I was in the same boat.. I live a good 5hr drive away from my family and friends and my FI was away with the military for 9 weeks before now and I did everything for our wedding on my own. To be honest, the best way I think.. Everything was done MY WAY, no one had a say in anything and it kept me busy and organized.
I'm leaving work now for the week and getting in the car for our 5 hour drive down to Halifax which is where we're flying from . I can't wait!
I'm still not packed.. need to run home and throw some stuff in a suitcase~! lol this is the way I always pack lol I'm an old pro by now!
I'm starting to get nervous that i'm going to forget soemthing.. why didn't I make lists!!! I woke up at 5am this morning and woke up my FI to tell him I didn't like the shirt we bought for the wedding.. he was like "oh great, thanks ERIN!!" now I'm gonna run out and see if the one I love is avail in his size.. (it wasn't when we 1st looked) man way to add stress to the mix eh!!
Anyways have a great week ladies, I'll be thinking of you when I'm in Jamaica!!
Tris - don't forget to come introduce yourself. My ceremony is 4:30pm on the 26th (Tuesday)

If I forgot to mention any other soon to be brides, please forgive me! but I hope you have the weddings of your dreams!!!!!
We leave for Jamaica in 3 months... I'm starting to worry that I need to have stuff done that I haven't thought of! Agh!! Plus my fiance (who is a grad student) is now 5 hrs north, at the tip of Michigan, for his research season until the wedding so it's just me trying to get everything finished (we live several states away from family so my stress level is getting even higher knowing that I have so much to get done on my own!) For recent and upcoming brides...any last minute things I should be making sure I have done? I sent in a copy of our birth certs and passports... I hope that is all we needed and we will bring the originals with us.
