I’m sure I’ll eat my words in another 9 or 10 months, but this wedding planning thing is dead easy. Boring even.
We’ve currently got the following things booked and ready to go:
As well as an officiant, our cake, and some entertainment.
We do still need to tackle invitations (and figure out who exactly to send them to), but that doesn’t seem like a terribly major undertaking.
I suppose we do still need something to wear, as well as some other decorative details, non iPod music, and hair/makeup whatnot – but for all intents and purposes, this thing is ready to go.
It certainly helps that by having the wedding in Tofino, most of our decisions are made for us. The resort handles all aspects of the ceremony & reception (no separate caterers and flatware rental companies), there are only 4 marriage commissioners to choose from, and there is one florist. The photographers were a no-brainer.
But having all these things done doesn’t stop me from acting indecisive around vendors – watching them fall all over themselves trying to woo me with their wares is one of the best parts of being a bride-to-be!
After all, it was only by engaging in some wedding-related conversation while donating blood, that I received this priceless gem!
One of the nurse’s assistants at the clinic where I was donating blood also moonlights as a makeup artist. It’s heartbreaking, really, that I won’t be married in the city, so I can’t have my own hair feathers, heavy eyelashes and bright fuschia lips! The only word I can really think of to describe this particular look is “special” – perhaps you can do better?
