Bride-to-be Blogger Leslie: Wedding Weekend is Here!


What a crazy last few weeks it has been! I can’t believe I am days away from being a bride and becoming a Mrs.! It doesn’t seem real to me that I am about to be married. Charles and I have been waiting 18 months for this day and our wedding week is finally here!

Since I last blogged I had the most amazing surprise bahelorette party ever, planned and thrown for me by my bridesmaids. We spent the weekend in Avalon, and after a relaxing morning of yoga on the beach, a limo shuttle picked us up and took us to Atlantic City for the night. It was an incredible night and I am so thankful for my friends, they are the best! (For some pics of our amazing night, go here.)

And ever since then, it has been a whirlwind two weeks before the Big Day. It has been two weeks filled with finalizing last minute details, doing a little bit of damage control, trying my best not to stress out too much and just enjoying every minute. I can’t tell you how excited I am for the festivities to begin: We have a dinner Thursday night planned with both my family and Charles’ family, manicures and pedicures followed by a bridal party luncheon on Friday, the rehearsal followed by the rehearsal dinner later that evening — and then it’s time to get the wedding day started!

Wish me luck this weekend, and please pray for good weather! After all the wedding fun, Charles and I head straight to our honeymoon on Monday where we will spend two weeks in Greece and Turkey! I can’t wait!

Any advice for me before I head into my Big Day? I want to try and slow everything down and not miss a thing!
