I've realized that no matter how easy-breezy you want or think your wedding is going to be there is ultimately a bazillion things to think about and they begin to swirl together so you can barely separate them and know where to start kind of like this run on sentence which feels very much like how my mind is working these days.
I'm a planner kind of bride. I know how things should flow, look, feel... I'm used to planning get togethers and outings and thinking of all the details that need to be done. But I was just looking at my The Knot wedding to do list and had a brief "Holy Crap" moment.
I think this is exacerbated by the fact that we still don't have a venue. However, with any luck we may have a candidate! My mom sent a couple pictures last night of a barn that looks awesome and I am SUPER hopeful about. It's owned by my parents' old realtor who my mom is going to talk to about its potential.
If this doesn't work out we will just about be at the end of our Hermann, Mo., list of reception venue possibilities. This thought makes me shudder because I REEEEAAAALLLY don't want to have to start this process over in a different town - particularly one I don't know as well.
And I really want to have it in Hermann. It's so quaint!
And my poor mom. She has talked to about everyone in town and has run around just about everywhere trying to take pictures of places to help me see if it would work. If Hermann doesn't work out then all her work was for nothing too.
Come on barn!
