Wedding This & That

For the past month or so, I've been doing a lot of research and brain storming about ways I can design a beautiful and personal wedding and stay within our quite limited budget. Determined to save a pretty penny, I've thought about all of the things I and my friends and family could possibly do ourselves, and I'm feeling quite confident in my (our) DIY abilities. In fact its kind of hard waiting a little over 8 months until the wedding, because there are so many projects I'm eager to start on! However I did recently (as in, last night) design our wedding announcement, and to tell you the truth, I sat and just stared at it for a while. I guess part of me was a tad proud of myself, and the other part was just so giddy that its more concrete evidence that this in fact isn't a dream, but that I'm actually going to marry the greatest guy in the world.

In my eager fashion, Joey and I went to Charlottesville this last saturday to do our gift registry at Bed Bath & Beyond. But there is a reason for my hastiness--you see, now that school has started, Joey is going to be quite busy at VMI with parades, football games, and various duties with the many, many clubs and staffs he is a part of. So basically, if there's a free weekend to get something done, we're gonna take it!

Joey and I had a great time picking out things for our future home. It was a little strange at first--I felt like I was a kid pretending to be an adult, and then I was like, 'who are we kidding, no one's going to buy us this stuff!' But as the consultant pointed out, its our wish list, so wish for what you want! Plus, the registry lasts for two years after the wedding, so people can still get us gifts for birthdays and holidays from our list, and we can buy things we weren't gifted at a discounted price. Sounds like a good deal to me!

THE scan gun (though slightly disappointed that its not really a scan gun).

I think I'm going to have a bit of a love hate relationship with wedding planning. I'm not fond of the stress of making everything work and worrying about fitting in a tight budget, but I love doing things with Joey like registering and looking at venues, and my creative self is simply spinning with all of the DIY and art making opportunities!
