So when my husband recently re-proposed to me and asked me to have a real wedding so we could renew our vows, I said yes. (Of course!) So now, we have to start planning and figuring out what we need to do. We're shooting for late next summer/early fall. I am even thinking about having a wedding themed blog event! How cool would that be?! I actually have a gorgeous, $2000.00 dress that I purchased and never got to wear. Until recently, it wouldn't even fit. I've lost a lot of weight in the past year, so I am excited to get to actually wear this stunning dress!
But with a wedding comes something else we didn't get to experience: A Honeymoon! I am almost 100% certain we won't be able to afford a trip. So I will enter as many trip sweepstakes as I can in hopes of winning the dream vacation. (Hey, a girl can wish!) In the meantime, back in the land of reality, I am trying to find a way to have a Honeymoon type experience at home. Can it be done? I am sure I can come up with something special. We have awesome friends who will more than likely be happy to take the kids for a weekend, so now I just need to find a way to transform my home into a Honeymoon worthy "love nest."
I was recently browsing EdenFantasys, an adult shop that has everything under the sun for couples. Sure, they have a huge selection of sex toys and things a bit more on the wild side, but they also carry a fantastic selection of more romantic items. Items that might just be PERFECT for a poor man's Do-It-Yourself Honeymoon! I absolutely love their sensual love category. There are tons of great romantic products like candles, massage oils, and even bath and body products to help create the perfect mood for romance.
I especially like the idea of getting the Honeymoon Carry On Bag, which is full of adult goodies that are sure to make for a memorable evening. Or maybe I should go a more classic route and pick up some simple massage oils and aromatherapy candles, along with some rose petals to sprinkle in the bathwater to make a spa-like oasis. Or perhaps one of the great chocolate kits at EdenFantasys? My husband is a major chocoholic, so this would be quite the treat for him!
So as you can see, I have a LOT to plan for in the next several months! A real wedding ceremony, a Honeymoon, and everything that this entails. I am a bit clueless as to what I need to DO. I have never planned a wedding before! I am definitely excited, though, and am so glad I will get to marry my best friend all over again! Hopefully this time, we'll have a few more people in attendance and will have the ceremony we had wished we could afford 4 years ago. Any good wedding suggestions for someone on a tight budget would definitely be appreciated!
