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

The great news: I made it to Charlotte! Hello, Bojangles and hearing folks say “reckon” regularly. I’m about as Southern as a New York gal can be so it isn’t too much of a surprise to most of my friends that I wanted to jump the broom in North Carolina. Time is flying by. Here’s what I have on the itinerary for today:

  • Tie up loose ends with the makeup artist and hairstylist.
  • Secure a hair appointment for Mr. TK. His locs are way past his shoulders. I find it hilarious that his salon appointments are now longer than mine.
  • Finish slideshowEeek!
  • Pick up a few last minute items with my mom. This will involve us going to Party City, Harris Teeter, Kohl’s and Dollar General.
  • Get posters printed.
  • Finish bridesmaid gift bags and cards.
  • Get a workout in — I’ve so neglected my (already sporadic) fitness regimen the last couple of weeks.
  • Finish vows.
  • Work out final details for welcome meet and greet Friday night after rehearsal.
  • Relish in my bargain hunting skills. Remember how I was trying to find a garter? Well, I scooped up one in Michael’s yesterday for $3.99! (In the words of Puff: Take that, take that.)
  • Decide which earrings I’m wearing on the big day. The folks at Simon G. loaned me gorgeous diamond jewelry for Saturday and I’m still undecided on which earrings I should wear. Look at the pic below and then leave a comment to help me decide.

    (In my Beyonce voice) “To the left to the left.” Both are gorgeous, but I think the longer ones will be amazing with your dress.
