- Wedding: July 2014
We’re mostly doing this because of car titles (I paid off my car under my parent’s name so they’re putting it under my name and I need to get a driver’s license for the state I live in) and needing to renew my registration on my car (my state requires inspection and I can’t get one here.. last year I had them waive it but you can’t do that twice), insurance, buying a car together and passports before our scheduled cruise. It’ll just be easier to get everything switched to my new last name and not having to get two seperate licenses within a month or two. I’ve never wanted a wedding ceremony, just receptions so I’m super excited. We literally decided this today! So crazy, but we’re off from work July 4th, with a nice weekend to follow and we can’t take any other time off to do it before the original date so it just worked out. July 4th will be a fun anniversary too! Our receptions will still be in late September and early October.
It’s kind of insane, I realize, but my family is okay with it and that’s all I was concerned about. Anyone else move up their date who eloped last minute? Also, is it terribly tacky to have receptions 3 months after marriage? Anyone else’s anniversary July 4th? Pretty cool that there will always be fireworks! 😉
