Binder full of brides

Friday, April 26, 2013

It's been over two months since CK and I got engaged and no, we don't have a date set.

It's cool, we're working on it.

Finding a date that fits into our very full 2013 wedding guest calendar has been a problem, so has finding a venue we can afford on our budget that we actually like in Canton, Oh.

But it's cool, we're working on it.

I mean, I have a board on Pinterest...that counts as planning, right? I also know I want to get married at St. Haralambos Greek Orthodox Church and wear white - but that's about it.

TOTALLY COOL, we're working on it.

Well, thanks to my dear friend Moe I officially have planning binder, aka she's oh so slightly publicly nudging me into getting my shit together.

I love how I make Moe pose with the binder she gifted me instead of me actually posing with it, ha.

So after officially receiving this binder, I wrote "Chris & Alexa" in the cover where I'm suppose to and left the "date" section and everything else blank... we'll get to that, eventually. May 2014 sounds nice.

Happy Friday, kids.

  1. dates are just a way for the Government to keep track of us and keep us down.

  2. I am SO envious of your binder - I have a 5 subject notebook that is probably from college that I'm using. And a big box. And a little notebook. ha ha! Soooo many things to keep track of. But my secret wedding Pinterest board is my favorite.

    I'm all for a longer engagement - let's you enjoy it more. I though just over a year was plenty of time but once I got into it, a little longer would have been nice too. We have a new baby, a baptism, 3 HS graduations, 2 50 yr class reunions and 2 weddings all w/in the immediate family this year so I can totally relate to trying to find time for everything.

  3. Getting married in canton, eh? Thought of what kind of baked goods you are wanting? Ever thought of a Baklavah inspired cake? because I have... I wonder who could possibly pull that off.... ohhhhhh... wait....

  4. You do whatever you need to do to get to that happy place where you can be excited about your wedding.

  5. I love the title of this post. Hope you guys find a venue soon! I can only imagine how frustrating that is. I've heard nightmare stories in Chicago too.

  6. Yeah so I'm finally catching up on blogging and since I'm now engaged as well (yikes!) I've been reading your wedding-related posts! We're thinking May 2014, too... unless I can't find a darn venue. Hope it's all continuing to come together for you!

  8. I am very sympathetic to your viewpoint. It is very deep and meaningful.
