Now, this doesn’t mean I’m not running around with 52 million things on my to-do list. (Actually, the list is coming along quite nicely.) Plus there are all the little things that weren’t on the original list–things I need to pick up for the honeymoon, baby-sitting jobs that I couldn’t pass up, and a job interview. (That’s all I’m saying about the interview. I refuse to jinx myself.)
It seems fitting at this point in the game to look back at my first blog entry. (Being the adoring, dedicated readers that you are, I’m sure you didn’t even have to click back on that link, as you have it completely memorized from all the re-reading you’ve done over the past three months.) Even amidst all this craziness that comes with having less than five days (FIVE DAYS!) left until the wedding, I am still trying to keep my focus on the most important part of the day–my relationship with B.
A few weeks ago, when we were looking over the schedule of the wedding day, we decided to forego the tradition of not seeing each other until the Big Moment when I walk towards him down the aisle. After talking with some friends who recently got married, we decided to do what I believe they call a Private Reveal instead. How it’ll work is that about 1.5 hours before the wedding, B will stand, in his tux, at the altar, and on the count of three (okay, I don’t know if anyone’s actually going to count), we’ll turn around and he’ll see me walking down the aisle toward him. Then, we get to take about half an hour to just talk and be excited together about our big day. This will be the only time we get to spend alone all day, and in making this decision, I realized it was important in keeping the focus in the right place that day.
Until that half hour, we’ll be rushing to and fro amongst our vendors, packing for Hawaii, and trying to squeeze in as much family time as possible. (Well, okay, and after that half hour too!)
