First and foremost, my wedding dress FINALLY arrived. It was the correct color this time, but, of course, they sent it to the wrong house. Oh and you know how you have to sign for important packages (i.e. wedding dresses) or UPS won't leave it? Yeah. I waited all day at my mom's house to sign for it and it never came. There I was, imagining some UPS man went rogue and drove my dress to Mexico, when really, the bridal shop just sent it to the wrong house. LOL. A few heated phone calls later, I picked it up from UPS myself and now, all is well.
While most of my wedding planning woes have subsided, I still find myself insanely stressed about such a big day. You know why? Because there's an infinite number of things that could go wrong. I've never been a pessimist, but when it comes down to being the center of attention in front of everyone you've ever known, preventative planning is key. Here are my biggest wedding nightmares:
|Me, walking toward my future husband|
2. I spill something on myself. Going back to my utter lack of grace, this is also a likely disaster. I can just picture myself spilling something so permanent like red wine all down my dress. (And don't tell me to drink white wine. White wine is for people who don't like wine.)
3. I rip my dress. This might actually more likely than spilling on the dress. I'm pretty much the queen of walking too close to doorways and having that little latch part (what's that called? actually, I don't care) rip straight through my shirt.
4. I go down the aisle at the wrong time. Like, in my daymares, I just picture me forgetting when I'm supposed to go down the aisle and then I'm the first one there. And then it's the worst awkward situation because I have to leave and then come back again later.

I'm not under the impression that nothing will go wrong on our wedding day, but I'll be fine as long as none of these things do. I'm taking precautions (looking into bubble wrap for pre-ceremony dress protection) so I'll just ask y'all to do me a favor and put me on your prayer lists and whatnot. It takes a village to make sure I don't make an ass of myself.
