Melodramatic much?










A.Wang sweater, CR shorts, CC bag, Sam Edelman sandals

Had someone told me how stressful planning a wedding was going to be, I would skip the getting-married and head straight for already-wedded bliss part. We might just elope, or maybe not… After 3 months of searching we (more so I), found a venue! The space is ideal for what we have in mind, outdoor wedding with indoor amenities – no porter potties, YUCK! We still need to secure a caterer, florist, photographer and the list goes on (and on, and on)!
And lastly, I’ve been kind of quiet here (& Twitter) because I’m in the midst of combating a stubborn cold. Illness + wedding + blog + work = DYING… A little melodramatic much?

  2. Um, yeah, I feel you.

    Of course, I think your job of planning a wedding is that much harder than ours, because you're glamorous and I'm simple and I didn't give a crap about having awesome decor (we also didn't have the budget for it).

    This venue reminds me a lot of our castle, and I'm so glad you got something equally as dramatic and awesome as you are! Go garden weddings! (Church weddings are so standard. Yawwwwwn.)

    We need to skype date so you can tell me all about it! I can't wait to see how you have it all planned!

    Get better, babe!

  8. Yay congrats on the venue!! I think that's the most important part - of course the dress too but you have to have the perfect location! Don't stress, try and enjoy wedding planning as much as you can, it all goes by so fast. I wish I could plan one every couple years :P

  9. You look absolutely radiant and glowing in these photos - despite the stress of planning a wedding. Hope you feel better soon! I've had a terrible cough that's been keeping me up at night and I can't figure out if it's allergies or a cold.

  10. Is the background where the wedding will take place? It's absolutely gorgeous! I'm selfish b/c I don't want a wedding myself (ditto the stress, planning, $, etc etc) but I love seeing pics of other people's weddings. I know yours will be stunning so I can't wait to see photos :)

    Take care of that cold and I hope you feel better soon, Khatu!

  11. Good luck planning your wedding! If you do elope, go back to the Cayman Islands! :p

    A pair of lace/crochet shorts are on my list! You make them look so good!

  12. Planning a wedding is tough work! I tried to strip all the tiny things out of mine and just left room for dress, hair, makeup, venue, and music. That's all, and it's still a lot of stuff to do and decisions to make. Good luck on the rest of it! And if the background is any indicator of where you'll be getting married,
    you're off to a magnificent start.

  20. What a stunning venue and I would never have guess you were fighting a cold! I've never planned a wedding but friends have said the same think you're saying..."I shoulda eloped!"

  21. i totally know what you mean about being melodramatic. wedding planning on top of normal, everyday life is a lot to handle! hopefully you can get some rest, take a deep breath, and just enjoy the ride. you'll be in post-wedded bliss soon. :)

    meanwhile, i'm loving those shorts!

  33. I would say wedding planning gets easier...but it really doesn't...I think the researching part takes the longest...we all want good vendors! You look adorable! I am totally regretting not buying shorts like yours that I saw in the beginning of the summer.

  39. My parents got married at this same venue 25 years ago! It must be fate that my first time reading your blog, this is the article I StumbleUpon.

    This venue is a North Shore gem. When I finally tie the knot, this is my ideal spot, as well. Congrats, and it will be a gorgeous wedding!
