(All from Once Wed)
What are your inspirations for your wedding?
Hopefully this gives you some sense of what I'm envisioning for our wedding. Oh right, it's OUR wedding, not my wedding. Guess I should mention something about my fiance then, huh? In short, he's awesome. Right now, he's doing a summer internship as part of his MBA degree from Columbia University in Dallas, TX while I'm hanging out here in NYC (I'm a teacher so summer is full of gloriously free time). I miss him a lot but being on my own this summer has given me the opportunity to really dive into wedding planning, uninterrupted. It's also allowed me to spend more time with my friends, run, organize our apartment, shop, enjoy New York and be on my own one final time before committing to a life together. Don't get me wrong, I adore my fiance and can't wait to spend the rest of our lives together. But there is a teeny part of me that feels sad to give up the independence and self-sufficiency I have cultivated over the years that comes with a marriage. I've come to terms with it but it was sort of fun to have this summer as my own. One final fling with myself, if you will...Alright, thanks for reading this and here's to all the wedding planning madness to come!
