Is this real??

Ok boys and girls.
I am getting married ONE MONTH from today.
Holy freaking smokes.
I literally can't believe it.
We got engaged 13 and 1/2 months ago.
Where does time go? Will it slow down after I get married?

I mean  obviously I am thrilled to be getting married.
That is a given.
But I am also excited about other things.
Moving into our house.
Going on our amazing honeymoon.
I am ready for the madness to be over.
It is bitter sweet. I have loved planning this wedding.
I will be sad when it is all done.
And it will all go by in a flash, I know this.
Ultimately I can't wait to marry my best friend and start a new chapter.
4 weeks from today we will be setting up the tent for the wedding.
It will be chaotic and stressful and I hope I can take time to sit back and enjoy it.
I can't believe my big day is almost here!
The love of my life:)

Let the countdown begin!
As if it did start 13 months ago....
Any wedding week advice? Give it to me!!!

Biggest things I could tell you:
If something goes wrong, just take a deep breath and go with it. At the end of the day it doesn't matter if your flowers are wrong, your dress gets messed up, your ring bearer loses your rings (that one happened to me), or any other number of things...the only thing that matters is you are marrying the love of your life :) If you get hung up on the little things that is all you will see when you remember the day, and you don't want that!

Also, be prepared to feel really weird after it's all will need a hobby or something. I was in school and I still just felt like something was missing after all the planning and prep (and the wedding itself) was done.

Time goes as fast, if not faster, once you get married. One moment I was at the altar, the next we are asking ourselves what to do for our anniversary!!

I am so excited for you! I agree with the other comments to just take it all in and enjoy every moment. If things aren't exactly as you planned/expected, they will still be perfect because it's YOUR day.

For example: Our flower girl and ring bearer were pretty young (almost 2 and 3 1/2). We were warned by our snarky church provided wedding planner (who was a B) that it was a bad decision to have them in the wedding because they were too young. We decided to have them in it anyways and the 3 year old had a bit of a meltdown walking down the aisle. But you know what? It was hilarious and memorable and we wouldn't have it any other way. So moral of my very long-winded story: DO WHAT YOU WANT!
