Wedding maniac

Wedding maniac

My intention was to write posts during my days off around Easter and what happened?
Google seems to be my best friend nowadays and I spent time on thousands of bridal dress pages, wedding tradition pages, wedding planning pages, wedding…pages.
Here comes the wedding maniac – that’s the new nick name my husband to be gave me shortly.
But that’s how women are, isn’t it. I would be scared if I’m not planning and checking and organizing and and and – I told him he has to appreciate it as a sign of my love for him and to have the day planned as best as possible 😉

I promise to try my best and write ‘updates’ from time to time.
Faithfully, Wedding maniac formerly Miss Faith

Stay with me…always!

Stay with me…always!Another stay…has come to an end…
For almost the whole last month we had time together, my husband was back home here with me and we had lots of things to plan. The wedding should take place in August and we will not be able to have an actual date until all our documents are submitted in May and reviewed by the German registry office.
Nevertheless we should have a plan in place by then on how to organize things quickly as we cannot move the wedding to a later date – all docs have to be ‘not older than six months’.
Besides I was working full time this time and had no holidays in between as these vacation days are also needed in August and September. A tough time where we had small fights due to me being stressed and nervous from work but even more lovely moments until deep in the nights.
You want to spend as much time as possible together and therefore the evenings were extended up to two or sometimes even later in the night. Snuggling up in front of a movie, talking, eating, just time for us. The result is a major lack of sleep and the knowing that it won’t be easier with every goodbye. No, it’s getting worse. I thought we will get used to it to be apart and then back together but the truth is that I can’t wait for the day when we have one home where we both belong to without saying goodbye for two months.
This evening is kind of strange as I’m back to the being alone status and I don’t like it.
Skype will be started later on and no more real hugs and kisses.
I will start to write more again during the next weeks now, at least this is time filled with sense and I know my love will read it over there.

Stay faithful!

Wedding brainstorming – part I

Wedding brainstorming – part IMy mind is crowded during these days with everything related to our planned wedding.
A wedding is exciting but what do you think a binational wedding is? I didn’t thought that it’s so hard to plan as you need to keep in mind the timeframe.
Biggest problem for us will be the final date.
As long as all personal documents from my future husband are under review we just can stay calm and wait for a reply. This reply is essential for the further planning as it could be good, means everything is ok and we can go ahead and schedule a date, but it could also be that we have to bring something additional and the whole package has to be send in again for a review.
As not even one of these papers has to be older than six month we are facing a tight schedule.
What does it mean exactly? It means we have to plan a whole wedding within a half year but we won’t be sure until around eight weeks before the wedding if it could really take place or if we have to start the whole process again.
Did someone ever planned a wedding within six month? I think that’s already a challenge but what about eight weeks?
The main problem is that we cannot invite someone more than eight weeks before as we will not have a date. And who will be able to confirm his or her attendance without exact dates?
Therefore we have no clue how many guests we will have, how much food we need or which location will fit.
A wedding planner will quit his job at this stage as its almost impossible to book a location within eight weeks unless you don’t care about how it looks like. I do care! The last I want for my wedding is a crappy location. To get out of this challenge we said we will have a small intimate celebration with just family and best friends around so that all will fit in the garden of my parents house.
This plan was nice until some became aware of our upcoming wedding.
The draft guest list went from around twenty five to fourth five within a couple of weeks.
It seems as if our loved ones are sure they will be able to attend without knowing a date, which is causing us the next problem. My parents garden is really so nice but it’s not a park!
Where to start and where to stop now? I have no idea, my fiancé will be here with me in a few days and I can’t wait to discuss all these things with him face to face instead of talking on Skype with interrupted connections from time to time.
Until then I try to stay calm and stop thinking too much. Everything happens for a reason and I believe in it even when reality let me struggle from time to time. As long as I can think it was fine in the end.
Faithfully, Miss Faith
