It has been forever since I have updated this little blog of mine. What with work, wedding planning, a little trip overseas to China, family, friends and looking after our home, there is little time left for frivolous, fun things like blogging. But here I am, and with a wedding update no less.
We have come a long way in the last month or two. With roughly a year of planning between our engagement and the wedding, we experienced a bit of a six-monthly lull after all of the big things were locked in but before anything more detailed needed to be attended to.
Most recently, we have:
- finalised the guest list;
- ordered the stationery suite;
- selected and ordered the bridesmaids’ dresses;
- finalised our ceremony program; and
- met with our priest, Father Michael, planned our ceremony together and completed our pre-marriage discussions.
Fingers crossed and touch wood and all the rest, there have been a couple of minor hiccups but nothing has proved particularly stressful so far. It is a bit surreal spending so many hours planning one, albeit very special, day (one of what I hope are many special days) in our lives. So I have enjoyed the way that this time has also focussed our discussions on what life will be like after the wedding, which is so much more important than the wedding itself.
