I have been waiting to write todays post for while now, and it is finally here! I am going to be sharing where we are getting married, when, and the planning thus far.
As the picture above gives away a little, Matt and I will not be getting married in the United States. We will be saying I do in Jamaica!! Our wedding will be at the Ocho Rios Sandals Resort . I could not be more excited, we will be getting married in a gazebo that overlooks the ocean. This might come as a shock to many after seeing my wedding dress post, since I choose a ball gown. But That is my style, and I think you should always stay true to yourself no mater where you are getting married.
We thought about getting married in the states, at a church, and they would have been great. But at the end of the day Matt and I really wanted to make a memory with the people that are closest to us. We are only having 14 guests, and I couldn’t be happier. I feel uncomfortable in large groups, so this way I get to spend a lot of time with those close to me and have a unforgettable memory. However when we get home and move into our new home, we will be having all of our other friends and family that could not make it over for a large cookout.
When Are We Getting Married?
Matt and I have been dating for over 5 years, so we both are ready to finally get married. If any of you have husbands that work for the railroad you will feel my frustration here. His vacation is chosen “for him” at the beginning on every year. I didn’t want to wait until 2018 to get married, so that meant taking advantage of his vacation time this year. Matt and I will be getting married in less then 50 days, on May 8th. Yes that is a Monday haha, but when your in Jamaica, who cares what day of the week it is. Matt is too cute, he has a count down on his phone, I think he is maybe just as excited to go to Jamaica though as getting married haha.
I can’t wait to take yall with me to Jamaica to experience this important part of our life with us!
