It’s quiet here

1893 wedding

As I suck on a cough drop (I have a sinus infection…URGGHHH!!!), I have been researching DIY ideas for the wedding. While looking up a few things I began thinking that I might be slightly obsessed with all of this wedding stuff. Lately it is all that seems to come out of my mouth, “the wedding…the wedding…the wedding….” and I am getting tired of hearing about it, so I can imagine that others are too. Since I am sick I thought I’d take some time to sort through some things so that I could figure what is and isn’t really important to me, to David, and to us both. David wants our wedding to be a celebration, and as long as we get married, our family and close friends are there to share it, the food and music are good, he doesn’t really care. He says I’ll look beautiful, and at the end of the day as long as we’re married it will be a wonderful wedding.

I agree with him, 100 %, but there are a lot things that need to be planned, organized, etc. And it won’t get done if I don’t get on the ball. So I’m trying to wrap my head around some of the more important things. Like the invitations. I’ve been slowly but surely figuring out what I’m doing in regards to our wedding invitations. I’ve printed a few different one’s, trashed some ideas, loved others but knew it wasn’t the ONE, and this coming weekend we’ll be going to Michael’s to actually get the supplies for the invitations. I’m excited. But I know I’m not quite there in regard to the invitation so I’m doing the last bit of research and planning so I can put the invitation together and have it ready by next weekend. I am making them myself. Handmade invites. (Using my computer, printer, my own handwriting, sheet music, and decorations.)

I’m going to make me a bagel and some eggs, drink some more orange juice for the Vitamin C, and then look at some more inspiration. I need a break from the computer for a bit. Will be back later with some more inspiration pic’s.

    that feel of “always talking about weddings” is very normal – and your partner’s response sounds pretty normal too :-). When I was picking out a ton of details near the same time, I too felt like it was constant wedding-wedding-wedding. The good news is: you get through that phase! I had to resist the urge to criticize myself because I spent hours figuring out the “perfect” invitation/dress/etc. I think that (for me at least) that was just part of the process of my early engagement. (Nothing like an 18 month engagement to give you perspective on the first 12 months!)

      Our wedding is 4 months away. Not much time left, so I guess I’m feeling the pressure of not having everything planned out, bought, organized, etc. It’s nice to hear that I’m normal, and not BRIDEZILLA. 🙂 Thanks.
