Wedding Planning – Step 1, done!

Hello everyone! Last night, my fiancรฉ K and I had a Pei Wei dinner date (apparently one day late for national Chinese take out day <11/6>) before heading over to the Church and meeting with the marriage coordinator. 

Apparently they offer “small” bowls of a pad Thai. It’s not on the menu, but it might be worth asking about if you aren’t able to take home your leftovers but still want to eat the tangy goodness of fusion pad Thai. ๐Ÿ™‚  I love eating the peanut saucy chicken chunks and thick slices of tofu. Yum!

Fortunately, the Church still has our date available. The date was important because it was chosen by the Taoist temple in the Philippines based on our birthdays etc. My family is heavily into cultural traditions and this was very important to them. January 2019, here we gooo!

There’s quite a bit of prep work associated with marriage planning with the Church. We need to take a pre-marriage inventory test to assess our compatibility, attend a retreat or two, classes, etc. If anything, this experience will only make us stronger. 

And lucky for us, the Church will still be decorated for the Christmas season so we don’t have to worry about buying flowers for the ceremony! The colors of the Christmas decor are gold, white, and red (poinsettias). Any suggestions on a wedding color? We were thinking plum or a darker blue-green. 

Anybody have sweet memories from their wedding day? Any advice to share? We are all ears.๐Ÿ‘‚๐Ÿป ๐Ÿ‘‚๐Ÿป 

Cheers! Nicole

      1. Weddings are one of the most stressful things we do. If you make a plan, and stick with it, itโ€™s a bit less stressful until somebody drops the ball and ruins your plan! Sorry I canโ€™t help more

  1. That pad thai looks amazing. I’ve had the biggest craving for a big bowl of that from my favorite restaurant. But it’s not easy to get to & I haven’t had a chance to yet.

    We had to do some per-marital counseling stuff. It was one day, but the whole day, from like 8AM to 5PM. It was definitely interesting & I think gave us some perspective that we really do have it pretty together all things considered.

    1. Their pad Thai is pretty distinct! Maybe you can try making it at home – would make great leftovers ๐Ÿ™‚ wow, one day would be nice. The test is supposedly 1+hr, reviewing the test is 2 hours, I think there’s two 2-day events and then another event… but yes, I agree with you that it will give us some perspective. ๐Ÿ™‚ Thanks for your thoughts and have a happy day!


  2. The pad Thai looks delicious! My grandparents also got married around Christmastime and they also didn’t have to do a lot of decorating because the church was already decorated. Plum or a dark blue-green both sound beautiful! I have no experience with wedding planning, but enjoy the process! I’m sure everything will turn out just the way it’s supposed to be.
