Only 3 days left until I become a Mrs!!!! People keep asking me if I am nervous and my answer is no. It just feels like any other week (well busier) but it still has not registered in my mind that I am getting married........which may be good.

Here is my final to-do list:

  • Finish month end books at work
  • Go tanning
  • Finish packing for the honeymoon (I am almost packed but the future hubby is a completely different story)
  • Pack the dogs food, toys and beds for the pet lodge
  • Put laundry away
  • Pick up around the house
  • Drop off my engagement ring to be re-rhodium plated*
  • Pick up my wedding dress and veil (EEEEEH! I can't wait to see it!)
  • Get full set of nails and pedi with matron of honor......relaxation!
  • If there is any packing left, finish it
  • Run final load of laundry
  • Pick up programs from April and begin to assemble
  • Pray that the menu cards and guest favor cards are in the mail so that I can begin to assemble
  • Drop dogs off at pet lodge
  • Pick up engagement ring and weddings bands (fingers are crossed that future hubby's wedding band will be there since it isn't being delivered until Friday)
  • Start hauling everything downtown to the hotel and SRC
  • Finish assembling programs, menu cards, and guest favor cards
  • Rehearsal/Rehearsal dinner
  • Girls sleep over in the chairman's suite at the hotel! :-)
  • Get married and have fun!
There you have it, my final to-do list!

*Rhodium is a precious metal and is used on the surface of jewelry to resist scratches and tarnish and to give a white, reflective appearance. Rhodium plating (rhodium electroplating) refers to the technique of covering the surface of jewelry with Rhodium. Rhodium plating does not last forever which is why after a while white gold will begin to lose its luster. Jewelry that is worn everyday (ie- engagement rings and wedding bands) may need to be re-rhodium plated after 2 years. Prices will vary based on the thickness of the rhodium plating and the complexity of the jewelry. A thicker rhodium plating will ensure that the shiny appearance lasts longer. You can read more about rhodium plating here.

Have a great Wednesday!!!!!

Yay!! Can you believe how fast the time went? I was chatting it up with the Mr. and am pretty shocked that we only have 2.5 weeks left.

Good luck with the last few days!

How exciting! I can't wait to see pics of the big day.

And a big thank you for the info on the plating. My ring is only a year old and it already is losing it's shine (and full of scratches on underside). I will look into this further.
