I have a date tonight and I am oddly excited about it all. I mean what girl doesn’t like to get all dressed up and have a fancy night out every now and then?
N works the day shift on Fridays at his new job. Team sports is a big deal in this area and that means Friday night news is all about the sports coverage, that means N doesn’t need to work the late shift on Friday- yay!
So we are trying out a fancy restaurant tonight to treat ourselves. After a successful move, nailing a better job and an engagement we deserve some one on one time together, big time!
I have also been brainstorming wedding stuff. With all the insurance and not being married talk I have been motivated to research wedding venues and try to figure out some wedding alternatives.
N and I really enjoy formal dining and want to have a formal meal for our wedding but we are also paying for our own wedding so we are really looking for ways to not go broke on a wedding. We cannot afford to pay for a plated meal for each one of our wedding guests, besides not everyone enjoys a formal sit down meal.
An alternative I have read lots about is a cocktail and hors d’oeuvres reception as an alternative for a sit down meal. Many brides have done it and it seems like an option we’ll consider for all our guests, we still want a formal dinner though. Maybe we can just do it with our immediate family or something.
I don’t know what I want, like I said before I was not one of those girls who planned her wedding before becoming engaged. All I care about is spending time with family/ friends and doing what makes N and I happy. I guess I am still open to ideas and suggestions, got any?
