So much on my mind lately!
Since we’re planning on getting married in August, I have a giant list of things to take care of. So far the only thing that is checked off is photographer, as my best friend went to photography school and will be doing it for me.
My fiance doesn’t even want a wedding (he’d rather elope) so I’m trying to cut every single corner possible to make this as cheap and low key as possible. The venue is going to be the biggest expense as I simply don’t want to get married in some rented room at a restaurant or rec center. We’re looking at a chapel this weekend.
The dress will probably be the second biggest expense, but I’m going to try to go as cheap as possible. I’m only going to wear it once anyway, buying a dress for over $1000 that you’ll only wear once is ridiculous. I’m making an appointment to buy one next week.
The guest list is limited to basically family only, plus a couple of friends. It’ll be about 30 people, tops, and all of my family probably won’t show up anyway.
We’re going to DIY the food and cake and I’m going to attempt to do flowers myself. Once upon a time I wanted to go to floral design school. Decor will also be very DIY and probably mostly from craft and dollar stores. I’ll be doing the invitations myself and we’re going to put together a music playlist instead of hiring a DJ.
Wow this seems like a lot as I write it all out.
I don’t think my fiance wants to register for gifts, but I definitely think it’s a good idea, or we’ll end up with a bunch of random stuff we don’t need. I’m trying to go minimalist as much as possible, no thanks.
I guess all that’s left is the actual ceremony stuff like hiring an officiant, getting the marriage license, buying rings, and figuring out my hair and makeup. I have no idea how I’m going to do most of this basically alone in four months.
Oh plus I’ll probably be getting my wisdom teeth out by next month, so that’s going to be fun to deal with on top of everything else… I’m a little bit frazzled to say the least. Now off to have my wisdom teeth consultation, fun!
