Holly Winter, no I am not joking, that really will be my new, ever-so-seasonal name come this Saturday. With only a few days left until the circus begins, I am almost ready for what this weekend will have in store for me (the Zapwater girls will be on wedding patrol, a shout out to Allison for her program cutting skills, helping me stay sane for the last hours of single life). After a crazy work week last week, The Brixton Group open house and fashion show, as well as the Dress & Dash fall runway show at Crimson, I am looking forward to the most important event of my life…our (I like to include Michael so I don’t seem like a Carrie Bradshaw-esque bride, we all remember the scene with Miranda) wedding.So, you might be wondering, how does a wedding and work mix? It’s all relative, but I think the breaking point came last week when I was going through an RSVP list and thought, what about the programs and favors? Or, it could have been when I started to tear up from excitement at a work event when people started to point out the big day was looming. Maybe it was way back when my veil arrived and I paraded around the office like a five year old. It’s hard to tell. All I know is that I would never have it made this far without a true bridezilla moment if it wasn’t for such a fun, understanding, supportive and amazing group of co-workers. And, if Mayra wasn’t taking the plunge, I don’t know what I would have done, she is the Paper Source Diva! I have felt like Kelly Edwards, the queen of all things chic and DIY, for months…that’s what happens when you are working on a budget.

Now all the hard work will finally pay off, I have never been so excited or anxious for an event! Stay tuned for a recap and photos, this is going to be a good one!
