I just want to be married. Yes, I want to be surrounded by family and friends, but I feel like I'm getting lost in the minutia and am losing sight of the bigger picture. I'm getting married for a life with Austin, so why is this event making us argue? Ah!! Learn more about our wedding here!
I am getting married 10 hours away in Buffalo, NY, so any trip to Buffalo is a production. This weekend, I am heading there for my bachelorette party #1, bridal shower #2, and bridal shower #3 (yes, I know I am a spoiled bride).
|My pretty hat made during bridal shower #1 :)|
Getting to Buffalo is seeming like a fiasco. Here are all the things that need to fit into my car (a little Honda Civic):
-groomsmen gifts (2 huge boxes)
-large box from Oriental Trading with miscellaneous wedding stuff
-3 medium to large boxes of kitchen goodies for my sister (as I get new stuff, she gets my well loved stuff)
-6 cases of wine for the hotel welcome baskets (there are no Trader Joe's in Buffalo, so I need to come prepared)
-6 dresses (I can never decide what to wear and I always have an extra dress on hand, lol)
-Miscellaneous bags with wedding planning binder, knitting supplies, toiletries, snacks, wedding shoes, etc)
-My suitcase (currently in the front seat)
-Canopy for my future sister-in-law's grad party (This will be swapped out halfway through my trip for my future mother-in-law and her weekend supplies- hope she doesn't have too many....lol)
I'm thinking my car is somewhat of a clown car- I never thought it would all fit, but it does, miraculously!
Another point of stress is my wedding dress- my beautiful, amazing, dream wedding dress. My first fitting is Saturday. Only problem, no dress. The dress ships today and won't arrive until late next week. I am trying to be calm, but I also really want to see my dress and get the alterations started. I am down 25 pounds, so I know the dress needs to be altered, and I want it to be as amazing on me as when I tried on the sample. The store says not to worry- they will make the dress perfect between my second (now first) fitting and the wedding- 1/5 weeks apart. And I believe them, kind of, but I'm still freaking out.
I know, I need to take a chill pill, but my Type A personality is not suited for wedding planning....lol. Well, I think it will be an awesome party, but it's all the little details that drive me crazy!
So over my lunch hour, I am going to get a pedicure to see if I can clear my mind of the never ending wedding list. Wish me luck!! Any suggestions to help me out?
