A week from today I make an honest man of Nick in front of the people we love most in this world.
I can't wait!
Nick bought a new tuxedo shirt, and he looks beautiful in it. He got his tux back from the cleaners, and it is a beautiful, conservative black. I believe we are breaking out the shiny gold jacket during the dancing. Once we have gotten people good and liquored up.
My dress is ready and hanging all covered at my parents' house. And the crinoline, to make sure it's super sticky-outy is hanging sideways like a bit O in their basement.
The magic makeup artist confirmed her availability. My MAC #7 false eyelashes are at the ready.
Oh, and the cake details are all set. I'd asked, months ago, if I could possibly have fuchsia water lilies. Because I thought it would be fun. She said certainly.
I emailed the other day and asked if I could have lily pads. And white flowers tinged in fuchsia, or with fuchsia centers. To tone it down.
She wrote back with the following. "Yes on the lily pads. YES on toning down the fuchsia."
Heh heh. She's amazing, and so I know it will be pretty. It, like the bridesmaid dresses, is going to be a surprise. I like it that way.
My high school friend Sophie, who I recently learned reads LG, sent me the most amazing list of emergency supplies to have on hand. Things I'd never have thought of. But are such a good idea. I'm amassing those this weekend.
And, in case you're wondering, I've sworn to Betty that this supply bag will not include a tiny spray bottle filled with pee.
We are figuring out some details, and I'm finishing up working on gifts.
And other than that, I think we're set, right?
