hi friends! well, wednesdays are now designated as a new hello wedding column, but unfortunately i am just so busy i couldn't put anything together for today, except for the graphic ;)
so i guess this will serve as an intro post to the new column.
i thought i'd share a little about the progress of our wedding and my heart about the whole thing. our wedding planning is coming a long VERY slowly. i mean, like turtle slow.
we went through about 4 venues: places falling through or venues that were dishonest about some things - it was a big let down each time. we finally decided on a park: simple and sweet. it is where nick and i went + ate innout after we hung out for the first time. it is a special park.
the date is decided, the photographer is decided, and we are renting furniture from sweet jeni who owns a really lovely shop that happens to be located 10 minutes from the park. (what luck!)
so we just need to figure out food: there is no electricity at the park. i need to design our invites. (i think we are skipping save the dates to save money) get our website up, and work on all the decor.
i honestly don't know what it is or why i am putting things off. maybe all the hype of a wedding or what it's supposed to be, has turned me anti-planning anything. we dont want to spend a lot of money on the whole thing, nick and i want to save our money instead. we are just excited about being married, and not so much the wedding. i am a natural procrastinator and i work well under stress - but i know i will go crazy if i put all these things off to the last minute. i think another thing is that i am not trusting or praying.
so that's it. i didn't think this would be so hard for me, it's all really overwhelming you know? thanks so much for reading my random ramblings... any advice/tips/encouraging words are definitely appreciated: from anyone who has gone through it, or anyone who has seen a friend go through it. :)
