We were perfectly happy before we decided to live happily ever after
Wow, I can’t believe it’s been 2 months since I last wrote about the wedding.
Well, the big stuff was done, the budget set and broken down, the venues booked, my dress bought, well it was time to relax* and just enjoy being engaged for a while. In reality I had to stop panicking over the details, reading wedding blogs and changing my mind over and over again and driving B up the wall. I probably still am.
I had to stop this from happening.
At least I have this blog to express my wedding-crazy huh?
Btw If you had asked B a few weeks ago how the wedding was going, he’d have said, it’s going well, we are nearly done. Now he knows different, we aren’t nearly. Not by a long way. Poor B, he now has to learn to love THE ALL THE DETAILS IN THE WORLD LIST as well as me.
Despite THE LIST, B and I have finally agreed on the big picture (as, as any good planner knows you have to have a big picture before you can break it down into the details) and despite the fact when I last wrote about this I was swinging towards the traditional, we have both decided that we want our day to be as anti-wedding-wedding as possible.
Sticking to this however, is very hard – people have expectations of what a wedding is, who should be there, and how much you have to spend and what you can’t leave ou.
(nothing, no one)
What we both are fighting for is a small, intimate, beautiful and historic venue with the food we like, the cocktails we drink and our closest family and best friends there to watch us get hitched…and then we want everyone to get drunk.
It is important to us that whilst our wedding wont a pie, a pint and a pub job (I wish) nor will our wedding beheld in some castle or function suite in the middle of nowhere with no connection to us. Is that really to much to ask?
Sometimes I worry if it is. How do you fight for your ideals without upsetting anyone or end up fighting each other?
