The venue has been chosen. The date has been booked. We’re officially getting married next year, 9/16/2011.
And now…a sigh of relief.
I was so stressed that when we would finally meet with the venue coordinator, our date would be taken. Or it wasn’t as beautiful as we imagined it to be. Or they didn’t offer what we were looking for. All these different “what ifs” scoured about in my head. But stress no more. The venue coordinator was lovely. The date we wanted hadn’t been booked yet. And the venue site was absolutely perfect. It was everything we imagined…and more.
It’s still so surreal to think that this is finally happening for me. I’m marrying the man I love in less than a year. I’ve been in so many weddings, and watched many of my friends walk down the isle,; but now it’s my turn. I’m the happiest I’ve ever been.
And now, the real planning begins. Before I was searching endlessly through magazines, finding colors, ideas, dresses…everything. Now, it’s all starting to happen. I was putting together a timeline, and realized that by the end of December, our wedding will only be 8 months away. I can’t even believe how fast this year is going to go by.
Next week I’m meeting with the girls who will be my bridesmaids. Of course, my ever so creative self, thought of a clever (but cute) way to ask each of them. Something special, for special ladies. I know that once I ask the girls, then all the fun starts! We’ll have to plan a date to try on the bridesmaids dresses; late nights of putting center pieces together and stuffing envelopes for invitations. All things I’m looking forward to.
I love all this talk about planning the wedding. I love booking meetings with the vendors. I love writing in my Bride Book.
I. Love. It. All
But most of all, I love the person that I will be sharing the rest of my life with.
