It’s been over 3 years since @Yawnofthedad proposed to me on top of Table Mountain although it seems much much longer! In a good way Since then we’ve been waiting and waiting for the right time… a time when 5k plus falls into our laps. Well let me tell you… it doesn’t happen!!
Just over a week ago we were sat at home talking about getting married as we often do… it usually ends with a punchline but this time it was different. We realised that should we ever come into some money we wouldn’t want to blow it all on a wedding, we’d want a deposit for a new house with a garden or a big family holiday or a ruddy good Christmas. It was all so clear. All we really wanted to do is get married and share the day with our family, regardless of what we could afford.
So… we booked it. It’s booked. ALL BOOKED.
In 39 days….
5 weeks on Friday.
August 30th 2013
I can honestly say I’ve never been so terrified/stressed/happy/excited in all my life. But this past week I have amazed even myself. This is what I have achieved in 1 week after 3 years of waiting…
1. Ceremony Booked
2. Evening Venue booked
3. Dress purchased
4. Hair/Makeup booked
5. Photographers booked
6. Wedding cake being made (by the best cake maker in the world)
7. Colour scheme chosen
8. Invites ready to post
I am pretty much sorted for all the major things and I have a fantastic team of family and friends helping me out. I’m even having a decoration making party which I’m sure is going to be loads of fun! Best of all…it’s all for less than a fraction of what I thought a wedding could cost.
I really couldn’t be happier.
In 39 days I get to finally marry my man, my best friend… the person who puts up with my little whinges and makes me smile when I’m feeling sad… my Squish’s daddy. I know the next few weeks are going to be highly stressful but I won’t stop grinning. I’m powering through shooting down each item on my to-do list because it’s getting me that much closer to the day.
I won’t tell you too much about the wedding yet but I can tell you I’m having a vintage theme on less than 1.5k. It can be done!! So, watch this space.
I will be blogging!!!
*sticks pins in eyes*
PS If you have any great vintage style dec ideas (or even none vintage) please please do comment with a link!!
