Hello lovely ladies !!
Good news (I think) ...... I ordered my wedding dress! Such a weight off my sholders and delighted that it's now ordered as I was totally stressing about time, but now I'm also stressing a little because I never had the "OMG this is the one" feeling like so many other brides, and it is terrifying me!! I mean I think the dress is beautiful, but I just didn't have that OMG feeling. Am nervous that I might have settled because I was running out on time, or was it complete and utter fear of commiting to one dress that cost so much $$$$$!!! Anyone else feel the same?
Besides that I paid the 50% deposit for our photographer Ivan Luckie which I am really excited about. We have him all day on the wedding day plus a follow up trash the dress session in TWO locations! We also booked him for underwater photography. I can't wait!
I'm from Ireland but living in US and traveling between both for work and personal, but my family will be coming to visit for 2 weeks this month so while they are here we hop eto get the guys outfits sorted, so hopefully that will be taken care of this month.
We have our catholic pre-marriage course tomorrow and Sunday, which at first I was like "what a whole weekend!!", but hey I guess they do these for a reason and I hope it will do us good.
So a lot of big items being ticked off the list but I am still feeling overwhelmed at how much needs to be done! I think I was totally disillusional when I started this thinking a destination wedding would be easy! It's a lot of work people!!
One thing I am so greatful for is my wedding coordinator, she has been absolutely brilliant, love her so much and she wil be getting a huge hug when I eventually meet her! I know other brides have been so frustrated with how long it takes to get replies or information but my w/c has been fab, no more than 24 hours for a response, perfect english, very jolly and happy attitude and so helpful.
Wishing everyone a great weekend and looking forward to hearing all your progress, updates and venting!!
