A Productive Weekend
With only a month and some change to go until the big day, I think I’m handling things pretty well. Jeremy and I are getting a lot done for the wedding, but it’s funny, we’ve both fallen back in love with The Beatles and have been spending a lot of out time watching Beatles shows and a lot of our online time looking at Beatles information. It’s funny how that works out, eh? I have my mind occupied with a band that formed almost 20 years before I was born. I guess that’s my mind’s way of coping with wedding stress, focus on something else!
That said, we did get a lot done this weekend. We mailed off final payments to our venue and our DOC, tweaked our vows a bit, and bought some gifts. We wanted to get frames for our parents, and ended up getting overpriced engraved frames at Things Remembered. The engraving costs more than the frames! Oh well. They’re nice quality frames and the girl at the store suggested a lovely inscription:
What we learned of love
We learned from you
Sweet, isn’t it? We put our names and wedding date on the bottom. I’m inserting a sheet in the frame letting them know we’ll also be purchasing them any 5×7 photo they want from our photographer.
We also got our best man a monogrammed Zippo that we think he’ll love, and I got my bridesmaids a few gifts, so that’s crossed off the list!
We were also quite naughty: it was time to get our rings cleaned (we have to have it done twice a year) and instead of just carting our wedding rings in the box like we normally do, we wore them! It took Jeremy some time to get used to the ring, but he was reluctant to take it off once it was time to put them away again. I can’t believe that it’ll only be a few more weeks until we’re wearing them permanently!
For those of you married ladies or those of you close to the big day: how did you handle stress in the weeks leading up to your wedding?
