Planning a Maritime Wedding

Planning a Maritime Wedding

So a funny thing happened shortly after I finally tried to launch this blog: I got engaged. Then my cat died. And whoosh, all my attention went elsewhere. It helped that photographers were not sending me weddings to feature, and this little pipe dream of a blog fell quietly by the wayside. I’m sorry about that. Then I realized: what better time to be writing a blog about planning a wedding than… um, when I’m planning a wedding?

In the three months since becoming engaged, my fiancé and I have:

  • chosen a date
  • secured a venue
  • hired a photographer
  • picked “the colours”
  • hired caterers and done a taste-testing
  • tasted wines and ordered them
  • hired a day-of coordinator
  • hired a hair & make-up person
  • gone outfit shopping (I’ve ordered my dress, he’s still looking)
  • ordered and mailed out save the dates
  • found an officiant
  • bought his ring and my wedding jewelry
  • made a wedding website
  • started working on the playlist

Phew! It’s been a whirlwind. Friends have commented on how “on the ball” I’ve been, and I just keep saying: “weddings are literally my job! We knew what we wanted!” And there’s been a bit of luck involved, too. So now, what I’m going to try to do, is share this process with you! Tally ho.
