Today’s the first day I woke up and sort of thought: Holy @*#$, I’m getting married next week. Next week!
Our planning process has been blissfully low-key and stress-free. We’ve managed decisions and details pretty smoothly, giving everything thought but not overthinking or overdoing it. We're not doing a lot of the traditional stuff: we don't have limos and wedding parties, centerpieces or a sit-down dinner. We're just having a beautiful, free-form, intimate soirée. It’s been easy for the most part and, in these past couple of weeks in particular, with notes from guests, final meetings with vendors, doing a last walk-through of the space, I’ve just been excited.
But yes, now that the wedding is next weekend, not down the road, I think some stress is creeping in. I need to tend to last remaining details… ensure that I can zip! my! dress!... I want to know that my hair and makeup are going to make me feel like a million dollars. I'm getting nervous about seeing everyone together in one room (it's been 20 years since I've been with my mom and dad at the same time), and taking vows in front of them… I'm worried that I'm going to be a crying mess.
Nine days and counting. This is all about to happen! Any advice or words of wisdom??
