The Sweetie Chronicles

Fill your paper with the breathings of your heart. ~William Wordsworth

Wedding Mania

It's amazing how quickly I've gone into full bridal mode! I can't stop thinking about things like wedding location, budget, vows, pictures, everything. Hopefully my brain will calm down a bit soon and I can get back to normal life, but for now I am just too excited! Of course, it's not the wedding that excites me so much as the marriage.

In a lot of ways, nothing really changes. We already live together and share our finances. There's no virgin anticipation of the wedding night. Sure, legally things will change. This house will be partially mine after we are married. He will have rights to my car and my savings account. But to tell the truth, it's already that way now between us. However, something will change between us, even if it's hard to define with words. Marriage means a deeper level of outward commitment that mirrors our deep love for each other. It also means taking his name and becoming a family. It means that a child will follow in a few years.

We have not set a date yet, but I am thinking it will be 2009, and probably in the fall. That gives us a little over a year to save money and plan the wedding. I know I can't spend every day between now and then pouring over wedding websites and Caribbean resorts, but hey, it's my first week of being engaged and I'm going to bask in it for the moment. Wedding websites and resort pictures here I come!
