You’re Engaged, Now what?

Hi Guys!

I thought that I would talk about something different in this post, wedding talk. I’ve been with my partner for 11 years and we recently got engaged on Christmas Eve. I’m extremely happy and excited for what’s to come, having that said, we had to decide if we wanted to have a wedding or not.

First, unlike a lot of women I’ve never fantasized about having this big extravagant wedding. Second, I’m not the traditional bride and third, weddings are expensive and having to spend such a large amount of money for just a few hours has never been appealing to me. Oh and I want to add that this wedding planning stuff is so much better said than done when you’re doing it on your own. Im sure that if I didn’t have a full time job the experience would have been more pleasant because it just comes down to time and I didn’t have any.  For all you wedding planners out there, you are my hero’s.  The idea was to do a small cocktail wedding, 50 people tops and be married by a judge. I had picked out a venue that included most of the particulars and was ready to go. Then came the hard part, creating the invitee list. Like I said before, I’ve been with my partner for 11 years therefore we have met a lot of people along the way. We sat down, started writing names down and suddenly stopped. My partner said to me, people are going to be left out, feelings are going to be hurt and people are still going to talk, are you sure that this is something we want to do. That’s when I said that this was starting to become more about making other people happy. So we stopped right then and there and decided we weren’t going to have a wedding.

We ended up deciding that we will be getting married at the courthouse and having lunch with our closest friends and family afterwards. Don’t get me wrong; we will be celebrating, but its just going to be the two of us taking a trip to Europe. The wedding dress and pictures will happen, just our way. What’s more important than making such a special day in your life just about you and your partner, nothing, and that’s what it’s really about at the end of the day. So remember when getting married, make sure that you’re doing it for all the right reasons and that your wedding is for all the right reasons as well.

Cheers!
