I hate to say this, but I’ve had a really easy time planning my wedding. Maybe it’s because we’re two grooms, maybe it’s because we both know what we want, or maybe it’s because neither of us are batshit crazy.
SIDENOTE: I am batshit crazy, just not about weddings.
Naturally, I’m really excited about my wedding. However since I am the first of my friends to get married, I’ve realized how much time I spend talking about it. Since I’m a somewhat decent human being, I also realized that constantly talking about my wedding probably isn’t the best thing to do. You know what though? I DON’T CARE. Guess I’m not that great of a human. Oh well! LET’S TALK WEDDING.
Venue: Booked. Officiant: Booked. Photographer: Booked.
Save the Dates: Sent. Music/Entertainment: Booked.
I feel as though I’m so ahead of the planning but at the same time still so behind. A lot of what is left is simply purchasing items here and there. Centerpieces, groomsmaid™ dresses, and a cake topper. Seriously guys, I’ll trade my kingdom for a damn cake topper that my fiancé and I can agree on.
Really quick–can we talk about how weird weddings are? I mean, sure, it’s beautiful to commit to someone in front of everyone you know and love, but at the same time I can’t help but feel like a wedding is also a time to gather everyone you know in one place to show them that you ARE worthy of love. It’s like the best high school reunion ever. Yo everyone look at me! I bagged me a dude who doesn’t judge me for my kangaroo collection! True story guys. I have a shit ton of kangaroo stuff.
SIDENOTE: I have my own room for all my kangaroo stuff. It’s my home office, but still guys. Brett gave me a whole fucking room of our house for my kangas. True. Love.
I’m not sure what I’m more excited about; to marry the love of my life, or to see 100+ people enjoy themselves at the biggest party I’ve ever planned. I cannot relax if there’s someone out there having a “bad time.” I’m fairly confident that my wedding will be a lot of fun for everyone because we’re having it at a zoo, we have a lot of exciting things planned, and (mostly) because there’s an open bar. Whatever the case–this wedding planning process has been a dream. I know that not all brides/grooms to be have this same experience. Until any speed bumps come up, I’ll be here, counting down the days until I can look Brett in the eyes and say “I do.”
