I just can't seem to escape the drama. I was in tears this morning because I am so overwhelmed. I...
....and going full force into planning mode!!!!
***WARNING!!! LONG POST ALERT!!!
I am so happy!!! After being SUPER stressed and losing hope, I finally found a caterer and she is affordable and has assured me that she will be able to successfully execute my "Upscale Southern/Soulfood" menu! This makes my heart smile!
You have no idea how hard it has been to explain to a "soulfood caterer" that i dont want bones in the chicken breast that is served at my reception, lol or explaining to a "non-soulfood caterer" how to make smothered chicken, LMAO!!! I found a caterer that can do it ALL !!! So as you can see im as happy as a piglet in slop!
Also, in an earlier post i stated that my FH and i were living with his Mom and Grandmother in order to save for the wedding. Well, we were supposed to be moving out next month, however FH and I decided it would be best to wait a few more months so that we can have everything for the wedding paid off and will have no budgeting issues as the wedding gets closer. My FMIL is errking my last nerve, but if i have to stay with her little longer to make sure our wedding is paid for, i have no issue. Its a small sacrafice with huge end reward!
Next Month we go for our tasting and to give the caterer our first deposit. In April we will pay the full amount for the reception and possibly ceremony venue(as they dont take deposits, you have to pay all or nothing lol). And then on to dress shopping, YAY!!
With just a little over a year to go, im feeling really good about everything! God is so awesome!
