Just call me the “anti-bride.” This moniker is not to be confused with “Bridezilla” (although Lord knows I’ve had those moments), but is reserved for those woefully underprepared brides who should have really just eloped and gone to Vegas instead of having some elaborate wedding.
As of the 18th, Future Husband and I have two months until we get hitched and wow … everything is coming together – including the wedding invitations that I addressed by hand. Nothing says love like really bad caligraphy – but that’s just me.
FH is going to roll his eyes when he reads this, but I’m still struggling with the whole honeymoon idea. This week’s plan is to take a couple of extra days in June when one of my buddy’s gets married near Baltimore. It’s a neat idea because I’ve never been to Washington D.C., I’d love to go, I’ll (probably) be out there anyway for my friend’s wedding … but plane tickets are, like, $400 a piece. Amtrak tickets are a little bit cheaper, but what we would save in money, we’d lose with time. I haven’t even researched hotel costs yet.
Other plans have included Duluth (our wedding’s in April – can you say brrrr?), South Dakota, Door County … I don’t know. There’s a part of me that will feel kind of gypped if we don’t have a honeymoon, but then there’s another part of me that wonders where the hell this whole idea came from in the first place.
Anybody have any really good, cheap travel ideas?
