The day was fabulous. Lots of friends and family and not to mention Love and Laughter. Yes, it was probably as nauseatingly "cute" as it sounds. Husband kept on tearing up in church and I just kept laughing at him as he was the one who wasn't "too bothered about the whole marriage thing" as it should not make a difference [true]. But, he did say it meant so much more than he could ever have imagined. I know, that it was seeing our little Boy walking down the aisle next to his cousin that set Husband of.
There's nothing that I would change - not the stress with the soloist cancelling 10 days before or finding a new one, not the hassle/stress with so called friends who kept demanding to be picked up/dropped off at the train station the day before or the day after our wedding (although I'm still pretty upset with them) or anything else, for that matter.
My parents had worked the beeee-hiiinds off to get it spot on and they were worried I wouldn't like the decorations. They needn't have worried as it was perfect. Everything was something that was personal to us, something that showed who we were. Others might not have gotten everything but who cares? It was our wedding, not theirs. Birches, moss, pinecones (I am a country girl through and through) and so on and so on.
So, would I do it again?
Vegas is always an option.... ;)
I doubt I'll write here again but it was fun while it lasted even though the posts are far and few between.

Anyhow, Boyfriend and I just sorted a few things out. Like the favours and I am getting more and more excited. The things that were sort of getting messed up - soloist having to cancel - are sorting themselves out and I spoke to the new soloist today and I cannot thank her enough for doing this on such short notice. One of my cousins have also worked her arse off to find a new girl as she recommended the first one and luckily she also knows a lot more people around here so she knew of this new girl. But it hasn't been easy for her and I'll make sure she knows I know and appreciate it all.
And just to top it all. Baby N pooped on the patio today. I must say I am glad it was on the patio and not in the pool. It would have taken longer to clean up all the toys and the pool... And yet I am really excited.

It's the first one I chose and paid for but the third one to enter this very household.
You may ask "huh?". And if I hadn't done this myself, then I'd say so too. You see, I bought this dress but then had a panic as I knew it wouldn't get here until July (I thought mid/late) which, if it was totally wrong, could be a disaster and I'd end up wearing something I'd have to pick out the day before and therefore get married in an ill fitting, ugly dress. So to at least have a back up dress I would be happy to wear, I decided I needed an extra. So I bought two.
Out of those two, one was absolutely a wearable, make-me-feel-pretty-and-flattering dress. I'd only need to alter the length and the colour is very nice -dark ivory. The other one was very pretty and all that but when I put it on, it just felt wrong. But as it turns out I won't need any of those two dresses because THE DRESS arrived today!!
It's so pretty, oh so pretty (and heavy) and it just needs a bit of tweaking to get the perfect fit but it's so right... and just how it looked on the picture. Baby N smiled when I quickly tried it on and I chose to take that as a "oh-mamma-you're-the-prettiest-girl-ever-and-I'll-never-find-a-girl-that's-as-good-and-pretty-as-you" and not "oh-dear-lord-I'd-better-smile-and-then-go-in-for-the-kill-to-save-the-world-from-such-hideousness" in a Stewie Griffin kind of way. It's easy when he doesn't really talk.
I won't look like the girl on the picture but very few people do anyway as she's stunning (think Mila Kunis but taller). I just know that I am very happy and I will feel pretty walking towards the love of my life (Baby N) and my husband-to-be (whatever his name is).
Now... those darned shoes!!

Grefven har ritat upp en skalenlig modell av ladan vi ska ha festen i och vi har kommit fram till att vi kan få plats med alla gäster. Men det blir trångt. Typ.
Vid det här laget borde också de flesta inbjudningar ha kommit fram - hurra för att gästerna älskar inbjudningskortet lika mycket som jag gör!

Bröllopsbudgeten verkar hålla iaf, vi har redan sparat ihop mer än budgetplanen hade tänkt - detta tack vare att vi jobbat såpass mycket att det inte funnits ork och tid att spendera pengarna...
Jag längtar nu till påsk- och sommarlovet så bröllopsplanerandet sätts igång ordentligt.

...it's time to send out the Save the Date Cards to my "homies" i.e. the ones living in Sweden. The English guests have already received theirs but they might need a tiinsy winsy bit more time to plan and book flights etc. So if everything goes to plan I'll post the StDC tomorrow. Finally!
