Bride-to-be Blogger Jennifer: The Halfway Point

So right now, we’re about halfway between our engagement and our wedding date — actually, a little closer to the latter. I really can’t believe how quickly time is passing by and, to be honest … I can’t believe how much I am enjoying the planning process!

As much as making each decision weighs on us, we are having a lot of fun and learning even more about each other throughout this process. Like a lot of couples these days, Anthony and I live together — we bought a house last year — so I thought it would be cliché to say that we feel even closer than ever … but it’s honestly true. Cheesy, but true.  I’m so happy that he is taking part in making these decisions with me, too. He’s hands-on and shares his opinions openly. It truly will be our wedding — not just a frilly reflection of what I want.

A friend of mine got married over the Labor Day holiday, and her advice when she returned from her honeymoon just last week was not to stress about the planning. She said the day goes by so fast that you really need to stop and enjoy every minute. So far … so good.

How involved in the planning is your groom? Who else is helping you plan for the Big Day? Do you feel overwhelmed or are you enjoying the process?
