Happy Hour! {Wedding Edition}

12fe91eed77611e2bfae22000a9e0782_7 guys! Im getting married. IN FOUR DAYS! I can’t believe it is finally here! It has felt like forever! To say I’m excited would be a HUGE understatement!

You would think, being four days out that I would be done with everything, but in my true procrastinator form…I still have the longest to-do list ever, with projects I’m still working on! Oy vey! It WILL get done!

I bought FIVE pairs of shoes, because I can’t decide. I go in tomorrow for my final dress fitting, hopefully I can pick one pair. My indecisiveness is not helping in this planning process.

I’m a crazy control freak, so Ive been putting together a list of must-have photos for my photographer, I’m sure she loves that. But we have one hour between the ceremony and reception to get them all, and we have to include driving distance in there, so Ive been stressing out about it. Well, Lauren and Cassie, are geniuses, and Im sure so many of you have done it, but somehow I never thought to? We’re going to do a ‘first-look’ photo shoot well before the ceremony, then all the wedding party pictures! So smart, right? Hello 6am wake up call! 😉

oh oh! what are your favorite gifts you’ve either given to your bridesmaids or received from your bride? I have some ideas, but Id love some input. And please don’t give me grief about not having it completely done yet. Like I said above, true procrastinator.

I have two kids, give me a break!

Side note. Lately, I’m emoticon obsessed. Like, every text message includes four one. And all my instagram pictures definitely have them. I literally spend extra minutes just looking for one. Its getting pathetic, my soon-to-be hubs thinks I’m a nerd. I cant stop!

Let me poll you, what is your favorite, must-have picture from your wedding? Thankssomuch!

Okay, I have to cut this short. I need to use all the time I can in the next 72 hours to get everything done! Projects galore! Ill try to keep you updated, but I’m enjoying every minute of this week, and we’re celebrating a lot! 😉

You may also enjoy...

    Just relax! You can’t make 100% of everything be perfect, so just enjoy it. And for bridesmaid gifts, I’ve been in a lot of weddings and have rarely gotten a real gift. Normally, the bride will give the jewelry she wants you to wear with the dress and a clutch to put your phone, etc in at the recption. My sister was amazing and got us killer Coach purses and I’ve had a friend give out engraved shot glasses… but I dont think anyone actually expects anything exciting lol.

    P.S. When my best friend from high school got married, she accidentally ran a line of black mascara through her platinum blonde hair while getting ready! I sort of screamed and she just laughed (and then frantically fixed it). Things will happen. Keep calm and you can handle all of it 🙂

      And thank you so much!Im hoping once the day comes, I can relax, and let my control freak tendencies subside…hopefully! I know it won’t be perfect, but pretty darn close! 😛
      Thank you for the ideas for bridesmaids! Love the shot glasses!

    SO excited for you!!!! I bought my bridesmaids dresses for them as their real gift, but then my mom put together cute little beach bags, towels, sunscreen, magazines, etc. for them which they loved. Oh and you must tell your photographer to get a picture of your soon-to-be husbands face when he first sees you walking down the aisle. I know you will see him before, but capturing his expression will be priceless. 🙂
