8 Months

18 Nov

One month shy of a full-term baby.

Two semesters of college classes.

The length of a basketball season (or so it seems).

The number of months until my wedding.

Yes, that’s right. I am getting married in 8 months- a little less than that, actually. On July 14 of next year, I will be Mrs. :).

I can’t thank you guys enough for your kind words and congratulations. I apologize for being MIA this week, but I’ve had to put wedding planning before blogging. Who knew that there was so much to do so soon?

The good news is, I feel like I can finally relax now. We have booked the most important things (the church and the hall), and now I can do the rest little by little.

You’ll have to excuse the large number of wedding-related posts that might appear in the next 8 months. I don’t plan to make this a wedding blog, by any means, but I do plan to share the fun, and sometimes stressful (I’ve been told and already experienced) planning experience with you. If you have wedding planning advice for me, it’s more than welcomed :)!

This weekend we’ll probably tackle the guest list, but I’ve also got dinner and ice skating plans with friends. Until then, I must get ready for work. Before I go, here are the winners of the Agave Giveaway:

Congratulations girls! Send your mailing info. to perfectionisnthappy@gmail.com and I’ll get your agave out to you!

Have a great weekend!

Do you have any wedding or marriage advice?

What is your favorite part of a wedding?

    Enjoy it! That’s my biggest piece of advice. And also, nothing matters except the fact that you’re getting married, so don’t worry about the guest’s favors, what’s on the menu, or what flavor the cake is. The fact is that YOU’RE GETTING MARRIED! Be excited, be happy, and go with the flow!

    PS Your wedding day goes by SO much faster than you’d ever think! It’s crazy!

      That’s so true. I’m doing my best to remember what this is really all about, and I want to enjoy the process along the way :).

    Here’s what to remember: You’re going to have fights preparing for the wedding. It’s inevitable. When you start to pick at each other or bicker over some small detail, stop, take a deep breath, and remember that you’re fighting over how to publicly express your undying love for each other. Laugh, kiss, and then figure it out.

    So excited to hear more about your wedding planning process!!! Lay on the details- we’re living vicariously through you 🙂

    No lie… You kinda freaked me out with the pregnancy comparison being your lead in!! 🙂 Best of luck. It’s all about the marriage not the wedding day anyway… plus, from reading your blog, I know you’ll be on top of all the details!! CONGRATS!

    Okay sooo I’m not engaged (not even in a relationship haha) BUT I have four friends getting married in the next 12 months, so I feel like I know something about the wedding planning process. From what I’ve observed from my four friends: do not, do not, DO. NOT. let other people determine what should happen in your wedding. Obviously you can go to people for advice, recommendations, whatever, but ultimately, it is YOUR wedding–not your bridesmaids’s wedding (…not your future sister-in-law’s wedding…sighhhh). If you want a particular color scheme, doggone it, go for that stupid color scheme. It doesn’t matter if your fiance’s older sister doesn’t like that color (completely hypothetically speaking of course…hahaha). Letting other people plan aspects of your wedding you want control over is just going to lead to bitterness and resentment (and foolishly updated Facebook statuses in the heat of your anger…again, totally hypothetical 😉 ). It is YOUR (and Jordan’s) day, thus you (and he) should be the final ones to make calls on things.

    Also, congratulations on now actually having a legitimate reason to go on Pinterest wedding binges (unlike those of us who are distinctly not engaged, not even close to being engaged, and still insist on planning their future weddings on Pinterest…daily. Oh, my life…ha).

      Thank you so much! This is such a good point…I’m already learning that I need to stand up for what I want :)!

    The largest lesson I learned along the way from planning my own and my seven-time run as a bridesmaid (wow), is that if you focus your energy planning a MARRIAGE and less on the wedding, you’ll be too happy to care if anything isn’t perfect. My favorite part of a wedding is seeing the light shine within a bride and groom. The bridal “march” into the service is the best!
