Yep! The time is here. One month from today we’re getting married. It’s crunch time. The next month will be filled with a lot of little things to prepare for the big day. Next weekend we have our bachelorette/bachelor parties. Scott will be in Des Moines with his brothers and friends. I will be in Omaha with my girls. I can’t wait. It should be a fun weekend.
I’m also currently intensely working on making sure I eat healthy so I can fit into my wonderful dress. It’s perfect but I can’t gain any weight. Which isn’t easy. They say most brides lose weight before the wedding because of stress. Here’s the deal…I’m not most brides. HAHA. If there is one thing I’ve learned about myself (though my job) when I’m stressed I eat…horrible. I eat whatever is in front of me and give in to whatever I’m craving. It’s bad.
So I’m giving up carbs. Limiting them if I come into a situation where I can only eat what’s in front of me. I’ve been eating lean. Making salads and only eating protein. It’s no fun though. HAHA I like sweets, I love carbs. Giving those up sucks. But I think it will all be worth it.
As for Scott, he’s got the tuxes all lined up. The men are going to look amazing. 🙂 I am waiting for my shoes to arrive. I got my TOMS last week. LOVE THEM! Can’t wait to wear them and support a good cause.
For those who don’t know, TOMS brand is a charity. They have a ONE TO ONE program. When I purchase shoes, I am also purchasing a pair of shoes for a child in need. It’s a really great thing. Not only am I making a fashion statement but I am making a statement about poverty. Don’t get me wrong. It’s not like I we haven’t been blessed with the opportunity to throw a great party (and spend money on ridiculous things) but I thought purchasing TOMS would at least show that I care and recognize that there are people in the world who are in need. It’s a small thing. But I hope in encourages others to do the same. I thought about buying TOMS for all my bridesmaids. We’ll see. They sure are comfy.
See there I go, going off on some rant that’s not wedding related. HAHA Believe it or not it’s helpful for me to do that.
As far as all the other details regarding the wedding. We are getting RSVP’s in. WE put a QR code on our invites so it’s been fun to see people reply instantly. It’s helpful for us and for anyone with a smart phone. 🙂
We’re working on printing place cards and getting party favors. If I had all the money in the world we’d have a pretty sweet party favor but I think we’re going with pink Hershey bars. Should be fun!
I am also almost finished with out video. As you may know, Scott and I have made numerous videos during our relationship. We’ve captured moments and made little recap videos or music videos. So, naturally, we’re making on for our reception. First there are two videos of us as children. Photos and videos from our early years. Then we have a video of our entire relationship. It’s been so fun to put together. Though I think I need to shorten it because it’s a little long. 🙂 Maybe we’ll have two versions. 😉
This is my “one month till the wedding” blog. I’m sure there will be plenty more to talk about. I keep reminding myself that this all needs to be enjoyed. Once it’s over…we’ll be wishing we were still planning. Or maybe we’ll be thankful it’s over. Either way, the next month will be filled with great memories and a lot of gratitude. 🙂
