  So what seems like ages ago now I got engaged to my wonderful now fiancee Emilee. We choose to have a rather long engagement which I believe now was a great decision. During the first year we got a lot out of the way rather quickly. Emilee got her dress, we choose our venue, we picked out colors, and choose our wedding party. At this rate we felt we would be done in no time. BOY was I wrong. We took some time off from wedding planning as life picked up we felt we were ahead of the game and just needed a rest.  Now its 7months away, where did the time go? So this series of post will be about my perspective on planning a wedding, an overall survival guide and how to be a valuable member of your team.
  7 months away and I will be waiting at the end of the aisle for my best friend. But this weekend we are eating cake. This oddly enough was my favorite experience thus far go figure. We decided to go with a local store bakery to cut cost. The cake may not be as high end but trust me it is just as delicious and many stores can make them very beautiful. As we ate of course we could not choose on a flavor so we decided to go with cupcakes and have them all. For a 160 cupcakes and a small cake we are paying just over $200 which from my research is a pretty good deal.  The next part of our journey was revisiting our venue for the first time in a year since we choose it. We scouted the grounds took pictures and figured out all the details where we need to place signs have table set ups and decorations. Though this seems simple I promise you there are always going to be things you forget. Make list, check them twice and put yourself in the shoes of your guests.  Lastly today I tried to go look at suit rentals with my best man. We are choosing to go in the direction of suits rather then the formal tuxedo just for personal preference but little did I know Mens Warehouse does not rent suits. This was a shock to me so that part of our journey will remain open for now. So with the packed filled weekend coming to a close we will continue on this adventure another time. But I will leave you with this. As a groom this is your wedding as well. Do not let your wife plan everything herself. Trust me she wants you there. You will have a difference of opinion and you will not always agree, it will test yourself and your relationship but it is device to help you learn to compromise and grow stronger.
