- Wedding: October 2012
Hi, Ladies =) So it’s been over a week since I’ve posted anything. My last rant was about my bridesmaid blunder, which still stings a bit, but I’ve taken it with a grain of salt- I have more important things to worry about. With that being said, I’ll move on. I have been super busy being a weddingbee lately. On Sunday we had our engagement photos done (pictures to come!) and yesterday we put the deposit down on our venue for the ceremony and reception. I feel like there has been a huge weight lifted off my shoulders when we booked the venue, pheww! But on a more important note: the other day I felt like I had a little epiphany moment, it had just hit me that I am right- smack- dab in the middle of planning my wedding. I am in the eye of the storm of planning the day that will change my life forever. I have been so busy with the little things like picking out Save the Date cards to making sure to choose the right color for our favor boxes that I’m forgetting to soak it all up. I reminded myself that I NEED to enjoy every little second of this journey and to let the small things go. When planning a wedding we brides can get a bit caught up in thinking that it’s the detail that everyone will notice- thinking a gemstone here or a gemstone there would actually make a difference. But really at the end of the day no one will notice if everything matches. It’s about him and me. It’s about OUR family. People will notice the love, the smiles, and the happily ever after. When FI and I first got engaged I stated that the things I did want to fret over was the food (because people will always remember if the food was delicious or terrible and dry), the DJ (because after dinner all the fun happens on the dance floor), and the photographer (because we will be looking at these pictures for the rest of our lives). And, I need to stick to that. Although it would be nice to have the lavish decor and what not but bottom line is that it just doesn’t matter. It’s not worth stressing over; not to me anyway. I also need to keep in mind that everything will fall into place, I just need to stay on track.
Have any of you had your mid-planning epiphany? What matters most on your big day?
