Bridgette’s Wedding Day Countdown: I’m Getting Married in 5 Days!

Today’s gonna be a doozy! I’ve been up since 5ish this morning sending emails and making lists. There’s still more lists to write, too. (Mr. TK thinks I make too many lists but my mother has warned him I inherited that from my dad. “She got it honest,” she told him. They now have lots of conversations about me in front of me; they’re too funny.) Here’s what is on my list for today:

Pack. (for real, for real) – I have only completed about 25% of my packing. Technically I’m having a destination wedding: The nuptials are taking place in North Carolina and I live in New York. I’m not just packing a weekend bag to stay in Manhattan for a couple nights.

Get eyelashes done. – Individuals, y’all!

Get nails done. – Part 1 (My girl Lisa, who is also a wedding guest will still pamper my digits the morning of the wedding but we’re prepping today to save time and to avoid Lisa having to bring her entire kit to N.C. later in the week.)

Review logistics with my DJ. – Since DJ Battle of One Sound & Entertainment is providing my music and lighting, I am not stressing about this too much (He’s a beast at what he does!) but I’m a music lover and everyday I think of another song I want him to play. Literally.

Buy escort cards. – I should have ordered them online ahead of time but oh well.

Get signs printed for signage and reception fun on

Continue finalizing the guest list for the welcome meet and greet and farewell fish fry. – Why don’t folks like to RSVP?

Try to at least do a drive-by to the Martha Stewart Weddings Party tonight. – Since I have been neck-deep in planning, I’ve missed practically all the bridal market shows and events. A bummer but I’ll make sure Triple B is back on the scene next season. If I make the Martha Stewart fete tonight, great. If I don’t, life goes on.

Stop worrying. – The ceremony is scheduled to take place outdoors. I checked yesterday and there is a 30% chance of rain on Saturday. Woosah. Both Mr. TK and our coordinator Summer have assured me that this isn’t something I should fret about.

There’s more but I gotta run! Follow me on Instagram to see my nail transformation with Lisa. She did do Beyonce’s nails for her wedding (seriously) but more importantly she’s the hardest working manicurist you or I will ever know.

  1. This is so fun..definitely enjoy reading the countdown and I love that you are not losing site of what it’s all about!!

  2. Things will all work out fine! This sounds much like my wedding week a few weeks ago. Wedding in NC, honeymoon in saint lucia, and we live in NY. Wedding programs were still being printed and seating charts and pictures for reception had to be finished. It will all work out. And, it rained on our wedding – it was to be outside on the Biltmore Estate, but our plan B was absolutely perfect for the day. The day started off with a rainbow in the sky and one of my vietnamese guests and friends coming to visit to share that rain on your wedding day means good luck and many blessings. The love and joy of you and your fiance will be the main attraction.

    Happy Wedding Week!!!


  3. Hang in there, lady! It’ll all be fine.
    I have every confidence that you & Mr TK will keep the focus on all the right things- God, each other and family/good friends- so this will be a glorious time with wonderful memories created. I can’t wait to hear more when you get back from all of this fun.

    As for people failing to RSVP: I know, right!!! How hard is it to mail a card, send an email or call someone…I will never understand people. I just find it funny at this point. I have already told my planner that my wedding day mantra will be, “Don’t nobody bring me NO BAD NEWS” so she will be working the RSVP board and making it all good that day.

  4. Oh my goodness! Good luck and I’m sure everything will turn out wonderfully! I will be waiting for pictures and details (that you are willing to share) with bated breath!

  5. STAY CALM! Everything will come together by Saturday. I got your back.

    Hi cousin enjoy your day and make it memorable. God bless this union.


  7. Just keep praying on the rain situation…It literally rained in Georgia for the whole summer, but on my wedding day, it probably rained less than five minutes…Thank God!

  8. Praying for you that everything will work out nicely in the end! I’m in the process of wedding planning as we speak and we are literally 19 days away from our big day! I like you, LOVE lists!! :) Be calm and everything will be beautiful in the end! I have to give myself the same advice as well! The focus will be about the love and happiness between you and your fiancé. It will be a memorable and loving day! Inhale, exhale and ENJOY!!! God Bless! :)
