Ladies! I'm leaving in less than 1 week, 6 days to be exact! I can't believe how fast time is flying! For some reason it's still not clicking with me, I'm unable to believe that this is really happening. Sorry I've been so sparse with the updates, but I've been super busy. Work has really picked up and some major changes are happening so it's been all hand on deck at work trying to figure everything out. It also doesn't help that a few other assistants have quit so the extra work has fallen on everyone else.
I've seen a lot of brides work up until they leave and I honestly don't know how they do it. I'm so exhausted by the time I get home and do my regular daily chores I barely have time to do any planning. I'm leaving next Saturday and my last day at work is Tuesday, so I'm hoping that having 3 days off before we leave is enough time for me to get everything together. Also, every time I come back from vacation I get sick so I took an additional two days off to recover and spend some time with my soon to be hubby.
I feel accomplished this week as I was able to: write my speeches, write my vows, finish my playlist and put it on my iPod, make a list of questions to ask the wedding coordinator, hand out the last of my favours, give out all of the bridesmaids/groomsman gifts, and pick up last minute items.
I ended up buying a travel steamer to bring with me. Did any past brides find it helpful? I think I paid around $30 for it from Walmart.
I was going through my planning thread earlier and realized that I totally forgot to put up my website. My fiance is in IT and having a website was really important to us, so we used WIX to create our website. It's really user friendly. I know almost nothing about computers and I found it really easy to use when I had to do updates and everything. It did cost us quite a bit for a 2 year subscription (I believe it was around $100). I don't think anyone really visited our website, so if I were to do it all over again I might skip the website and maybe create a page using social media or even send a newsletter to everyone.
Thank you so much for your kind comments about my decor. I am planning on also having some flowers just to spice up my space a bit and really hammer in the point that a wedding will take place. I will definitely update before I leave.
Anyways ladies I am off to start packing!
