What’s a Mother To Do: One Month and Counting

Today Emily and I are spending the full day together for the final fitting (fittings) of her wedding gown. The two of us meet Tami in the morning and after making adjustments, Tami will send us on our way awaiting her call to return so Emily can try on the dress again…more pins, more adjustments…and then we’ll leave Tami to her work again. We’ll repeat throughout the day until the dress is complete.

In between our visits with Tami, Emily and I will look for garage sales, pick up wedding items in the craft stores, make lists, lists, and more lists, and shop for shoes for me to wear to the wedding. Since we’ve been told this final dress making process may take ten or more hours, we’ll have lots of time to take care of items on our to do list, but at the end of the day, the dress will be complete and Emily will be taking it back to Orlando.

The last couple of weeks we’ve been busy taking trips to the wedding venue at the Apopka Airport, placing calls to vendors confirming details, making items to add a personal touch, and tracking RSVPs. It will be nice to spend the day together putting the finishing touches on plans for “the best day ever”.

Who knows? We might even be able to sneak a movie in if we have a little down time.

It’s hard to believe the wedding is only a month away!
