Randomness of a Bride about to become a Mrs.

As we are approaching Mr. Knight and I’s Wedding, things are getting quite hectic. I apologize in advance if I don’t blog much this week or next. We are 1 week out and I’m freaking!!!!

Umm… Hello super scary countdown on our blog that is FREAKING ME OUT. I can no longer visit our blog, because it freaks me out too much. Not freak me out in a way that I don’t want to get married, but freak me out in a way that I can’t believe the time is almost here. 8 years of dating and here we are, 8 days from our Wedding day. CRAZY. but… crazy happy, for sure. :-)

I can’t believe this little 6 hour party we have been planning for 2 years and 3 months is finally 1 week away. Mr. Knight and I have been checking off our to-do list, packing for the honeymoon, and preparing for next weekend’s festivities.

I walk around the house like a chicken with my head cut off most of the time. I’ll walk one direction, then remember something I need to do/pack/pick up something, and start walking another direction to go do it. I’ve actually lost about 3-5 pounds putting me around the 127-128lb mark. Um.. yeah, the last time I weighed in the 120s was late middle school, early high school. And yes, I just revealed my weight to the whole wide world. Isn’t that a cardinal sin for women, or what?

Mr. Knight has been trying to fatten me up, by taking me to Chick-fil-A (our photographer’s FAV) and making spagetti for dinner. He’s so funny. Fatten me up? I actually enjoy getting on the scale and seeing my weight. I think the change that I made to drop those few pounds was drinking mostly water. I’ve been on a water diet for a few weeks now. Water Water Water. I drink TONS of it. So there. That is my little secret weapon.

Will I forget to write the infamous ‘day of the Wedding’ blog post, that so many bride’s write? Probably. My mind is so scatterbrained right now. I have crazy lists of things to-do all over my desk. But, I will do my best to be a good little blogger bride. :-)

This is a T-shirt I should probably be wearing this week. For sure.

Mr. Knight and I have finished up the rest of our Dance practices and lesson. We videotaped our progress on the way, so look out for some funny videos of us practicing in the next few months. Hopefully we don’t mess it up on our Wedding day… keeping our fingers crossed!

Okay, this is where I need y’alls advice, and Bride expertise… how did y’all relax before your Wedding day? How did you get rid of the nervous jitters, and the “I think I’m going to throw up because so many people are looking at me” fears?

    Why ask these people? I’ve already done it… When ever you think about it, just take a deep breath and realize that it’s your day and there’s nothing you can possibly do to make it bad. There’s nothing to worry about. It will either be an epic win or epic fail, but, regardless, it will be epic—that’s got to count for something.

    We’re getting married and that’s all that really matters. All the other stuff is just to entice everyone to witness it, right? Haha.

    Take a deep breath and chill.

    I Love you darling.

    Our Wedding will not be an Epic Fail! Lame-o!!!

    As long as I’ve got you, it is an Epic Win for me. :-)

    Here’s my advice: something will go wrong. Maybe multiple things will go wrong, but chances are, you will be the only one who notices, so just go with it. At the end of the day, it’s not about the wedding, it’s about the marriage. Remember to stop and look around once in a while. Wander off by yourself for a minute and look around the ceremony/reception site and take it all in. It goes by soooooo fast.

    And I don’t know if you guys are planning on seeing each other before walking down the aisle, but that really helped my nerves. I was so nervous for him to see me and my dress, but once that was over, I was really relaxed about walking down the aisle and having all the attention on me because I knew the most important person had already seen me.

    Good luck! Have fun! I’m sure it will be amazing.

    Your uncle Danny (God rest his soul) did ALL the planning for our reception. I was trying to wrap up a job so we could move right after we married. I remember being a bit..unnerved. Talk about having to turn something over. Somehow I did though and it worked out FINE. So we toasted with big red party cups because he forgot to buy the little plastic champagne glasses…That actually is an endearing memory now. RELAX.

    It will be very comfortable and you won’t be nervous because you will have your family and friends there with you.
