- Wedding: October 2010
So after being an avid reader of the great blogs out there, I decided I had so many thoughts, questions, and concerns that I wanted to express that I ought to start my own. Not sure where to start but im here and Im going to get it all figured out, and hopefully with the help of some of you experts out there.
So about me… i had been dating my husband, yes we are already married – i’ll get to that – for about 4 years. We broke up for a few months in 2009 and then he realized that he just couldn’t live without me. Having two older children, 13 and 9, and trying to set a good example for them, we have never lived together. After alot marriage counseling and alot of discussions, we decided to marry at our church on Valentines day, 2010. We invited our immediate family and friends, and the rest had just heard about our engagement that had happened previously. So I haven’t changed my name officially, b/c I have always wanted the big wedding. My first marriage when i was 19 was not even close, it was just the two of us in Las Vegas. So this is essentially my first marriage 🙂
So we have picked the date of October 17, 2010. Initially it was to be exactly 6 months from our ‘wedding date’ in February but since it so close just didn’t work out. So im down to planning a full wedding on a tight budget in about 6 months. I have full faith I’ll pull it off and it’ll be fabulous.
So my biggest dillema right now is knowing who to pick for my bridesmaids…. seriously i need some help. My 13 yr old daughter is going to be my Jr Maid/Matron of Honor, then there are the two sisters of the Mr, my sister, and two of my BFFs. So what is the dillema with that you ask?? I have a big group of BFFs that have been my backbone and support through the years. But if i ask them all, i’d end up with 11 total. Is that too many? I just dont want to hurt their feelings by not picking them. They have been involved in everything and every event that has been big in my life for years.
I thought about trying to have some kind of honorary Bridesmaid… is that even heard of??
Please let me know if you have ideas, or comments, or anything. I just dont’ know what to do, and I know I need to get it figured out asap!
