While I have had a fun year of planning with only 30 days until I become a Mrs. I’ve always kept in my mind..this is MY day. Some brides seem to forget the reason for marriage while they are too busy worrying about what the next person will do, think, or say about a decision that she has made about HER wedding. My Fiance and I agreed from the very beginning not to make our wedding bigger than our marriage. We agreed to keep a reasonable budget that we wouldnt loose sleep about at night or stress so much that we couldnt thoroughly enjoy every minute of our engagement together. We agreed to make our day live up to its meaning, OUR day and not worry about other opinions or thoughts, especially those that didnt financially or physically put fourth any efforts to contribute. While a time or two I did get caught up wondering, I quickly let that go and remembered that I am the one hosting a party for the people when the celebration should really be about my Fiance and I.
I’ve said these things to remind us all, to not get so caught up in the moments of planning your wedding that you forget all about your marriage. Also to ask, am I the only one that thinks about this kind of stuff? LOL

@specialklove: Preach it sista’!
And no, you’re not the only one. I had a meeting with a DOC yesterday because my Future Mother-In-Law seems to think we will NEVER pull this wedding off without one. After meeting with her I realized I was WAY more organized and on top of things than I (or FMIL) ever realized.
That brough the epiphany that this is OUR day. And I won’t let anyone pressure us in to more stuff and more stress anymore!
We’re getting married, joining our lives…does anything else really matter?

Great post! This is one of the things that makes me glad we’re having a long engagement. We can take our time, not stress about anything, and just enjoy the engagement stage for a while 🙂 We haven’t even picked a date yet, haha, it’ll probably be two years from now but that’s all we know.

I love this post! It reminds me of the last Lethal Weapon, when Renee Russo is being wheeled in to have her baby and she grabs the rabbi and says, “I just want to hear the words.” They get married right there in the hospital hallway.
That’s what I feel like right now, 6 months out. I just want to hear the words… I am SO looking forward to actually getting married!

You didn’t even need to post anything in the body of the post because the TITLE IS SO TRUE!! I ask myself this everyday!! Why am I throwing a party for you to celebrate something that I am choosing to do and why do you think that you can tell me how to do it!!
