Nuptials-The Tenacious Dee way...

When I turned 25, I knew there would be some inevitable events such as a mini-meltdown, otherwise known as the quarter-life crisis, the itch to do something epic before I turn 30 hence my applying to join the Peace Corps and of course the inundation of my mailbox with save-the-dates and wedding invitations. Everyone around me seems to be getting hitched! Don't get me wrong I'm super happy for all my schoolmates, co-workers, fellow bloggers, friends, etc. who are tying the knot, I'm just surprised at how it all happens at once.

One of my favorite pals, the beautiful Mallory, seen in the image below with the mustard top, is going to be her best friend's maid-of-honor in October and she is pretty much planning the entire thing. Mal is so creative and super organized so it only makes sense to have her as your wedding consultant.


Mal is also super detail-oriented and after spending some time with her and the future bride I deduced that this wedding is going to kick ass! As a joke, I told Mal that I was gonna pick up a stranger on the train and ask him to marry me just so she could plan an equally kick-ass wedding for me. Yesterday morning I received an e-mail from her and she included her plans for a wedding that she thinks would suit me well. Hilarious! The best part is that I would totally dig all of this at any event of mine, it truly fits my personality.


A lot of these are Chicago inside jokes such as the hot dog and corn (Mexican elote) as food, the dress being a Chicago Bulls jersey and the budget being a Jewel (one of our prominent supermarkets) preferred card.

I would love your wedding. especially "the cake", I haven't had one of those in years. It's simply worth getting married for (go kidnap a man)

Haha preferred card. I've been making a mental list of the friends I'd be able to help out the day I get married. Cooks, djs, photographers etc. I'm a nerd for saving money & a wedding is the ultimate challenge!
