The Reality of Planning a Wedding
Ever since I got engaged last month I've been neglecting so many things. I feel like I spend every free moment planning the wedding. I already have appointments to tour possible venues, but honestly I'm already so over having a wedding.
I'm not the type of girl who has been dreaming about their wedding since childhood. Until I met my fiancé I actually never had a desire to get married and never really gave a lot of thought to what my wedding would look like one day. This might sound crazy considering the fact that I was engaged before and even went so far as to book a venue and buy a dress. But, looking back on it now I realize I was just going through the motions and was afraid of disappointing people.
At the end of the day it's not the wedding that is important to me, it's knowing I am marrying the right person. The cost of having a wedding is beyond ridiculous, it's such stupid money to waste money on a party that is only going to last five hours. I would much rather put it towards buying a house or splurging on furniture that we will have forever.
When I started to really think it my dream is to have a rustic casual wedding in Napa, but I'll be just as happy with a civil ceremony and a small party for close friends and family.xx
