The Big Day
So, I’m getting married on 19 August 2017! Yes, the day had finally come. It is so close yet it feels so far still, but my nerves are definitely starting to get the better of me. So I’ve decided to do a few blog posts about the event and the lead up to everything, just to get it all out there, therapy you know.
For a long time I thought I had to be married by at least 25 and have two kids by the time I was 30. Then some shit happened in my life and things didn’t go according to plan. This was hard to digest at first because you have this set plan in your mind and then things just go totally wrong. Once I got over it all I was ready to move on with my life, and boy am I glad that I didn’t get married at 25 (to totally the wrong idiot), and boy am I glad I don’t have two kids yet… don’t get me wrong, I want to have a child, just not right now.
So today I’m nearly 32, I met the love of my life (well met him again) at 29 through Tinder and I am so thankful for that app for bringing this light into my life. We talk about it often and although he is totally all that my heart desires, I don’t think things would have turned out this good if we had dated when we were younger. The time in our lives when we did get together was perfect. I had grown more, and so had he, and I had learned to accept myself a bit more.
After dating for about 2 years he asked me to marry him and it was perfect. He had made my life complete. I obviously started some planning right away and today, with about a month and a half to go, most things are in place and we are waiting for that day!
I’m very excited about our special day, but I am also feeling a bit anxious, which I’m sure is normal, right? I just want everything to go well, to be perfect and I want everyone to see our love through it all and really enjoy our simplistic wedding. We’ve opted on a smaller morning wedding with 70 guests. We’ll be getting married at the venue and then have a breakfast/brunch reception at the restaurant. We wanted to keep things very casual and simple.
I’ll share some more posts on the wedding with you as time goes by, and of course after the wedding I’ll share some of the photos of our day.
