Who am I kidding, the madness has started.
I went to a wedding show today to get ideas. I’m about eight months away and in about two months or so I’ll have to get serious on “save the dates,” wedding dress shopping and all the other stuff that weddings entail.
Weddings are so much work.
I always said I was fine with eloping and having a huge party. Then before you know it, you have a venue booked, a photographer and someone making your cake.
Throwing a great party sounds amazing, but it’s really starting to hit me how big this is. I see how it makes people go nuts, so I’m going to do my best to stay grounded.
I did get a few really great ideas today though. In terms of cakes I’m strongly leaning toward a square. Maybe a little mismatched. Red is the color we chose, and gerber daisies for the flowers. So maybe we could toss a few on the cake. Couple red accents, simple.
I’m learning these little things are so significant. All of these little things really add up. Lately I’ve been stressing on the music. If I’m going to be bridezilla-ey on anything, it’s the music. I don’t want anything old or cheesy. I was fine with downloading it all myself and playing it on a Mac, however, I’m starting to think about that realistically and not sure how it will work. Just because the music will have a couple seconds in between each song, we’d have to plan out playlists ahead of time. Then with all the events that go on, you really need someone to help guide things few. I’m starting to think I need to find a DJ. One that I can trust to not pay cheesetastic music.
Sometime in the next couple months I’ll need to go dress shopping. I’m not picky at all, well to an extent. As long as it’s pretty and fits my body type, it works for me. I might be a frugal bride-to-be and get a $100 off the rack dress.
It’s just for a day, I don’t want to put myself in the hole anymore than I already am for something I’m only going to wear once. That applies to my friends and maid of honor as well. I hope they’re able to find things they could possibly wear again. Well, not sure about my maid of honor, but maybe I can get something that she can have altered into a cocktail dress for later.
Well if I got anything today, it was great cake samples and free champagne. I’m not sure what type of cake we’ll have. I think we’re leaning toward red velvet with a cream cheese icing. I also really love an almond vanilla flavor with a butter cream icing too.
So many decisions…
