Yesterday was very exciting for Joe and I because we finished addressing our save the date cards and mailed them out. I know a lot of people don't get this excited just over save the dates, and some people don't even send them at all, but because our wedding planning will have stretched out over a year, each little step like this feels huge.
My sister, who is getting married next month, only planned her wedding in about five months. So I'm sure it feels different for her because she had to start doing everything right away. For me, I have to force myself to be patient and not try to rush things. It even seems a little early to send these out, but because most of our guests are out of state, some even out of the country, it seemed like a good idea to give an early heads up.
I'm checking things off one by one in my big pink wedding planning book and get so excited to see each thing that happens next. Dress shopping, parties, registering, sending out actual invites! I am so psyched for all of it! For now, its just a waiting, and being patient, game!
