OK, I fell victim to “bride brain,” as so many beautiful ladies before me have called it. I suggest you grab a glass of wine or a cocktail and buckle up for this one; this is one heck of a ride. I woke up in a cold sweat one morning because I realized we were about to get married and we didn’t have bridesmaids’ dresses yet and I didn’t have my dress. Oh the humanity! This dream clearly occurred before my dress-shopping trip. We’ll touch on that just a little later; however, there is a very different reason for this posting. I should have known after this nightmare what was going to happen.
I truly have experienced my first wedding-related problem. The morning after I had my literal nightmare I received a message on Facebook from my mother saying that I needed to call my grandmother. Um, that doesn’t sound very good. So naturally I started panicking thinking my grandma was ill or in the hospital. I may have overreacted, because when I got to the next line it said there was some national event going on during the weekend of the wedding, and Aunt T says hotels are booking up.
HOLD UP!?? SHUT THE FRONT DOOR, SAY WHAT?!!

I died. Ladies/gents, I seriously died. I panicked. I received this message in September, 10 months before our wedding, and there were hotels being booked up? Eau Claire is NOT that large. How could this happen?! I picked our wedding date first, and as far as I had known NOTHING major was happening on that weekend. Oh silly me.
