Wedding planning!

Thursday, August 8, 2013

So far I have completely enjoyed wedding planning. I might change my mind in 4 months, but so far I haven't experienced the "so stressed out I'm just ready for it to be over" phase. And I hope I never feel like that, because I want this experience to be memorable and enjoyable. The only 2 things that haven't gone exactly as hoped are that we wanted to get married right before Christmas as opposed to right after. Because I am in school full-time, we had to have the wedding over my Christmas break, so it was either December 21 or 28. The church was already booked for the 21 but the 28 actually turns out better... we get to go on our Honeymoon over NYE... what could possibly be better?! Also, the hair/make-up girl I was dreaming of having was booked already :( tear. Anyways, One of my old friends is getting married and I saw this long check list on her page, and wanted to copy!
