Today was sheer craziness. Mostly in the good "so much to do but it's all going well oh look pretty flowers" way, but a bit in the "what do you mean my sister-in-law and mother are both angry at me for something they chose to do?" way. Oh, and the "making a blind left turn and ohdeargod *crunch*" way, which really wasn't helpful for anybody. (Everybody's fine, though, thank heavens, and Sneaky (the car) didn't take any major damage.)

The negatives: (to get them out of the way) My sister-in-law is apparently radiating hostility towards everyone, and particularly me. We went to Pike Place Market to get the flowers for the wedding (tomorrowomgSQUEE!). She, my mother, my brother, and my niece (insanely cute kidlet, btw) wanted to get something to eat. The bridesmaids and I (minus one, who was heading in later that evening) wanted to get the flowers taken care of quickly. So we told them to go and grab something to eat and that we'd get started with the flowers, and meet up with them. Half an hour later, I get a call from my mother saying that they're at a sit-down restaurant, and that they were just going to head back to the hotel after they finished eating. Basically, she told me that my SIL was feeling left out, like we were purposefully excluding her, and my mother didn't sound to pleased about it, either. Cut to a few hours later, when I talk to my mother and find out that my SIL is basically upset that she couldn't be a bridesmaid/maid of honor/someone doing something in the wedding, and that, since she's "family", she should have more say in what's going on. I don't have a very good relationship with this woman - this is the third time I've ever seen her, for one thing. So, no, I was not going to ask her to be a bridesmaid. Her idea of "Family" is an extremely screwy one, but that's a whole other post. Suffice to say, at least my mom's not angry at me - she was just frustrated that she had to deal with the SIL while she was being so bitchy.
Also, the car holding me and three bridesmaids was hit as we were on the way to the rehearsal. Yeah, that was fun. All is well, though, and we survived.

The positives: My bridesmaids get along smashingly. Seriously, amazingly well. They threw me a lovely bridal shower on Thursday, and it was beautiful all around. This was one of my big worries, seeing as all of them are friends from different stages of my life, and thus didn't know each other. I was so glad.
Rehearsal went well, rehearsal dinner was marvelous (BBQ....mmm, brisket), and everyone liked their gifts.
I managed to get my wedding flowers for under $70. Granted, it's just for bouquets and posies for the mothers, but still. I get to have daffydills in my wedding bouquet - it's one of those things that I always wanted to happen, but I never set my heart on it. Bread-and-butter daffodils, iris, and white iris. One of my bridesmaids is putting them together and they're going to be marvelous, I can tell.

And now, to sleep. Because I'm getting married in the morning. Ding, dong, the bells are gonna chiiiiiiiime...

We are the best damn bridal party EVAR. We could totally take on any other bridal party out there. Just point us at 'em. Of course, it was hilarious the way the groomsmen held their line at the rehearsal, and over on the bride's side, we can barely keep standing, and kept drifting into a conversational circle. Also, my sides hurt from laughing so hard. Seriously, this is my favorite wedding so far.

Everything went swimmingly! You were beautiful, your husband handsome, and your wedding party seemed to be just that, a party. *grin*

Way, way belatedly
...but deepest, heartfelt congratulations. I hope that your life and your life together with your new husband roll out through fields of daffydills and skies full of bubbles.
