I can’t quite remember the quote but it’s something like this:

Don’t let the process get bigger than what the final product is intended to be.

ex: If I spend hours worrying, changing, fixing, redoing, starting over and stressing about programs….well the programs are only going to be used for one hour of the whole wedding day! Why let the process get so much bigger and out of control.

Anyway, it helps me put things in perspective when I start to freak out.

In the end, the most important part….I will repeat …the most important part is saying “I do”.  Everything else takes a back seat.

Good luck,….try not to stress.

Miss Planner,

I found it!  I am not kidding when I tell you I spent 15 minutes looking for it before I finally gave up and paraphrased…..and then…

Well, I was looking at past blogs and I found it! …I found it HERE on Weddingbee! Ha! My interpretation was a little different but a bit the same.  

Words to Plan By

It’s by Mrs. Yorkie who’s quoting Darling Dexter.  Here it is.

“Don’t let the details become bigger than the purpose.”


Good luck …and once you read her thread you’ll see, you’re NOT alone!

Great advice! Being 5 weeks out now, I definately needed to read that. My guy keeps saying when ever I’m stressed, “St. Thomas, St. Thomas” which is our honeymoon destination so that usually makes me laugh and calm down-at least for a little while!

What helps me keep perspective is maintaining other interests/hobbies as I plan. I just had a completely wedding-free weekend recently, and it was glorious 🙂
