The Rehearsal (and a Ramble)

We had our wedding rehearsal this afternoon.

It went by in a complete blur.

I can’t remember much the vicar said.

I can’t remember what I’m supposed to be doing.

I can’t remember whose hand I’m supposed to be holding when.

All I can remember is looking into Nick’s eyes and thinking, “Wow! I’m actually going to be marrying the man I love in three days! That’s pretty huge!” 

I found myself getting quite emotional. As did Nick. 

It was such an intimate moment; it feels so strange to be sharing that with a room full of people!

The last few days have been very busy.

A whirlwind of running around.

Last minute purchases.

A lot of time with my glue gun, and probably not enough time with Nick!

People keep telling me to enjoy this time, but I’m not sure how to – especially with a toddler in tow! It’s very difficult to take a step back from it all when we’re so tired, and appreciate that in three days we’ll be married and we won’t have to go through the stress of organising a wedding again.

I now understand why people have children after getting married! Time is certainly not of the essence with an attention-hungry little person around.

I think we’re pretty much on track though; our Order of Services are almost all printed, so they just require folding… The table plans are done! I’ve decided that my attitude towards the table plans is: if people don’t like where they’re sitting they can suck it up and deal with it for three hours max – they’re getting jolly tasty food in return… and quite frankly, they’re lucky to be invited!

I spent a few hours this afternoon with my glue gun, a ball of twine and many jam jars… and we’re off somewhere exciting tomorrow to find contents for said jars.

It’s all coming together. I feel… not relaxed, but at ease(ish). I’ll be able to relax once the hall has been set up on Friday evening and everything has been delivered!

Gin anyone?

    Ooo, exciting!! I know what you mean about time not being your own when you have a toddler. You can’t lose yourself in a task because they always need you. I hope the next three days pass in a whirl of joy though and you managed to take a few deep breaths in between the countless tasks. I’ll be thinking about you xx

    Oh the last few days are so stressful! So worth it though! x
