A New Finding!

So, while we're in this "lull" in waiting to see our possible venue choice (Sunday, March 1st ~ 1 week and 5 days!), I went back to the website to gaze at the photos and lust... In the middle of this lusting, I noticed that the bridal room has, on its wall, a painting that I was SO close to buying 9 years ago when I moved into my first apartment! Umm...coincidence?

Wedding Reality Shows

After watching a couple of handfuls of wedding reality shows, I really have to wonder how SOME couples survive...or how they even came to be together! As expected with the genres, the brides and grooms are constantly at each others throats, or suffer from wedding bi-polar disease, going from one extreme to the other ("Oh, I love you! ...Oh, I HATE you!"), that I end up doubting their sincerity when it comes to their wedding vows. Oh, come on! Those tears are FAKE! Whateverrrrrr...

I just finished watching an episode of "Rich Bride, Poor Bride" where the bride couldn't even enjoy the planning process because of their budget. She became so frugal with EVERYTHING, and couldn't see till it was too late where extra money NEEDED to be spent (i.e. ~ a photographer, a salon for hair color so she wouldn't have blue hair, someone to set up the wedding venue the night before).

I'm just so glad I'm not her!!! Or any of these other bridezillas on the screen...and I hope to never become one! That may be one advantage I see in getting married in my 30s. I've heard and seen it enough times ~ I don't expect things to be completely "perfect" at my wedding. Andrew and my parents may hurt me for saying this, but I see the budget as more of a guideline. I can't expect us to be exactly on budget. If we go a little over, it is what it is. If we're under, then great! We have a lot of nice options in front of us, that I think whatever direction we go, we'll make it beautiful.

However, I wouldn't mind if David Tuttera stepped in and planned my wedding! ;-)
