I am afraid of getting older. I am afraid of getting married. Spare me from cooking three meals a day—spare me from the relentless cage of routine and rote. I want to be free… I want, I want to think, to be omniscient.
Hi there! I'm sorry if you think I don't check your tag! I do, but it this particular ask "Thank you guys for all you do! Y'all a hero to us all! I was really craving for fics where stiles and Derek are getting married and saying vows to each other." the last update for getting married tag was 8 months ago. I'm really so so sorry that I wasn't clearer about having an update. :(
oh shit dude sorry but we only actually update if the ask includes the person asking for an update of the tag. no worries though here’s an update :))
Stiles is marrying her soulmate. Problems arise before the wedding and Derek finds himself unable to stay away from Stiles. With the wedding just hours away can they make it to the alter or will the disasters prove to much for Stiles?
Will slowly rubbed the temples on the side of his forehead. He swayed back and forth on his feet, praying for a quick exit from this torture.
“I think if we have a combination of the juliets with the garden roses near the altar…”
“Hannibal.” Will murmured
“But not too many, of course.” Hannibal either didn’t hear Will or chose not to acknowledge him.
“What would you like to have down near the chairs, some specie of Ranunculus?”
“Hannibal.” Will tried to inject louder, but no one was listening to him. He really wanted to leave this conversation. He had already suffered enough.
“Ranunculus? Don’t be absurd.” Hannibal responded with a faint laugh and wave.
Will was standing in the middle of Hannibal and their wedding planner. He stood there listening to Hannibal and the planner quip and laugh back and forth about flowers for about an hour.
He didn’t know why he was asked to consult on the flowers. He really could care less which flowers they decided to buy. As long as they looked nice and didn’t cost too much, which was a hassle with Hannibal’s expensive taste, he was fine.
“Will? Which ones do you prefer?” Hannibal held out the placard with the floor plan of their ceremony sketched on top of it with pictures of flowers attached to it.
Will sighed. He pointed at a blue flower pinned to the top of the page. “What about that one?”
Hannibal and the planner looked at each other. Will thought they were going to burst out in laughter at his “inane” decision, but Hannibal slowly nodded as if he were very impressed.
“I think the addition of blue corn flowers near the altar and a few sprinkled throughout the reception hall would add a nice touch.” He said partly to the planner as he smiled at Will.
Will half smiled back, completely taken aback that he had actually contributed to a discussion about some damn flowers.
“A nice rustic touch, perhaps?” The wedding planner added.
“A nice touch of my husband.” Hannibal winked at Will before walking with the planner toward the reception hall.
Will grinned back at Hannibal. “Can I leave now?” He nearly shouted after them.
“Of course not! We need your expertise for the table flower arrangements!” Hannibal playfully shouted back as they walked into the reception hall.
Will rolled his eyes, but he was smiling.
Ugh, I must truly be in love with Hannibal to put up with another hour of flower talk. He thought to himself as he ran to catch up with Hannibal and their wedding planner.
1. Think of traditions as suggestions. There is no right or wrong, just what you want. Nothing bad will happen if you decide to not have a bouquet toss, favours or your standard wedding invitation. One of the things my partner and I have cut from our wedding is having a cake, we personally felt it just wasn’t for us and thought it better we save the money.
2. Email, email, email!
It certainly is annoying, but you may just save yourself a few hundred dollars by making sure to get a good variety of quotes from an array of businesses.
3. Once you have placed a deposit, do not keep looking.
So often people end up experiencing feelings of regret once they have officially locked in things like their wedding dress and venue, thinking maybe something better exists. The reality is there is a million gorgeous venues and dresses, but what you have chosen is just as fabulous! So, keep staring at what will be yours and let yourself fall more in love with it!
4. Don’t rush decisions!
This is something that I have done on more than one occasion while planning my wedding. Whist I haven’t made a decision I regret, I definitely did go through periods of anxiety at some points simply due to rushing myself as if my wedding needed to be planned within 24 hours. Take your time and try to enjoy the planning phase as much as you can.
5. Don’t let pressure from others get to you.
This one can sometimes be quite hard as some people can be really pushy. But, at the end of the day I see it as your day, your choice. You don’t HAVE to invite your cousin’s brother’s auntie’s sister if you don’t want to.
6. Make a list of what things (aside from your husband/wife and celebrant) are important to you to have on the day.
For me, it was my photographer and having a videographer, so I made sure to plan my budget around these things so that I didn’t miss out.
