- Wedding: August 2010
Hello everyone! I’m new to wedding forums, but as I was reading some of the posts here, I really wished I had joined a LOT sooner. You all seem so nice. (:
Well, my amazing boyfriend became my amazing fiance on July 4th last year…and we are currently 5 weeks out from the wedding. I never dreamed the time would go so fast!
I had been terrified about the wedding planning. Absolutely terrified. I am not crafty, I am not creative, and i had no idea how to pull off a classy, beautiful wedding (budget has us doing a lot of DIY things). Since my mother walked out on us 10 years ago, I was REALLY having a hard time pulling everything together. Thankfully, FI’s mother stepped in and I’ve been worry free ever since. She is AMAZINGLY crafty and organized and keeps me right on track. Well, she’s an amazing woman, period…luckilly, my FI’s whole family is. Yesterday we finished my bouquet. It turned out beautiful!
We’ve had some issues though. Typical ‘stuff that usually goes wrong.’ We lost a caterer two weeks ago…but had kept the card of another one from a bridal show as a backup and booked her instead. Then, a week later, we had a groomsman back out. FI took care of that, but I was sure sweating over that!
So here we are now, 5 weeks out and pretty well put together, minor details excused. I have my dress, my viel, my tiara, my shoes. I go for my final fitting on July 12th. It’s finally seeming so real! (It really didn’t even seem real until the RSVP cards started coming in…I know, I know, I’m wierd.)
Well, that’s my little into…it’s early yet here…so it proobably could be a lot better. I look forward to being a part of the community!
