Ugh - yet another change in my wedding date.
For all who remember my last post a few weeks ago, FI and I were making our "engagement party" a surprise wedding in May. My best friends parents were allowing us to have it at their home. Nice tented outdoor wedding. Well thanks to my dad the guest list increased - and my friends father was no longer comfortable with the idea. So we had to push the date back.
New wedding date is 9/27/13. Friday evening wedding.
I have gotta admit - I am relieved. With such a short amount of time, and keeping everything secret, I was NOT enjoying the planning process AT ALL. Now that I have more time I am having more fun with it. I also made a list of pros and cons of pushing back the wedding, and the pros outweighed the cons. My father (who is footing most the bill) was fine with the decision, as well as my FI. FI saw the bridezilla in me beginning to brew so he was definitely relieved.
We booked our venue, DJ, and photographer, and photo booth vendor.
We are getting married at a brand new Hilton Garden Inn right up the street from me. Only been open about 9 months to a year. It is GORGEOUS inside - and it's close to tons of restaurants and shopping. The hotel is actually attached to an indoor/outdoor shopping center with a brand new movie theater. Guests can walk from the hotel right into the actual mall.
Tons of food, plus 5 hours of open bar.
Being we have gone from a more relaxed wedding to an elegant evening wedding, I am changing my dress. I am going to go with my heart has been set on - Maggie Sottero Arabella. Ahhhh :)
Just wanted to do brief update. Last couple weeks have been crazy.
