I am making a list and checking it twice…
NO I am not making a Christmas List, I am starting our wedding guest list. The movies make wedding planning look like such a breeze, but it’s not, it’s really not. If I had the choice, I would get married at the court and save the money we’re about to spend on a trip, but hey that’s just me.
Bryan on the other hand, thinks it is very “hillbilly” to do such a thing.
June 10th marks our second year of engagement and I’m happy about that, I have Bryan and he gave me a beautiful ring whilst professing his undying love and devotion. I don’t care anymore, I’m marrying him regardless, whether it is behind the dumpsters where he casually fell in love with me or on Catalina Island where he proposed, it doesn’t matter. My parents were married through the court and have been together forever, having a fancy schmancy ceremony means nothing but wasted money.
I am not against marriage if that’s what you’re thinking, what I believe is marriage means more then a wedding ceremony, Bryan and I getting married means more then me taking his name and having his children, it means commitment, devotion and above all LOVE. That’s what people forget sometimes when they’re planning their weddings, it’s about the love you have for one another and everything else just blends in the background.
I’m getting carried away, have I mentioned how hard this is?! At least we have a date in mind…October 13, 2017! It’s Friday the thirteenth and Bryan and I both love that creepy shit, plus if people can’t take the time off to go to the wedding it’s nicer for us J
We do not have a venue, I don’t have a dress, we have no caterers or djs lined up. Like I’ve said I am not too keen on paying a large sum of money for just one day and one experience, but if I have to it better look exactly how I envision it. Originally we wanted to rent out a huge estate where we can hold both the ceremony and reception, having no limits to caterers or bartenders, but it’s been really difficult. I want to be able to have our fur babies, Kodiak and Dakota to be part of this moment! They have to, it’ll be a really big factor to our decision making when it comes down to venue location.
Wedding planning is just an overall pain the ass.
Save yourself from the drama and fights, get eloped.
