Well, I’m married. As of Saturday. I’ve been in a daze since Thursday, work had been stressing me out, I had to get a new dress last minute, I packed for our trip in literally less than an hour, and by the time we got to our condo I realized I had forgotten to do and pack nearly everything. My Mom told me that as long as I had my dress and the marriage license, the rest didn’t matter. Honestly, she wasn’t joking. Between some awkward moments, some frustrating moments, some crying in the bathtub moments, some “omg I feel huge and hideous” moments, some “I hate the looks of these pictures” moments, some “I’ve had too many drinks and I’m sitting beside my new mother in law, this is bad” moments… here’s my advice: the stressing, the freaking out, none of it matters. It just doesn’t. I stressed about the music, how things would look, how it would go, and I honestly don’t even think I heard the music. I was so nervous I barely noticed anyone that was there. What mattered was that moment, that really odd and exciting moment realizing that all of our big plans for when we were married… they were happening. All of our guests had a good time and no one noticed all of the plans we had made that we had forgotten to REALLY plan for last minute didn’t happen, etc etc. I’m still kind of in disbelief. It went so quick. There were alot of people in my family and his that I felt like I barely got to talk to. I honestly just felt kinda …. drunk off life all weekend. Walking around not remembering half of anything. ODD. Either way, for the ladies with the weddings just around the corner, relax and enjoy it, it goes quick and the small things don’t matter when the day actually comes. You’ll be way too preoccupied to care 🙂 OH and ps – you’re going to look beautiful, even if you hate your dress and nothing seems to come together, whatever crazy mindset you’re in – that day you will look beautiful, you’ll realize it eventually, take a deep breath, let the small stuff go, and realize this is YOUR day and it’s going to be AWESOME, regardless of the small annoying things that seem to come up at the last minute (and trust me, they probably will) 😉 Best wishes, bees!
