Realization has set in … Time Crunch!

My parents are finally back from the Philippines and wow they brought me a lot of goodies ahaha. There was one whole suitcase just for me! Let’s just say I won’t have to go shopping for clothes for a while since my mom bought a whole bunch of really cute tops and blouses! It really helps because it’s all stuff I can wear for work since I don’t really have too much nice “office wear” clothing. That’s the downside of having to dress up a bit more now working in an office, you stress about what to wear for work, ESPECIALLY when you know you have some kind of important meeting and you need to look your best since you are “representing” the company. Now … I have nice office clothes! I could still need some more pants and skirts though LOL.

The other half of the suit case dedicated to me was my wedding stuff!! She practically bought me most of the things I need! She already bought my wedding veil! It’s super long though. I told her I didn’t want it super long at all but she bought it anyway and it’s about 5 yards long. I just don’t have the heart to tell her that I don’t really like it but oh well. It beats me spending another $100 on just a wedding veil. I’m sure I can make it work. I wouldn’t be wearing it for that long anyway. I would only be wearing it during the wedding ceremony and a bit for the photos. But now that I think of it … it might be PERFECT for a certain photo that I want. I saw a photo on pinterest where the bride and groom were sitting on a field with the veil over both of them as the wind is blowing and it looked incredibly romantic. So … maybe that veil must just work!!!

My wedding favour!She also bought me the traditional Filipino cord and veil for the ceremony as well, my ring bearer pillows, my wedding shoes (I already bought my own but she insisted I wear these ones LOL), and what I got really excited about … my wedding favours!!!!!! They are super cute! It has my cherry blossoms on it and our names on it!! That really hit me hard seeing our names on it because it’s starting to become real that I’m getting married. Now I’m starting to feel the pressure because I still haven’t found a venue yet and have barely started on any of the actual “planning”. If we are to get married next August, I should be really starting now because I was planning on sending “save the dates” in December but I don’t think that’s happening quite yet. I’m starting to stress out a lot about it. What annoys me is that the venue I want is not open on weekends so I can only make an appointment with them on weekdays … Seriously … what that the hell is that about? They should know that people who plan events like these are mostly likely available on weekends because they have jobs and they have lives during the weekdays so it makes NO SENSE TO ME WHATSOEVER as to why they CLOSED ON WEEKENDS!!! The problem is, my year-end deadline is next Friday so I won’t be able to make an appointment until the week AFTER which delays it even more … Not only that but I have to figure out a way to be able to leave early to take a day off from work to figure shit out. Time is crunching away and I’m feeling stressed. UGH.

    Congratulations on the upcoming wedding. It sounds like there is still so much to do. Tim and I never had a big wedding. We married by the court. We do plan at some point to have an actual wedding, but I fear the planning will be very stressful. This is about you. This is the time for you to embrace your future, and do everything you can to make this wedding happen. You have amazing parents, and a wonderful mom, to have bought you things you need for the wedding. I really hope that somehow you can have your wedding at the venue you want. That would be important to me too. It’s just not fair that they cannot accommodate for people on the weekends. Being open on weekends would make things run smoother. I wish you well in all the planning. I look forward to reading more about this wonderful part of your life. I truly wish you the very best.

    That’s nice of your parents to get you so much stuff! Wow, that’s a really long veil. It would make for nice photos, though it might be troublesome to wear. Perhaps you can get it tailored if it feels too long 🙂

    Love the wedding favors! That’s a pretty fan, and it’s great that your names are on it too.

    That’s weird that the venue isn’t open on weekends. I definitely had to use weekends to look at them. Though, I also started planning in December and was able to use some of the winter holiday to look too. I think the recommended time period for Save the Dates is 6 months before, so you still have time on those! Good luck with everything!

    You should post pictures of the clothes your mom brought back, I hate wearing “office wear” also. I can’t even imagine the stress you’re going through – seriously what venue isn’t open on weekends? Maybe you could contact the event coordinator there and ask to set up a time to see it on the weekend. If you explain your situation they may come in just to show it to you (i’ve heard of several venues doing that.) Best of luck and try not to stress…too much!
