Wedding Talk

Because I don't want to bore anyone with minute details of my wedding planning and because there are only T minus 4 months til the wedding date, I will try to not overwhelm this blog with wedding talk. However, our experience so far with planning our wedding has been really fun for us, so I thought I'd share a few things that might be of interest to those who are planning their own weddings. In coming posts, I'll share our engagement story, our wedding philosophy/vision which has guided all of the decisions (some of them difficult) we've made throughout the process, and how we've managed to get through it all (so far) without fighting! That last part might be hard to fathom for those who know us. :)

A general overview though - we're planning an intimate and (hopefully) fun October wedding in D.C., where we live and work. The wedding will actually fall one day before the four-year mark of the day we met in a Dupont Circle lounge, the same lounge where we will also be throwing our Cupcakes and Champagne reception post-wedding! We're excited. Our families are excited. Our friends are excited. Can't go wrong, right? ... Well, let me just say, it's not all fun and games in wedding-planning-land when you're trying to keep the affair small, eco-friendly and affordable, when all sorts of people have opinions about how things are "supposed" to be, and when the Wedding Industrial Complex is tugging you every which way to get you to fuss about matching napkins, favors, stationery, aisle runners, etc. This is where having a shared, clear wedding vision helps you snap out of it, dust your shoulders off, and move forward planning a wedding that reflects who you are as a couple. Stay tuned...
