2019 will be a big year for me, because for some of you may know from my last post, I am getting married at the end of the month. Planning a wedding can be pretty daunting. I can’t say that I wasn’t nervous in the beginning about the whole process. But luckily I got a venue that pretty much does everything for me. From the caterer to the florist, to the bakery and the DJ. Because one of the things that I was worried about is finding good vendors that would fit my needs and my budget.
Though my wedding planning is a breeze due to an awesome venue. I would be lying if I say I’ve never had a meltdown. A couple months in after we decided on the date for the wedding, I was feeling overwhelmed. I felt like I was alone in this journey and I felt so behind, even though the reality was, I was ahead. Also another thing that makes my wedding planning a breeze is because we decided not to have a wedding party. We wanted the wedding to be as small as possible, only family and close friends. Which is an important thing to figure out in the early stage of planning, it is how big you want your wedding to be. Though most groom-to-bes don’t really care or mind about the number of guests. But it is good to be on the same page so both of you can feel comfortable on the actual party. Back to my meltdown, it didn’t last that long for me and luckily I didn’t turn into one of those bridezillas. I have to say that I feel like I’m way too chill for a bride who is getting married in two weeks. Is that even normal?
Since I have no experience in this wedding planning thing, since it’d be my first and last wedding, I’ve learned a lot along the way. Like don’t forget to write your guests’ names on the RSVP cards, so when they return their cards, you know who it’s from. Also to get your return address labels made or get it printed on the RSVP envelopes, so you don’t have to write it by hand. Trust me, I learned the hard way. But I have to say, the hardest part about wedding planning is waiting for your guests’ responses. I checked my mailbox everyday and our wedding website, it was just the longest weeks ever. Also dealing with late responders also wasn’t fun. I’m not a person who likes to reach out to people, but the time is ticking and I had no choice. Even then I had to google when would be the best time to reach out to late responders. I was surprised that I wasn’t the only one who’s curious about that. So, thanks google!
I am excited about our wedding, we are just hoping that people will have fun. Enjoy the food, the open bar and dance the night away. Also, please enjoy the cake too. I guarantee the cake will taste amazing!! Our picked flavors will do you no wrong!
