Well friends, I’M MARRIED!!! AHHHH WHAT A DREAM COME TRUE OF A FREAKING DAY! I am currently enjoying that married life and will jump into documenting our big day soon, but not too soon. I’m really just trying to soak up these first couple weeks of being A WIFE! I got so busy the week of our wedding that I didn’t get a chance to post posts that I’d written. SO, we’re going to play catch up with some of them now 🙂 hopefully you guys don’t mind. Here’s the last post I wrote, on the Wednesday before our wedding last Saturday. I wrote down all the things I was feeling and reading them back now makes me cry- little Amanda had no idea how amazing the day would turn out. IT WAS THE BEST DAY EVER! Read below for those final thoughts leading up to the big day.
For my last Wedding Wednesday before my actual wedding, I wanted to take the time to sit down and write how I’m feeling. And it’s so funny, I feel SO overwhelmed with happiness and excitement that literally the other day at work, my arms started shaking because I was so happy just thinking about how close we are. It’s the strangest feeling. I’ve never felt anything like this before. I was telling one of my best friends, I have no clue how to explain it, and maybe this won’t mean much to someone who doesn’t know me, but I feel like this wedding, this day, is like my own personal Disneyland. One built just for me- and it literally brings me to tears just thinking about it.
I can’t wait to see the whole thing come together and to just be able to have a great time with my husband, closest friends and family. This day means so much to both Joey and I, and is why we’ve chosen to personally pick each and every vendor, have spent so much time, money, and energy on every little detail of the day, and have kept our guest list so intimate. (I’ll share with you all the details after my wedding, of course!)
I’ve had the absolute best time planning out every aspect of our big day, and quite honestly am going to be so sad once it’s over! I know some brides feel stress or loathe planning their wedding, but I haven’t felt that way at all. I’ve enjoyed the process and soaked up every minute of it. It’s not every day you get to throw your dream wedding, aka the biggest party of your life with all your favorite people- so you might as well enjoy the process!
Of course, there’s always little hiccups and issues with people when you’re trying to organize things with 100 different people, that’s bound to happen- but I’ll give you my thoughts on all that in a post wedding post!
I’m officially off work for the next 5 days and am just so excited and anxious to see everything. I’m hoping it turns out exactly as I’ve planned and designed it in my head and throughout my wedding binder- you guys, trust me when I say I’ve left very detailed instructions to my wedding coordinator!
I feel so happy and just so ready to marry the man of my dreams. I’ve waited my entire life for this day and it’s a total pinch me moment that it’s actually happening. Can’t wait to tell you guys all about it soon! Thank you guys for all the love and support along the way!
Soon to be Mrs. Franco
