So I would like to think I’m a rather unconventional bride. I have a planner but not until the month of our wedding. Or well 6 weeks before. Her name is Kristin and I love her!
We got engaged on a Wednesday and Thursday morning I was up and making things happen. I was all about lets Check it off the list. Why? Because our wedding is during the biggest football weekend in Dallas AKA TX/OU weekend! Yeah if you know what that is you are probably thinking…YOU ARE CRAZY! Well that date also has meaning! Its one year from the date A and I moved in together and we loved that idea. So the date was set and I got on top of things because I did not want things taken for that weekend and I knew they would be. Within 17 days I had our venue for the ceremony and reception, our photographer, videographer, Rabbi, Rehearsal dinner spot, my wedding planner, bridesmaid dresses picked out, menu set, DJ, piano player for ceremony, etc. The only MAJOR things I have not done are the cake and my dress. We even have our Save the dates done. They are being mailed out next week!
Plus our website is up and running 🙂 OH and we have registered
Some think oh wow she’s on top of things, or Oh wow she’s really doing things super fast. But let me explain some things to you:
1. Its TX/OU weekend…please look it up
2. I have a full time job, a full time blog and a full time fiancée that all need my attention. No one told me wedding planning was ALSO a full time job.
3. I would like to eventually have some free time back
So Checking it off the list was just something that HAD to be done!
I do feel a huge sense of relief even though I have tons left to do(those tiny details).
This is a pretty general guide but can be helpful to some brides that may need it
How long did it take you to start planning your wedding?
