8 Crazy Nights

Posted on: April 22, 2011

We’re just eight days away from the wedding. This time next week, the shower and bachelorette party will be over, hopefully my hangover won’t be too bad, and I’ll be getting ready to take care of those last-minute details and attend the rehearsal.

It seems crazy that something we’ve planned for so long is finally almost here. It doesn’t even seem real.

It’s hard to say what I’m feeling in these final days. I’m excited. I’m terrified. I’m worried about a million little things (and some big things as well). Will everything get done in time? Will I be able to relax and enjoy the day, or will I be a crazy stressball? Will it feel meaningful enough, or will I just feel like I’m playing at getting married? And how will I feel once the wedding is over? (Because I’m a planner by nature, I’ve already planned a project to fill the empty hours that previously were ALL WEDDING ALL THE TIME.)

This really isn’t how I expected to feel in the days leading up to my wedding. I didn’t expect to feel so achingly alone. And I didn’t expect to be so fraught with worry. I never truly understood why people said wedding planning was stressful.

I don’t have a pithy wrap-up to this post. I don’t have a lesson I’ve learned from it. Hopefully, the lesson will be apparent later, after the wedding. Right now, I just needed to get it out there.
