So, we are coming down to the wire. 29 days and counting down. I can't believe that in a month Mr. Stilts and I will be taking our vows as husband and wife. I have gotten a lot done lately. This week Mr. Stilts and I purchased our wedding bands (and they are gorgeous by the way)and we have already picked them up and put them in a safe place. Next I went to the church and met with the wedding person there. She is the sweetest women I have ever met! Her and her husband were so great to us and were really open to any ideas or suggestions we had. My wonderful Mom went with me and she helped keep track of everything we discussed by taking notes. We got to see the brides room and the groom's room as well as talking and finalizing how we want to have the alter set up and the unity candle. So, I am feeling really good about getting that done and I know they are going to do everything they can to make us happy.
I had my hair trial this week also and I LOVE IT. My hair stylist, Ashlie at Aqua Bella, did such an amazing job and I can't wait to see it all come together with my make up and the dress. I am getting so excited and anxious about the day. I know it's going to be wonderful and it's going to be a day I am going to remember forever. Hopefully Mr. Stilts will remember the date on our anniversary. HA HA
I have also been having dress fittings every couple of weeks and slowly my dress is becoming more and more fitted to me. I can't wait to see the finished product and see it on me. The seamstress told me that her goal is to make this dress "fit me like a glove" and that I was the only woman in Nashville who has purchased this dress. So neat. I really, REALLY love my dress. I have all the accessories which I never thought I would decide on and I am going with some beautiful earrings and a really pretty silk flower in my hair. I tried on a necklace too just to see how they would look together with the earrings and it just felt like too much so no necklace for me! I think it will be fine without it. There is plenty of other stuff to look at on the dress and on me!
So my bachelorette party is next weekend and I AM SO EXCITED!! Not all my bridesmaids could come but I have a few others who are coming and I think it's going to be so much fun. We have about 6 or 7 girls going and we are going to a cabin in Center Hill lake for the weekend. Just my close friends and lots of good times!! My sister has planned the whole thing and she is such a good planner!! All of my bridesmaids have told me how wonderful she has been putting this together and planning everything. She has been so wonderful and I honestly don't know what I would do without her. Our invitations are the most beautiful things I have ever seen and I know I couldn't have designed something better if I had tried. I mean, don't get me wrong, my sister get me in the loop during the whole design process but it was her creative eye that made it all happen. We have had so many people tell us how great they look and all I can say is, "I know, they are AWESOME". :-)
So, as the days tick down there is more and more stuff being added to our "to do" list but we will get it all done and I am feeling good that everything will come together and our day will be the most wonderful day I have ever had. I sure know this, I am so happy to be 29 days away from being Mrs. Stilts.
