Last night, The Fiance's brother stayed over, while they bottled mead and I worked on table cards and place cards. There was pizza and Guitar Hero and beer. Perhaps this was a last hurrah too.
Tonight, we rehearse. Because the officiate cannot come, we will really just say, "Hey, look at this spot of earth where we're going to make it official," and hope for no rain. We'll take a look at the lovely programs, which The Fiance picked up yesterday, and then we'll go and have some good food at the casino. I think that's the big part, the good food with the close friends and family.
My head feels a little less spinny, mainly because most of the decisions were made yesterday. Messages have been left, some things are adjusted, some things left alone. And tonight is the last night I'll fall asleep as a single girl; we have decided to sleep next to one another tonight--because we have spend every other night next to each other the past two years, and every night that we could in the six years previous. Because we aren't in a long distance relationship any more and because I've allowed all the tradition I can stomach into our wedding. Because we are becoming a part of each other and because he's going to see me in my dress before anyway (for the pictures, because we don't want to guests to have to wait two hours for us to arrive after the ceremony).
I am sure I will post again today, but I just wanted to say these things upon waking--that I am getting married tomorrow, that now I am fully distracted by this event, and I feel both grounded and totally in the atmosphere. And I hear that tomorrow will be a big blur for me.
