Recaps: ground rules June 11, 2010

Okay ladies, I figured I should start with my recaps, but I wanted to let you know the deal first.

I’m not an anonymous blogger.   My pictures are on here, our wedding website is on here…people know who I am.  Sooo, that means I’ve got to be smart about my recounting of any recap that will put someone else in a bad light.  I certainly will tell the truth and being an English major should help as I tiptoe around any ticking bombs, but know that I’m not gonna be giving the blow by blow of how people showed their collective tails at various times.  I’ll figure out a way to get my point across.

Also, I wanted to start my recaps at about two weeks before the wedding…that’s crunch time y’all.  At two weeks out, your heart is beating a bit faster and your mind races.  At about a week out, you sleep very little…keep a notebook by your bed because you’ll think of all sorts of things in the middle of the night and you don’t want to be like me and have to get up every time you think of something to add to your to-do list.  About three to four days before the wedding, your house will become wedding central…or Crazytown as we came to call it.  People and stuff everywhere!

Anyhoo, we’ll chat tomorrow.  Take copious notes…there’ll be a test afterwards.

  1. Funny…I was determined to NOT have my house be crazytown at the very end 🙂 I wanted to be totally done with all the wedding stuff at least 1 to 2 weeks before the big day. I finalized everythng I could at least 2 weeks before, updated a few seating assignments and printed out new layouts a couple days ago and took ALL of my wedding stuff to my coordinator about 8 days before the wedding. There was nothing but my jewelery, gown, shoes, gifts, accessory/makeup kits, etc for me to take with me on the wedding day. It was much more relaxing for me that way.

    I feel for ya on having everything be so public and will look forward to hearing from you on your recaps. I tried to keep my blog as anonymous as possible from family and friends and even created a separate blog where I post similar but ‘revised’ versions of my posts for the family recaps 🙂

    I love the notebook by the bed idea. I feel like I get so many ideas right before I fall asleep and I tell myself I will write it down in the morning and forget! If I put a notebook by my bedside I can write down the ideas as soon as the pop into my overactive mind!
