I love weddings.
I have always loved weddings and now i finally get to plan my own wedding!
It’s been just a few weeks since he popped the big question and now we are finally engaged! We’ll we are not ‘officially’ engaged yet since we haven’t had the rings blessed or had any kind of engagement party but we are getting married!
I am so excited. I have never been this excited about anything before. There are so many things to do and prepare for and so many decisions to make.
My wedding is going to be a great source of inspiration for this blog and i can’t wait to write about all of the new topics i have been thinking about.
Already i have been confronted with some interesting issues like:
- Which hand should I put my engagement ring on?
- Should we have an engagement party?
- What about the ‘logies’? Is this different to an engagement?
- How many bridesmaids should i have?
- Can i have married friends as my bridesmaids?
- And how many Koumbari should we have?
There are so many decisions to make and different people tell me different things about how things should be done. I know that this wedding is our wedding and i know that we should be able to decide whatever we want. Right?
Well, i also know that this is not always the case, especially with Greek families. In most Greek weddings, the whole family gets involved and it is not always the bride and groom making the decisions.
So what and who is right? What is the right thing to do and who should be making all the decisions? I’m not sure of the answers to these questions just yet but i think that i am about to find out.
I will keep you posted on my wedding plans and my controversial decisions.
