Well, first of all, congratulations!
And I think you're wise to look into the bits that you can organize ahead of time, such as locations (those both sound amazing, btw!).
I just have one question: Are you soon going to begin driving yourself and everyone else completely mad w/ "OMG dresses gowns tuxedoes flowers cake DRESS DRESS DRESSSESSSSSS??"
Bc. If so, um. Warn everyone concerned to lay in a supply of Valium well in advance, or you may find yourself murdered in your sleep by a cabal of your bridesmaids, mother, mother-in-law-to-be, and assorted friends and bystanders.
Half the immediate known universe seems to have gotten/be getting married this spring/summer/autumn in my immediate world. Have spent since about Feb. going to bridal showers, being in 1 wedding and gonna be in another over my strenuous objections but wtf. Also there have been ridiculous amounts of parties bc of same.
Yours sounds low key-ish and lovely.
Not a thousand people nor tons of high-powered anxiety, right?
Good for you sweetie.
Chyia, contemplating my srsly ridic gown imma hafta wear in this upcoming wedding (blergh)
