- Wedding: March 2013
Okay we got engaged 12/2011 and I picked the wedding date for 3/2013. Aaah enough time to smell the roses and take my time to plan…… NOT SO MUCH.We are completely out of pocket and on a budget, did I mention a save as we go budget? Okay yes that has to be mentioned to add to this confusion. So much has happened in the last few months, lots of little trials that has been making our relationship stronger. From time to time I stop and check on your blogs and make note of your inspiration and read the blogs to make me smile and totally relate, but then I go on my day as if I have no care in the world…
While sifting through my inbox of emails I noticed a wedding ticker alert I must have signed up for months ago and it said 10 months, 3 weeks to your wedding (expletitives said in my head). I just about dropped my laptop. That’s it, that is all the time we have? What the heck have I accomplished? I know the wedding colors….I think. But there are still lots and lots to do…..there is the formal annoucement that we never did about being engaged, ( don’t get me wrong we have told a few family and friends but we haven’t told the masses) there is the caterer I need to find and negotiate into our very meager budget, there is the saving I need to track, there are the countless DIY projects I will have to take on due to our budget and of course the dress. Over the last few months I leisurely stopped working out and gained…..gulp lets not get into that shall we….too depressing thinking hey I have all the time in the world. All is not lost…I shall FOCUS right now and find that checklist I made months ago. I basically painted myself in this panic arena from my own doing. I am a planner and I am pretty good at prioritizing, I am excited about our wedding so why ever did I let the little things in my life make me forget this very big event that is planned. Changing the wedding date is an option but I am not so sure I want to do that. I just need to get it together and hit the ground running…….seriously
Can anyone else relate? Did you start planning but then put it on the back burner thinking you had all the time in the world and realized just how untrue that is?
