My wedding is coming up in less than 1 week…4 more days to be exact. Lots of people have been asking if I’m excited about it, but I can only say to them that I am nervous. Of course I’m excited bout getting married, but I’m still quite worried that everything will come together smoothly. There are those types of worries like: “Will the vendors arrive on time?”, “Will the decorator finish putting everything together before the guests arrive?”, “Will our new officiator (a.k.a. my brother) know what to say during our vow ceremony?”
I am the worry-wort type, & I couldn’t help but think these thoughts before the wedding. I just want everything to go smoothly & without a hitch in sight. Am I nervous about getting married? HELL NO! I filed my marriage certificate/license with my fiancé back in September 2011, & we have already been living together in our new apartment for 3 months. Even before we filed our marriage license, we have already felt like a married couple. We even act like an old married couple. Every aspect about being a married couple naturally falls into place, & we are so in sync with each other. There has been a nearly flawless transition into the married life that we don’t even notice on the surface.
Our upcoming wedding ceremony is a formal affirmation, which we would like to share this significant moment in our lives with our friends & family. We have etched into our hearts that we are as one, a married set, & we would like to announce to our esteemed friends & beloved family that we are married now & forever.
I am so excited to be getting married next May…but who knew planning a wedding would be so difficult?! I wish I could wave a magic wand & everything would be picked-out & booked/reserved, & all I have to do is sign on the dotted line at the end of the day.
Seriously, it’s so hard to pick out a bridal dress (especially when you’re typically not the dress-wearing type)! When people ask me what’s my “theme” for the wedding…I never know what to tell them. I just say that my wedding is in May, so it’s going to have a general “spring” type of theme.
Thank goodness I don’t have to bother with bridesmaids & extra groomsmen. That means less dresses & suits to pick & fuss over, but that also means getting strange stares from others when you tell them that you are opting out of having bridesmaids in your wedding party. It’s not a typical thing to do, but it’s saving us money in the end…& I cannot handle girl fights when it comes to picking dresses.
What’s worse, is having to pick & decide everything with a fiancee who is hell bent on sticking to a rigid budget even though we have the means to have a more relaxed budget. I know it is more practical to stick to a certain budget so you don’t completely bankrupt yourself…but it’s also a little frustrating when you’re trying to fit all of your “must haves” into your wedding planning to-do list & you know you’re going to slightly go over your budget…& you are still hell bent on sticking to that God damn budget number!!!
I wish I could just leave everything for my fiancee to decide….which he’s doing that to me right now. We’ll both come up with 2 or 3 choices, & he’ll make me do all the deciding in the end. Well, we’ll see how this turns out in May!!
