Details are a double-edged sword. On one hand, “attention to detail” is something to be admired. You have to hand it to a couple who goes the extra mile to make their bash sing from head to toe. On the other hand, “the devil is in the details,” and if you think long and hard about every little piece of the puzzle you’ll drive yourself up the wall.
I just used a dozen idioms in that opening paragraph and I’m not sure that I know what all of them mean.
Well lovely followers, we are back from our wonderful, fabulous, relaxing honeymoon! I can’t wait to share some photos and stories with you soon, but I wanted to back up just a step here and do my dress reveal! I know this post is kind of after the fact…I meant to set it to post the day after the wedding, but I just ran out of time! So, sorry for the delay but here it is for anyone who is still interested…
If you recall from before, I bought my dress from Marges Bridal House, the same place where my mother bought her wedding dress 35 years ago. It was definitely a dress fit for a queen (at least that’s how it made me feel). The designer is Davinci Bridal (although, I can’t remember the style number).
Well the time is here, my lovelies. I am sitting in my hotel room while my handsome groom is off spending some much needed time entertaining our guests. I am exhausted but totally excited all at the same time. The last 10 months have been a total whirlwind of emotions. Mr. Farmer and I have been planning this elaborate event for what seems like forever and now it’s here.
I can honestly say that this has been the time of my life. I have never been happier than I have been these last two days. Despite a few downfalls (death in the family, hotel mix-ups, rehearsal dinner snafus) nothing could bring me down from this amazing high that I have been on. I am so incredibly ready to marry the love of my life tomorrow in a front of all our family and friends. We are so blessed by all the people who have made the journey to Eau Claire to celebrate with us, and for that I am beyond grateful.
To all the amazing readers and fellow bees, I cannot thank you enough for all the encouraging words you have provided me throughout my entire journey, whether it be good or bad. Whenever I needed advice or support, you wonderful bees were there to lend an ear and offer advice. Specifically I want to thank Miss Milk Cow for allowing me to blow up her mailbox with insane freak-out moments. She was always there to give me a little advice, and as she is doing the same thing as I am doing today, I cannot help but think about her and thank her for offering some insightful advice.
I’ve been doing a lot of thinking about our bar lately (see here, here and here), but I don’t want anybody to get the wrong impression about our boozy bash. Today, I’m going to flip the script and talk about what we’re not going to drink at our wedding: champagne.
