- Wedding: May 2013
Our original plans…
Location for Ceremony & Reception: My parent’s backyard, tent wedding
Time of Day: Saturday evening
Caterer: Mac & Cheese Buffet served by our favorite bar
Booze: provided by friends, served by a hired bartender
Wedding party: Just MOH/BM and two ringbearers and two flower girls
For a million different reasons….budget, wanting to include family members more, and convenience….here’s our new plan-
Location for Ceremony & Reception: Lodge at a local park I had never even heard of….but it’s amazing! Ceremony & reception on site and amazing staff!
Time of Day: Friday evening (it’s what was available in May..and it’s just a couple weeks later than our original date)
Caterer: booked through venue (they use an awesome local restaurant with great reviews)
Booze: booked through venue…easy!
Wedding party: 5 attendants each…plus two flower girls and two ring bearers (wow!)
Music: Sound system provided by venue, plus an Ipod with a wedding playlist app
My dear stepmom is floored at how much has changed and that I’m happy about all the changes. She’s skeptical that this is really what will make me happy. I don’t get it. I’m very much someone who gets excited about something and finds all the positives right off the bat….so sometimes when the realities of what’s involved come to light, I discover I wanted something else all along, and I’m good with that! That’s called adapting to life!
The Man and I are happy and can’t wait to celebrate this day with our friends and family!
Has anyone else completely changed their mind on what they wanted?
