Closer and Closer

Wedding planning... oh JOY! I'm at the point where I can finally take a breather and just enjoy the time right now. I have been a bad friend... not returning phone calls, not answering emails. I get stressed out and crabby about wedding invitations and silly wedding to-dos. Tomorrow is my last day of work for 5 glorious weeks! I need these days off. I come home from work and there is always something going on at night! ALWAYS! T and I made a pact to not add so much to the month of July. To just enjoy the last month as a "dating" couple before we are a "married" couple. T has to work on selling his house, I need to work on my house getting ready for out of town guests and a rehearsal dinner in my backyard. So if we are absent in July... it's just because we decided we need some us time. On a great note, our pre-marriage counselor says we make a great couple. I mean we already new that, but it's nice to hear it from a professional. :)

The invitations are in the mail!!!! There is no turning back now... 225 invites arriving in mailboxes from Minnesota to Michigan to Texas to Massachusetts to Florida to Canada to Germany to Australia! OOOFTA! I am pleased as punch on how they turned out... despite the fact that I broke every etiquette rule on the addressing the envelopes. Ask me if I care?
I am realizing more and more that when it comes to a wedding, that it's okay to break a few rules. It's a special day about two people who love and care about each other deeply and those that love and care about them. So who cares if I used labels instead of hand writing each envelope!

So 45 days until the big day! I have my dress, my shoes and my big pink flower I will be rockin' in my hair.

Wedding Shoes!

Love the shoes, love the attitude, and love the invitations. I gave Emily the address of your blog. I'm hoping she will take a gander at your prep and realize it's all about simple elegance with a punch of fun, just as you are doing. Enjoy your July. ~ Laurie
