- Wedding: June 2011
I just got engaged on 2/5… and a couple of weeks after that somehow ended up in the vacuum of thought that a nice, close, June 25 wedding seemed like a good idea.
To give a little background – I have been a wedding coordinator for years and have successfully planned hundreds of weddings (including my first one in 2003) and do have the benefit of spending some time at work very much justifiably planning my own details… especially due to budget and time, we elected to book where I work.
But, here’s the thing…
THAT’S ONLY 16 WEEKS AWAY! OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG!!!!
Phew. So yeah… turns out, I’m just as much of a regular bride as everyone else, just with a really, really big idea bank but a really small normal budget 😉
We have save the dates going out Tuesday (assuming they come in Monday), our invite list is locked in, lined up my photographer (yay! former client!) (YAY discount!), my entertainment (yay! local wedding vendor!) (YAY! discount!) and have ideas as to what the men will wear but haven’t shopped for yet.
Things I’m tweaking about in my mind are the fact that I need to find a dress like yesterday, settle on some decor and stop coming up with cool DIY ideas to try, create our ceremony, find some orange shoes that are the ‘right’ orange and generally just realize that I *KNOW* I’m being overly spazzy about this and I should take my own advice.
Just needed to explode momentarily! Thank you for indulging me!
What ‘big’ things do you have left?
