It's still pretty crazy to think that the boyfriend/fiance and I will be getting married in about eight months. We've known each other for over four years, been dating for almost three years, and have been living together for almost a year and a half now. When I write it all down like that it doesn't seem like we have been together for that long, but I always had the feeling we could be something special from the time we met, and well a few years later, we're engaged!
When I was in high school I wanted to be a fashion designer. I loved evening gowns and wedding dresses and would rip out pages out of old wedding magazines at school with my friends and save them all in my sketch book. I gave up my fashion designer dreams before high school ended and thought I could study communication and work in PR for a designer instead. Clearly that didn't happen either because then I did my master's in ethnography. What?! Anyways, while I was in high school. I imagined that I would wear a Monique Lhuillier dress with a slight princess ball gown feel to it at my wedding and I would have had a banquet style dinner at a hotel downtown or at Brock House (for those of you in Vancouver). Well, the things I thought I wanted for my wedding ten years ago definitely aren't what I want anymore.
I'm sure I'll share more about our wedding when it starts to come together a bit more. The fiance and I have not made it very far with wedding planning yet. We have set a date, we know how much we would like to spend on the wedding, and we have a color scheme and a general style in mind. I feel like we haven't been able to plan very much yet because we don't have a reception location yet. As we will have guests coming from abroad, we would like to keep the party location in and around Copenhagen but we are also open to having a outdoor party at a summer house north of the city as well. If you know of any cool garden party feeling or industrial/raw feeling spaces to rent for parties/meetings/functions in Copenhagen, please do let me know!
So! We're at the beginning stages of wedding planning. There is so much wedding stuff everywhere, blogs, magazines, Say Yes to the Dress episodes, ah! If you have any tips or advice or any good recommendations for vendors in Copenhagen, I would love to hear them! And if you want to see some of my wedding inspiration and what not, check out my pinterest!
