  • Wedding: September 2009

I have had some days where I couldn’t wait for the wedding to be over with so we could do more things. But financially you have to make some sacrifices to pay for a wedding. We got lucky and my parents rented a cottage for a week in August, so we get to go up there for free. But you should pick a weekend that you have nothing planned and go on a camping trip. If you budget it right, it wouldn’t be too costly. Or why don’t you call your friend and see if they would do a kayaking trip another weekend?

I hope I helped

Could you maybe just take a day for the two of you and go somewhere close by? I don’t know if you like vineyard tours but there are a bunch right outside of Seattle. I went to Chateau Ste Michele with my friend from Seattle last year and it was SO relaxing and fun. Maybe you don’t have to do anything big or costly but just take a day and relax together and do something out of the ordinary – with NO wedding talk allowed!

Oh my gosh, we’re in this same kind of pickle (except I’m the one that keeps saying to our friends that we can’t do anything fun because of the wedding, haha).  We go on a LOT of camping and canoe trips in the summer, Minnesota is so awesome for it, but this year it’s been cut way way down because of different weekends being taken up for showers, other people’s weddings, projects we need to get done, and trying desperately to save all the vacation time we can to use for our honeymoon.

The most heartbreaking is that for the past couple years we’ve had an annual canoe trip in the Boundary Waters and this year it’s literally only 3 days long because we can’t manage to do more.  

To keep us both sane during the process, we’ve got big plans in the works to spend a month canoeing the BWCA next summer and a few other big trips.  It’s definitely sad to be missing out on things we’d usually do in the summer, but we just keep reminding each other it’s just this one year.  We’ll look back on 2009 as a really boring summer, but we’ve got good ones ahead for the rest of our lives!
