Girl Meets Bulgaria

Musings of an American expat in Bulgaria (with detours in Utah and Alaska)

A Change of Plans


Yep. It’s another wedding update!

I am a HUGE procrastinator, so while Vince and I have decided on where to get married, we haven’t really made any other plans.

A few months ago, we decided to be married here in Alaska. It’s where we met. We have some great friends here. It’s gorgeous. However, once we arrived and started to talk about what we both wanted, it became more and more clear that having our wedding in Alaska probably wasn’t the best option. Additionally, with both of us working 6 days per week, there wasn’t much time left over to plan a wedding, however small it may be.

While we do have awesome friends here, I think I would regret not having any family (other than my mom) present for our big day. Also, between multiple trips to Fairbanks to buy clothes and supplies, trips to Nenana to apply for (and then pick up) our wedding license and reception/food costs at the lodge, it just wasn’t making sense financially.

That is why we have decided to get married in Las Vegas at the end of September.

The biggest perk, of course, is that my close family and friends will be able to attend, which makes me oh-so-happy! But it also makes more sense time wise as Vince’s flies back to Bulgaria on September 28th. Getting married in Las Vegas means my family gets to spend more time with him before he leaves.

Deciding on the location is about all we have done, unfortunately. We are yet to find/book a ceremony and reception site, make reservations, buy clothes, etc. My head starts to spin just thinking about it all.

I am sure my mom and aunts will be a big help though (wink wink!).

I’ll post more updates as the planning continues. Wish me luck!
