We set our date! :)

The day we got engaged, the three things we heard most coming from everyone were;
* It's about time!
* When's the big day?
I thought, oh geez! I don't have a clue. My entire life, I've waited for this day. Day in & day out I've always dreamed about planning my wedding. I've pictured it in every month, I had many different colors, inside, outside, here and there. Now, that I have a diamond ring on my left hand... I didn't have a clue. However, I knew that 2012 sounded so far away. I know it's only a year, really but it was out of the question. Being I can start planning from the very beginning of 2011, I felt 2011 was definitely the year I will become Aaron's wife. [Smile]
Later that evening, after making many different phone calls and stopping at our parents & grand parents, we started talking very little. I asked him when he would like to get married. Aaron's words, "It doesn't matter to me." So, We started weeding out months!
Janurary - July was out of the question. Nothing really happens in August for us, so I was thinking maybe August, LATE August to give us enough time. Then it dawned on me that Aaron's sister Bridget, & her Hubby were expecting in August. We didn't know when at the time. [She found out yesterday, August 1st] But I immeditately crossed August out. I can't imagine her feeling the stress of bringing in a baby, getting sized for a dress, or being every bit of 9 months pregnant. Not just that. I can't imagine my stress of thinking about it & I know I would. My luck her water will break just as I'm walking down the aisle. Yikes!
August. October has always been a beautiful month. I LOVE everything about fall. However, we have a wedding to attend, that I am helping coordinate on October 1st & then a wedding of a close relative on October 15th. I do not want a Halloween Wedding!
September! A very busy birthday month for us.
Aaron first said, September 10th. My response, No way. That's Austin's [My nephew] birthday. I suggested September 24th. It gives me MORE time to plan.
September 24th it is!
Well, I went to Mama's for coffee yesterday and she brought something to my attention. She asked, "When is your...." Frown. I would be on my honeymoon when a woman's
best friend comes in town. Not good. The week before she comes in town is when I am Curella De' Ville, & all the dalmatians appear on my face. 17th. So I called Aaron and said September 10th it is. The more we thought of it, we got super excited. We would get married on 9.10.11 - How wonderful.
Later that day, talking to a great friend of mine. I just to happened to tell her. Frown.
Her voice became very sad when she said; Ah, I wouldn't be able to come. I'm in my cousins wedding that day. Frown. Later I talked to Aaron and we discussed it was totally okay. September 17th is perfect too. I'm just gonna have to do major facials so I won't break out before my wedding!
