AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I get married this week! I can count the number of days on one hand!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I don't know how i am going to get everything done in time!!!!!!
I have to finish the placecards and drop them off tomorrow evening. Still need to pick music, i have 50 OOS to staple together. I really need to catch up on sleep! I am so tired.
I've had a pretty bad run of luck this weekend so i am a bit stressed and finding it hard to get excited today. I know i should be.

ANyway congrats to the girls that just got married. Funky your photos so far have looked great!

omfg, less than 2 weeks to go and a major drama emerges. A guy my dad works with said right from the beginning he would video our wedding and all we had to pay for was the camera hire. He just texted (!) my dad to say he can't do it because he didn't realise it was Grand Prix weekend and he's working there. WHAT THE F**K!!!!! I never researched any videographers but I know they're expensive and I'm sure at this stage it would be hard to even find someone, let alone someone decent.

Autumn I know what you mean! It is like everything/everyone is trying to stress us before Saturday (is it too late to ditch a nasty/lying bridesmaid??). I am just glad I finished work last week so as i can spend this week with my gorgeous man preparing for our honeymoon - as the wedding stuff seems mostly ready to go and as my MIL confessed yesterday, she has been telling people for six months we could get married today as we were so organised (love her optimism, not sure I shared it six months ago! :roll: ).

Hey Autumn,
I can understand the stress!!! So glad i only have 1 more day at workto go.

Hopefully finished the bridesmaids pressies tonight, apart from now we have "isolated showers" predicted for Saturday in melbourne.... Which is a shame... lucky i brought the spare marquees!!

Feeling better today, fh and i picked all our music, placecards will be finished shortley, abused the reception centre on the phone so hopefully they will pull their head out (I didn't go totally bridezilla on them, just enough for them to see i am getting pissed off and stressed for a very valid reason). Last day of work so just making sure today everything is simple enough for everyone to cope with out me - got asked this morning how to use the dishwasher!
Still tired - barely slept last night, just kept thinking about wedding stuff! It was really bad not being able to shut my brain off!!!!
Anyway - fingers crossed the cyclone doesn't leave to much damage in Fiji - we rang the hotel they said they will be fine but fhs grandmas island has been destroyed.

I am also being stressed out by people (i hope are joking) saying "so the ceremony starts at 2 doesn't it?" no its starts at 1:30! That is not a funny joke to play!!!!!!!

hey Autumn

I'm having the sleepless nights too, bring on 5pm when I finish work for the week!
I'm getting nails done tomorrow so I am excited.

hope there isnt too much damage in Fiji for you Autumn!

starting to do the final preparations, the bridesmaids dresses are finished, pciking up the suits tomorrow.
Still hoping the weather changes. According to bom I can expect isolated showers :(

But went out and got clear umbrellas just incase for the photo shoot. Have a meeting with the photographer today.
Has anyone else experienced people thinking its funny that you are excited about your wedding day?

People keep expecting me to be really nervous but i don't think you could wipe the big grin off my face! Everytime someone says i will see you on saturday i get even more excited! And everyones facebook posts saying "got my dress for saturday can't wait"

At least you got one. What does the 2K include? One of our wedding guests actually does videographing and has said he's bringing his camera with and filming the important stuff for us as a gift - I didn't really want one because i hate my own voice but it might be nice to see what everyone else has seen on the day.

I'm totally nervous! Excitement hasn't hit yet.

For the $2k we get 2 cameras (one operator), 6.5 hours of coverage, 5 dvds and all the raw footage - which is good, because then I get to play with it and do my own edits! I was surprised they weren't booked actually, I really like their style. I'm still so angry at the idiot who canceled on us though.

Eeek it's so close for you! I'm spinning out that tomorrow it'll be single digits for me! Only 3 more days of work :D :D

Although, next week I'll be busier than I ever am here.. :lol:

We're meeting with the videographer tomorrow night. Fingers crossed it's all as good as it appears! Especially since FH's sister is overseas and can't get here, we'd be devastated if they couldn't at least see the wedding somehow.

God I thought I was all calm cool and collected until I saw all the comments about single digits 8O *hyperventilating into brown paper bag*

On (another) good note, only 3 more shifts at work until I'm on holidays!! YAY
