- Wedding: October 2012
My dear best friend and Maid/Matron of Honor has already made me feel a little better, but I’m hoping a short post into the virtual world might help me from still feeling sad.
The venue is booked for the day I want.
Now let me back up a little. FH and went to a few venues and were hoping to decide and put a deposit down by the end of January. I am in the military and always have deployments hanging over my head. We ended up waiting until we got some news about the deployment schedule, and I finally got the nerve to just book when WE wanted, and worry about the rest later (all the venues said they would work around a reschedule if necessary). Our date? Since we couldn’t go with the day we met, November 14th (it’s a Wednesday) we decided on November 11th, Veteran’s Day. I come from a military family (Dad, two brothers and sis’s husband, all military careerists), and it became significant for me. I’m traditional and simple, and didn’t really want a “theme,” but the colors have ended up basically being red, ivory and blue, and I decided for something cute to throw in a patriotic cake/cupcakes.
I know, I know, I KNOW that the date doesn’t matter, that we can have our celebration any day and it’s still special because of us, and that I can’t control it, so why be bothered? I suppose I just feel like mourning it! Did anyone else have to have a little mourning period when something didn’t turn out the way you wanted/expected?
