Wedding Talk

T-minus 97 days and counting.

It’s getting real. The RSVP’s are starting to come back, and the nerves are starting to arrive with them. Since we’ve had so much time to plan and prepare, I didn’t expect there to be so many nerves this early. Boy, I was wrong. Maybe I’m just anxious to finally have it happening. Maybe I’m nervous because it IS actually happening. Either way, I’m excited to have a day that’s all about me. And him, of course.

{The Dress}Dress shopping can be overwhelming. I didn’t know exactly what to expect when we walked inside, but it wasn’t long before I realized it was up to ME to pick the perfect dress. No pressure there!
I went through several dresses, then picked four of my favorites. The very first dress I tried on, made me cry. I couldn’t believe how beautiful it was. When I walked out of the dressing room, my bridesmaids started taking photos and let me know right away that this was a definite contender.
I narrowed it down to two dresses, and then tried them on again. Because there was such a big price difference between the two, I needed to step back and allow myself to think about it. I didn’t want to be forced to get a dress just because the cost was right, but didn’t want to spend more than necessary on a dress I’m going to wear once.

A few days later, I went back and tried them on again. This time, I already had my mind made up when I walked into the store. I walked out having picked a dress. A beautiful dress. A dress that I’ll only wear once.

{Wedding Party}
My MOH and Bridesmaids have all ordered their dresses. My two flower girls have both received their dresses, and my mother has already purchased and altered her dress. Now it’s time for the guys to get their tuxes ordered.

I went and looked at colors so that when the guys go, they already know what they are getting. No surpises. However, I feel like I jumped the gun when I picked the tie color, so I need to go back and rethink that. Ugh. I really wish my MOH lived closer. Doing all this stuff alone isn’t any fun.

Since SS and I have lived together for over six years, we have everything we need to fill our home. This means we don’t need a blender, or a mixer, or china dishes we will never use. This means that we would rather our friends and family donate their money to our honeymoon fund, so we can have an amazing time in paradise. I just don’t exactly know how to get the word out that we don’t need gifts. Hmmm…

Stay tuned for more Wedding Talk as we get closer.
