I'm gettin' me a husband!


You read that correctly, I’m getting married! After wanting to be engaged for so long, I am now finally able to call Vince my fiancé! Agh! I’m so excited. I won’t be able to call him my fiancé for very long though, because we will be married in SEVEN WEEKS. Ya, no time at all! And no, I am NOT pregnant. Hehe.

My grandparents on my dad’s side are most likely going on their LDS mission in January and I HAVE to have them at my wedding. I of course have to make things a little harder by wanting to get married by the end of summer so it can be outside!

So the date we have set for the wedding is Saturday, September 17, 2011. I am so excited for that day to come. Even though I know it will come a lot sooner than I expected, it seems so far away!

I have three amazing bridesmaids and maid of honor, and oh man, am I going to put them to work. One of my bridemaids, Annie, already helped me pretty much plan the entire wedding before I was able to even announce to everyone that I was engaged! We got together, she just rattled off a list of questions and I answered them, and just like that we were done! It was pretty great. Now we just have to worry about collecting everything, making everything, and in general putting everything together. This is where the rest of the bridesmaids come in handy!

Vince and I are not expecting money from either of our families, so we are doing this on a TIGHT budget. Considering we had almost nothing in our savings account last week due to our move, this will be quite a challenge for us! We are getting money from the deposit from our old apartment and we sold our washer and dryer, which gives us a pretty good buffer. Our new rent is also a lot cheaper, so we’ll be saving a bunch of money that way!

I plan on giving you all the details money-wise though in case anyone ever wants to plan a super cheap yet elegant wedding, so stay tuned! 

Yay, I’m so excited, I'll have more details in the upcoming weeks!
