Happy New Year! I can hardly believe it has already been 3 months – three whole months – that I’ve been married to my best friend.
Our story is one that I’ve shared before, but it never gets old to me. We dated for 13 months before we were engaged and then we spent 21 months planning our perfect wedding. And I don’t regret a single moment of our wedding (except for the part where our kids were both so sick that they could barely walk down the aisle) or being engaged. I enjoyed every moment of our journey to marital bliss.
When I saw this fun infographic by my friends at Wedding Paper Divas (who went above and beyond to make sure that every. single. piece. of my wedding stationery was simply perfect) I spent a good 10 minutes pouring over it to see where we stacked up, such as —
When we said “I love you”? Less than a month – but only by 3 days. I thought that Morgan wasn’t feeling well – but it turns out that he was just really nervous because he knew he wanted to tell me that he loved me. So I kept asking him “are you ok? Is something wrong?” Finally he blurted it out in response to one of my concerned inquiries by saying “FINE. I’m totally in love with you.” According to this infographic he was not alone – 41% of people say those three little words within the first month.
Did you send a Save the Date card, postcard, or magnet? We sent Save the Date magnets from Wedding Paper Divas, of course!
Our wedding colors? Navy blue and white with a hint of poppy. According to this infographic, blue is the most common color for weddings!
Our honeymoon? Bora Bora in French Polynesia! Meaning we are right on target with 55% of the world who choses to honeymoon someplace tropical.
So how did your engagement stack up? Check out the infographic and share what you learned with me in the comments!
