Starting the Planning
First and foremost, thank you all so very, very much! As you can imagine, I am absolutely ecstatic and I love that you are all so happy for us. Commence jumping up and down and squealing. :cheer:
All of the details are still a bit fuzzy. We’re thinking the date is going to be May 24th of next year, but aside from that everything is hazy. We’re not sure if it will be in Portland or in Idaho, or how big/small it will be, or the colors, or anything. I am apparently not one of those girls who planned out their wedding when they were five, because I have only a very vague idea of what I want.
Once again, thank you all for your well-wishes and I will keep you posted!
May 24th? any reason? Love you!
Well, of course there are reasons, silly!
Our anniversary at the moment is June 24th, but 1) that happens to fall on a Tuesday next year; 2) everyone gets married in June and it makes everything expensive; and 3) my birthday is the 21st and it just seems too close together.
So! May 24th is in the same general timeframe so when our “years together” counter resets to “years married” it will be easy to do math. I am all about easy math. May 24th also happens to fall on a Saturday, which is good for traveling and scheduling purposes, AND it is not so very close to my birthday. Plus, it is a holiday weekend which may (or may not, I don’t know) make time off / traveling for guests easier.
