Today, I received an e-mail from my lovely MOH about good dates to have the Bachelorette party and the Bridal shower. The subject line of her e-mail read: Getting close to the BIG DAY. I do not know what word would describe the reaction best... perhaps, hyperventilation. Time has gone extremely fast and we have less than 4 months before THE day. I mean, it feels like it was yesterday when we got engaged and began planning our wedding and we have 4 months to plan the perfect day. As I have mentioned before, it has been a fantastic, emotional, and positively life changing time in our lives.
