So I said we would blog here and there and keep in touch. Well, my bad. It’s been busy as shit. As many things that have happened that I was like “damn that would have been a hot topic on the podcast” have happened.. there literally has been zero time. So today I figured I’d start.
So yeah. As suspected, I got engaged. The ” how” is for another time. I’ll just say I am odd, he is odd. We are both shy and kinda impulsive and now we are here. So what I didn’t know is my mother kept a secret for a whole month. We are all really proud of her. But as soon as I found out the planning phone calls began.
So as where I have never been the little girl who was waiting for her prince and the day to wear the big ball gown I apparently forgot I was someone’s daughter who had these dreams of her own. The original plan was rent a house, get some food and have a giant wedding house party weekend. Finding a house is not as easy as you think. That was one. And 2. We are adopting. (Longer blog later) it’s Alot of work and I wanted a wedding to be as simple as possible. So we’ve gone with the semi traditional route.
So I have this little problem. I don’t like having a do to list. I need organization in my life. I enjoy getting tasks checked off in a timely manner. With that being said less then 2 months after our engagement I am done planning our wedding with the exception of hair and make-up.
Do I absolutely Love Love Love every choice that I made? In short.. No. Many decisions were made to meet my folks half way and because at the end of the day the only thing that matters is the person I’m marrying. He’s pretty awesome. The venue is nice, also affordable. That’s a plus. The dress .. give me shape and looks nice on me. Who could really ask for more? The entertainment is a friend so that will be great. It’s a small amount of people (apparently 100 is small for a wedding venue) so all of my favorite people will be there to celebrate the joining of two families and at the end of the day that’s what matters. Now if I can get my mom off the fact that she thinks I need a tiara all will be good. ( Does she know me ??)
Weddings don’t have to be a hoop-la. And I am hoping even though we’ve gone with a traditional venue ,D.J. etc the end goal of marrying my best friend and celebrating drama free with the people I love is a goal we can accomplish. No brides maids , no best man, no garter belt toss.. just a celebration of Love and a old fashion house party in someone else’s ” house”.
