Real Life Bride

September 14, 2011

I’m a little out of sorts this week. It’s my last full week before the wedding and I feel like I have nothing, yet millions of things to do. On my master to do list for this week:

  1. Juice Cleanse
  2. Get newly chipped front tooth repaired & whiten teeth
  3. Final facial appointment
  4. Frame grandparent’s photos for reception décor
  5. Get parent’s gifts
  6. Make CD’s for Shuttle Busses
  7. Finish Vows
  8. Finalize Seating Chart

Yes, the dreaded seating chart is finally complete! If you are a couple getting married and manage to make it through the seating chart without one fight . . . well, actually I can’t decide if that’s a good or a bad thing. The fight happens because you both care about the wedding so that’s a good sign. With that said, just like deciding upon the guest list, the seating chart ranks as #1 nightmarish things we hated doing.

Speaking of nightmares, mine have gotten worse this week. Last night I fell asleep watching Friends reruns on Nick & Nite. There was an episode where Ross is in London marrying Emily but he accidentally says “Rachel” name instead.  (Watch it here.) I suppose I was asking for a nightmare after watching that. Perhaps I should stick with Father Of The Bride reruns from here on out.  We had our final pre-therapy session with Dr. T last week so it looks like I’m going to have to sort this one out the good old fashioned way: Wine and Pizza


So here we are, just under two weeks away and I realized I haven’t take the time to give a shout out to all of our vendors that are going to make our day unforgettable. It’s pimp out your vendors time:
