I had this genius plan to spend two to three days a week wedding planning, three days a week just focusing on my job and then one day a week focusing on finding us a place to live (which Sean has kind of taken over and is doing a fabulous job at, I must say).
BAHAHAHAHAAH! Anyways, that was a really funny idea that I thought would work.
Monday is supposed to just be spent on lesson planning, grading papers and all the millions of other tiny things my job requires.
So yeah.... yesterday I was on the phone with different people from the time school got out until 10:30 when I finally hung up from my last phone call, doing what? Wedding planning. Fail.
Plan B: Plan to not plan.
And I was definitely NOT the girl that started planning my wedding when I was 18. No way. I started planning 5 days ago because let's be honest, I was never actually sure if I'd get married or be able to tolerate someone enough to attach myself to them for forever. I've got a lot of lost time to make up for! So actually my advice for anyone who doesn't even have a boyfriend or the faintest idea of who they could marry, start planning your wedding now. Pick out the venues. Find a good caterer. Have your maid of honor throw you a shower. Turns out it's never too soon to start. I'm thinking I'll start planning my daughters wedding when she's 6 or so.
I have been able to find a few things to help me stay organized though.
I have my wedding planning book, PINTEREST and "The Knot" app which I adore.
Of course it also reminds me of the 12,000 things I need to do when I can fit in a spare second.
(How do some people get married 7 times?)
It doesn't even matter though because now I have an actual wedding date and regardless of whatever works out or does not work out, I'm happy. Mark your calendars folks!
