An Idiot's Guide: Surviving Wedding Fairs


I'm getting married!

Fine. We are getting married, DTM and I. But being the self-centered princess that I am (uh, hello, I named my blog Christia's World, so yeah, what did you expect?), I still say "I am getting married" whenever I tell people the news.

Re-staged proposal shot, because it was too dark in the theater where he proposed that the actual pics were pitch black.
Anyway, once I told my married friends about DTM popping the question, they all told me what I desperately needed to do first to prepare for the wedding. Let me try and list down what I remember:

  • Get a wedding planner.
  • You don't need a wedding planner, you are a project manager.
  • Go to all the wedding fairs!
  • Do NOT go to more than 1 wedding fair.
  • Set a date first!
  • Set a place first!
  • Choose a theme.
  • Choose a color, themes are tacky.
  • Book a church, they get booked 1 year ahead.
  • Book the reception venue.
  • Find the perfect dress.
  • The dress should go with your theme.
  • Go to Bridal Book.
  • Go to Weddings @ Work.
So with their very helpful and not at all confusing suggestions, I decided to start off my wedding planning by attending a wedding fair.
Some of my confusing friends, part of the proposal-night surprise. Confusing or not, I still love them.
