Wedding Plans: Part I

Even though MKD and I got engaged a year and a half ago, we did not get a lot of things nailed down for the upcoming ceremony on June 23rd, 2007. The venue was taken care of relatively early (we tried for 7/7/07, but the date was taken so we went with the date noted above which is one day before our 6-year anniversary) and that was it. Now, we are scrambling to get things in order and solidify everything. Dollar signs are flying around our heads and the ING account is rapidly dwindling.

This Sunday, we are meeting with a caterer we picked out. Prior to this wedding planning, I had no idea how much catering costs. It is borderline ridiculous the amount of money it will end up being. When we had gotten engaged, I was hoping we would be able to pay for the wedding and put a down payment on our own place, but that was me being way too ambitious and in need of a reality check.

The only other thing done is that we got our wedding bands. I am holding onto MKD’s until the ceremony and I am wearing mine now since I never had (or wanted) a traditional engagement ring. So this ring is my engagement/wedding ring all in one. It took a while to get used to it because I have never worn a ring on that finger (aww, a virgin finger) and is the most expensive piece of jewelry I have and will ever own.

Now it is onto getting the following done (in no particular order): flowers, music, photographer, clothes, shoes, wedding favors, decorations, alcohol, honeymoon, lawyer, hotel arrangements, invitations, registry, and probably a billion other things I am forgetting at the moment.
