CB and I don't fight that much, but I brought up the cost of a photographer and lawwwd help us we were in a full blown argument. The kind of argument that you can feel you're wrong in, but you've come way too far and you've fallen way too deep and you can't dig yourself back out. I wanted to end the argument, I really did, but I wasn't physically able to do so.
We were laying in bed and my body said, go over there, snuggle with him, just end this ridiculous disagreement about how much we should be spending on a photographer. My mind though? Well, my mind wouldn't program my body to move. My mind said BE MAD. BE VERY MAD. DO NOT GIVE UP, DO NOT GIVE IN. Let this fester as long as possible.
As it turned out, the photographer argument turned out to be a good thing because I think we both voiced our opinions and came to the conclusion that this needed to be a FUN process, not a stressful one. The second we don't have fun planning this thing, we will make a conscious effort to step back and remember it isn't about the cost of the photographer -- it's about me and Drew--- or CB --- or whoever I marry that day. LOLS!
Staying within our budget is our number one priority. I have had this vision for our wedding that I am very VERY serious about, but every time I tell someone they think I'm joking.
Like, they literally laugh and say, "OMG you're hilarious." They then bring their giggles to a halt and look at me again, waiting for me to tell them the real plan.
No no, that's my plan. Why is it so funny?
This brings me to my next point. I BELIEVE THAT THE BRIDE AND GROOM SHOULD BE ABLE TO DO WHATEVER THE HELL THEY WANT TO DO AT THE WEDDING.
If a couple want to release doves into the air as they finally kiss, release doves. If a bride wants to wear a black dress, wear a black dress. If you want a puppy petting farm, get a puppy petting farm -- (wait, that's a great idea, writing that down).
My point, there's no weird thing to do. It's yall's day, do yo thing.
So--- with that said----
I'm not sure why everyone is laughing at me like I just told THE GREATEST JOKE OF ALL TIME when I say I'd really like to have Pizza Hut and a self-serve keg of beer.
Why is that funny????????????
