With less then five months until the wedding, almost everyone I speak to about the wedding inevitably asks, “Are you so excited for the wedding?”
Well, to be honest, not yet. I mean, there are moments where I just can’t wait for it to get here, but, for the most part, I’m too worried about finding those table number holders, finishing the design of our invites (or, truthfully, starting them), getting the jiggles on my body to tighten up, finding that second dress, worrying over the little details that most people won’t even notice, etc.
And, to top it all off, when I think of the wedding, my first, true thought is, “Holy crap, how am I going to walk down that LONG aisle in front of all of those people?” Followed by, “Holy crap, I hope I have time for a glass of champagne (or two) before I have to dance in front of all of those people!”
Don’t get me wrong, with all of the hard work that has gone into planning, I’m so excited to see how everything turns out. Most importantly, I’m so excited for the wedding to be over, for Mr. H and I to be man and wife, and to finally be our own little family, same last names at all.
I just hate to disappoint people when I answer, “Well, not really yet. I’m ready for it to be over.” They give me this look of horror, like, how dare I say something like that about my wedding? I’m just being honest.
But try me after my bridal portraits next week, when I’ve been made-up, worn the dress and veil, and carried a bouquet around. Then, just then, the excitement might really hit me.
Were you all excited from day one? Did it come and go as planning commenced?
