My oldest sister is getting married tomorrow. I apologise to everyone who is already sick of my constant bleating, but I feel it’s worthy of a mention here, both because it’s part of the reason why I haven’t been writing much and because it’s quite a big event in our lives!
After a year of preparation, it suddenly seems only a week ago that I was just about to put down my awesome poker hand and was interrupted by Brooke’s phone call.
One big lesson I’ve learned from wedding planning is that you CANNOT forget your initial aim:
To have a fantastic time with the people you love.
In the leadup to this particular wedding, as with all others, I’m sure, there have been highs and lows. The reasons for these are plenty, differing expectations, a different level of importance placed on the event by different people, stress at work, little time to get the details perfect, mis communications and, I imagine, a little bit of nerves as the bride and groom realise that this is it.
Now it’s at the stage that if anything goes wrong we can’t actually DO anything about it.
All our friends and family are arriving from around the country and world, we have dinners planned, BBQ’s and of course, the big day.
And next week, I’ll need to sleep for a week. :)
