My gown has been steamed. Gifts have been wrapped. DJ’s and cakes and limos have been confirmed. Place cards have been printed. Nails have been polished. Checks have been written.
There’s really not much more to do before Saturday. I keep waiting for some disaster to occur, or for someone to point out some major wedding component that I completely forgot. Call me crazy, but at this moment, less than 48 hours out…. I am quite calm.
Tomorrow Mama Dish and I will head to the florist and give our seal of bridal approval, and barring any loose ends that need to be tied up, we will head to the church for the rehearsal!
It all seems very surreal. Everyone told me how quickly the big day would arrive, but I guess at certain points it seemed like it would never happen. Making several life changes at once was stressful, just like everyone said it would be, (quitting my job, moving, cohabitating for the first time) but that’s the way life is sometimes. For better or worse… everything happens at once.
While I cannot wait until Saturday, I am trying to take everyone’s advice and enjoy the anticipation. I feel so grateful for everyone around us. I feel so fortunate to be entering into this union with total confidence. And of course, I feel so blessed that so many of our loved ones will be there to help us celebrate.
I will share with you one last thing before I go off and get hitched to the man of my dreams. (No seriously, he is.) In my last entry, I believe I mentioned the gorgeous quilt Mama Dish made us for our wedding. On the back, she wrote us a message. I think E.E. Cummings can sum up my feelings right now far better than I can:
