that post on 100 layer cake about the wedding planned in 7 days really made me think about streamlining.
I have just over three months to go and the knot's list says I'm behind. Well, how exactly do you check off boxes that say "think about how to do your hair" ? ookaaay - check!
here's the thing, if my guests want something from a wedding besides what I provide at this shindig, they can get their own wedding. this one is mine. if my wedding is a deeply bland affair to attend, well, that sucks for you, I get to get married so it won't be for me. if my indie (is that what I am?), diy (am I?) wedding is not "totally unique" (which is grammatically incorrect by the by) or perfectly us, well I will make it ours if only because we are getting married.
so far we have completed:
venue (ceremony and reception plus catering) - check
cake (thanks mom) - check
save-the-dates (so most people know about it) - check
champagne (thanks dad) - check
dress (I own it, it's in alterations process) - check
photographer - almost check ___
registering for things I don't need - ___
invitations - in the works
flowers (farmers market - if I have to, i'll tie a ribbon around three dahlias and be done) - ___
officiant (she's getting certified) - check
man of my dreams - check!!
what am I forgetting?
I dare you to tell me.
