Anyone else having the "out of hand" syndrome?
For example, I thought I’d buy a dress out of jcrew, something around $200. I thought he’d wear something pretty casual and that it’d just be us and a celebrant oh, and my bouquet, 20 minutes and then off to dinner or something.
But in the planning we are discovering a whole new us and that we really are planning on making this day a little more formal and special for us.
My dress is not Jcrew, but rather Maggie Sottero. He is wearing his Tux (which i didn’t know he owned!-we don’t live together and he is working in the middle east, I am not allowed in his home).
We found a great old church in the bush of Australia. We have put in a request for photographer (who is amazing) and for bagpipes. We will have the flowers. We will also have diner and wine at sunset on the beach.
I never dreamed this, but the way it is coming together is amazing. And still totally within budget, which is easy when we didn’t set one. But since we aren’t having a bridal party and receptions will be on hold until December.
However, i think I have covered all the bases. But where does it start to get out of hand?
It’s like the one last thing that would complete this "dream" is to have strangers dining at the venue that can receive the bouquet, garter and enjoy cake with us. I know, totally random that we’d share such an event with strangers, but it goes with our personalities.
how do you draw the line? surely budge is one, but what about too many variables to control from afar and what is too many?
