Obviously when we first got engaged, I was over the moon excited. All I want to do is marry the love of my life and have it be a fun day where we get to celebrate our love and relationship with all our family and friends.
Anyone who has ever got married knows that this whole planning a wedding thing is NOT easy. It's safe to say it's been extremely stressful and lately I feel like I'm running on empty. The moment we say "I Do" and turn to walk down that aisle I will hopefully feel like the weight of the world has been lifted. I feel bad for anyone that has read my tweets, or come in to contact with me because I'm pretty much an emotional mess. We are not planning an elaborate over the top wedding, but every little detail adds to our plate.
Please don't get me wrong. This wedding is a dream come true. I cannot wait to be able to call Chuck my husband after all these years. So in the midst of all this craziness I want to take some time and document all the amazing things that are happening and the great things about wedding planning.
Seeing my vision of purple and gold all come together the closer it gets is really exciting.
The moment the final invite went in the mail I felt like I had just completed a marathon. Where's my medal?
When the RSVP's come back in the mail it feels like a small party each day...getting mail really is a lot of fun.
I keep reliving my bachelorette party and bridal shower and look at the pictures at least a few times a week. It's so nice to be so loved and surrounded with amazing people.
I used a glue gun for the first time, and no one got hurt.
Getting a lot of "Congratulations" from everyone under the sun is really nice.
I get to eat sweets...it's part of the menu tasting. Winning!
There's so many more things that make this whole ride fun, but the most important one is my fiance. I have been so grateful that through all of this Chuck has continued to be by my side.
We face the challenges, hiccups in the road, the meetings, the deadlines....every little thing, together. It reminds me that I truly have chosen the right man and I can't wait to make this official to begin the rest of our life together as husband and wife.
Through all the craziness, the seating charts, picking the dresses and tuexedos, choosing the first dance song, running to meetings with vendors and the million & one other things we have to do...the one thing that has kept me going is our love. Love is enough.
Thank you for dealing with all of my wedding posts, and letting me be real. I appreciate all of you reading and coming back for more.
Until next week friends...
