The end of this work week ended on a much better note than last week! All is resolved at the office with our email issues and we actually also celebrated a birthday! In addition, the weather actually feels like spring here (although today is a dreary and chilly day). I really think I can pack away my winter coat (yippee!).
Wedding planning is coming along very well too! My husband and I set a date for church ceremony when he returns from Korea (woohoo!). His tour really threw us for a loop and honestly, I wanted to wait to get married till he got back. It would have been such short notice to arrange something with my church and to have everyone that’s important to us to make it. That’s the unfortunate thing about having family at over the place! I’m in NYC, my parents are in Texas, my husband was in upstate New York and his family is in Massachusetts. In addition, my grandparents are in Mississippi with an aunt and uncle…and so on and so on! My husband did want to get married legally before he left because it would give him peace of mind. We were already engaged, so it just seemed pretty natural to go to the courthouse.
For our church wedding, we’re inviting everyone that is close to us to witness our promise to one another. My husband and I are really not formal people, so our reception will definitely be relaxed and carefree!
We’re also on a very strict budget and I’ll be doing most of the organizing myself. I don’t mind it though because I don’t expect things to be perfect. My husband and I are far from it. I just want something that is simple and fitting to both of us – and to have the people that we love around us as we celebrate our marriage!
