For those of you who don't know, which might be all of you who read my blog I have a new wedding date. Exciting, I KNOW! Brandon and I are getting married September 20, 2008. Now before I go on about the new wedding date I need to get a few things straight for those of you who were confused or heard rumors about my wedding plans.
My original wedding date was Nov. 17, 2007. Now, I have heard everything under the sun when Brandon and I changed the wedding date. Rumors were going around that the wedding was canceled or Brandon and I broke up. Where those rumors started I have NO IDEA but its always frustrating when rumors get started and they are clearly not true. Brandon and I have been engaged for almost 2 years, long time, I know. But as these 2 years have passed I really have been happy that we have been engaged for this long. So to all you speculators out there who doubted us, SHAME ON YOU because we are still together and happier than ever. Now back to the whole changing the wedding date issue. The reason why Brandon and I changed the date was because we both wanted to finish school first. Why we didn't think of that before we picked the first date, I don't know....maybe we were just excited about getting married so we jumped into things. Also, while planning the wedding I was going to school full-time, working full-time, and had other things going on in my life as well as Brandon's that were really stressing us out to the max. We wanted the wedding planning time to be fun, exciting, happy- although it was fun, exciting, and happy at times, it truly didn't feel like it was the right time. Being the adults we were , we decided the best thing for us was to push it back. Also, getting married on 11/17/07 we wouldn't of been graduated yet, no job security, no real income...pretty much nothing. We didn't want to rely on our parents for money or go through life as newlyweds living penny to penny. Brandon will be graduated this summer and unfortunately I won't be done till next December. I just had my audit for my major and I am getting screwed over on some credits that I have from ACU so that pushed me back another semester. I was very upset when I found this out but someone told me something that really helped me get through the anger. She said maybe it's meant to be for you to graduate Dec. 08, there has to be a reason why, you might not know why but to everything, there is a reason. So right now, I'm banking on " there is a reason why I am graduating Dec. 08". I'm trying to be optimistic, haha! Hopefully Brandon will get a position with a good company once he graduates and we can live closer to campus so I don't have to drive 30 mins everyday to class. So pray for Brandon as his college career comes to an end and he embarks on a new beginning of finding a job and working in the real world.
So for the wedding planning, everything is pretty much DONESKY! I have a dress, the church, the reception site, photographer, bridal portraits, engagement pictures, bridesmaid dresses, colors picked out... everything that plays a huge role in the wedding has been accomplished. I am now in the process of scoping out invitations and what not because that really is the only "big" thing left to take care of for the wedding, besides the guest list, which is going to be a huge issue, but oh well. I like to get a head start of things so I don't get stress, that is why I am already looking at invitations and all that stuff.
Brandon and I are happier than ever and I can't wait to be his wife and be able to have the name Kellianne Barron. Although September 20 seems SO FAR away, it's not. It will be here before I know it. I will keep everyone update on the wedding plans. I wish I could show you pictures of my dress and all that fun stuff but Brandon might read my blog so I better not disclose anything on here!
I'll leave you with one of my favorite engagement pictures of Brandon and I.
