We have…

Yep. One week left until the wedding. You know what that means? I am flipping the heck out. I’m a “omg don’t mess with me or I’ll cry” stressed-out ball of mess. But that comes and goes in waves, because there’s also the “OMG WE ARE GETTING MARRIED” breaking through. I have an incredible amount of things to do, but whatever happens happens. I’m working noon to night on wedding projects, and having a strange amount of fun doing that. Hey, what can I say, I’m an art kid, love deadlines, but also love working myself to the bone and UP TO THE LAST SECOND.

How do I do it? With a little help from Freddie, of course.

I play on “Don’t Stop Me Now” at full blast, do awesome karate-chop dancing, hop around a lot, make ugly dance face, and let it all out.

Tonight I’m gonna have myself a real good time
I feel alive and the world it’s turning inside out Yeah!
I’m floating around in ecstasy
So don’t stop me now don’t stop me
‘Cause I’m having a good time having a good time

I’m a shooting star leaping through the skies
Like a tiger defying the laws of gravity
I’m a racing car passing by like Lady Godiva
I’m gonna go go go
There’s no stopping me

I’m burning through the skies Yeah!
Two hundred degrees
That’s why they call me Mister Fahrenheit
I’m trav’ling at the speed of light
I wanna make a supersonic man of you

Don’t stop me now I’m having such a good time
I’m having a ball don’t stop me now
If you wanna have a good time just give me a call
Don’t stop me now (‘Cause I’m having a good time)
Don’t stop me now (Yes I’m having a good time)
I don’t want to stop at all

So, to my fellow stressed-out “IT’S ALMOST HERE!” brides, remember the words of Freddie. We’re having such a good time, remember? Unstoppable! So cut, print, glue, assemble, herd the cats, and try to enjoy it all. There’s no stopping you.

Oh, and if you want to have a good time, give me a call… but I promise I’d put you to work. But for now, I’m off to flashdance to Freddie and cover things in shellac.

Fellow almost-there brides, how are you holding up? Everybody that’s already gone through that “last week,” how did you keep it all under wraps?

    Ohhh I don’t envy you one bit. You will get through it, but you will cry. You HAVE to cry and just let it out. Because if you don’t you will be very sorry come W day. Trust me. Also, there will come a point where you honestly have to let things go. There was a bit of a snafu the Thursday before my wedding regarding the hotel bags. After that was cleared up I knew I just had to forget it and from then on just let things go. I hope you have some one to run your rehearsal (DOC, officiant, ANYONE but you) because that is the best time to literally hand the reins over to some one else and let them stress for you.

    Oh, one tip to tell your bridal party: SMILE. Smile all damn day. Especially smile when walking down that aisle. All of my processional pics are of basically frowning bridesmaids and groomsmen. So learn from my mistake, tell them to smile. (Can you tell I’m not over this quite yet and it’s been 3 weeks already?)

    Ha, this is a novel. Good luck, gal! You’ll be just fine this week 🙂
