- Wedding: June 2014
During wedding planning you probaly hear it a dozen times, “it’s just details…” but have you really taken it to heart? I had a dentist appoint exactly one month before my wedding (which is in 9 days!) and when I told that to the hygenist, she told me not to worry, that as long as FI were there, the rest were just details. Not much to do while having my teeth cleaned except to ponder that thought. At the time I had been wondering about how to decorate the church as it isn’t exceptionally pretty. I was thinking about what to put at the end of the pews, who was going to setup, who was going to take down, etc. and then it hit me – did I really need to decorate the church? No, our church will not be decorated and that doesn’t mean we will have the worst wedding in the world, just as a church done to the nines won’t make for a fantastic wedding. The ceremony will be fairly short and sweet and decorating wasn’t worth the time and stress. So many people have commented that I seem very calm, and for the most part, I really am. FI will be there, our loved ones will be there and the rest will fall into place, and if it doesn’t, oh well. Perfect weddings make for perfect pictures and believe me, they are beautiful and I hope that my wedding is captured as beautifully as others I have seen; however my main goal is for my wedding to be about a feeling. I want not only FI and I to walk away in a cloud of love, joy, and every other happy emotion, but for our guests to feel that way too. I want couples who have been married 30+ years to go back to a time when they felt so in love, for newlyweds to ensure that new glimmer stays in their eyes for a little while longer, and for the single people to know that their perfect match is out there. So the next time you are stressed about “details” just remember, that they are just that, details and I would much rather remember feelings than details. Happy planning!
