Ok, I've been 'officially ' engaged for 5 weeks now. It's taken a while to sink in. We've got the date decided and the restaurant booked. It feels real. Yes, ladies and gentlemen, it feels SO real! Chris and I are getting married - can you see the silly grin on my face?
Right, maybe it should have felt real when he put the ring on my finger, or when we went to get my dress designed and tailored or when we were deciding on wedding ring designs, but no, it's taken 5 weeks. In fact I am not sure it's totally sunk in yet, but it does feel real, and I'm excited.
The pastor at our church is still on leave, and we're waiting till he gets back to see whether he can marry us. He gets back later this week, and I'm waiting to talk to him.
We're considering photgraphers right now, and I am trying to find someone to do my hair and makeup. It's kinda scary trying to pick someone out based on the pictures on their website. With the photographer it's not so bad as we get to go view their work before deciding. But with the hair/make-up person, it's a little scary. I don't want to end up looking like Dame Edna
Oh, and some time between now and April, I need to buy or make a veil. I would like a short one but it seems that nobody arund here sells anything shorter than elbow length. If I want a shoulder length one, I will have to make it. Anyone who knows me will know I am not much of a seamstress. I have bought some tulle to make a practice one. Wish me luck folks..
Oh, and in all that excitement, I nearly forgot - it's Chinese New Year. Gong Hei Fatt Choi, everyone! This is the last year for me to receive hong baos (little red envelopes with money in them) as I will have to start giving them next year when I am married. Darn! And to think I am not home to receive my last lot of hong bao! :)
