Today I’ll take that Felipe is still sleeping and that my anxiety wakes me up at 6 in the morning, even on a rainy Sunday, to tell you something. Many of you already know it, and who’s read the page “Cris&Felipe” down to the end has probably noticed already.
The Brazilian part of this trip is a very important part. Not only because we miss a lot our country, families, friends and everything else. But also because at the end of two months there, it will be our wedding.
The idea of doing all this now began during Christmas last year, when we realized how we miss our loved ones and decided that for next Christmas we would be in Brazil. It will be the perfect opportunity for the wedding. When we come back to New Zealand next year we want to live in a house only both of us (no flatmates) and start a new life. Moreover, it will be wonderful to reunite families and friends after spending so much time away, and also because we don’t know when we’ll return to Brazil, with time enough to make this.
It was a few days before we went to Samoa. There was no celebration or engagement ring, but there was a video conference with my parents via MSN that was pretty emotional. Then it was my turn to ask permission to Felipe’s mom. I’ve never dreamed to marry like most girls, but suddenly I was sure, I was willing to celebrate, and I did the proposal. Each conversation with our families, was like a click inside and I thought “so it’s true, we will really get married!”. And the butterflies in my stomach were getting more and more intense.
It’s not very easy to organize a wedding remotely, and in 34 days we are going to travel, what will make it almost impossible. So I only need to thank my super-mom!! She’s been seeing everything for me there, while I cannot think of anything else other than the journey that is coming.
As we also are in a more-than-tight budget and we prefer to have something very simple, there are not too many things to organize. The wedding will be during the day, in some little farm near Curitiba that we are still not sure which, because we had booked one and now the owner decided to sell it and cancelled everything. I hope to find the bands and the dress during the trip, as we’ll pass by a lot of countries that have cool stuff and cheaper than New Zealand. The rest of the arrangements we’ll be doing slowly, we have 6 months until then, and 2 months to rush in Brazil until the big day.
I am a bit awkward with these things, guys… this glamourous world of weddings has nothing to do with me and I’m still trying to figure out what actually has something to do with me… so wish me luck!
I am also accepting tips and advises. Has anyone here ever got married during a trip?
