Wedding planning can be tough stuff. I’m in the thick of it, 6 months and 13 days out, and I couldn’t be more excited. I still have to decide pretty much EVERYTHING, except the location. The GTB and I decided to scrap our venue and move our reception to the backyard. Of our new house. That we moved into 3 days ago.
This “new house” was actually built in 1958 and needs word. A LOT of work. We’ve found a contractor and an architect, and we’re planning a MAY-JAH remodel (we’re talking walls torn down, exterior of house pushed out a few feet, new hardwood flooring to replace carpeting, custom cabinets, new lighting, electrical, plumbing, doors, security system, the works.
So, I’m wondering, WHAT THE !&#% AM I DOING?!
Am I seriously planning a wedding reception in this backyard, of this house that we moved into 3 days ago? With a remodel project that won’t start until mid December, at the soonest?!
Oh, and on top of that, we have a bunch of light fixtures to replace, a bathroom, mudroom and entryway to TILE OURSELVES, and a bunch of rooms that need to be scraped of their awful wallpaper and painted.
I think I’m starting the beginning of a 200 day anxiety attack 🙂
Does anybody have recommendations or words of encouragement?!
