- Wedding: April 2013
The past couple weeks since I got engaged have been a whirlwind. I am so exhausted. To be honest, I think I’ve slept slept an average of 4-5 hours a night since then. I lay in bed at night staring at the ceiling, going over details of the wedding in my head and imagining what it’s going to be like. Last night I couldn’t sleep, so I took my laptop into the living room and researched wedding ideas and made spreadsheets until 2am while Fiance was sleeping! I am an official wedding planning zombie. Were any other brides like this at the beginning of their engagement? I suppose I’m just so excited because the engagement is still new. Hopefully I will reach some kind of calm soon because this girl needs her beauty sleep!
We checked out 2 different venues with our planner today. It was so exciting (I will probably lay awake tonight going over each one in my head). We still want to check out a couple more, but it feels good to be making progress. Tomorrow we are going to listen to a string quartet we are interested in for the ceremony. Must have!
I’m looking forward to the weekend. We are flying to FI’s hometown to celebrate Mother’s Day with his family. My dad will also be flying out, so it will be the first time we will all be together since the night of the engagement. I can’t wait to be surrounded by our loved ones. I plan on not doing any wedding brainstorming while we’re there. I just want to relax and enjoy!
Are there any other tired brides out there?
