I have to tell you, I was so stressed, and even furious, the whole day before the wedding. More than any other day during the planning process!

But as soon as I got to the rehearsal and my Maid/Matron of Honor made me eat a granola bar, I started to calm down, let it go, and get the bridal glow from excitement.

If someone had told me that earlier in the day, I would have laughed… that’s how mad I was! Hopefully it will all get better for you very quickly!

Congrats! I’m sure it will be a much happier 4th for you πŸ™‚ I can’t say I know how you feel yet, but I’m sure it will all be worth it, really worth it, and you’ll look back somewhat fondly! Even with the speedbumps in my little bit of planning… I’m still trying sooo hard to cherish every mistake as just another part of my wedding!

I was pretty stressed and miserable, mostly because I let other people get to me, right up until I saw my Fiance on our wedding day. Then I forgot about all that unimportant stuff and just got into the right mindset and enjoyed the heck out of myself. And I bet you will, too. : )  Just remember to breathe!!

My big day is not here yet but I am going to tell you the things that I try to remind myself of everyday when I start to freak out about wedding planning.

Right now at this very moment you need to completely let go of your control and get out of planning mode. I am sure that you have very capable people who are going to be there with you and who know what is supposed to be going on. Let them do the dirty work for you.  Today is your day, enjoy it because it’s going to go by so fast!  Things are going to go wrong, that’s inevitable. But at the end of the day nobody is going to remember what went wrong (most people probably won’t even realize it if something doesn’t go perfectly). They are going to remember that you were absolutely stunning and that you married the love of your life, and they are going to be so pleased that you wanted them there to share it with you.

I am so sorry that your rehearsal dinner and the whole day didn’t quite go as well as you had hoped. And no, you do not have to be happy about it when things go wrong or when your guests are needy. Just remember what today is about and have fun. Isn’t it most important that at the end of the day you are a married woman and all of your guests had a great time? Those are the goals for my big day. Appreciate the things that are going to make your wedding day unique. Happy wedding day!!! It is going to be so amazing πŸ™‚

Deep breaths! My advice is to let go — as hard as it is. For all the months of planning, the day is so short. Don’t let yourself be bogged down with family crap-o-la because the day will fly by if you don’t. It’s time to let go and have FUN!
