- Wedding: October 2013
Sorry if I’m about to offend some people, but I really just don’t get some of the crazy drama I see, on this site, on other sites, while shopping for dresses…. I don’t get it!
I’ve read about and heard brides freaking out of specific shades of ribbons, over creamed tomatoes instead of diced tomatoes, about centrepieces being 1 inch shorter than planned … the list goes on and on.
Seriously? I don’t get it.
FH and I are getting married. We are having a ceremony to make it official, husband and wife. Awesome. We have planned a nice day for our families at a sort-of-local winery. We have planned a ceremony that both reflects our roots/faith and also who we are as a couple, and have put most of our efforts into making sure our vows line up with our values.
We have some lovely things planned, but if they don’t happen, does it matter? At the end of the day, no. If so-and-so sits on the “wrong” side of the aisle, or the DJ plays a different song for our entrance, or the florist has to sub in one kind of flower for another, it will all be alright.
As long as 1) No one gets sick and 2) No one gets arrested and 3) FH and I are married, it’s all good. Fancy food or PB & J, it’s all good. Whether everyone shows up, or no one shows up, it’s all good. The wedding is the beginning, not the end.
It probably sounds a little flakey to some of you here, and again, I apologise if I’ve offended anyone. I’m just so tired of seeing people work themselves into a state of complete insanity because everything has to be PERFECT – including no one getting engaged, married or pregnant, no one ever saying no to their demands, and every little thing matching the dream they’ve had since they were 5. Shouldn’t it be more about the marriage?
