We’ve been engaged for one month.
- We have our date set.
- We have our venues booked.
- We have our guest list.
- We have a minister.
- We have our Save the Dates printed (which I’ll post once we send them out).
- We have our engagement photos lined up & paid for (they’ll happen in the Spring).
We’re trying to do this a smallish budget. We’re hanging onto the idea that this is one day of our life together & we would rather save our pennies to furnish our (well, “our” once the contract is finally ratified & we go to closing in December) amazing new house.
I have LOTS of ideas for simple yet elegant homemade decorations & centerpieces for the reception (which I’ll share as we make them) but I have almost no ideas for the ceremony other than I want it to be less than 20 minutes long & it’s going to be in a boathouse on a small lake in the mountains.
I get these bursts of excitement & all I can think is I get to marry this man. I am so fucking blessed.
