Houston, We Have a Wedding Date!

Hey All!

Oh my goodness--what a whirlwind this week has been!  We've been kind of thinking about wedding planning, and we've discussed lots of options.  I think that any of you who know me already know--this sort of thing is just not my strong spot!

Need someone to refinish your hardwood floors?  Me.  Need someone to paint, strip, polish, literally anything you own? Me.  Need someone to bake you some alright chocolate chip cookies?  Me. Need someone to plan a huge event for you?....not me.  I just can't be bothered or trusted with things like balloons, and linens, and centerpieces.  It's not that I don't care, it's that I just really don't feel confident about making these kinds of decisions.  And who wants to devote so much time and energy to something they don't feel confident about?!

Well, the good news is, things have come together pretty quickly!  This week, we picked a wedding venue/date, and reception venue/date.  Plus food.  Plus colors.  And Saturday I'm going wedding dress shopping with the moms!  Boom.  I even reserved a block of hotel rooms for the reception.

But even as I write this, I'm starting to build a mental list of all of the things that still need to be done. Ugh.

  • Invitations (wedding / reception)
  • Photographer (engagement shots / wedding / reception)
  • DJ (reception)
  • Honeymoon
  • Make appointment for hair/makeup
  • Centerpieces (ugh)
  • Order Pies
  • Who knows what else! 

This is clearly going to take more than a week to plan....but we'll get there.  We have time!  I think my real concern is, what do I not even know that I'm not thinking about?  Only time will tell! For now, I'm going to go drop off my check to reserve the chapel.  That'll make me feel accomplished for the day!
