Wedding Planning: It Drains the Brain

Do you remember when you were in school and it came down to the night before a big paper was due and were you just barely cracking a book, trying to squeeze a little bit of brain juice out, but all you were getting was some dust and a few tumbleweeds?

Me too.

There have been a million things going on every day and trying to recount the tales is proving to be too much for this tumbleweed.

To give you an idea, I'm getting married soon. Very soon. There have been lots of appointments, and errands, and phone calls, and emails, and lists, and photo shoots (my life is so hard). Some of them more notable than others.

  • I bought a cute fabric accessory to go with my wedding dress (which I can't describe because Eric sometimes reads my blog) and tried to give it a slightly aged effect by tinting it with tea. It turned out brown.

  • I had some alterations done to my dress and they turned out crazy. So one night, when I was home alone, I started "fixing" things myself. 

Fixed it.

  • I bought my wedding shoes because they were A) designer, and B) super cheap. They may, or may not, have been such a steal because they're two slightly different shades of the same color. Whatever. I CAN'T PASS UP A GOOD DEAL, OKAY.

  • I had a hair trial that ended up looking like My Little Pony took a cotton candy turd on my head.

  • I had a makeup trial that looked like Jocelyn Wildenstein, Angelyne, and Hellen Keller got together and had a fight on my face.

And despite all of these trials (and errors) I'm totally not even losing my mind. Instead, I'm just super fucking stoked to be marrying my best friend. I don't care how the day's events pan out, even if I look like a tornado of over-priced insanity, I can't wait to walk down that aisle.

Trust me, it will all come together in the end and all of the aggravation will be worth it.

Congratulations once again on becoming a Mrs.

Awww that sucks! It will work out though.

I didn't get to have a trial makeup run and ended up crying and wiping off half my makeup the day of the wedding. It worked out just fine :)

But p.s. don't try to fix your wedding dress anymore!!!

Oh I am laughing!

When my daughter got married we all went in for hair and makeup trials. I looked like Tammy Fay Baker. Google her if you're too much a young un. That's what I looked like.

My daughter looked fantastic though! Makeup is so weird.

You will be gorgeous. Just because you are gorgeous.
