Taking time off from work before the wedding has really helped me relax. I took a leave of absence from work, 3 days before the wedding. While most of my Wednesday was spent worrying about seating, I managed to just let go and not worry about it anymore. If people not in the list start turning up, then it�s up to my coordinators to start seating them wherever they want to seat them.
Thursday was spent beautifying myself for the wedding. Since, we�ll only have our clothes washed once a week, I hoarded underwear. I now have enough underwear to last me 1 month if I wanted to. I also spent the day bonding with my sister. We went to the spa for some waxing and then I went to have a full body scrub and massage. The same night, my high school friends, best friend and sister threw a bridal shower for me. They even had a stripper that did things that we thought could not be done. :D The day was super enjoyable for me that I didn�t have time to worry about small details for the wedding.
On Friday, We checked into the hotel. We treated both families to dinner so that we can have some time to bond before D Day. I actually just slept the whole day and did not worry about anything. It just seems that everything was in place. I sent an sms to my coordinator just to tell her my room number. I spent the night in the hotel with my best friend and another friend.
Since my wedding is 9:30 AM, I woke up pretty early. I was up by 3:30 and was already done with showering and prepping myself by 4:30. I took my time because that day was my wedding day. I promised myself that I will have no worries that day, and aside from a mild panic attack, I was worry free. My MUA who I though will be late, arrived promptly at 4:45 PM. They started working on my hair and my sister�s make up. Though they started early, my make up was finished only at 8:45, leaving me little time with the photographers because I had to leave for church by 9:15. My coordinators started coming in at 5:30AM. The photographers came in at 6AM. My florist came in late with the flowers. She was supposed to be at the hotel by 6AM but was only able to deliver at 8AM. Good thing my coordinator was on top of it and I didn�t have to worry too much.
It was a good day for me. I was chirpy the whole morning because I knew that I was going to meet the man that I will spend forever with in the altar.
