I decided to collaborate with my Groom for this post because why not?! He’s involved in this process too. So here are the top 10 things we’re most looking forward to on our wedding day:

Megan’s List:

  1.  Being married.

    It kinda already feels like we ARE married. We live together, we plan finances together … but I’ve heard that there is a shift. Also, there will be a huge weight off my shoulders/brain because we won’t be planning a huge event. A little less #MEGANZILLA? Time will tell.

  2. Hearing Timo’s vows and saying my own.

    … those vows that I haven’t yet written …

  3. Our first dance.

    We’ve been going to dance lessons and everyone better be super impressed with us. I really love the song we’ve picked out and I’ve only told a few people what it is.

  4. Having our families together.

    Timo’s family is coming from Germany and my family is coming from North Carolina and despite potential language barriers, I think it will fun getting to hang out with everyone.

  5. Wearing my dress.

    My dress is the one surprise for most people, but most importantly, to Timo. I’ve shown a few people photos of my dress, but it looks most awesome in person.


Timo’s List:

  1. Seeing my wife in her dress for the first time.

    No explanation needed here. 🙂

  2. Taking beautiful pictures to keep the memories on that day alive.

  3. Having a good time with family and friends.

    I haven’t seen many of them since our last visit to Germany in June 2016.

  4. Not having to think about the wedding anymore and all the planning involved.

  5. Finally, fully being the [MegMo] family, because I love our family. <3

    (Timo actually wrote his last name, but internet security is a thing, so I took some editing liberties … #sorrynotsorry)


When I was drafting this post, I didn’t discuss my list with Timo and he didn’t discuss his list with me. He just emailed me his five  things.
I’ll admit that I giggled several times reading his list because 1) we had very similar answers, 2) He called me the “w” word, 3) Timo had such good answers!


Megan emulates an old-lady in Charleston, SC. She's a fan of the oxford comma, all things Disney, most things chocolate, handy-dandy notebooks, earning medals for running, giving inanimate objects names, and laziness. Timo, Phil, and Meri alternate between driving Megan insane and keeping her sane. She knows it's all about balance, but if you could please pass the run, or the gin will do, too. When she isn't wedding planning, she blogs at Can I Decide Another Day?.
