Here’s a little teaser for my next few posts.
Last weekend, my parents came down to visit. And for the entire duration of the weekend we were wedding planning.
If anyone has family who live far away, I have found that weekends like this are absolutely brilliant. Not only does it mean that your family can still be involved in the planning of the wedding in person (as opposed to just looking at things online!), but it also means that things have to get done. There can be no procrastination!
That weekend, my diary looked like this.
11:30 AM – arrive at dress shop, try on dress, decide on veil, and BUY IT
1:30 PM – meeting with florist
2:30 PM – go to hotel to look at rooms and discuss breakfast options
3:30 PM – see venue and test bunting; decide on length of bunting to sew
6:00 PM – cake-tasting party
12:00 AM – watch band perform locally
1:30 PM – visit one caterer for tasting and to discuss menu
4:00 PM – cake tasting and discussion at a local cake shop
10:00 AM – wedding fair at hotel on seafront
1:30 PM – visit another caterer for tasting and to discuss menu
That is a lot to get through in just one weekend.
Friday was…exhausting. But the other two days were pretty easy going in comparison! We managed to do everything we set out to do, made decisions on lots of things, and have given ourselves questions that we need to think about.
Do you have family who live far away? How are you managing it?
