What a ride this last eight months has been. It’s almost sad to see it all end, but so exciting that something new is about to begin. I stood out with my parents on the porch this morning envisioning with them the whole layout for the wedding night. It will be beautiful, full of lights, decorations, and most of all family and friends to help us celebrate our change from single to married.
Last week I was busy with last minute running around. I purchased several needed items for our honeymoon, along with some more odds and ends for the wedding. I was also able to finish my headpiece. It now has lots of crystals, feathers, and a few beads throughout it. I decided to embellish the headpiece we purchased from Davids Bridal by myself. Also… I’ve almost finished all of the bridesmaids bags, just a few more finishing touches to be done.
This week will be insane. My last day of work is Monday. Then Tuesday I start in on the baking. Cookies and cupcakes are the first thing we will start in on. They can go in the freezer until we need them.
Tuesday evening I’m heading into town to get my nails done, and tan for the last time. Then my sister scheduled a facial for her and I that will finish off the day on a relaxing note. Wednesday I start on the cake. That will take most of the day and that evening is the rehearsal dinner, we will have quite a crowd here.
I am looking forward to rehearsal practice so hopefully there is no surprises on Friday. Thursday will be decoration day and also piecing the cake together, with the final frosting the day of the wedding. My aunt, along with bridesmaids will be inside, outside, and all over the place helping decorate and make everything wedding perfect.
Friday the hair stylist will be here at 8 A.M. to start in on all the girls hair. I’ll put the final touches on the cake, and get my hair done last. Photos start around 3:30, so the florist will deliver our flowers at 3:00 and this big show will get on the road!
Thank you all for following my journey as the Wanna Be Bride, it was fun to journal weekly and see the changes as the months flew by. After the wedding Teri (mom) will post photos so you can see how everything turned out after months of following us. Thank you all for your encouragement as sometimes this Wanna Be Bride got a little stressed. I hope this blog was fun and maybe helpful to someone who is thinking about having a backyard wedding. So… stay tuned. There will be interesting things to tell after the wedding I’m sure.
Thank you so much,
The Wanna Be Bride… who is so close to her happy ending!
