In the last few weeks, we have actually, finally started making real wedding plans. I am drinking in every drop of bridal bliss (read: champagne. Lots of champagne), from dress shopping to venue tours. The other day, I stumbled across this picture from my Instagram:
We have been engaged almost an entire month (what?! How did that happen??) and I am savoring every cake-flavored minute of it. Even though I am still tucked up in bed, I’m sipping on @fortnums Wedding Breakfast tea, reading our engagement cards for the 1000th time and flipping through the most amazing magazine ever – an issue of Modern Bride from 1959!

We had only been engaged a month, and I would re-read the cards from our friends and loved ones every day. We hadn’t made any plans yet, but I was still enjoying the early excitement. Now that we are making plans, part of me longs for lazy days with endless dreams, before budgets and guest counts became a “thing”!
