47 Days

That's the number of days that we have to go until my daughter gets married.

To them, it's Close! Exciting! Let's get this party started, already!

For me? It's Aack!  We still have to (fill in the 'Fire of the Day')!

That's ok. I've done this before. Wedding? Check. Party for 150? Check.

I got married before computers were The tool for AllTheThings. Back then, we asked our friends and neighbors for recommendations, not Google. We hit the Yellow Pages and the pavement when booking florists and such. We planned our weddings based on what we had always dreamed of instead of what we had seen on Pinterest. We found our bridesmaids dresses at a bridal store, not Etsy. We hand-wrote our lists of Things to Do and consulted Brides Magazine instead of adding a reminder on our iPhones.

It's a Brave New World out there, oh Moms-Of-Brides-to-Be. And it looks little like it did when we were preparing to walk down the aisle. White dresses and tulle aside, the wedding business is booming on the internet. The choices are endless. Cautionary tale, y'all.

I can't wait to see the pictures!!!! Congratulations to getting to 47 day count down. When all is said and done it will not matter who is there, who isn't, what the place looks like or what didn't get done if only 2 people promise themselves to one another.
I'm sure they can't wait!!!
