The Distance Catches Up With Us

Being a long-distance bride is tough.

Granted, it could be worse. Ryan and I are only 3 hours away from our wedding locale.

But we are busy people. We sat down last weekend and looked at our calendars. We only have 4 free weekends the rest of the year. Oh... my... goodness.

Due to the constraints on our availability, we are planning one super grand extra productive mega wedding-overload-weekend... also known as the WOW.

The WOW will be in mid-October and will include:
  • Food tasting
  • Cake tasting
  • Ceremony music consultation
  • Registering at Crate and Barrel
  • Looking at rehearsal dinner venues
That's a lot of stuff to cram into 36 hours.

One exciting part of this weekend is that Ryan's mom will be joining us. We invited her along, assuming she would probably say no because it's so far away, but she said yes.

It's good because it will give her a chance to be involved in the wedding planning a little bit more (it's hard because she lives on the east coast and the wedding is in Chicago). She will get to see our reception venue for the first time, and check out my hometown.

My parents on the left. Ryan's parents on the right.

To say my mom is excited would be a gross understatement. She practically squealed on the phone when I told her the news. How adorable.
