We, two, are no good at wedding planning. Sad, but no less true.
Our “Celebration of Love” has been schedule as you know for September 17th of this year, which was conveniently 9 months away back in January when we finally said Yes! to the date. Well now, it’s inconveniently a lot closer and not even a stitch has been placed into a dress. Eh.
Well good news, my parents helped us save quite the pretty penny, and skip all of the third-party logistics by encouraging us to have our festivities at their home— my childhood home. I couldn’t ask for a better setting since I’ve always dreamt of a ceremony surrounded by nature. So, if we can make it through the neighborhood dogs, cats and squirrels’ cheering and well-wishes all will go well.
Behind the scenes, our wedding is spiraling into somewhat of neighborhood affair with many things like florals, décor pieces and desserts being created and made by friends and even some of the same women who changed my pampers 26 years or so ago . . . ^_^ yup! it’s that kind of love.
Needless, to say Frank and I are the snails.
Our bridal party has been quite anxious for about three years now, yet we haven’t even decided what kind of dress I’m wearing down the aisle. Maybe two or so years ago I did the unthinkable! I took Frank, and him only, wedding dress scouting. No matter what he may tell you –He loved it! No, seriously he did—or maybe it was just me modeling the dresses, who knows? regardless, ever since that day he’s been helping me decide on a style. He’s even sketched up several designs.
And we’ve had talk of honeymoon plans from Jamaica to Brazil, and from there to Egypt –today we agreed on Dubai, for the purposes of typing this to post. . . eh I guess it’s time to finally put Kobe on the corner to do his little twerk, cause Mommy and Daddy gonna needs some extra dollars to turn-up in the UAE. Don’t judge us people!
Everywhere else just seemed too obviously us. I personally want to honeymoon in a place that isn’t technically on my bucket list, but is more like a dream location. I figure we don’t get out and “party” much or live on the edge very often—all work no play. Yet, we have all the time in our lives to chase after serenity and white sand beaches, but I know we are bound to outgrow the livelife. So when we are old and gray, I want to be able to say to the grands Grandpa Frank skydived from an airplane over Dubai and I caught it on Periscope that one time -_-
