Dear Team Practical,

I’ve been, by and large, fantastically calm and centered this week. It’s starting to freak my co-workers out, because they expect me to be stressed, and I’m in this calm Zen place. And I think one of the reasons it’s been so great is that I can literally feel this WALL OF AWESOME at my back. It’s like I feel thousands of your little hands pushing me forward with your good wishes and your cheer, so I know I don’t need to worry too much, because you guys are so *on it* for me. I know you guys will be cheering for us on Sunday, but I can literally feel you carrying us over the finish line this week. I’ll have more thoughtful reflective things to say later this week, once I’m off work and have time to breathe, but for now I wanted to say:

Thank You.

  • YES! I remember that feeling – enjoy it. But don't try to hold it. Let it wash over you in waves.

    You're going to be amazing! Breathe, take it in, breathe out. Repeat :)

    SO excited for you…

  • Meg,

    Best of luck over the next few days. I would actually like to return the thank you. I've been reading your blog for the past 9 months as I planned my wedding and it was nice to always have that bit of sanity infused back into the process. We finally tied the knot on Sunday and I don't think I've ever had a better day! Everything was so wonderful and I was still riding the high the following day.

    Remember to take it all in!

  • Go meg, Go meg…it's going to be fab! I'm so excited for you. I can't wait to hear how it goes! xxx

  • So pleased you feel like this, I can't wait for that final week now, less than 3 weeks away. Excited for you, and would also say thank you for how your blog has carried me over my last year of planning too.

  • Amazing Meg. Your words have been support and inspiration for so many too!!

  • Hi Meg,

    Love reading your blog for the wedding SANITY – omg how cute are the weddings photographed by your latest sponsor? The one with the trees? Amazing.

    Anyway, I hope you have an *amazing* day (and don't sweat the small stuff)

    Good for you.

    I am two and half months out from my wedding and not really stressed or worried. I am starting to wonder if the stressed/bridezilla bride is just another "should" created by the whole wedding industry. I actually emailed someone recently to say "am i forgetting something really important?" because i am so calm.

    Good for you/us!

  • Congratulations! – On the upcoming wedding and keeping calm while going through the process. I've just started reading your blog and already look forward to every post. It's such an inspiration while I'm going through the planning process and can tell everyone is waiting for me to stress out! I can't wait to hear all about your fabulous day – enjoy every minute!

  • you go girl. an early congrats for your special day. enjoy every moment.

  • so happy to be a brick. :)

    i hope you both have a beautiful, meaningful, hilarious, exhilarating and peaceful day. xo

  • Congratulations! I am sure your day is going to be un-freakin'-believable. Reading this blog every morning has been my favorite thing to do since I got engaged last year! I hope we get to see some pics afterwards… And please keep blogging!

  • Cate Subrosa

    You're so sweet just for writing this. I have a feeling I will be a little bit over-excited all day on Sunday!

  • K

    just wanted to say congrats on your bridal sanity (typically an oxymoron!)

    you rock. your wedding will be fabulous. you will live a wonderful life together.


  • TNM

    Yea! But really, we should be thanking *you* for all your wonderful posts and wedding sanity through the year.

    (Though I can already tell that I unfortunately am not going to be a zen bride! Even hearing about other people's imminent weddings makes me nervous & excited…)

  • awesome!

    I was the same way and people were definitely creeped out, but that just made it even better. :)

    thanks for keeping me sane throughout my planning…i made it and you will, too, yay!

  • I'm so excited for you! You're so amazing to be this calm. Don't listen to anyone trying to break that calm either. Just have fun!
