All I have is a groom and a dress. Does anyone smell a destination wedding with just the family?? I think...
Anyhow, before I sink into my deep depression before 9 am again, I'll just give a brief update... My dream venue is taken. The annoying lady was rude enough to let me visit, fall in love, think about it non-stop, just to tell me none of my dates are available. THANKS FOR NOTHING, MEANIE!
We have 2 venues to visit this week... Next weekend we're attending my friend Lori's wedding so that will take up an entire wedding planning weekend, but instead of freaking out, I'm attempting to view it as a much needed mental vaca... and I can TOTALLY be on "clean up crew", Lori... aka scoop up whatever you need to while you go off on the honeymoon! :)
The venues we're going to see are Ordy's favorites... they're back to the barn... as overwhelmed as I've been with barn weddings, it's our only choice now with my venue being taken and not wanting a fancy hotel wedding WE wouldn't even feel comfortable at. Sorry if I've gone back and forth- beggars can't be choosers! It's not that I'm settling, but yes, I really wanted the other venue! But, I must move on. With 157 days left, I need to pick a place so I can start invitations, etc.
I have a paper due every Thursday in October, a random final exam next Friday, and the MPRE on Nov 5th. I can't even take it... I need to get a venue just so when I go to type my paper I don't find myself googling venues!
Enough about my rough schedule. On to things that make me smile and think, "will this day ever come?!" More blush and gold inspiration...
|great bridal shower look!!! Hint hint sher|
|my dream dress. i'd wear it the entire week of. rehearsal. bed. anywhere.|
|love rifle paper for inspiration for invites|
|another great shower idea :)|
Anyway, I promise, once I finish being a student/wedding planner, I'll come back to being a better blogger. Thanks for hanging in there for the 4 readers I may have left! Any ideas are appreciated!
One thing my dad shared:
"There are people with $100,000 weddings, and people with $10,000... and every person regrets SOMETHING about their wedding and wishes they could do SOMETHING differently. You'll never please EVERYONE, everyone has different taste- what you think is trendy, someone traditional will think it's the tackiest thing ever... but don't ever forget an elaborate wedding doesn't make her marriage any better than the girl with the simple one. It's about the marriage, not the wedding. You have the best groom waiting for you at the end of the aisle and that's all that matters. "
Amen. Gotta love dad's lectures/pearls of wisdom :)
