Progress Made And Budget Redone

Settling back into the work week after a massively productive weekend! Signed a contract with our travel agent agreeing to the flight and resort, plus... I bought my wedding dress! It’s exactly what I envisioned, but BETTER. It’s not going to be ready until end of June, but that’s fine with me. It’s just nice to have something else knocked off the list   All in all I am happy with how the planning is going, but as of a couple weeks ago me and my FH sat down and redid our budget and realized it

Picking And Choosing

From here, on discarding traditions and making your own, or picking traditions to carry on.   I’ve had some surprising things to wrestle with now that my wedding is on the horizon. I tell others and I tell myself that my ideal wedding is a court wedding followed by a small, intimate, backyard BBQ party. I’m not an ostentatious person, I prefer not having the spotlight on myself, in my heart I know that a full day of putting myself on display will wear me down. But faced with the actual prospec
