Sunday is the one year anniversary of Ken and I departing on the vacation on which he proposed (although he didn’t propose until 8 days into the vacation!) We’re now just about six weeks away from our wedding!
I thought I would compare how my thoughts differ now compared to early in my engagement. I wonder if other brides-to-be experience the same?
Early in Engagement: Woohoo, Wedding Magazine subscriptions
Late in Engagement: Why am I still getting these in the mail? I already have my dress and I read about these ideas online months ago.
Early in Engagement: My to-do list has things like “pick venue” and “book catering tasting.”
Late in Engagement: My to-do list consists of 200+ discrete tasks
Early in Engagement: Look at all this amazing stuff on Etsy! I’m going to buy so much stuff on here once the wedding gets closer!
Late in Engagement: This stuff is still amazing, but dude, it’s also SO expensive.
Early in Engagement: OMG, Style Me Pretty is like the second best wedding site ever! I’m totally having all those amazing DIY elements
Late in Engagement: I’m pretty sure there’s about 3000 dollars worth of details in that single photo on Style Me Pretty
Early in Engagement: I’m so glad we’re having a 14 month engagement! It’ll give us plenty of time to plan all the fun things we want to have at the wedding!
Late in Engagement: Ugh. I can’t believe I’ve been thinking about this wedding for nearly a year. I wish I would’ve planned it all in six months or less.
