The Final Countdown!!

"Let there be spaces in your togetherness."
- Kahlil Gibran

I think about this quote that is often used at weddings and I giggle. Yesterday I needed so much 'space in our togetherness' that I went shopping - alone! Wedding prep. has gone into maximum overdrive. There has only been one real 'Bridezilla' moment, but I stand by it. Other than that, the only sign that things are a bit stressful is a small twitch in the corner of my left eye that won't go away.

I feel like I am boring you with all of the details, but blogging is about our lives and this is certainly my life right now. It's strange to be the centre of attention so much. My brother keeps saying, "Suck it up and enjoy it for the week!" So I am trying to let go and enjoy people making a fuss. I am weirded out by some things, like the train on my dress and the whole head table looking like an interview panel thing. (I've kept the train and nixed the interview panel!) But on the whole I am looking forward to The Weekend with a healthy mix of excitement and nerves.

I've been cosmically ordering a warm, sunny day, and all of the elderly people in my grandmother's building are praying for sun for us, so we're good for weather! The leaves are changing colour rapidly, the menu is set, the first song is chosen, the cake has been tasted, the dress has been fit, the tuxes (complete with top hats, canes & white gloves - HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA) are arriving, the yellow school bus is booked, the photographer has been to the site, the hotel is booked, the presents have started to arrive (VERY FUN!) and I think we are on track for the rest of the week! Now if I could just do something about the twitch in the corner of my eye...

I nixed the interview table as well. :-)

I agree with your brother to just savor it-this is the only time in your adult life that you will get fawned over just for being you (you get fawned over when pregnant, but people are more focused on your belly-from what I can tell with all my pregnant friends)

It's great to see an update. I've been thinking about you two. It sounds like it's going to be perfect.

That interview table thing always reminds me of the final dance audition in Flashdance.

Of course...I am a bit older than you so that may make no sense at all.

I can't wait to see pictures.

Enjoy it all

oh the excitement is palpable in your post! and it's fabulous! my wedding was a small affair, and even then i struggle to remember the details! all i know is that i was floating on happiness, and may you do so too (just hopefully with a better memory than me!)
spill as many details as you can, it is far from boring, and nothing is more contagious that the potent cocktail of love and joy!
here's to perfect weather! xx

i love hearing about all the little is juicy, and what is juicier than a wedding? wishing you a love-filled warm sunshiny day!

enchantedartist said... close! I am certain the sun will be shining on you on this beautiful day...twitch or no twitch...:)

Do you have time for a massage? That might help with the twitch! Either way, enjoy your wedding weekend. It will be lovely. I'll be thinking of you on the 4th. (I got married on October 7th seven years ago. I love October.)
