I might as well get this out of the way fairly early on. Most of my free time (which is severely limited) these days is spent thinking about weddings*. After nearly 5 years together, we are engaged and planning a wedding. Because of my current status as a part-time grad student, full-time employee, part-time employee, and all around busy bee, we’ve had a longer-than-average engagement. We got engaged in March 2012 (nearly 2 years ago already!?!), and are getting married September 20, 2014. I’ve always wanted to get married in the fall. Fall is my favorite season – the weather, the smell, the colors, the pumpkin-flavored-everything (not gonna lie, I just baked some pumpkin cookies), cozy sweaters, comfortable slippers and warm blankets! I’ve always liked the idea of getting married in the fall, and anticipated incorporating my favorite flower into the wedding. I have loved tiger lilies since I was in high school, and dreamed of having tiger lilies and orange dresses in my wedding. As the wedding draws nearer, many of those dream ideas have gone by the wayside, as so many are wont to do. If you’re interested, stay tuned to find out how things change when life gets in the way!
* Many of my future posts will probably focus more on wedding details, because I don’t want to bore my fiance, friends & family with the minutiae, but need a place to vent. Hopefully doing this will help me sort through my thoughts and even keep track of details over such a long planning period. I also want to use this as a place to display my trials (and errors) on all the little things that I intend to DIY for the wedding, without posting it all to my facebook. 🙂
