It's a month away.
The next time it turns the 10th of a month, I'll be getting ready to marry a cute funny bald guy.
I'm excited and nervous and busy and giddy and CAN'T FREAKING WAIT.
A lot of things are done. A lot of things are not done. This weekend we're working on favors and homemade decorations for the reception, and I have a conference call with the wedding director at High Hampton (where we'll be) this afternoon to discuss very random details. Very random.
One thing I'd like your opinion on is a guest book. Did you have one? Do you ever look at it? Have you seen any creative guest book ideas that I should know about? I've seen some things where folks write on rocks that is cool, and the thumbprint tree is fun (seen that?), but I don't know if I can get that made in time. Talk to me.
Life is kind of stressful. We have this week, which ends in 2 days. Then we have 4 weeks until our wedding. Jay will be gone for work for two of them. He's not exactly looking forward to it, given the timing, but it is what it is and we'll make the most of the time we have here, together. We're both VERY MUCH looking forward to the fall when we might have 7 minutes to relax together. Starting a new job 3 months before your wedding isn't ideal, especially when said new job's busy season is the summer leading up to said wedding.
Just some advice.
Mainly, it's going FAST. Every time we hit another weekend I'm sort of baffled - a few seconds ago it feels like I was saying "8 more weeks!" and now, this Saturday, it's FOUR WEEKS AWAY. I'm becoming impatient with the details, though, and TOTALLY GIVING IN to the hype and capitalism of it all. The more time I have, the more I decide that WE REALLY NEED COASTERS or some other waste of money that is cute but really really not necessary.
What I'm saying is, the real stuff is done, so I'm making new things to do.
The remaining things we have to do are fun, luckily! Buying presents for our loved ones, trying on clothes....it's exciting and great and coming so quickly!
The main new thing we've done recently is OUR VERY OWN HASHTAG. I know. Dumb. I want all the photos in one place, though, because I've got grand plans for them, and that seemed to be a good way to track this fun planning experience.
You should follow us! On any of the social media things you like. #funnyloveforever, and if you want to mock us or wish us well or check in on our wedding weekend we'd LOVE THAT - the # is for everyone.
I need to know about guest books and ALSO if there's anything that people forget or overlook on their last few weeks of planning. There are a lot of details, and I'd love to know your best advice! My friend Cara promised to keep me bourbon-fueled over the next few weeks so....what else should I be doing?
It's happening, people. 31 days.
