Holy Cannoli, y’all! I’m getting married this week! I cannot believe how insanely fast this entire process has gone by. Today and tomorrow are my last days here in the office before heading to Asheville. Here’s what our week is looking like:
Monday and Tuesday: Today will be spent packing up everything we need for the ceremony and our stay in Asheville, cleaning and getting the house in order, getting the dog’s things together to stay with my sister on Wednesday and Thursday, and tying up any lose ends here at work. I’ll be getting my nails and toes done tomorrow evening to ensure they are fresh for the ceremony on Thursday.
Wednesday: We’re headed to Asheville! Our check-in at the B&B/venue isn’t until 3 p.m., but we’ve got some errands to run in Asheville and I’m sure we’ll grab lunch, so that will keep us busy until it’s time. Upon check-in, we’ll settle into our room and meet with our wedding coordinator to go over day-of details (chair placement, seating arrangements, music logistics, etc).
Thursday: It’s wedding day! Hair and makeup starts at 10 a.m. and the ceremony is set for 1:30 p.m. We’ll enjoy cake and sparkling cider with family after the ceremony before heading to a local brewery for a few hours. The brewery has food trucks and will hopefully have live music going on. Phil and I will say goodbye to everyone around 6:45ish to head to our dinner reservation, just the two of us. From there, we’ll do whatever suits our fancy. I’ve heard there’s a really fun dueling piano bar in downtown Asheville that we might check out!
Friday: We’ll check out of our B&B around 11 a.m. and head home. We’ll have the day to get packed for our honeymoon and get the dogs ready to stay with their grandparents (Phil’s parents) for a week.
Saturday: We’ll drive to Charlotte and stay the night with Phil’s parents. This is where we’ll leave our fur babies for the week, as well.
Sunday: Phil’s parents will drive us to the airport for our honeymoon! And then it’s bon voyage! We’ll set sail on our cruise out of Fort Lauderdale, FL for seven days stopping in the Bahamas, Cozumel, and Costa Maya!
We’ve got a busy, but fun week ahead and I can’t wait!
I’m not really sure when I’ll be back here on the blog just yet. I’m hoping the week of November 13th, but no promises – this is the week right after our reception! At the very latest, I hope to be back with posts the week of November 20th. Take care until then, and wish us luck! :)
