Best Planning Advice: I cannot stress enough how helpful "Eff it" was in planning for our wedding. It's easy to get carried away with DIY projects and plans, so keep yourself sane by narrowing down your lists to essentials and screw the rest if you have to!
Best Wedding Advice: Mr. Rucksack passed on this sage advice from his boss who told him to "Make sure you look out at your guests when you get to the end of the aisle and spend a moment taking it all in." Before we said our vows, I turned and looked at each and every person that was there to support us. It's one of those mental pictures I'll have forever and it was such a wonderful and overwhelming feeling to see all of our loved ones surrounding us.
Best Marriage Advice: This gem comes from my Auntie K who told me at the rehearsal dinner "My only marriage advice is 'Don't kill him.'" When I laughed and said that that shouldn't be too hard she responded very seriously "You'd be surprised." I'll keep this in mind as Mr. Rucksack and I go through this crazy journey together, for when I do reach the point when I want to kill him.
non-father-daughter dance I was so worried about? That, along with my private last dance with Mr. Rucksack, ended up being one of my favorite moments of the night.
|I'm still seriously pissed we missed this game of flip cup.|
What's we've done since the wedding: After an amazing wedding, the best honeymoon ever, and a trip to Minnesota to visit Mr. Rucksack's family, we've been happy to just relax over the past few months. Since we bought our house about a year before our wedding, not too much has changed with the exception of officially combining our finances. I'd be lying if I said that finance combining road was without some bumps, but we're mostly still in our happy honeymoon phase of marriage. It's pretty great.
And with that, folks, the Rucksack wedding has come to an end. Thank you to each and every one of you for reading, commenting and sharing the love. And don't think you've seen the last of me. I plan on hanging out here for a long time to come, reading the other lovely bees' posts and visiting on the boards.
Cheers from the Rucksacks!
