My new query for the day is: Are there people out there who have second thoughts about their spouse-to-be based on things that surface during wedding planning?
It seems to me that planning a wedding reveals so much about what you value and how you live life. With Matt, this is definitely true. Luckily (knock-on-wood) everything that has surfaced reiterates that we're very aligned with each other. We have a very similar vision of what we want the event to feel like. We usually build upon each other's ideas. Maybe every pre-engagement couple should be forced to plan a major party together before committing to tie the knot?
And, to add icing to the cake (real butter icing, not that plastic wedding icing), I feel so, so lucky to be joining the Bradford family. Matt's parents are spending a week visiting us in Denver (from Bloomington), and they are so helpful and supportive about this whole wedding gig. They respect and support our DIY desires.
