How come you press harder on a remote control when you know the battery is dead?

I became an engaged woman around Christmas. I will spare you the romantic details but it was one of those "should we?" situations that ended in a "why not". It was a funny thing, Superman and I have been together for a mighty long time and we never really talked about marriage. I think the fact that we chose not to have children early on made marriage less of an issue for us. Now that we have decided to do it we have a million things to plan and organise. Or not. We've talked about quite a few ways we could do this but nothing really seems to stick and now it's looking like next summer makes more sense as far as planning and booking a place goes.
When I first realized it was going to happen I actually bought some bridal magazines! I never thought I would do that but I was getting kind of caught up in the whole"bride" thing and it was fun to think about. In reality I don't think I am, in any way a typical bride and Superman and I know that we are far from the typical soon to married couple. So, what kind of a wedding to people like us have?
I have no idea. This is what we know so far.
  • Probably around 100 people.
  • Close to home.
  • Possible theme: Honky-Tonk
  • We must have live music.
  • We both want to perform, including Country -Married -Couple -Duets.
  • We don't want to go into massive amounts of debt to do it.

That's about as far as we have come. I know none of this sounds very romantic but lets face it, wedding planning is just event planning and the overwhelming details can make a girl wonder...

What's wrong with being engaged for a couple of years?

Stay tuned right here for more details.

We got married in the fall. We used colored leaves as decorations and it was great!

I'm all about that low frill, low cost wedding...

Good luck with it!

sounds awesome- do it your way & enjoy it!

i don't get why people spend thousands & thousands of dollars on weddings, our was about $800-1000 all together and it worked quite well I must say...! :))
