Dan and I set a date for the wedding!! Weeeee!!!! Found the most gorgeous place EVER where we can have the ceremony and the reception in the same room! All that will change is that after the ceremony is done, they will bring in a table for us to sit at. (I figure I’ll probably want to eat sitting down.)
But so after we got that set, I both felt better and more stressed about this whole wedding thing. Better because we finally had a date (and location!), so that meant everything else could get done or at least started. But I was more stressed because now there was so much to do!!!! Having a priority checklist has been helping, it gives me only a few tasks to focus on that need to be done sooner rather than later, and everything else can wait. However, the concept of centerpieces is quite daunting…
I’ve realised a trend though, in the whole “wedding planning” concept. The man isn’t included. Everyone keeps asking me about MY wedding, and it’s not MY wedding. It’s OUR wedding. Ours ours OURS!!! But when I try to tell people this, they smirk and go “yeah okay uh huh”. But I really do mean it. Dan has helped me pick out my dress, and ring, the venue, the invitations, EVERYTHING. He’s as much a part of this as me, but everyone seems to think that this is just about me. And I don’t like it. *pout + foot stomp*
We’ve got this whole thing down, I just wish everyone else would stop following the sheep in front of them.
