  • Wedding: March 2013

How many days do you have left?: 20

Pic of your dress:


I switched just a couple weeks ago and I’m glad I did.

how many people are you inviting?: We invited 16 people; 8 are coming, not counting us and our daughter. We’re obviously having a tiny wedding.

when are you sending out invites?: We sent save the dates just to let people know the date and location (it’s a destination wedding for everyone but my partner), but haven’t sent invites. Since it’s only family and they all know the plans, we’re just printing out nice looking cards with the relevant times and locations to give to everyone in their welcome bags.

what is your beauty/workout routine looking like?:  I don’t typically work out and I haven’t bothered to for the wedding; beauty-wise, just trying to get my skin to behave and to get my hair to stop looking like a damn mop.

what will your guestbook be?: N/A

what is your next wedding related appointment?:  Not a single meeting to be had, thank goodness. We still have to finalize a few details but all through email.

what is the next wedding-related thing you have to buy?: I think all the buying is done, except a new tie for my partner. And things for welcome bags, but I’ll do that once I get into town just before our families arrive. Flowers for a bouquet too I guess, if my mom has her way.

who is your wedding officiant?: A random woman I found online who was in our price range and very responsive to our requests.

what do your wedding bands look like?: Plain traditional bands. 

where will you be getting ready?: In our house together.

what time does your ceremony start?: 3:30pm

where are you registered? Nowhere at all.

what are you most looking forward to about your wedding day?: Just finally being married and not to have to ever plan a wedding again. We’re crazy about each other but not wedding people at all, and we compromised a lot by not just running off and doing it alone. We’re both realy looking forward to moving forward with the life we’ve already started together.
