Wedding Planning – less than 4 months away from the big day. EEK!
I love paid days off of work, they are my favorite. I get to sit in my PJ’s most of the day watching trashy reality TV while getting paid. What’s better than that? I woke up, made myself some cheesy pasta because that’s normal, right? Then I plopped down in the big comfy recliner with Tiny in my lap to watch my favorite TV show – Dog the Bounty Hunter. I will pause while you laugh…. done? okay.
I have some wedding planning details to work on today, mostly dealing with money. Think it’s time, like every bride would do … re-evaluate the wedding budget. It’s important to take a look at the budget from time to time to know if you are still on target and don’t have any surprise expenses popping up.
For J and I we were originally under the impression that our friend’s Uncle would be our officiant and that would be our friend’s wedding gift to us; however, that was months ago and we have yet to hear anything about it. So, now enter my panic mode and have decided that we need a backup officiant. I talked to our wedding planner and that’s going to cost about $150.
That’s $150 that we were not planning on spending for that… we had other ideas for that money. You know, like favors or programs. Now, I have to re-evaluate so that we can afford it all.
Oh wedding planning! It’s fun, but also stressful. Don’t get too overwhelmed with it, that’s what I have to keep telling myself or that’s what J keeps telling me.
Wedding planning helps you get an idea of the big picture. Know what parts will cost the most, for us it was the venue, photography and alcohol – you know, the important parts – the booze and the part that will capture those moments!
I will be sitting in this big, comfy chair for most of today working on some wedding planning – crunching numbers, stressing out, and thinking that I’m wanting to do too much; however, in the end it will all work out and I will get to marry my best friend.
