- Wedding: June 2012
I just wrote my vows.
I’m doing battle with my mother, who wants to spend all my money on flowers and makeup artists; I’ve been gluing my hands together making programs all week; I sliced my thumb on SCISSORS (seriously, that is possible??!) working on escort cards; my toss bouquet looks like crap; Fi is out of town and I’m lonely and irritable; in short, I’m about ready to scream “I quit!”
But then I wrote my vows … and finally remembered what this whole thing is about. So from now on, for the next 5 weeks til the wedding, I think I should keep them with me, so I can work on them or even just read them whenever I get too caught up in the whole Wedding Industrial Complex. Mad that RSVPs aren’t arriving fast enough? Read the vows. Stressing about money? Read the vows. Worried that Future Father-In-Law will drink too much at the reception? Read the vows.
This whole time I thought writing my vows would be the hardest part of this whole thing. Turns out it’s THE BEST!!!! 🙂 So if you’re procrastinating on doing it, don’t! Do it now! I think I’m gonna read ’em again right this very instant.
