It’s finally snowing in Brooklyn! It’s been such a mild winter this year with temperatures reaching the high 50’s almost daily! As I sit in my kitchen sifting through a pile of wedding invitation style samples and look outside of my window at the highly anticipated snowflakes we’ve all been waiting for, I felt inspired to write.
Wedding planning has been easy as pie 🙂 We’ve booked the venue, selected all of our vendors, I found my dress (thanks Mom!), my bridesmaids all selected their individual dresses according to their unique style (they really are the most beautiful group of women in this entire world!), the DJ is booked and happens to specialize in the Greek-Spanish niche of weddings (who knew!) we met with our photographer last night (who is categorically a down-to-earth sweetheart) and we’re down to the invitation style details.
Fiancé is holding his own by taking charge of the desserts, champagne, musical score decisions and has proven to be the master of excel spreadsheets and pivot tables! His budgeting expertise and resourcefulness paired with my own ingenuity and eye for detail has made the entire process a seamless one. I sincerely could not be marrying a more supportive and accommodating person.
We’ve been engaged for about eight weeks now and I would say we are pretty much done with the planning part. We probably could have gotten married next week but due to the exorbitant amount of wedding costs we need time to work, work, work and save, save, save.
It always strikes me that whenever I say the word “wedding” the price of said service (or product) exponentially increases ten-fold. I made a cartoon to describe what the process feels like when shopping around for your big day.
