Wedding Week!

Yup its wedding week... nope not mine of course but my best friends... They tie the knot on Saturday, and we have been so busy with wedding events and fittings and such all week. We had dress fittings and a bridal party bbq on Tuesday, rehearsal tomorrow (Thursday), bridesmaids "old school sleep over" complete with a game of DREAM PHONE on Friday, and then hair and makeup starts at 8 am on Saturday then all the festivities of the day! Plus I have been writing speeches all week too! I as the MOH am toasting the bride of course and they have asked Robyn to toast the bridesmaids as he is the only groomsman who knows all of us girls...

I am trying to rest up as much as possible early in the week so that I will be able to make it through the day on Saturday... 

I am having such an emotional week with the wedding and the preggo hormones all at once... I am so excited to see my friend walk down the isle in the beautiful dress that fits her like a glove, I can't wait to give my speech, I can't wait to hear the other speeches because I know that the people giving them are going to make them great! I am so excited to see Robyn in a TUX again, he never dresses up so it will be nice to see, I can't wait to see Delaney in her dress with her hair done, she is so excited to go to the salon, just like the girls on Strawberry Shortcake. But at the same time, part of me wishes I wasn't ready to pop right now. I feel so huge, and uncomfortable and wish there was more that I could do. I dread the thought that I will likely have to leave early due to flat out exhaustion, I wish that I could go and dance all night with the happy couple and all of our friends, I wish that I could even properly take part in the toasts... I will be drinking Apple Juice on ice. I hope its a good year...

One thing I do know is that all this wedding talk and all the wedding events are reminding me of  the day and week that Robyn and I got married. We are coming up on our first anniversary and so much has happened in just one year. However I do have one small concern... What to give dear hubby for our first anniversary... I know that tradition says it should be a gift of paper but I'm not sure quite what to do? I want to make it myself (surprise, surprise...) Any ideas are certainly welcome!

  1. My daugther was married on July 16 and the week leading up to the wedding was all consuming. It's was like I couldn't think about anything else! Hopefully you didn't get too pooped out by being pregnant. :-)

    I'm sure the wedding was beauitful (and Delaney looked super cute in the picture you posted)!
