What A Week Before Your Wedding Feels Like

My wedding is about a week away. I wanted to blog through it, but when you get married, all your free time is on wedding stuff or getting through normal day to day. Perhaps there are things we should’ve had done at this point… But either way, here I am.

People ask if I’m nervous, excited, ready, etc.

You know, I don’t know how I feel. I’ve had so many things to do, I feel like I have to get through those. I think about the whole experience and my fiancĂ© and I are kind of kicking ourselves for giving in to doing things we preferred not to. Now that we’re a week away I can tell we’re both stressed about it.

We just booked our honeymoon and the two of us are really looking forward to it. Sometimes we wish we could skip ahead, but we know the party will be fun.

Maybe I’m nervous about the time leading up to the event.

We spend our night alone. Then get up, get ready and then have time to get rid of just waiting. Then it starts and everyone cries. I don’t know why it weirds me out. I suppose it’s because I’m not the most emotional person. It takes a lot for me.

Really sometimes I wish the wedding was just us. But then people’s feelings get involved and something I do care about (a lot) are people’s feelings. That really matters. Because even though we are kicking ourselves for not just going to the justice of the peace, I think seeing my parents, his parents, etc. hurt in the long run would make me feel awful. It’s just 30 minutes. Probably less.

Crazy, all that money for 15-30 minutes.

That’s all weddings are. But someone reminded me you’re paying for memories.

Indeed you are. Here’s to expensive memories.
