Worth the wait...

Well this blog is a little bit late. I don't think I can ever have another birthday to top the one I had this year. Jonas and I got engaged on April 4th! He did it right before my birthday party. Short, sweet, and simple. Just a few lines include. "I promise to put God first in everything and constantly pray over our marriage and our family." " I love you so much." " Will you marry me?" We are so very excited to start our life together. We have chosen August 14th as a wedding date! I know...its less than 5 months away. We finally feel like God has given us the timing we have been waiting for.


I have to say I am a little overwhelmed right now because I don't have time to sit and relax. I am a little more a head of the game then most in my position. We already have a ceremony venue. All of the bridal party attire is picked out for the most part. Of course, I already bought my dress.( I actually bought it January 31st :P) My flowers and ceremony decor are planned out. Fabric for the handmade boutonnieres has been bought. Invitations are picked out. Bridal Cake and baker have been chosen (We aren't doing a real cake!) We still need to nail down photographer and take care of the reception.

I have always known that weddings are expensive. If I was smart I would have started saving for my wedding day when I was 5 like on Bride Wars. I am praying something miraculous happens financially so we can pay for everything. To be honest I am a half step away from opening a donation fund at a bank.

After a lot of deliberation we have decided to have a dinner at our reception. Jonas will have a lot of family coming in from out of town. We feel it would be rude not to serve them dinner after going out of their way to support us. Finding a venue for the number of people we are inviting has been tough on such short notice. I don't see us getting out cheaper then 10k... I don't know how we are going to pay for it...but I know it will all work out. Its times like now that I wish I had parents with a disposable income. I am grateful for what I have. I have never wanted for anything! I know this will all work out how it is supposed to.
