- Wedding: June 2010
68 days to go. Yikes!
I’m 21 and have only been to one wedding, so I am pretty much just ‘winging it. I have unenthusiastic friends. All my family lives 12 hours away and my fiance is the opposite of helpful. Budget: $3,000. Shoot me.
The location I picked has room for both ceremony and reception. Ceremony on a hill overlooking the mountains and valleys, and down a path a lodge for the reception. I booked it for 11am to 4pm.
I thought I could come by my venue the day before to set up some things. I double checked just recently with them and guess what? It’s not included in my fee!!!! So how does this work? Do I just come really really early and set up then get ready in the bathroom? Cuz my hotel is 40 mins away and I’m not driving to and from just to get my hair curled. And I can’t just send my Grandpa to set up tables and put up decorations – I have to do it. Why? Cuz I’m a control freak. Also, everything has to be taken down, put away, and cleaned up by 5pm. Is this going to be possible? Should I have my grand exit (in a ’94 Dodge Spirit uuugh, wish I had money for a limousine) and leave my family to clean it all up in an hour? Is that selfish? Should I stick around and clean too? Cuz I don’t have a caterer to do it for me.
I want my day to be peaceful and happy. But looking at it now, I’m feeling like I’m going to be a frizzled mess!
Also, may I add, that my maid of honor (the only one in my wedding party) still has no dress!!!! All I ask is that she gets a purple one. Doesn’t matter what shade, what style, don’t care. Just pick one for christ’s sake! That’s all she has to do really. Get a dress and stand there. (We’re not best friends, but she’s the closest friend I have so…eh, gotta have someone)
Ok, I’m done now. *sigh*
