- Wedding: March 2014
We’re almost up to our one-year engagement anniversary, we have six-and-a-bit months to go… and I just want to be married, now! Lol. I’m having one of *those* days.
Honestly, I’m at a point now where all that matters to me is getting to say “I do”, call my fiancé my husband, have him call me his wife, wear a second pretty ring on my finger, hold his hand and feel his wedding ring on his finger, and start calling myself Mrs Lastname!
I fully respect those who choose not to change their name but the honest truth is I am so freaking giddy about the thought of being Mrs Lastname and the thought of having to wait six more months is agony! I have absolutely nothing against my own last name (other than the fact that a nutso politician has just been elected here in Australia who shares that same last name! haha) but I’m just ready to share his, and for me that’s a big part of the two of us becoming one.
The one good thing about all of this is that the extra time has allowed me to start looking past the details and just focus on what’s truly important. I’m sure the flowers will be fine, I might regret not choosing a fuller dress but I’m sure that will end up being fine to, everything will slot into place but in the end that’s all just the window dressing on the most important part of all, finally getting to marry the love of my life.
The amusing thing is that we’ll have been engaged longer than we knew each other before that. But the year we’ve spent engaged has truly been one of falling even deeper in love with each other than we were when we got engaged. We’ve been through more than our fair share of trials & tribulations, yet we’ve learned more about each other in the process and our relationship has grown stronger as a result.
I just wish it was only a month or two to go now, not six!
