a plan for a day

When I announced my engagement on small sight, I knew I wouldn’t turn this space into a wedding blog, but I also want to share a few moments along the way. Planning an intercultural wedding and marriage leaves a lot of room for learning. I spent one morning in September running between the American and German consulates in Amsterdam to finally learn that all answers would depend on the German province in which we will wed.

After phone calls, clarifications, translations, and waiting rooms, Marcus and I now have all our paperwork in order! It now needs to be submitted for approval, after which we will be allowed to schedule an appointment at the registry office in Berlin. What I thought would be the most difficult part has actually been quite painless.

I wish I had better news for the yet-to-be-printed save the date cards and the yet-to-be-booked venue. My older sister has a lot of event planning experience and is encouraging us to finalize the most critical parts. Maybe it’s because we’re planning a Berlin wedding while being in Amsterdam, but everything is just taking a lot more time. In between, I have been gathering some visual inspiration for that day in April, which I wanted to share. If anyone has some tips on wedding planning, I would love some insight! How did you handle all the details and planning?

  1. as I just planned a wedding from another country, I definitely understand that it takes a LOT of work! I did everything on the internet and it wasn’t particularly easy, but with some hard work it worked out and was amazing. Surely that is not great advice, but listen to your instinct and know that when the day comes, all the little things don’t really matter. What is important is that you marry Marcus and get to spend the day with people that you love.
