- Wedding: October 2011
Yesterday my fh (whom hasn’t “officially” proposed yet) told me that we should begin planning for our wedding–on October 15th! As college graduation nears and job applications to places such as various European countries have been going out, we’ve realized that unless we get married things are going to end up incredibly difficult in the way of work visas and whatnot.
I am incredibly excited as we’ve been together for several years as well as sharing an apartment and this was a step we’ve been ready to take for a while now, just haven’t had the time with being in college. But now is the time.
And I’m freaking out! There are so many things to be done and we’re on a limited budget but trying to be creative and fun at the same time. We’re thinking enchanted forest/oktoberfest (fh is German). It will be at my grandparents cabin which is beautiful but a little limited on space. Narrowing down the guest list is taxing and with such a huge family I’m afraid I’ll end up leaving people out. Deciding on diy invites or ordering them. Not to mention trying to decide “tent or no tent” whether we should get a caterer or try to make all the food ourselves–it’s really overwhelming. I want to diy as much as I can to cut costs but at the same time, I only have 3 months!
If anyone else is in a bit of a time crunch for their October date, I would love some guidance!
