LOL Today is 12 days from the wedding. Family “events” start in 10 days!
Seriously? I was just chatting with My Guy about the “stress situation.” Neither of us really feels THAT stressed.We are not running around like mad people- trying to get things done! I worked very hard throughout this planning process to make sure that we only had little things to by the time this two week mark came up.
As of today these are a few of the things I am facing:
- We had our engagement ring made… that will not be finished until Friday. Originally, we thought it would be done by September 7th. But the jeweler just hired a person who does hand carving and this gal had a trip to Holland scheduled already- so that pushed back the date until THIS Friday! I am SOOO excited to see this ring- hopefully it WILL be this Friday!
- I tried and tried to get this one make-up artist company to talk to me about doing the make-up for my wedding. They were terrible about communication! Then a friend recommended I talk to someone at the MAC counter and have them come do my make-up. (Mine and The Girl’s) But the gal I met, and liked, has been out on medical leave- and I guess she doesn’t have email access regularly because she isn’t really getting back to me frequently or quickly either! I finally just asked her to call me when she gets this next email. (Between starting this post and now- she called back! Poor thing has still been in and out of the hospital! We’ll schedule the run through this week- and she is still planning to be at the wedding!
- My Hair! ok- I love my hair when it has a nice touch of red. It is so warm and looks nice with my skin tone… so my poor hair dresser (No pressure doing wedding hair!) She wanted to make sure the red didn’t fade too much before the wedding- and it is way to “orange” right now! I called her- and she is great and of course I am going to go back in on Thursday to have it fixed! But in the meantime- I am a VERY RED HEAD… LOL
- The cake… Oh I am so excited about the cake- so sad almost that we will be cutting it so quickly into the evening so everyone can enjoy it’s yumminess! Lemon cake with Raspberry cream cheese frosting covered with fondant. The only thing is… she didn’t have the right color blue last time I stopped by- and I haven’t seen the sketches of MY cake. I have seen what we want to do using a photo from Pinterest (of course!)… just trusting that they will do a great job! They are wonderful to work with and I totally trust their creativity- I guess it’s just one of those control freak issues- just waiting to see it in the end of the day! I am not going to tell you all about the cake- you can see it in photos later- I am just excited and have to leave SOMETHING to your imagination.
I don’t think that this is too much. I am feeling so good about where I am that sometimes the fact that I am NOT running around like a chicken with my head cut-off makes me feel like I am missing something! LOL
My Guy and I were talking on Sunday- we both feel good about where we are at- BUT at the same time- there is just this little “edge” that we both feel like we are sitting on a bit. I know for me? My poor baby sometimes can just look at me a little cross-eyed and on go the water works tears! I don’t know WHY I am crying really- I just am! LOL For him, this stress kind of manifests itself in being tired, a little extra cranky… but the good thing is- we are both aware of this feeling in ourselves- and in each other and are both trying to be extra sensitive right now to those things.
One thing I really tried to do in our planning process- is to NOT have a ton to DO these two weeks. I know how we are, I know how stress impacts us, and I really wanted to still have time to snuggle on the couch, go for walks and rides with My Guy and remember the whole REASON we are doing this wedding production! US and our LOVE! I really feel good about this- abotu where we are at and what we have left to do…
Lot’s of little things left to do- but I DID hire a Day of Coordinator- SHE already makes me feel so much peace- knowing that I do not have to do anything the day of except get ready and enjoy my friends and family and same for My Guy…
Stress? Me? What stress?
