Days to Go: 163

I don’t really have many updates! The trouble with planning your wedding two years in advance is that it’s so slow!

We booked the wedding venue, the church and the photographer December 2009/January 2010, which seems like ages ago. We booked most of our suppliers in Spring and Summer of 2010 and I bought my wedding dress last April. Everything is organised!

Wedding things are, however, starting to take over our living room. I’ve ordered and received all our wedding favours which includes bubbles, boxes and little organza bags.

I’m also collecting shoe boxes to use to put all the tables items in. All the favours for table one will be in one box with the place name sittings and the table plan for that table. So those shoe boxes are all piled in a corner of the living room.

My h2b is also planning on making a photobooth for the wedding, which means we have photo frames leaning against the living room walls.

This is a photo of the photobooth my friend had and I thought it was such a fantastic idea that h2b and I wanted to copy! H2b is now going to make himself a photobooth! I really can’t wait to see what it looks like as I am trying to leave him to it. That’s not easy for me as I like to be involved in everything, but I am taking a back seat on this. Although I will be blogging all about it!

But generally I’m going weeks and months without needing to do anything wedding related. We are doing little bits here and there: making the name tabs for the tables, the photobooth, the table confetti, but it’s just really slow.

I’m still as excited as a bottle of pop though!

    Hi Fran! I think it’s nice that you’ve got this little bit of space where you’re not rushing around, consumed by wedding planning. I hear so many stories of brides who feel ‘lost’ after the wedding: when there’s nothing left to organise, it can feel strange if that’s all you’ve been doing for the last eighteen months! So it’s good to be organised well in advance like you are.

    The boy and I are planning on getting married in 2 years. It’s amazing how many people are surprised that we’re “leaving it so long” and, I have to say, I really haven’t done anything yet, thinking that it’ll be ok because we have lots of time! I suppose I really should start thinking about things though, right?

what do you think?
