- Wedding: July 2012
Hi Bees, (sorry this is long)
I’m pretty sure you have seen a few of my lasts posts. Lots of drama, wedding being postponed then we started planning again for a FL wedding. And well none of it happened. Well now we are crazy because we are getting married this summer. In Chicago where all of my family lives. Mostly because my parents will be up there for 3 months, and my grandmother is really sick, we dont think shes going to make it another couple months. So it gives me a chance to see her before she passes away, plus she gets to see me get married. We also thought it would be so much easier for everyone if we went up there instead of everybody trying to fly down the GA (where we live) to have a wedding. So I think this plan works out for everybody.
So we were planning on the date July 29th. This date is not set in stone yet because my parents travel for work. And we arent sure if they are working or not. But we are discussing all this tonight. But if its not on the 29th then it will be in August. But thats only a month & a half away!!! I know we are crazy for doing it so soon, but it just feels right. And I really want to make my grandmother happy. Well the hardest part is I have to plann my wedding through my other grandmother & my aunt. I have to trust them with everything! I mean they are sending me pictures of different venues but its still hard because I’m not doing any of it so I’m kind of freaking out. I wont see anything for our wedding til we drive up there a couple days before. The craziest thing is its actually cheaper to do it in Chicago then it is to do it in GA. We are on a $800 budget and so far everything is working out perfectly. The best part is that my cousin is going to school to be a pastry chef, so shes making our wedding cake for free!
But what I didnt tell you is that me & my FI are actually getting married in GA first. We are doing it here first because his mom cant walk very well, so we wanted her to see us get married, we are just doing it in a courthouse. Then in Chicago we are renewing our vows, but everyone will think its our first time getting married (except close family).
I’m just so over whelmed. I have so much stuff to do in a month! I still have to get his wedding band, and he has to rent a tux, & the little things we have going on with our dogs, we have to find places for them. I have to finish up my decorations for a wedding. I have to mail out invites next week!! ugh I’m going crazy but I’m super excited!
