Whew. Things are changing folks.
We no longer have a wedding day set, a location, or anything else.
We are starting over and working together to re-think how we want our wedding day to be, what is important to us, and to make a plan of how we will make it happen.
I suggested to Eric that we each make a list of what is really important to each of us with regards to our wedding. Mine looks a little something like this:
-My Mom, Siblings & Their Families, and close friends are there
-The ceremony is out in nature, preferably near water
-We have a cake
-Someone else makes the yummy vegan foods and serves them
-We have time for plenty of pictures and plenty of time to breathe and enjoy the day and the real meaning
That was pretty much the just of my list.
As you can see, there is not spot for DJ or dancing or everyone we've ever met having to be there.
Now, we weren't exactly going for that before, but with the way we were going, we would have had those things, even though they aren't important to us.
What really matters is that we are there, together, enjoying the moment with those we are closest to.
We both feel so much better and so relieved with these changes.
We need more time, we need more clarity, we need to stay true to us.
Many of the things I've shared on Wedding Wednesdays will still be a part of our day, and I'm looking forward to making decorations and planning details.
We may push the wedding back a year, we could do it sooner, maybe we'll be married on the moon. Well, not really, but what I'm saying is right now we dont' know and we like it that way.
We're going to plan this day together and every step of the way make sure we are doing what works for US.
I'm looking forward to being excited rather than overwhelmed.
This is a very good thing.
Love and Marriage,
