Have to Tell Somebody

Friday, March 01, 2013

Okay, so I'm all excited right now and I gotta share this. My fiance and I decided not to tell anybody just yet until things are more concrete, but I have to tell someone. We've decided to scrap the June 2014 wedding. We're getting married this year. Like I said, not sure when just yet, but we will be getting married this year. This means I need to get my butt in gear because my vanity wants me to look as good as possible on my wedding day. There are some downsides. It means no dream dress or anything special. But who cares? Every bride looks beautiful on her wedding day (thank you Mirimum) and so will I. It's going to be simple and I can't really go into details cuz I'm trying to get this blog out before I go to work and I don't want to be late again. But if any of my lovely Spark friends want to attend the wedding, you are more than welcome to come. I would just adore to meet some of you guys. You've become almost like family to me in all the support that you give. So if you want to come, send me a message with your mailing address and I'll send you an invitation when the day gets closer. And of course I'll keep everyone updated as things go along, but like I said, if you think you can and you want to come to my wedding, please do. I'd love to have you. Anyway, must run now. Talk to you all later!

    Congrats! I think that is just fantastic! It's similar to the decision my fiance and I made when we decided to get married as soon as possible when he gets back from deployment rather than wait a few extra months. The point is, you'll be together for the rest of your lives and there is no timeline on earth that should keep you apart longer than you have to be! Best wishes and many blessings! You go girl!

    Congratulations!!! This is wonderful news! I'm so proud of you for not letting your weight bog you down! You're going to look gorgeous because you will be happy and in love :D :D :D

    We moved ours forward as well. The plus side was that in planning to do it suddenly sooner, we had less than a year of stressful wedding planning and we were able to get a really great sell-off package deal at our venue of choice.

    Congratulations and I'm excited to here more details as they are firmed up :D

    My husband and I did the same thing! We realized that we'd waited too long, and none of those material things mattered anyway. We were waiting for the perfect time, the perfect location, the perfect dress, or the perfect decor, and nothing is ever perfect. I got married in a knee length, three-quarter sleeve blue cotton dress, and he was wearing dark gray dress slacks and a blue shirt. The officiant dropped my ring in the middle of the ceremony, and I went diving after it like a crazy person.

    But we're happily married today - one year and five months! In the end, all that matters is that the two of you are happy.

    This IS exciting!! I'll tell you the same thing I told my oldest daughter.
    It's not about the dress, or the venue. It's not about the flowers or the shoes.
    It's all about two people in love committing to sharing their lives together. As long as there is You and Him and that amazing love, there is a marriage. All of the trappings make it pretty and fun, but you two make it real!

    Congratulations! I don't think I could wait until 2014, if I wanted to get married. We eloped when I married my ex-husband. Brides always look beautiful on their wedding day! No worries there!

    Congratulations! A simpler wedding is what I prefer - just get caught up in the moment and enjoy your time together. May you have a beautiful day!

    How exciting for you. Good luck and God bless.

    That is AWESOME news! You're right - EVERY bride looks beautiful, and the important thing is that you and your fiance do what YOU want. Sometimes that means "why wait and go into debt for a big shindig?" when you can make your commitment to each other now with a simpler ceremony! I'm so happy for you!

    emoticon I was a caterer for 27 years so I’ve seen all types of weddings . After just having three sons get married in a space of 11 months I can tell you the simple and spontaneous wedding of our dear friends daughter was a lot more fun, more beautiful , less expensive and will probably last longer than what I experienced in my daughter-in laws had to have, everything, showy scripted circus of what they called THEIR weddings. Hint share your ideas of what you want as to a perfect wedding with your and his friends and especially family , You would be surprised how much those who know and love you would love to help, or have great suggestions and would do anything they could for you in order to give you , your perfect day!

    Congrats! I think it happen a lot when 2 people have a scheduled wedding that they don't want to wait! Something romantic about getting married more on a "whim"
