I listen to a great station with great variety, and came across a song by the artist Dawes. There is a sectino of the song that goes:
Somewhere a pretty girl is writing invitations,
To a wedding she has scheduled for the fall,
Her man says, “Baby, can I make an observation?
You don’t seem to be having any fun at all.”
She said, “You just worry about your groomsmen and your shirt-size,
And rest assured that this is making me feel good,
I think that love is so much easier than you realize,
If you can give yourself to someone,
Then you should.
Cause it’s a little bit of everything,
The way you choke, the way you ache,
It is waking up before you,
So I can watch you as you wake.
So in the day in late September,
It’s not some stupid little ring,
I’m giving a little bit of everything.
As I work on my planning, I thought this song was pretty meaningful. Anyone else find songs and lyrics that really stand out to them as they plan and prepare for their wedding?

@KatieJean: Awww. Those are neat lyrics.
This song always struck me when I was doing wedding stuff–I guess because of the feeling of preparing for the future and looking forward. It’s an old song (like 1700s):
When I with pleasing wonder stand/ And all my frame survey/ Lord tis Thy work, I’ll own,/ Thy hand thus built my humble clay.
Although at times the Mom/MIL clashes made me feel more like Led Zeppelin’s “Communication Breakdown” 😛

@MsJeep23: Hahaha! I know what you mean. I’ve already started to prepare myself for any communication breakdowns. I’m going to have to download that into my Wedding playlist for when I’m making my DIY projects 😀
