I say this every week, and I will continue to say this – I don’t know where the weeks are going. I’m in love with the fact that the time is flying by, and that after the harsh winter from hell that we’re already having 90-degree days in Raleigh, but as far as wedding planning goes, this time rocketing by thing is a little scary. Nevertheless, taking the time out to make a few lists and holding myself accountable by telling you guys about what I’ve been up to has been so helpful.
So first things first.
I had another stress dream last night, this one involving my wedding dress.
My dress has long been ordered, and it’s to die for. It’s sexy, and still classy, and perfect for the barn bash we’re throwing in August. But in my dream last night, it was anything but the things I just described.
When I looked in the mirror, the dress contained this like, pink piping around the shoulders. “This isn’t what we ordered,” I said to myself, and I ripped the silky piping off, to reveal a wedding dress that looked like a golden suit of armor underneath. Then I woke up
sobbing late for work.
Stress dreams aside, things are great! Save-the-dates are out, like I said last week, and there were only a few people who asked about theirs, one of whom gave me his address incorrectly (my sister did that too 😦 ). We are meeting the DJ tonight, and I’ve pretty solidly nailed down the costs for him, and for the rehearsal dinner, which came in a hefty amount less than I thought it was going to be for about 20 folks! I love saving money!
The crafting part has been really fun too. Over the past few weeks, I have been trolling the Craiglist for mason jars + jelly jars for favors, and at first, I couldn’t find anything, and then the heavens exploded with jars. I have a friend getting married this weekend, and she has over 50 jars. I have so many jars that I’ve either purchased for cheap or gotten for free. And now, it’s just a matter of painting/decorating them/filling them with pretty things.
Alsoooooo, I finally got to see my younger sister in person, who’s also engaged too. I’m getting married in 3 months, and she’s thinking a December wedding.
Bahhh this is so fun!
My brides, how are you hanging in there?
