Wedding Update: The Details

Spend, Spend, Spend… I have never spent so much money in my life (excluding school tuition) than I have on this wedding! lol… Now, that being said, let me introduce to you the side of me that I haven’t really discussed often on my blog:  Hello, my name is Zaneta and I am a tightwad! 

There, I said it… I HATE spending money!  It’s not like I had a lot to begin with since I paid straight up cash for school … which I am proud of for not being in debt out of college, but it left me with a sad sad sad bank account lol.

I’ve been reading wedding planning websites and magazines because, let’s face it, I’ve never planned a wedding before lol… surprise! ;)  Most of them have said that the AVERAGE american wedding costs about $15,000 - $20,000… wowsa!  That’s a car!! OR a down payment for a house!!

To me, that is a lot of money for a wedding! I mean, I know it’s a special day, dont get me wrong!  I want my wedding to be gorgeous and a once in a lifetime event… but when it’s all said and done… it’s only 1 day!  I’d rather save as much money as possible… still have a gorgeous wedding… but still have money in my bank account so that in the near future me and my future hubby can have a down payment for a house.  I’ll share in a different post about some things that I’ve done to save some money … right now I just want to give you guys the overview of my wedding details!

I, Zaneta, am marrying my best friend, Joshuah,
whom I have known for almost 5 years and
have dated for almost 4 (come march 24th)


June 25, 2011
at the church that I have grown up in
with a reception to follow

My colors are Blue and Green (duh)
My 2 sisters are both my Maids of Honor
His brother and my brother are both his Best Men

We have a cake lady, photographer, and a professional pianist booked
I’m still shopping around for a florist, but I know the flowers I want

Those are the basics… If I left anything out, or you’re curious about any of my planning, just leave me a comment, or email me! I love talking about it!!  :)  I’m so excited to be marrying my best friend, and the love of my life!!  I now have less than 5 months to go!! YAY!!

148 days left

5 Months To Go!

5 months from today and I will be a married woman! :D  AHH! I’m so excited!! :)  I can’t wait til I can sit down and hash out an update of my wedding planning for you guys!  I’ve got quite a bit done, but still have quite a bit left I feel like! lol…  I sent my engagement ring back to get it sized down again… I think this time it will be the perfect fit! :)  I just want it to hurry and come back!! lol… February 1st by the latest is what they told me :)

Well, I just wanted to touch base with you all, and tell you that I ran outside for the first time this year! lol… Man, we’ve had some crappy weather!!  But today was about 37 degrees instead of what seems like the usual –5…  I was all excited because I could finally use my garmin forerunner 405cx that my fiancĂ© got me for Christmas and when I went to put it on, I remembered that I hadn’t charged it … drats! Maybe next time ;)

Well, I’m heading to bed… another long day of work for me tomorrow!  Which know that I’m paying for a wedding… doesn’t seem so bad ;) lol Goodnight all!

Trying to Catch Up

I have been really absent lately… absent from blog world, absent from eating healthy, absent from working out, absent from running, absent from sleeping well, and yes… even absent-minded at times lol…I’ve just been so busy with working 2 jobs, planning a wedding, and trying to meet with someone about going back to school… oh, did I mention planning a wedding?! tehe… June 25, 2011, here we come!! :)

It’s 2011!!  I hope everyone has had a great year so far!! ;)  What are some of your new year’s resolutions?  I didn’t make any… I’m sure I have some, like start my workout/running/being healthy next week and get into top shape for my wedding!  BUT I didn’t right out say “this, this and this will be my new year’s resolutions”…

I did register for this on Jan. 1st to start out my new year:

columbus marathon registration

That’s right… my first FULL marathon!!  And… it will be after I”M MARRIED!! :D  So I used my future married name ;)

I also got these for Christmas and I’m really excited to use them!


Well, I thought since I’ve been so absent, it would just be easier for you all to tell me what’s been going on with you! :)  So, what’s been going on?! :D
