Trying to plan a wedding around an international move and other particular details isn’t the easiest thing in the world to do but it doesn’t have to be the most difficult, either. Right?
We are working on wedding plans but nothing is solid as of yet. Well, except for the photographer but we cannot book them until we have an exact date for our wedding and we cannot choose a date for our wedding until the visa is approved (thinking positive).
It’ll be a small wedding (under 20 guests), something we both would prefer. I’ve always dreamt of sitting with my husband and all of our guests around one table. No up and down this way and that, no going from one table to another, no dozens of people you’ve never met or have only met once, but rather just a few people sitting around a table outside under the setting sun. A nice dinner, some music, a little dancing and the greenery of a summer garden surrounding us. I close my eyes and I can see me and Si in that place and it makes me smile, feeling so excited for that day and what’s more, all that comes after it, our marriage. The good and the challenging, we get to face it and handle it all together. Talk about the ultimate wedding gift; a partner for life.
Right now people are asking about my wedding dress… erm, um, uh… what wedding dress? No, I haven’t gone shopping yet and to be honest, I don’t know when I will. For sure I want my mom and bestie to be with me but to try and figure out all the other details that go along with trying on, ordering, and shipping a wedding dress? Oy.
I think I know the place to go or at least one of the places thanks to my bestie but as far as paying for the dress and having it shipped? Well that’s another beast altogether. Do they ship wedding dresses overseas? Is that even worth the risk? I mean, should a person trust Shipping Company A to get their wedding dress to the church on time? So to speak.
All I know, all we both know is that we want to be together as husband and wife and that makes all those little wedding details a person would normally stress over seem pretty insignificant. In the scheme of things, planning a wedding doesn’t need to be stressful as long as you focus on what you and your husband want instead of what everyone else wants. And our wedding, as beautiful and as peaceful as it will be, is for us and our commitment to one another and frankly that makes planning it easier to do, regardless of the details involved when it comes to The Big Move.
