Real Simple Weddings ...




Hey peeps! I hope you're all surviving hurricane Sandy! Not much is going on up here in Toronto except for lots of wind, no sun and lots of rain. It was a pretty crappy Monday and I may or may not have almost called in sick for work ...

I wanted to update you on my wedding planning process - correction, lack of wedding planning! So far not much has been going on due to the weather, the fiance and I not having time to really sit down and discuss what we want to do due to his hectic work schedule and me not really feeling up for 6 months to a year of wedding planning. Also, the engagement photos didn't happen due to the rain. Ah well :( I guess this is all part of the process AND we've only been engaged for three weeks so no biggie :) 

So let me explain ... I am super excited about marrying the fiance and planning a lovely day for us to celebrate our love and commitment to one another. I am not super excited about picking venues, centre pieces and all that other "fun" stuff that comes along with getting sucked into the wedding machine. I understand that some women get really excited about all these details and that's okay. I think most would expect me to plan a traditional wedding with all the details in check simple because I love entertaining, tend to pay attention to details and have been known to enjoy my DIY projects. I'm just not feeling up for that for our wedding and would prefer to keep it as simple and stress-free as possible. I don't want to get sucked into the wedding machine by losing touch with the true meaning of our wedding. I also don't want the wedding planning to take me away from my everyday routine and all the other things I spend my time doing.  SO, we'll see how it unfolds. The good news it that we're going to be seeing our first venue this Saturday and I have the Real Simple Weddings guide to help me along the way. Thanks Izzay!

Hope you're all having a good week so far.

Happy almost Tuesday!

A simple wedding is all I ever wanted and I'm so glad I got it. We were married in Hong Kong, just the two of us. It was just so much fun. We then had a blessing in Fiji. Fingers crossed you find something you both absolutely love!
