Planning a wedding is hard…planning a wedding 8900 miles away from the location, is even harder.
As I said before, my sister is getting married in December and her wedding will be taking place in South Africa. She is currently in the Midwest doing her MBA so on top of being in school and trying to keep everything together, she is also planning her wedding.
When I was younger, I always envisioned me having a hand in the planning of my sisters wedding. Being there when she picked her dress, when she went to pick out floral arrangements and bridesmaids dresses…you know the whole shebang, but as life turned out that’s not how things were meant to be. Ever since my sister left to go to college at Stanford University at the age of 17 (I was 15 at the time), she and I have never lived in the same state (except for a 1 year stint I did in Dallas, Texas with her). So my dreams of being hands on in the planning of her wedding was just a dream that should have died many years ago lol.
Since I realized that I would not be able to help her with planning her wedding, I felt that as the maid of honor, I should try to help with something. So I am helping in the planning of her 30th/Bachelorette party that we are having for her next month.
As we did last year we are headed back to Dallas and have invited all of our friends to come with us. Last years festivities were amazing. We drank, we laughed, we danced and most importantly, WE ATE (Because if you dont know by now, Dallas has some bomb restaurants).
