Sarah & Laura's Wedding - 4 Months to Go!!

I can't even believe I'm typing those words. 4. months. Holy mother of holy things.

Wedding planning has seriously kicked up a gear - gone from something we thought about a few times a day to a pretty constant thought topic, waiting to spring up when I'm doing budget spreadsheets at work or awkwardly when I'm trying to get to sleep...

But we love it so much still, and haven't yet hit the wall where it's become super overwhelming or stressful - except for about 20 minutes a few days ago when I realised we haven't even THOUGHT about the post-wedding activity day or honeymoon period!!

But luckily for us, we have the best support system ever. We are frequently really surprised and touched at how much people want to help us! Our bridesmaids and a few good friends are pretty much planning Vegas at this point, my Mum is sorting everything in Boise out in record time, and of course Brandi, our wedding planner, is pulling it all together for the big (large! huge!) day.

This past month we've done so many things! We've found a drag show in Vegas and convinced like half our party to go with us, we've booked transport and accommodation for everyone in Boise, we've found our wedding jewelry, and a few outfits for the week before, we've found my American passport (pretty essential, can't have me waiting in the 'non citizens' line like a pleb), we've booked in our dress fittings, panicked about the need to lose weight in the interim, we've scheduled hair cuts and colours, we've booked a few activities and started groups on Facebook to keep everyone up to date with all the information and book them into activities - we've done it all.

I've also been super impressed at how we have been communicating over the wedding thing. In high pressure situations, we have a tendency to not see eye to eye, and be very short with each other. Or more accurately, Sarah shuts down and is short with me, and I am super emotional about it. Bad times. But we've managed (so far) to come at all of our different opinions calmly, and talk it out together - yay compromise!

I just can't get my head around that tomorrow, it'll be 3 months and 27 days until our wedding. That has a 3 in it. OMG.

This next month we are having a planning meeting with Brandi, I'm getting my hair done (yay!), we will continue to plan every day of our epic 2.2 week extravaganza, and hopefully continue to tone up.

Here's my question to all of you! On the evening before the wedding we are going to have a Welcome BBQ/Rehearsal dinner. We will then be playing a movie on a projector in the woods, but we can't for the life of us think of what movie would be great! Any suggestions?? 


  1. Oh my goodness it is going to be less then 4 months and you will be married... I think it will go amazing, just enjoy the ride and don't worry too much... enjoying the day is the best thing you can do, make lots of great memories :)

  2. Ahhhh! So exciting! The movie question is insanely hard :o The only thing I can think of is if you have a movie that is "our movie." Alex and I love Moulin Rouge (well mainly me, but Alex pretends for me, haha) but I don't know if that would be pre-wedding maybe my advice isn't taht great after all, haha. Let us know what you finally decide on! xx Tay
