How to Protect Your Own Wedding from Overexposure


Everything happened so quickly.
When my man asked me to marry him in May I was shocked. We had talked about taking this next step together but I had never thought it would happen so suddenly. Then again, why wait. It was hard for me to comprehend the changes that will come with an engagement, let alone a marriage. I told my best friends immediately, and even told my mom {of course}. Friends that I wanted to tell personally I waited, but then the opportunity never came and so I did it impersonal and kind of weird over text. Not my best, I know. One of my dear friends doesn't know yet and I am soooooooo eager to tell her BUT, she just got married Saturday afternoon and I did not want to tell her before just because I felt the timing was wrong. Once she is back from her honeymoon I will gladly tell her the news {if you were wondering, we live in different cities and she got married out of state and I sadly couldn't attend but made up for it with an elaborate wedding gift - that is what friends are for, too}. 

Anyways, back to my blog title.
I told everyone that I could, and thought would actually be happy for me.
There were a few that weren't happy and that is when I thought I won't be pushing details down their throat. I wouldn't tell them where and when we wanted to get married. I just couldn't. Well, if you missed it, we got married on August 29, 2014. It was a small, intimate and quiet wedding in our lovely Californian wine region. I didn't want the news to be spread all over social media and all but one {why oh why} of my friends/family respected my wish. There is just something about my life I feel you don't need to know. I would love to share my happiness with you, don't get me wrong, but I don't think you need to see all details about my life. I don't want to see yours either {just a hint, a touch, something}. Well, and that is why I have chosen to share a little bit of my special day with you today. I cannot believe it's been over a week, and literally happened last month. Time sure flies. I cleaned up the other day and saw a few remnants of our special day and thought it was time to slowly let the cat out of the bag...just for a few minutes. Once I get all photos in I will try to write a little wedding post. After all, this is my blog, and I see it as a journal, a notebook, something that I can come back to and be happy about.

So, how to protect my own wedding from overexposure? I choose to share details...on my own time and terms. That simple.

So, stay tuned.

In the meantime, I hope you had a great weekend and start this week with a gigantic smile. It is September, school started, and pumpkins are coming back in fashion. Love it already!!!  

xoxo

very cute. And you have the right to share or not share as you please. People get awfully pushy about weddings and what you should/ shouldn't do. I think do what you want! It's your day after all. Congrats again!

CONGRATS!!! I'm so happy for you! Sorry that your wishes weren't respected :( Despite that I'm sure it was just perfect. And if do decide to share details, I'll be excited to read along/see them ;)

And thank you for the sweet comments about my dog. Compared to your uncle, it seems so insignificant, but nonetheless, greatly appreciated by me :)

It's nice to be able to keep some things to yourself, it makes the day more special.

I can totally understand wanting to keep some things private.
