Wedding chit chat.

More wedding talk? I know it's getting ridiculous. And I know I said I wouldn't do it, but it's all over the brain (well when I'm not thinking about the next episode of Dexter and IS DOAKES GOING TO FIND OUT?!?! and HOLY CRAP LILA and AH DEXTER YOU HAVE SUCH A CUTE SMIRK) and apparently I'm obsessed with caps (I blame Nicole).

But people we are almost to the one month mark, ONE FREAKING MONTH. I know everyone said time would fly by and seriously they weren't kidding, it feels like freaking yesterday that Matt was down on one knee, I mean really, REALLY.

However as much as I'm not freaking out (you wouldn't know it from all the caps) I have so much going on it's sort of insane for any bride-to-be. I mean want to know what my next month looks like? Of course you do.
  • Trip to Guerneville with Matt's family.
  • Summer Friday to get our license, have a fitting, order our cake.
  • BlogHer in NYC (woo woo! are you going?).
  • Annual family reunion/picnic in Salinas.

  • Probably another Summer Friday for another fitting because apparently fittings don't happen on weekends.
and BOOM! Two weeks later, I'm getting hitched. Serious crazy pants ridiculous here people. Minus the fact that we're totally slacking on booking our honeymoon stuff, I feel okay about the wedding prep. I mean there is lots of little crafts to be done (hello bridesmaids!) and just people to call and things to check off lists (that might be one of my favorite things, checking things off lists, oh so liberating!) and just yes. It's coming up people and I couldn't be happier.


Also! Oh you thought I was done there didn't you? (I did too actually). As you all know I'm going on my honeymoon for two weeks and I don't want to abandon the blog, so any suggestions? I think I'm going to ask for guest bloggers but I want to give them a theme or some direction or something to fill those nine days (yes I plan on blogging briefly the Monday after I'm married, what can I say? I'm obsessed). So any ideas for themes or questions to ask potential guesters?

You all rock my socks off and thanks for tolerating the wedding jibber jabber. I appreciate it and heartfaces to you all.



happy wednesday!

Tolerating it.. I LOVE reading it! Hee. :) I think being busy is a good thing - will give you less time to overthink and worry about the little things.

Wish I could go to BlogHer (like I do every year) but will have to live it through everyone's recaps. :(

Allison said...

Eeeee! I am so excited. And yes, I could read as much wedding chatter as you can produce. No worries there.

One of my favorite blogs, Cup of Jo, did a cute guest blogging theme while she was off on her honeymoon -- they had married friends and family write fun love/successful marriage advice and post pictures from their own weddings. Maybe not so hip and hollywood as your usual blog offerings, but I thought it was really sweet. (See an example here http://joannagoddard.blogspot.com/2009/09/craig-nova-my-secrets-to-happy-marriage.html)

Mandy said...

Time goes so fast doesn't it? Crazy! I have a friend getting married NYE, it seemed like such a long way off but the other night we were talking bridal shower, bachelorette party, rehersal dinner -- its right around the corner.

Angela Noelle said...

Well, with your blog, I think it would be pretty fitting to give your posters some kind of pop culture theme ;)

Good like in the final countdown, I know you'll have so much fun!

Katie said...

So you are coming to BlogHer NYC!? I will be around... let's hang out!

Amanda said...

Girl, you're getting married in a month - talk about it all you want! :)

Mrs Soup said...

Wooo! I loves me wedding talk!

And you should totally have guest posts of people posting about their wedding or honeymoon or something along those lines. Maybe funny stories from their wedding?

michelle woo said...

Yeah, I'm not FREAKING OUT, either. Caps lock! But wow, what a month and what year this has been! So exciting.

Heidi said...

amanda said...

and that picture of you and matt? just awesome. yup.

also, themes...obviously you're going to need some one to do a hollywood day...so that's a must theme. ehh, you could chose a person from a different city/place and do something along those lines. i have no idea-haha.

wooo blogher!

Ali said...

I'll totally guest for you!

Vanessa said...

I love hearing about weddings! Don't you worry about it. Good luck with all your planning! :)

alyssa said...

Seriously! It goes by so SO fast! It's kind of crazy. We have 3 months to go! Eeeeek!

Nora said...

That was hardly wedding chit chat! I've heard/seen much worse :) I can't believe it's only one month away. So excited for you!!!

Andrea said...

ONE MONTH YAY!! (Caps lock caps lock.) This month is going to fly by! I'm not even sure when the next time I will see you is, but you might be a married woman! That's crazytown.

As for themes, I don't know... Fun/funny/romantic wedding stories? I'll definitely guest post for you though!

Hannah @ The New Black said...

That season of Dexter is good!

The Big Day will be here before you know it. I like guest posts...they are a great way to find new blogs.

Grace said...

Wow. I can't believe you still have so many other activities planned before the wedding. I think I would book the entire last two months for just wedding stuff. haha. It's better that you are confident and comfortable with how it's going.

Guest bloggers sound like a great idea too. Maybe it can be a vacation theme or writing about relationships (or maybe that's too cheese-tastic?)
