Up, Up, and Away

This is it.  6 days to go.  I can't believe the wedding is almost here.  On one hand it feels like time has flown by and it was just yesterday that we got engaged, on the other hand this feels like it has been a really long time coming.  You'd think after having been together for 10 years we would have known exactly what we wanted for every aspect of the wedding, nope.  I was never the little girl who planned her dream wedding while she grew, I am however the girl who has planned my marriage.  I am glad that Mitchell and I have waited as long as we have because I know for sure that we have what it takes to make it.  We will be Carl and Ellie sitting in our mismatched chairs growing old together no matter what (go watch UP if you didn't get that).

I am determined that we will not become a statistic, not that there is anything wrong with divorce, for some people it is the right path.  I, however, am stubborn and usually get what I want.  And I want my happily every after (good times and bad).  I want the every day life with Mitchell that we have always had but still managing to grow and change together.

I can't wait til Saturday, not because of the party, but because it means that we get to start the next phase of our lives together.

Only 12 Days to Go!

This is it, less than 2 weeks to go. We've been working on our seating arrangement, worst part of planning! We're also on wedding "diet" and exercise plan, also not my favorite part.

However as the wedding gets closer we've abandoned certain aspects of the planning/wedding, they seem unimportant compared to other things. I've been working on my vows which is nerve racking! Mitchell finished his ages ago, not a procrastinator that one.

See everyone soon!

I Can See The Finish Line

This is it, less than a month to go. Everything is in place, we're just tying up loose ends and putting together the final details.

I am finishing up our cake toppers, which of course I put off until the last minute, but so far I think they look pretty good.

I've had my final dress fitting, the dress is awesome. I'm in the process of shopping for hair adornments, specifically a comb or clip for after the veil comes off. If you know anywhere I should look please let me know.

Other than that we just need to write our vows and learn to dance, but it may be too late for that.
