I May Be In Over my head
As my recent post had indicated, I am engaged. I am very happy about this arrangement, except for the random moments of hyperventaliting "Dear goddess, what the hell am I doing?".
I had another hiccup in this whole thing too, though: the wedding. I have never been the type to imagine my perfect wedding: in fact, when I had those conversations in my youth I would normally reply that I wanted to elope in Vegas. But, in this case, I cannot do that: both of our parents would kill us (or rather, be "very disappointed" in us, which for some reason still bothers the both of us, although we are adults). I joked to my fiance, Brandon, that we should just tell our parents that we're eloping, and if they want to have a ceremony, they could pay for it, but somehow we both know that that would go over like a lead balloon.
So, odds are, we're going to have a wedding. Now, this is a still a few years off, so I don't have to care too much about it right now, but I have recently discovered that I know nothing about weddings. I was reading Pandagon and how Amanda was amazed that her sister had put together a wedding in a month. I mentioned to Brandon that a month seemed like a long time, and he looked at me as if he was getting a child for a bride. Apparently, there is more to a wedding than mailing out a couple of invitations, renting a building and a few suits, getting a dress, and reserving a hall. Huh, who knew? Obviously, I am worse than the most priveleged guy when it comes to knowing how to make a wedding.
Since I apparently have no idea how to throw a wedding, could some of you in the blogsphere be kind enough to send me a list of all the things that need to be organized for a weddding? Or, if you are married, what did you have to do for your wedding?
