muster, and that’s as good as it gets, folks.

I have been talked down from ledges by my favorite ladies, and I am doing my best to keep some perspective.  Who cares if it pours?  Will it matter when I am surrounded by literally everyone I love in the world?  Not likely.  I am going to enjoy every second of it, and I hope our guests will too.

We went to the barn yesterday to see how things were looking, and it is grand indeed.  The ambiance is exactly what I was hoping for, and when it fills up with tables, flowers and people, it’s going to be perfect.  I’m so excited.

It's pretty tall...

Seriously...look at this giant box of awesome!!!!

Our guest/relative/friend Judy and her friend Marli have been working on our table flowers for weeks, and the final preparations have begun.  They have been robbing gardens all over town (sorry Mom!) for just the perfect combination of flowers to adorn our glorious tables.  I can’t wait to see them, and I am so glad to have two of the most creative flower-ladies working on our decor.  I hope they do end up making this some kind of career, because they have the excitement and passion that is totally contagious.  I have enjoyed all of the ideas, and have marveled at what they can do.  I really can’t wait to see it all come together after so much planning and agonizing decision-making!  🙂

I wanted to be sure to post so my friends don’t think I am losing my mind or anything.  I am definitely feeling the pressure, but it’s a good pressure, and it’s all going to come together beautifully.  We have the worlds greatest friends and family behind us and there is no way it can go wrong.  I don’t care if it pours, if the cake slides off the table, if our guests end up making out in the video booth…it’s ALL GOOD!  🙂  (ps. We totally encourage making out in the video booth, if you were wondering!)


Mostly, I can’t wait to marry the man that I love more than anything (other than my kids) in this world.  It has been the most amazing ride getting here, and I know the future will be even more wonderful.  I am so looking forward to meeting some guests that have become as ‘real’ as our friends and family, and we already love them.  I also can’t wait to hug everyone, to thank you for coming, and to let you know that I couldn’t imagine doing this without you all.  We are the luckiest people I know, and we will never take that for granted.

Who’s the lucky girl?  Well it’s me, of course…  😉

Lucky to have been where I have been”

  3. !!!!! I’m so excited for you guys! That barn is AWESOME! I don’t know if you’ll even see this but without putting more pressure on you I wanted to say, this is it. Your ONE day. You don’t want to spend it worrying over details that don’t really matter in the bigger picture. Get a ‘fuck it’ attitude the day of. It’s raining? Fuck it. The barn is leaking? fuck it. The cake is falling down? …you get the point. Sounds like that’s your plan and you realize what’s most important. I’m sure it will be everything you’re hoping for. 🙂 xo

  6. I know you’ve got to be excited! Can you believe the Big Day is almost here? You’re going to a beautiful bride because you’re just a beautiful person. I love that have you have the attitude of not caring if anything “bad” happens versus stressing over all that. I can’t wait to read the post about it all and see pictures!
