Exactly One Week From Today

Exactly one week from today, I will be getting up around 7 am so that I can be ready to start my hair and make up at 8 am.

Exactly one week from today, I will be watching my family and bridesmaids getting themselves ready for our wedding.

Exactly one week from today, I will be heading to the church.

Exactly one week from today, I will be stepping into my dress and getting ready to take pictures with all of my girls.

Exactly one week from today, I will be walking down the aisle toward my Groom.

Exactly one week from today, I will be saying "I Do"

Exactly one week from today, we will be partying it up with our guests.

Exactly one week from today, I will officially be a Wife.

It is weird typing the word "Wife". It is still really hard for me to wrap my head around the fact that we only have a week until the wedding. One week. Seven days. It is just crazy!!!!

With just a week to go, I thought I would give an update on how our list of to-do's is doing.

  • Ceremony Programs(Waiting on our Ceremony Music and then we will get started on these)
  • Wishing Tree Sign(Just need to print it on the paper and put it in a frame)
  • Final touches on Favor Boxes
  • Affixing signs to candy jars
  • Buy all the candy(We only need to find two more types)
  • Table #'s (These are designed, we just need to pick pictures out for them and print them)
  • Get a hold of the last 6 or 7 that haven't RSVP'd
  • Seating chart
  • Place cards(Aran's Mom has the list and will be working on these this week)
  • Ceremony music(Just waiting on our musicians to finalize this)
  • Make my garter(I tried making it, but I don't really like it, so this may go out the window)
  • Finish Gift for Flower Girls(Almost done with this, but I need an iron. Who doesn't have an iron? Oh yeah, us,haha!)
  • Buy gift for Ring Bearer
  • Buy Groomsmen Gifts(Going today to do this)
  • Get my Brother and Step Dad to get fitted(I may have to drag them there, but it will be done this week)
  • Final Count to Caterers(Emailing them on Monday with the final count)
  • Final Count to Florist for Corsages, Bouquets, Boutonniere's, and Table Arrangements
  • Get our Marriage License(We are doing this at the end of this week)
  • Get all of our final paperwork to the church by this weekend
  • Take my rings in to get put together and cleaned
  • Final meeting with DJ's(This was supposed to happen last week, but we have had to reschedule twice, oops!)
  • Need to get ribbon to our cake person
  • Cut down the sleeves on the flower girl dresses(they are way too long, good thing they are made of tulle)
  • Pick up dress the week of the wedding
  • Pick up Veronica from the Airport(Can't do this til Thursday! Hurry up Thursday!)
  • And lastly, find some time to relax and breathe(I went and had a massage today, more on that later!)

  • Our list is definitely getting shorter. I am hoping to have most of this done by the end of this weekend, especially with us having Monday off.
