My First post!!! So exciting! Seriously though, I am overwhelmed. It's a happy, excited feeling - but...still. I don't know where to begin. Some history:
We're both in our 30's. This will be a 2nd (and last) wedding for both FI and I. We have 4 children between us aged 3-10.
Both of us already have some things in mind for our wedding... mostly that list is made up of things we DONT want (based of course on our first experiences - ones that we don't want to duplicate). From that list we have narrowed it down to the following so far:
VERY intimate (possibly only us + pastor, immediate family)
More casual, not formal (no big puffy dress or tuxes)
Christian Covenant ceremony (no JOP or formal church)
Outside (likely snowing)
Big party after - put possibly months after, to include all of our friends
I may not even wear a wedding dress (probably no). Thinking of a smart winter white wool coat, darling hat & mittens, faux fur/cape, and bitchin' boots. He'll wear a casual suit, I'm guessing.
This website is awesome, but its overwhelming. Even the task list is overwhelming because we don't want half of what is on there. No shower, no fancy fancy. No party favors or guest book. Just him and me and God. How do I start planning with that? What do I do first - book the pastor? Find the venue? Sort based on priorities or money/budget?
Do they even make a planner out there specifically customized to people who just want to concentrate on certain details? Can I delete things off of my Knot task list if I don't want them? Because seriously looking at everything on there makes me feel fussy.
Seriously no idea where to start.
But - YAY! I'm getting hitched! LOL. Thanks in advance.
This isn't our second time at the rodeo; this is our LAST time at the rodeo. Loving my homeboy God-guy!!!
