Wedding Planning Update: 3 and a half months to go!


"I'm getting married. I'm going to be a bride", I realized as I was standing in a gorgeous wedding gown, looking at myself in the multiple mirrors of the fitting room in the Vera Wang store. Obviously, I've known for a while that I'm getting married (there was a proposal, a beautiful ring, a party), but seeing myself in a poofy, white dress definitely made everything very very REAL.

The countdown to Our Big Day is officially at the 3.5-month mark. My goodness, in three and a half months I'll be a missus with a new last name. How crazy is that!? To me, very. But a good crazy. I can't wait to celebrate our wedding with loved ones and for The Fiancé to be upgraded to The Husband.

Wedding planning is going at a thousand miles an hour. We've done so much since my last wedding update. We've finalized the cake, made a lot of decisions regarding colors, decor, flowers and all things pretty, and received our wedding invitations, which we'll be sending out at the end of the month. 

I've also chosen my hair stylist and makeup artist for the big day, and I've invited my bridesmaids and maid of honor. Luckily, they all agreed to be my minions sidekicks. We've also bought our plane tickets to South Africa and have been helping some of our guests plan their trips there as well.

I've been on a serious hunt for The Dress. Mostly online. I did have an amazing experience trying on dresses at the new Vera Wang store in Taipei. Of course, I fell in love with the most expensive one in the store... Just my luck. Anyway, I'm glad to announce that I've officially found The Dress and it is making its journey from the States to Taiwan as we speak.

Next on our to-do list are picking out wedding rings and finalizing everyone's outfits and accessories. We are also working on the playlist and figuring out which song we want for our first dance. For some reason, this always leads to us finding the most inappropriate songs on YouTube and imagining everyone's faces if we were to dance on one of those. I don't think my 80-something grandmother would appreciate that... I promise we won't, Ouma, it will be something romantic and appropriate and magical.

Time is going by so fast and I'm getting more and more excited as the weeks go by! I can't wait to go to South Africa and have all my friends and family together in one place. 

Stay tuned for another wedding update in a month or so. Hopefully by then we would have made a decision about our first dance song... Suggestions are welcome, by the way.
