with Angella Dykstra
I'm a mom of three, a professional accountant, and an amateur photographer and writer. I am not a marriage expert. But my husband and I take "Til death do us part" seriously, and here I'll be sharing how we keep our marriage strong while we both do that insane work-life juggle.
Check out my Work It, Mom! profile and my blog, Dutch Blitz.
Jessica Biel is marrying Justin Timberlake after five years of dating. In a recent interview, she said that she’s so busy that she hasn’t had much time to put into planning their wedding. When he interviewer asked if Justin would be up for the task, she joked: ‘He does have incredible taste.’
When my husband and I got engaged, we decided to get married five months later. We had a small budget — no parental help — and did all of the legwork ourselves. We spent every Saturday looking at cakes and deciding on flowers and deciding on party favors. We also spent a few evenings making our handmade invitations, with the requisite vellum and raffia accoutrements.
We both worked together to plan the wedding, which is in stark contrast to many couples where the wife makes the wedding plans, along with her family and friends, and the husband shows up on the wedding day without having played a part in the planning process. This is not the case for all grooms, of course, but it is the stereotype.
How did it work for you? Did you plan your wedding together or did one of you do the bulk of the planning?
