Finally -- a wedding date!

After a bunch of back-and-forth on our plans, Mark and I have finally made some final decisions about what will happen over the next few weeks!

We had originally planned on him arriving May 1st and marrying May 5th. But he needed more time to get everything together (which I already talked about in another thread). So we pushed his arrival date back to May 29, with a wedding date of June 2. Then we discovered that marrying so soon after his arrival would screw up the processing times for him to get a social security number (which he'll need to get a drivers license, among other things). So we pushed the wedding date back again.

Now we're getting married June 18 -- I can't wait!! :)

We've got a guy scheduled to perform the ceremony, and I've been shopping for a nice, spring-y dress to wear. A friend who's a costume designer has offered to make me a veil, and I'm going to make my own bouquet. I've still got to get our rings, but other than that, that's pretty much all we have left to do to get prepared for our wedding. :)

Anyway, I'm soooo happy we've finally nailed down these dates. It's bad enough having to wait for him to arrive, even worse not knowing what will happen once he's here. Mark's going to reserve his plane ticket this week after he gets paid -- yay!! :D

Cool! Congratulation! Remember to send us some of your wedding pictures. Bet you are going to go nuts over the wedding preparations. Good thing I've got my mother-in-law to take care of it all and going all nuts over it instead of myself. Hehe. Can't wait till your wedding! Have fun girl! ;)

Take good care of yourself and God bless,

Melly.
