We have less than 3 weeks before I walk down the aisle to be joined to the love of my life. Yesterday, we had the meeting with our venue to set in stone the minute details of the ceremony and reception.
We have a
floor plan, we have food choices, table set up, and timelines down. It
was rather comical. Three of us sitting at the table are OCD. I can't
handle odd numbers. My fiance and I both needed a uniform color scheme.
Meaning each table had to be exactly the same. He insisted our table
needed 2 centerpieces. And my mother-in-law needed the tables to be set
up in a particular pattern. My venue planner was extremely understanding
and patient with us. For this OCD woman, it's a gust of fresh air after
holding my breath for too long. I don't have to worry about what will
happen or when. I just have to finish preparing the guest favors,
flowers and find some shoes.
I would not have made it to this point
without the help of my mother and father, my mother-in-law, my
sister-in-law, my grandmother-in-law, and a couple of my dearest
friends. The love and support from them, the contributions... It has all
been overwhelming. I could never thank them enough! Of course I also
appreciate all the well wishes and encouragement I have had from
My sister-in-law and mother-in-law threw an amazing
bridal/bachelorette party. There were fun games and some awesome gifts.
Especially the one from my fiances grandmother. She truly put thought
and effort into it by making the opening a game. I made way too many cookies. Including these Strawberry and White Chocolate ones.
It was a great night.
We shared stories about life experiences. It was a much needed chance to unwind a little and let loose. To shake off the worries that have been crowding my mind this week.
