today and places

Today I...

1. Took my dress to a tailor to put sleeves on it. So expensive. I tried to barter with her, and then I tried to tell her I would babysit her kids for a discount, but I think she thought that was creepy.

2. Picked up and paid for the Lindt reception favor boxes. Linda was very loving even though I was so late to pick them up.

3. Compiled the list of our friends who are being sent invitations. By the way, thanks for all you're doing invitation-wise, madre. We so much appreciate it.

And then a few other menial things that aren't super important.

I had an epiphany today though, and that is that I really need to stop worrying about how expensive this wedding is going to be and sacrifice our funds in order to make this the perfect day. I will only have one wedding day and I have been skimping way too much. I am a reformed bride-to-be. From now on I will (still be frugal) but focus more on the day than the budget. Mom, stop cringing. Please.

Also, for posterity sake and because I don't like manually writing - here is something I would put in my journal but am going to put on the blog instead:

  1. I didn't cringe, honey ... I felt relieved! Money comes and money goes - it's just a thing. But the memories of your wedding day will be with you forever. Glad you've come to your senses!

    And it was sweet to read about your favorite places. Some of those are on my top 25 as well :)
