With the wedding happening a month tomorrow, I’m doing my best to not freak out or lose myself in the details. One of my biggest goals with this wedding (other than, well, marrying my favourite guy) was for it to be as stress free as possible and I think we’ve managed it for the most part. Most of the people we’re working with have commented about how easy-going we are and how much they’re looking forward to the wedding as we just want to have fun. That being said, with the clock ticking away planning has become almost a full time job for me and I am really having to pull out my relaxation toolbox to keep my head on my shoulders. This means a lot more downtime for me. I am a naturally introverted person so having to constantly talk to or be around people drains my energy and with having to call, coordinate, have meetings with, delegate, etc. for this wedding I have started to decline a few invitations these days in favour of a quiet night in with my Kindle.

In the end, however, there’s actually not that much left to do! I have it all written out and am checking things off day by day and, in the end, regardless of what happens, I’m going to be married! Everything else is just frosting on my cupcake!
