We’ve been working toward this trip for months now. Countless emails, phone calls, spread sheets, and folders have gone in to setting up this trip. It’s the Wedding Planning trip to Tahoe and it’s a big one! We are finalizing decisions on the ceremony location, the reception dinner location and menu, the rehearsal dinner location and menu, the photographer, DJ and potentially making decisions on the florist and stylists. We are also staying in the hotel we’ve chosen for our wedding party so we can decide if they will fit our needs. We have so many things to consider and so many decisions to be made in a three-day time frame next week. So much time and planning has gone in to this, and so much rides on this week’s trip, it feels like it should be stressful.
But it’s not stressful.
First off, it’s a trip to Tahoe. I don’t care what you’re going there for, it’s really hard to feel stressed when you go to Tahoe. It’s one of the most beautiful places on the planet and right now it’s covered in fresh powder. Even though we are not going to have time for skiing or snowshoeing, I’m still looking forward to being in the mountains.
Another thing that makes this trip exciting is that my parents and my soon-to-be-inlaws get to finally meet in person. I’m very excited about the opportunity to bring our families together, even if for a short trip. I really do love that we’ll all get a chance to enjoy Tahoe together and having them both there to help us with some of these important decisions is priceless.
The wedding isn’t until October, but time seems to be flying by and the Big Day will be here before we know it. I know I can’t wait. Even though it has made things more difficult to plan, I think Tahoe is the perfect place to have our wedding. We began our romance in Tahoe, I proposed last year in Tahoe and, in October, we will be married in Tahoe.
Now we get to start thinking about where to have the Honeymoon!
