Last Post!!! (novel)

I wrote this in word and pasted it so sorry about the weird formatting.

Ok ladies its that time! I am off to Miami tomorrow to start my wedding weekend!
I can not believe it is my time to write my last post as a Miss!!! Which I never thought I would actually do. I came to this board not even thinking about the wonderful people on it. I thought I would get some vendor info and that was it. (who gets hooked on the knot and online people?) Well… lol I got hooked.  I wish I could have gone to some GTG’s but they were either too far from me or I wasn’t in town. L I would have loved to meet you lovely ladies in person. 

Sad but true:Told time and time again: Be careful who you ask to be in your bridal party. Even though you have been best friends with someone since you were little doesn’t mean they will be eager to be a part of your wedding. In fact most of the time they aren’t or they may be but don’t know how to express it and be “happy” or helpful. I realized it is better to a bridezilla than laid back. Delegate tasks and don’t give them too many options because they won’t know what to do and just stress you out. (or that could just be my bridal party)

Don’t try on too many dress, you will get confused! I never had that “wow” bridal moment, but still love my dress. Once you buy your dress stop shopping! I tried so hard to stop watching Say Yes to the Dress but I love it and it made me rethink my dress every time I saw it. I think only because I wanted to go and try on a million more.

Don’t share too many details with people. You want some things to be a surprise. Don’t share things with people that are negative or question your every decision. It will make you rethink yourself and drive you crazy. (my mom)

If you get bad vibes from a vendor don’t use them!

Don’t sweat the small stuff. No one will remember if you had a program, favors what color your flowers are etc. If you can’t have your favorite flower, get something close. It is not important.

Definitely start planning as early as you can.

Start DIY stuff early as long as it won’t get ruined in storage.

Pay off things as early as you can!

And the ceremony is about you and your FI, the reception is for everyone else! Lol if you remember that you’re  golden.

Ok enough from me! I tried to reply to as many posts as I could to help other knotties. You ladies have been so helpful and wonderful to me! Most of you are so close and I can’t wait to read about your day and see pics. Good luck to everyone in all the planning and the whole process, use theknot as your diary/best friend/therapist and know whatever you say won’t be repeated to others. (that know you anyway!)

I will be back to post reviews of my vendors. I have to work the 3 days in between the wedding and Honeymoon L So hopefully I will have time then.
