The wedding that was postponed

Nov 11, 2011

I'm gonna get sappy up in here today. Sorry. I'm pregnant. You've been warned.

Many of you may not know this but I started this blog two years ago under a different name, with the intention of it being a wedding planning blog. Things obviously changed and while I have a ton to be grateful for now, I can't help but think that today we would be coming back from our honeymoon. I would be Mrs. C. I would still be on a wedding high over our super fun outdoor wedding last Saturday, 11-5-11. It was the perfect date to me and I often prayed the weather would allow for us to be outdoors and as it turns out, the weather was perfect.

It's silly to dwell on this type of thing but being in blog world has introduced me to so many of you wonderful ladies, some of who have had gorgeous weddings recently or are getting married soon and it's a reminder that I would've been part of that Fall wedding club too. But I know the reasons why our wedding was postponed and I'm actually grateful we postponed it or else we'd be in a stressful situation right now. AND I'd be getting married 6 months pregnant. Not drinking at my own wedding? Um no. That was my entire reason for having a huge blow out. ha!

So now that the wedding date and honeymoon dates are behind us, it gives me the opportunity to have a new focus on what life is like NOW. And my life right now makes me ridiculously happy. We're still happily in love, we're buying a house and we get a baby girl soon. I do believe everything happens for a reason. (Maybe that reason was to give me a built in little flower girl since I could never decide on one? ;) I can also say I'm grateful that I got my perfect proposal back in 2009 and at least got to go through the craziness of wedding planning for a bit. But things are perfect as is and I know our wedding will come at a much better time!

P.S. If you're signed up for me and Ashlee's Fall swap, the package deadline has been pushed to Monday since the Post Office is closed for Veteran's Day. So don't stress, you still have time! :)

It's amazing how one minute we think our life is heading in one direction and all of a sudden it U-Turns on us! I feel everything happens for a reason! You have so much to look forward too!

Longer engagement = more time for planning one awesome party!!

Sarah @ Scissors and a Whisk said...

*hugs* I can relate. Matt and I have been engaged since May '10, and it's been a long wait.

That's great that you're optimistic about the situation. Now that the date is literally in the past, you can focus on now -- your growing family.

You're so positive! I know it's cheesy and everybody already said it, but I definitely things happen as they are meant to! I'm sure one day you'll look back and you and Ronnie will be able to say, "How perfect did it end up being that we didn't get married in Nov. '11? The time and way we ended up really doing it was so perfect..." :)
