Wedding is Coming!

I have been engaged since my birthday, March 5th, but this weekend was the first time it really sunk in that we are getting married soon! While I consider myself girly, wedding planning is not in my wheelhouse. I know it sounds crazy, but I just don't like it. I think details are stressful.  I could never be a party planner. This is mostly because I am a "big-picture" person. You'll catch me saying things like "It's all going to work out and be fun!" or "I just want to be married! The rest doesn't matter." Needless to say, I am not the most helpful partner when it comes to planning, and Lucas has been diligent and amazing. It's about balance, right?

We had our first wedding shower yesterday, thrown by two of my bridesmaids, Morgan & Monica. They did such a fantastic job! Because Lucas and I do not need much of anything (but we loooove music), we had the guests bring vinyl records. I am so excited to dive in and listen to our new tunes! The decorations were awesome, and it really sunk in that we are in the final countdown (sing if you'd like).

What's left? I need to buy shoes. If that's my only pressing thing, then I think I am in good shape.

Here is a pic from our shower:

Oh, and I guess I need to start working out again because I don't have a ton of time, and my final fitting is August 1st. So, bravely, I scheduled three 6AM Pure Barre classes for this coming week. That means the alarm gets set for 5:00AM. I can do this. I can do this. I just need some extra motivation, and what better than a wedding nearly six weeks away?

Next week, Lucas and I travel to Illinois for nephew birthday party and another wedding shower! I am very excited to meet more members of his family!

  1. Very nice post!! I am also not a good party planner and I would never try this. I just fixed the meeting with a popular planner. He would also help me in finding the most beautiful rental halls in Philadelphia for my wedding.
