Here we are, just three days away from the wedding. I honestly can’t believe how quickly everything has gone by. I still remember every moment of the day Darren proposed. Throughout the past 11 months, little by little, everything has come together. From finding my dress, picking out a reception location, to attending the bridal shower and bachelorette party and working on final details.
With the exception of a few minor things, everything has been completed. Now it’s time to sit back and relax in the final days before packing everything up, setting up the ceremony and spending time with our friends and family.
Looking back, I never really felt rushed or overly stressed while planning. There were a few bumps along the way but nothing major. I did have a minor meltdown when Darren was supposed to go to Brazil the week before the wedding and I didn’t think we could get everything done, but a delay in the trip calmed me down and I’ve been able to enjoy these final weeks of planning.
If you ask me how I’m feeling, I’m really not sure. Its actually quite bittersweet. I’m glad to be done planning and looking forward to the big day, but sad that what took 11 months to plan and coordinate will be over so quickly. I’m relatively calm, which is opposite of how I usually feel towards most big events, or really anything. I’m incredibly emotional, I’ve cried more times this week than I think I have in the past year. But I’m also absolutely excited! I can’t wait to walk down the aisle on Saturday to marry such an amazing man. I’ve been looking forward to my wedding day for almost my entire life, and even though it won’t be at a lighthouse in Maine or in the mountains in Colorado, I really couldn’t ask for a better day that we have planned.
So just like every monthly update, here’s everything that needs to happen in three days:
-Manicure and pedicure
-Attend wedding rehearsal
-Attend rehearsal dinner
-Decorate reception hall
-Get makeup and hair done
