- Wedding: October 2014 - Grandma's Oak Tree
I’ve found myself fairly calm and levelheaded throughout the planning process this far. I’m not really excited to be honest. I’ve been with my fiance for 4 1/2 years and I’m happy, and I’m content and my heart is absolutely full. We live like we’re married and we act like we’re married. So basically, this big production in October is for the official piece of paper and for my parents. As an only child, I’m sure my parents would burst into flames if they didn’t get to see me get married. Haha. I am getting kind of nervous about the actual production of the wedding. I think I have everything under control. I am under no delusions that my wedding will be perfect. Secretly, I’m hoping there is some minor little mishap to make the day interesting, something to look back on and laugh at. To me, perfect is BORING! I’m not sure where the nervousness is coming from. The only thing I can think of that might be making me feel a little nervous is that maybe I’m forgetting something.
So far, I have my dress, ordering bridesmaid dresses this weekend, the venue is set, the officiant is set, the menu has been finalized, I’ve gotten gifts for the wedding party, but I haven’t decided on gifts for parents and grandparents. The photographer has been booked as well as the dj, cake baker, and florist. We’ve decided on suits for the groomen, but havent been fitted or anything. Honeymoon details have been planned. I’m looking for jewelry but have not decided on anything yet. The hair and makeup situation is settled. The chair and tables have been rented.
I’m sure that’s not all but the rest is escaping me. I feel like I am seriously on top of it (all without being bratty) but since realizing there was only six months left, I feel a really strange emotion that I can’t describe.
Is there anybody else out there maybe feeling like this?
