It’s almost wedding time! If you’ve kept up with me on this blog, you’ll know that everything about my relationship with my fiancé has been unconventional. We’ve done years of long distance dating, have traveled over oceans to be together, and we even got engaged via video. If you missed that beautiful craziness, check it out here. So, having said all this, of course we aren’t going to be walking down the aisle in a traditional manner. Our story is as different as our love is strong, so now that it’s almost time to say “I do”, I thought I’d share what we’re planning!
I’ve been discussing this on social media quite a bit, but Dylan and I are still in the very slow race to obtaining a US visa for me. I am hoping that in about 5 or 6 weeks I’ll saying “I do”, but unfortunately, I can’t plan anything with certain dates because our visa situation is largely dependent on external factors. What I can tell you though, is that we will be having a small courthouse wedding with only a handful of people that are near and dear to our hearts. After the main event finishes up, we’re going to head to a local bar to celebrate and hang out with everybody. For me, the idea of a wedding has always been such a personal affair, so to get married with hundreds of people watching feels a bit alien. Many brides obsess over their wedding day to a point where they can’t enjoy it, and I really don’t want that to happen. The mutual commitment and love between me and Dylan will be the most important thing that day, and I will be absurdly happy to have some of my closest friends and relatives by my side on such a special day.
As for little details, I’m still working though them. I have yet to pick out a dress, but I’ve been throwing some ideas around twitter and I’ve gotten incredible feedback. These are currently the top three contenders, but there’s no guarantee that I’ll end up with one of them.
I’m leaving a lot of it up to the universe. I’m bringing my good vibes with me, and I know that the people around us will do everything to ensure we have a happy and wonderful wedding day.
Here’s to life, and here’s to love.
