Thought I’d drop by since I havent written in a while. In case you’re wondering, no, I’m not engaged yet. The ring is almost ready (apparently) so I guess its just a waiting game now.

But while I wait, I’m pricing venues and vendors, and so far a lot of childhood envisions of a wedding have been regrettably cut down to size. Wedding guest counts have gone from around 60-70 to around 30-40. Ideas of a fantasmal cake have gone down to individual cupcakes per guest, and 5 attendants per side in the wedding party have gone down to just one or two.

So yes, my ideals have had to be shorn but you know what, thats ok! At the end of the day, I just want to be pronounced husband and wife and anything inbetween is a bonus!

The only two main things I dont want to really compromise on are my wedding dress and photographer. Those, to me, are the most girly parts about a wedding that I dont think deserve to be budgeted.

The food will get eaten, the venue will get cleaned and hired out to another couple, the flowers will wilt, and the party will end, but the photos will last a lifetime and, well, you’re kinda wearing your dress in the photos and you want to look radiant on your wedding day.

So, while I wait, I’m looking for intimate venues…and I’m almost tiring of wedding planning before its even begun!
