I won't lie, Matt and I weren't always on the same page about this wedding shindig. Over the last two years, I had really warmed to the idea of eloping. Primarily to avoid the stress of planning on a limited budget, but also because eloping seemed uniquely us. Matt, on the other side of this coin, saw us surrounded by family and our closest friends just enjoying ourselves and each other. When it's put like that, it was an easy decision.
A lot of elements about wedding planning have been challenging for me. Finding a dress was no fun. Finding a venue that we loved and could afford was even worse. But now that the biggest pieces of the puzzle are in place, it's easier for me to enjoy the process. I still find myself saying geez why can't we just be married already? often, but I've gotten excited about some things.
Our invitations, by August Park Creative. They're so obscenely cool that even Matt gave a reasonably enthusiastic yeah, I like those! If you know my fiancé, you know this is a big deal. He doesn't have an ounce of giddiness in him.
The music. Matt and I have had a great amount of entertainment in just tossing out ideas for our wedding playlist. References to 80's movies we grew up with? Obviously. The soundtrack we've chosen so far is pretty damn epic. It's pure fun. And maybe my new husband will even dance to some of it!
Alright, July 5th, let's do this.
