that is a good question, i don’t think anyone really has the answer.

i think it’s ok to do the best job you can, planning a wedding because that is one task that is set before you right now. so i don’t know that those things you names are ‘not important’, they are just things to get done. however i agree that it is easy to become too obsessed with them. . . or just to get overwhelmed and see it all as a burden instead of a blessing! that is kind of where i’m at right now.

Hey RainStorm!

I often find myself with this issue.  I don’t think that God is opposed to such things, as long as you don’t put them above Him.  I always find that no matter what distractions are in my life it’s crucial to my faith that I try and read something from His word at least once a day and pray when before I do anything else that God would open my eyes to Him and all his glory throughout my day, regardless of what I am doing.  If you come to Him, He will come to you.  So I would suggest dedicating time to God and/or his word each day.  Let’s be honest, sometimes it can seem like a hassle when you have no time or don’t feel like it, but each time I’m finished I know it was the right thing to do, and it gives me an awesome start, boost, or end to the day.

Goodluck sister!

It’s my pleasure! Also, I hope she will say yes too! It’s always good to have encouragement physically around you, as I’m learning it’s a good thing to be interdependent with other Christians if you can find them around you.  However, if she for some reason does say no, He will be with you every step of the way, and you can always PM me for anything.  Goodluck again! ๐Ÿ™‚

After reading your post I think you should not be worried about losing your focus! Your faith in God is real and – in my opinion – is separate from the wedding planning process, where you have many practical decisions you need to make to shape the day. As long as he’s in your heart, you will not lose focus!

It can be tough to figure out how to make God the center of the day, but just focus on the covenant you are making. If you get caught up in things like, should I have scripture on my invitations or on the thank you notes or both, that’s time that you could just be thinking the marriage and God in that instead.

So while it’s easy to get tempted to get caught up in the details, don’t stress about “Christianizing” the wedding details either. 

Also, I really like this website: foryourmarriage.org
