well first off, happy Friday.
Second, I'm planning a wedding.
I know I don't mention it often here- for awhile I felt sort of overwhelmed and lots of other blogs I read have either had a) expensive weddings b) wedding planners c) no worries whatsoever when it comes to their wedding planning and $ that goes with it.
and that made me feel....very protective of my wedding.
because, know this: Jeff and I are paying for most of the weddding ourselves. it isn't going to be some huge fancy shindig.
what it will be is FUN and full of love and laughs.
I just hate the thought of people judging our day. know what I mean?
but I want to share a little bit- not to the point where you guys are like "omg Nicole- get over yourself and your wedding...boooring", but just enough that you get the feel for what it will be like AND give me your opinions on things that I can't decide.
One major issue that has been happening the past several weeks the date and location of our wedding- you see, we have a date, September 21st 2013 (one year from TODAY) and a location, Camp Mataponi on Sebego Lake (google Camp Mataponi weddings and you'll see why we fell in love with it..) and all was (is) well and good. The camp is amazing because not only is it quaint and lovely with a gorgeous building for our reception- but there are cabins on the property for guests to stay in- each with bathrooms and electricity! It is a one stop party shop!
BUT THEN my mother.
she pointed out that the cabins don't have heat.
and my wedding is September 21st.
so I freaked out- because sometimes in Maine September is lovely and in the 70's. and sometimes it can get cold. Like this week for example, some nights have been down in the low 40's.
and I cried.
and felt like we made a HUGE mistake going with our hearts on this place.
but then my wonderful fiance, who seriously can calm me down in any crisis just by looking at me and laughing (the only one who can get away with this technique I might add), sat me down and explained that our friends and family who grace us at this wedding won't freeze to death. That they will be smart enough to bring warm clothes and sleeping bags. That we can't control the weather and maybe it will be warm next year. That even if it IS cold, it will be fine. That I shouldn't give up my wish to have a fall wedding simply because it 'might be' cold.
He even suggested we give out electric blankets as a wedding favor.
well, actually he said: "what if we get an electric blanket for each cabin. Then that night we can have a jousting tournament for each cabin and whoever wins gets the blanket! BOOM! problem solved!"
that, ladies and gents is why I love him.
SO- we are sticking with our hearts- and the wedding WILL be on September 21st, 2013 at Camp Mataponi on Sebego Lake.
stay tuned, I'll be sharing rando details about our day over the next year. tell me if I get annoying!
