Let the wedding festivities begin! We are officially on our way to Nashville. It’s so crazy to think it’s finally here. We’ve been engaged now for about a year and nine months and at some points it felt like this time would never come. All of the sudden it is underway!
We have a busy weekend full of activities and we are so excited for it all. It is going to be wonderful to have so many people we love together celebrating. We have been scrambling around the last few days tying up loose ends and of course baking. I’m pretty shocked by how much was accomplished in the last few weeks and days. I have had so many amazing helpers contributing which has made the process much less stressful.
Tonight Doug and I are taking our parents out for a nice dinner as a thank you gift for not only raising us for the last 20+ years, but also to acknowledge all of their help and support through the wedding planning process. It will be nice for us all to relax and enjoy a nice dinner and some adult beverages together before the craziness of the weekend really kicks in. Friday my mom and I are meeting my Aunt Sue and Uncle Frank, who are our lovely coordinators, to do a walk through at Belle Meade to make sure everything is set up perfectly on Sunday. Friday night we are going to have a night out downtown with any and all wedding guests who are available and wanting to come join us. Saturday afternoon is our rehearsal and rehearsal brunch, then I plan on relaxing and getting a good nights sleep before Sunday. Sunday starts early for us girls with hair and makeup beginning at 9 then the day is jam packed from there. If you haven’t checked the weather for this weekend, you should, we really had someone looking out for us on this one! It is going to be a beautiful sunny weekend (sigh of relief!) and I am so looking forward to each second! I am trying to remind myself to really stop and take in every moment! I can’t wait to share it all with you!
Cheers to a weekend full of family, friends and lots of love!
