- Wedding: May 2014
So today marks 72 days until May 30th woooo hoooo!!!!
Not only am I extremly excited.. We are having a HUGE change in plans! .. Originally FI & I were ELOPING (JUST US, THE KID, AND OFFICIANT.. MY DAD) .. As of today that has changed. We originally decided to elope because FI is in Med School, & I will be starting law school in August so we didnt have much time to spare & wanted to Marry before moving in together (July)…..but as of Monday we are having an “Intimate wedding”. My great grandfather who is near and dear to my heart, seriouslly like my bff has talked me into inviting close fam & friends which would mean about 35 people between the two of us..He offered to pay for everything so how could I turn that down..
FI & I prayed about it, and we are in agreement that this would probably cause less tension to just invite the ones closest to us.. & also free up the $ we intended to use for the wedding to go towards some new furniture when we move 🙂
We’re still doing it at the same place (an outside gazebo) we have to rent a few chairs but everything else will stay the same..
There’s a resturant that is literally 10 seconds walking distance to the gazebo and I talked with the Owner today & we came up with a tentative contract with it being about $40 per person (including food– it will be around lunch time, linen, & drinks)— Not shabby.
& our Mini Moon still stands..
The funny thing is we still havent disclosed any of our wedding plans to our families.. (Just my great grandpa) & wont until April 1st.. hahahah they are going to think its a joke (April fools) but were going to be like hey.. we’re getting married in 60 days.. be there or be left out! Simple.
I know this seems crazy.. but im uber excited! —
