- Wedding: October 2010
I just wanted to take a moment, step back from the whole wedding and reception planning side of things, and chat a little about marriage, love and happiness.
It’s so easy to get wrapped up in being the center of attention (which I hate!) and needing to impress people. I can’t speak for others, but I, personally, am self consious about a lot of things (body, family, money, etc) I’m just an anxious person. Through the wedding planning, I’ve had some anxiety attacks and some really rough nights spent worrying about tiny details (like flower choices, tuxedoes, and dieting) and not nearly enough time savoring this moment.
This moment in time will not come again. And I am so happy to be in love and loved and be at the beginning of a long life with someone who promises to stick by me even though I have all those insecurities. The one person I don’t have to worry what he’s thinking, my partner in life, doesn’t care if I carry the best flowers or wear the best dress or throw the best party. All he cares about is getting married. And about that, he cares a lot.
Right now he is at the courthouse filling out paperwork for the marriage license.
And when 100 people are standing around, whether they think I look amazing or are thinking about how ugly my shoes are, all I want to be thinking about is him.
He deserves that. I deserve that. Nothing else matters.
