A little wedding rant

Wedding season has officially kicked off. 

I had joked going into 2014 that it would be non-stop and go-go-go all year. From start to finish, I wouldn't really stop until the holidays were over. In my head, I thought that I was overreacting, but let the words come out of my mouth. Little did I know that I would be jinxing myself into this actually being the case. 

On paper, I have five weddings this year, in four states. I'm in three, one of which is my own. In one, I am the Maid of Honor {technically I will be a matron by then}. Two happen to be over the same weekend. One, I won't make it to as it is six days after mine. The brides in my life have Memorial day, Labor day, and Columbus day weekends covered. 

So when I say wedding season has kicked off, it has kicked off with a vengeance. 

Starting next weekend with the first bridal shower, and ending in October with the last wedding, I will be essentially unavailable from now through then because I will be tied up with wedding-related activities, as a bride, maid of honor, bridesmaid, and guest. 

But don't for a second think that I am complaining. I am so thrilled and honored to be a part of these weddings this year, and obviously I am ecstatic to be planning my own. My besty doesn't know it but I cried when she asked me to be her MOH {it's a new development in her wedding planning, and I was just so excited I couldn't help the tears} -- It's such a happy time, and stressful time, and expensive time, and joyous time. I'm overridden with emotion. 

I also have so much left to do that it's not even funny. Yes, big stuff is done. Yes, we picked out and purchased our wedding bands. BUT- we still haven't picked a cake. We still haven't decided on any of the music. We still haven't finalized our invitations and stationary {although I'm hopefully in the final review stages, just waiting on the 6th proof I've asked for} We still have a lot to do. Eek!!! 

So, I guess I'll see ya when I see ya, and I apologize in advance that I probably won't be talking about anything that's not wedding related for the foreseeable future. I don't want to be one of those annoying brides, but when I'm this head first in weddings all year, I don't think it's 100% my fault. ;)
