So as you all know, Joelle and I are engaged. That means wedding plans are abounding. It’s almost overwhelming the amount of things to consider when it comes to a wedding. That said, it’s also a lot of fun. We’ve already been all over the Binghamton area looking at reception halls and have settled on The Silo Restaurant in Greene, NY. They have a very nice banquet room for the reception and lots of landscape outside that will provide a nice background for pictures and such.
Joelle’s already decided on a wedding dress that I think she’s going to be ordering this weekend. Also, she went out to the craft stores with her mom last weekend and put together a test centerpiece for the tables at the reception.
Now, you may think to yourself, “Self, they’re starting this planning business really early aren’t they? I mean, their wedding isn’t for another year and a few months.” And you’d be correct, we are starting early. But we’re lucky we did because many of the reception halls we called were already booked for the date we picked (which means there are crazier people out there). The truth of it is, I’m glad we’re starting early. Planning a wedding traditionally has a great deal of stress associated with it and I want to minimize that as much as possible. Starting way early gives us plenty of time to make decisions on all the important things.
So pray for us. If you know anything about weddings you know there’s still a lot of things to take care of, from favors for the guests to honeymoon arrangements. I’ll keep you posted here on the plans and if you have any words of wisdom, leave them for me.
