Save Those Dates!

Warning: Wedding talk ahoy! If weddings aren't your jam, feel free to stop here!

I have to say, in the wedding planning process, I am one of those people who has to be dragged through the mud kicking and screaming just to get a yes or no answer to pretty much anything.  I deeply don't care about what the chairs look like.  I had to be persuaded to decide what, exactly, I wanted my bridesfolks to wear.  Cake?  Uhhhh, haven't really figured out cake yet.  (Personal note to cake: it's not you, it's me!  Don't leave, I love you!)

I'm really excited to be married... but I sorta hate wedding planning.

So in the middle of all of it, I am so glad that there have been a few things that we've stuck to since the very beginning.  We wanted an amazing photographer, and macaroni & cheese at the reception, and we wanted to send out adorable paper cards made by Lumberjack's mom.  Check, check, and check.

And even though I feel terribly behind in sending them, Lumberjack and I spent the better part of three hours last week hand-addressing envelopes, filling them with our seriously lovely Save the Date cards, and putting tiny vintage flower stamps on the front.  When they were all put together and in a stack, it felt so good - neat, and beautiful, and best of all, finished!

And I realized: hey, I like this part of wedding planning - the part where things come together.  And, admittedly, the part where I get to stop stressing out about it and eat my damn cake.
