I feel like every single week I am going to repeat the words “I can’t believe how close we are” and I mean it. I am shocked every time I look at the date and realize that in just a couple of months I get to marry my best friends in front of our closest friends and family.
If you didn’t already know, we’re having a pretty small wedding compared to others.When you move away from your hometown where we live currently for seven years, lets just say you don’t stay in touch with too many people. Neither Joe or I have big families, but honestly that’s okay with me. I don’t personally want 200 people that don’t know us or make an attempt to be more than acquaintances attending our wedding. We have friends and family from out of state that may not be able to make it, and that’s the sad part for me.
Since our wedding will be around 50-60 guests we are keeping our wedding party very small. We both agreed on two people each. My bridesmaids will be my two sisters who just so happen to be two of my best friends as well.
Another thing that we are doing in our wedding that may be different is that I plan on having my mom walk me down the isle. I know it’s typical for the father to do this, but I feel like it should be whoever you feel in your heart to do this part. The person who raised me my entire life and who has been my best friend since day one is my mom.
P.S The next wedding post will be all about our invitations! Since they are finally sent out, I cannot wait to share.
