Anyway, as I was saying before I was rudely interrupted by life yesterday...
The wedding is officially less than four months away at this point. The four month mark makes me nervous for some reason, like in terms of getting shit done. Things are getting real. And that deadline is getting closer and closer.
We have the big stuff done, but it's all of that little stuff that makes me itchy. The weird stuff like programs, and ceremony music, and goody bags, and ... what else is there? I think about all of these little things late at night while I'm laying in bed and my mind is racing. And I tell myself to get up and write them down, but I never do.
Also the thing I keep wondering is how does it all come together? HOW? We don't have a wedding planner, so it's obviously up to us to do it. And we're fully capable of course (we're not the first people to plan a wedding, I get it) I'm just not a detail oriented person by any means. So that worries me.
And then the person playing devil's advocate in my head always like to whisper, just chill out! It's only one day. If everything doesn't go absolutely perfect it's okay. Life goes on.
But that little whisper is often shut out by every other thought in my head surrounding that one day and what I hope happens.
Ultimate goal: I want everyone to have a good time. That's it. I just want a really fun wedding weekend.
I don't need the "bride spotlight," that can go to Harlow. I'm not worried about perfection, I think the silly moments that just happen are often the best. All in all, I prefer comical over romantic.
We're writing our own vows and every time I've sat down to work on them it turns into a standup set. And I know, I know, not everything is a joke. This is a big life step and I should take it serious and blah blah blah, but standup is so much more fun. If I were a wedding guest I wouldn't want to sit and listen to how much the bride and groom love each other, they're getting married, they must like each other. I'd rather hear some one liners and some hot bits.
I feel like it will be instinct to grab the mic and start warming up the crowd, How's everybody doing? We having a good time? So what's the deal with mountains, anyway?
Just kidding. There's a time and a place. Apparently.
So here's what's on my list for this week:
Order invites. (Are we behind? Or on time?)
Find Harlow a bow tie. This one brings me more joy than it should.
Solidify a videographer. After extensive searching I think we've found a good team that comes highly recommended out of Kansas City.
Figure out hair and makeup. I've found a hairstyle that I can already tell I'll look back on in five years and be like WTF? But I don't care. I love it. Let's just say I've always been really into Christina Aguilera in Lady Marmalade. lols. Or I'll go for the vintage look. So it's either 1980s or 1920s....
Bridesmaid getting ready attire. Yay or nay? It's cute for pics, but ... but I haven't found the perfect thing that doesn't seem too weird, or too pricey. If you have suggestions let me know!
Lastly, HONEYMOON. I am so excited for a honeymoon. Chris and I need to lock this down asap before flights get super expensive.

And now is the time in the post when I tell you to buy all of your friends the MARRIED AF shirt because it's just fun. And guys love it (pic of Chris wearing his coming soon...) And of course the Honeymoon top for the honeymoon.
That is all. I'm off to order my wedding invites and pick up my wedding dress for the second time.
