I have a feeling this is going to be the last one of these! Cannot believe we are just 10 days away from the big day!
Our engagement was a pretty long one, and I think it’s safe to say that Kevin and I are just READY to be married. We both keep saying that this week is just dragging on because we’re both just so excited for the day to get here!

There’s not much left to do and I honestly can say that I’m not stressed in the least bit. As I said earlier, we are just so pumped for the day to be here that this week is just dragging. I’m hoping that’s the case on our actual wedding day so we can really soak it in!
Any last-minute advice, tips, suggestions as we make our final few preparations?
