I still feel I am running circles in trying to start planning a wedding. Once I start thinking about something it leads to a new detail. And that new detail sparks a new thought and so on and so on.
Every person I talk to has a new set of questions about the wedding that I have not even though about and it makes me worry, since I have no idea what I am doing.
We compiled a list of invitees and mine is short compared to my fiance's 3 page list. Having something small is out of the question especially since our family's are large and they will all show. I seriously thought I had time to plan and ride the wave of engagement, but I have to get a move on the initial plans. Setting mini-goals for myself is the only way that will ease the stress and ensure that I don't have a breakdown.
My current goals are securing the locations for ceremony 1 and 2 and picking out the colors, which the fiancee and I established on Sunday. We also finally set a date since we were waiting on his brother's schedule from the Marines. Luckily, it works with the dates I had in mind.
This weekend a co-worker asked to take me to a Bridal Showcase in Houston and I hesitantly agreed. I doubt it will provide me any insight to what I really need, but the free cake wouldn't hurt.
P.S. I started looking at dresses, but only know what I don't want. This will be a tough one, so I am putting it off for a while.
Well, I am starting to freak out a little, because all the churches I have called for just general information are telling me that they are already booked through July 2011. I am worried now, because we are considering having the church ceremony in August. I guess I need to secure the date first and go from there. The fiancee (love that word) keeps telling me to not get stressed out and take things naturally, because it should be a happy moment for me. I am glad he is wanting to take part in the planning and that he can put things into perspective for me during this time. I have decided to make a list of things to do, rather than go by what all these books are telling me to do. Sigh...
I recently got engaged and have to say I am floating on a cloud right now. I know I am supposed to somewhat start planning, but I want to ride this feeling for a bit while trying to set a date. For now, we have chosen to have a family-only Catholic ceremony in my hometown and a big blowout in Las Vegas for all of our friends and family.
I bought some books today, because I have absolutely no clue how to start the process and now I feel a bit overwhelmed. I want simple, but elegant and need to find a direct path to this end result. I would enlist the help of my friends, but they are planning their own or just recently had a wedding. I don't want to be bothersome, but I honestly don't want to procrastinate.
I guess I can use my blog to go through this process and throw out ideas for our big day. Keep coming back because I will need your help!
I am sure you have seen this in the last couple of days. The girl who quit her job via erase board and called out her Farmville playing boss. Yeah, it's funny but I can't help but think of how much of this could be a hoax. It seems too "scripted", if I may say so myself.
The girl is very attractive, her poses and handwriting are almost too perfect and I am hesitant to believe this is real. I guess I'm questioning it all because of the industry I work in and the attention the website has received. If it is real, good for the girl who walked away from her loser boss in a way we all dream of quitting our jobs. If not, good job on whoever came up with this PR stunt.
It's been a crazy couple months for me. Work, home, and health are all taking up all my time. This year has been so crazy and lately I cannot shake how exhausted I feel. I need some R&R soon, but can't seem to fit it in. Every weekend we have something going on or something that needs to get done that I can't get to during the week. The boyfriend is planning a mini-vacation to Vegas soon to get my head straight and keep me sane. Which reminds me of the multiple bachelorette parties I must book as well in Sin City later this year (it never ends).
For now, I am looking forward to going to Austin this weekend to help my little cousin move into her college dorm. Maybe this will help ease some stress or give me a glimpse into what a vacation might feel like.
