Well I never. I’m getting married… TOMORROW. The last week has been pretty full on, with an even more hectic day ahead of me today, but here I am, my sleeping fiancé beside me, tip-tapping away on a miserable Friday morning to send you a very brief, but very necessary final update.
So how am I feeling? Excited? In spurts… as the festoon lighting started to go up yesterday and the barn came to life I may have jumped up and down and clapped my hands like a little girl. Calm? Yes, but my heart is definitely beating faster than it usually does. I feel like the slightest thing could tip me over the edge… Nervous? Only when I think about that bit before I walk down the aisle. But you know the strongest feeling I’m experiencing at the moment? And I don’t think it’s what you’re expecting… Indifference. Yes, tomorrow is the day that the last 17 months have been almost entirely dedicated to…and I’m a bit non-plus.
If I’m completely honest, I am disappointed by the weather. Despite booking a spring wedding because you can’t rely on the weather and therefore I won’t be disappointed… I didn’t expect to be booking a last-minute heater for the barn because it is EFFING FREEZING. Today we make the decision whether to put up a marquee or not in case it’s pissing it down when people need to leave the barn for it to be turned around. With March temperatures and a cloudy forecast, it’s not going to be quite the day I imagined…
…HOWEVER. That barn is going to be looking bloody beautiful. We have delicious food being served during the day and later in the evening, a brilliant band that will knock people’s socks off, enough alcohol to water an army, I get to spend the day wearing the most exquisite dress I have ever laid eyes on, and we will be surrounded- for the first and only time- by ALL of our favourite people. Oh my, it’s gonna be epic, bad weather or not!
Oh yeah, and at the end of it all I’m going to be married to the person who makes my world go round.
Uttersons, it has been a pleasure. THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart for being with me through this journey. For reading my ramblings, responding to my musings and sharing the blog with your friends. You have made the last 17 months that extra bit special and I can’t wait to share the images and details with you once it’s all over!
I’ll see you on the other side.
