- Wedding: June 2012
my wedding date was just a guess! But now we know it for sure. Whew!
I’ve been entering the date we were hoping for on everything that required a date (this site, local wedding expo, theknot.com, etc), but haven’t been able to confirm anything. For JUNE! I’ve been slowly approaching the complete freak-out stage. We’re planning for a Sunday evening wedding, so many of the vendors we want should still be available, but still…
My brother is serving in Afghanistan, and we’ve been waiting for the army to decide his deployment leave dates before we set a wedding date. Which was supposed to be certain long before the end of February, but then February came and and went and… nothing. And since I can’t imagine my brother not being there, I was beginning to wonder what we were going to do.
Finally, my brother was able to let us know his really-for-real leave dates this morning and the date we had hoped for will work, so we can start really planning now!
Just had to share!
(added note: Though all this, I’ve run into people occasionally who’ve said “Oh, it’s nice of you to plan around your brother. What if you don’t find out the dates in time to plan for summer? I guess you’ll just have to plan it without him.” And Fiance and I can’t help but ask: what is wrong with these people?)
