- Wedding: June 2011
My name is Casey, and I live in Delaware. My boyfriend (financee) lives in norristown, PA. I am still relatively new at my job, and I am hoping to transfer to his area to live with him before we tie the knot. If nothing else, I will leave my job and find one close to him. The only reason I think this works for us is because we previously lived together, and I lost my job so I had to move home (about a year ago).
We’ve been together 2 years (tomorrow – valentine’s day) and I work tomorrow, otherwise he would have waited until then to propose!
We are going to Vegas for a function towards the end of June & it was actually my mother’s idea to get married while we’re out there. We have decided this is a great idea (now – my mom thinks not so much – good idea) and we are now setting that up as date. There will only be a few people (I’m thinking 3-4) that will be there to watch the nups, due to being so far away.
However, I want to throw a great party for the celebration. I don’t think I want a huge one, but one large enough for friends and family to come. I have a big family, and he doesn’t. So the party is my main heart-tug considering everything with the Vegas wedding.
I was thinking about having the party a year after the ceremony as just kinda like a proper party – so it would give us enough time to plan, pay, etc.
Does that sound silly to anyone?
I absolutely love all the posts I’ve been reading, and now officially that I can be a part of a community so I don’t feel overwhelmed in this whole thing.
