I had so many people give me the “advice” to elope….and I’m so glad I didn’t listen!  My wedding (s) were only 2 weeks ago, and I haven’t even gotten the pro pics back, but I don’t regret any of it. AT ALL.

Part of that is because my husband (yay! Love that word) and I pretty much paid for everything ourselves and had total control.  Part of it is because we’re older and didn’t have to make choices about having a wedding vs. something else like owning a house (I already owned one before we even met) and husband has enough cash in the bank to buy my house outright.  Some of it is because we have the most amazing families and friends of all time.  We had hardly any drama at all in the whole wedding planning process, both of our families helped us set up and tear down, I did a lot of DIY but really enjoyed the process and didn’t resent the fact that I did the DIY projects.  Our friends were so amazing and gracious, didn’t give us a moment’s trouble and really just made our whole wedding a joy.

Honestly, if I could do it all again this year….I would.  Sorry if that makes me crazy!  Engagement was a pretty magical time for me.  Wedding stuff got a little stressfull when we also moved cross-country and started new jobs, while our wedding was still in our previous state, but I’m pretty focused and good about making things happen, and DH is even MORE focused and a get-it-done kind of person, so in the end…

it was all bliss.  Now, does Husband sometimes tease me that we both could have had brand new BMWs for what we spent?   hmmmm….yes.  But in the long run, it was so worth it to honor both of our cultures.
