Wow, how is it Saturday already? Time is flying, people. Flying.
Chris and I went to a wedding this morning for a girl that we work with. It feels very different … attending a wedding after you’re engaged. Before, every time I was at a wedding, I thought “Oh it would be fun to do this someday. Someday far in the future.” Today, as the wedding started, it was like “This will be US in a few weeks. Holy crap.”
We both got a little nervous for a while. 🙂
Plans are coming along. The biggest question mark right now is the catering. We’re trying to pick a caterer and choose what kind of food we’re going to provide. This may not seem like a big decision, but believe me … it is. Both Chris and I really like to eat and want to have creative, high class food, but this gets very pricey very quickly. It’s a challenge to balance quality and presentation and stick to our budget.
Another thing I’m finding challenging is choosing bridesmaid dresses. I’ve heard the jokes about horrendous bridesmaid dresses, but now I kind of understand why it happens. Really, how does one go about finding a dress that works for four completely different body types? On top of that, the bridesmaids are in three different states so it would be best if I find them at a store found in all three states. On top of THAT, I don’t want strapless, which for some reason is the trend in bridesmaid dresses and so non-strapless choices are severely limited.
That’s all I’ve got to update you on right now. You’d think with the infrequent posts I’d have more to share, but really, I’m not even sure you want to hear all this stuff.
Ah well. If a blog is truly an online journal I should write about whatever is on my mind, right? And right now, we all know what’s on my mind these days.
