Can we talk about the Bachelor first?
I mean I know I’m 2 days late but I just watched it last night and want to go on record that I thought it was pretty obvious that Lauren B was gonna win from the start. Also I think I’m the only person who isn’t stoked for JoJo to be the Bachelorette. Andi 2.0 anyone?
But who cares what I think. I hardly ever watch the Bachelorette anyway. Call me sexist…..Well actually don’t….
But on to more exciting news!
We have officially booked our wedding venue……
I am officially getting married…..
This just got infinitely more real……..
P.S. if you read my post yesterday you know that putting your hand in a picture instantly makes you successful. Or something like that….
Anyway, did anyone else freak out slightly after paying that deposit on their venue?
It can’t just be me. As someone who doesn’t spend money unless it’s life-threatening or absolutely necessary (yarn doesn’t count!), the actual act of paying a few thousand for a venue can really mess with your head. Well the deposit obviously wasn’t a few thousand but still.
I haven’t even thrown down for a new phone upgrade in three years so you know I’m not lying about my tight fists!
But, it’s done. We have our venue which means we have our date. What’s even the etiquette on disclosing your wedding date? Am I supposed to wait until I send out save the dates? Can I tell everyone before that?
Speaking of save the dates, do you send those to people that won’t be getting an invitation?
Wedding stuff is hard….
Back on topic though. Our venue. Technically you could say we’re having a destination wedding. It’ll be in North Carolina and in case you didn’t know I currently reside in Massachusetts. Why did I decide to have our wedding over 800 miles from where we live you ask? Good question, glad you asked.
It goes a little something like this.
One summer in 2011, a boy and girl met in the mountains of NC. Said boy and girl fell in love with each other and said mountains. Boy and girl get engaged and get frustrated with all the $$$ wedding venues in New England. Frustrated boy and girl start talking about eloping. Boy suggests a small wedding with only family and close friends in the very mountains they fell in love in. Girl is super impressed with boy’s level of insight put into wedding planning and loves him even more. The End.
Well not really the end because we haven’t actually gotten married yet. That’s still to come.
Now that we have a venue and date I can actually start looking into other vendors and whatnot. Doing it from afar will be interesting but that’ll be a post for another day.
What I’m excited about next is wedding dress shopping next month with my Mom and Bridesmaids down in Charlotte! This weekend trip is much needed.
So look forward to many more wedding posts now that I actually have a wedding to plan for!
Did you have a destination wedding? Care to tell me I’m not the only one who freaked out at the cost of things?
