- Wedding: August 2013
I feel like my wedding is being Hi-jacked. SO much of what I had envisioned for this day is different. I know that sounds crazy, but I hardly recognize my childhood dream.
I wanted a long engagement, I believe that to maintain my own sanity I would need at least a full year to organize. Instead my FH waited exactly 1 month and did a private ceremony with just our pastor and parents. With plans to do the full on wedding (ceremony and reception) in August (just 6.5 months later).
Which brings me to my next point, I always wanted to get married in October. Have fall colors and a fall theme. But since I am marrying a teacher a summer was our only option (not a big deal).
I wanted to have a barn/ county chic wedding, we are getting married in a museum. I am seriously doubting my burlap choice in the industrial venue 🙁 In fact I doubt a lot of my choices.
I wanted a guest list of 200 at the absolute max. I feel like once a week, we are adding more people (including the mechanic!) The FIL has come up with a list of 30+ people and keeps throwing more on it. For instance the FH’s, grandma’s, cousin’s, 80 year old widower and his new girlfriend! There are SO many people on the guest list that I don’t even know, that I don’t want to do a receiving line because of that.
Instead of a buffet style dinner we are doing passed appetizers (which scares the crap out of me, that there will not be enough food).
My maids have been a nightmare.
I am SO SO SO excited to marry the love of my life and if just he shows up its worth it. Please tell me I am not the only one who feels this discouraged. Like there is a timeline of emotion.. For example: at 6 weeks you are going to get super bummed 🙁
