IS IT OVER YET?!
I’ve asked myself this ten times today and it’s not even noon. Wedding planning has turned out to be one of the hardest, most stressful things I’ve ever done in my LIFE and I swear the only thing that keeps me going is knowing that at the end of all of it, D and I will be husband and wife and we can move onto the next chapter of our lives. I’m thanking my lucky stars that I was super organized in the beginning because I was able to get the majority of the planning out of the way. However, now that we are officially a month and a half away, the craziness is just getting started.
Ready for some honesty??? I feel like no matter how hard I tried to be organized and prepared for this time of year, more things keep popping up and I’ve lost my faith in my ability to pull this off. And not only am I second guessing myself during the day, but my dreams are now flooded with wedding nightmares, where everything that could possibly go wrong does, and all I do is cry. And when I wake up, I force myself to laugh because if I don’t, I’m afraid I will cry in real life too lol!
The not so funny thing is, when you first get engaged, everyone…and I mean EVERYONE that has ever been married WARNS you! I don’t know how many people told us to elope or keep it super intimate to make things easier on us, but when you’re newly engaged, sometimes the excitement takes over and you choose not to listen to those very honest and accurate people LOL. Which is why we (well……mostly I) ignored everyone’s advice and went BIG, mostly because we both have very large families and couldn’t imagine cutting it down anymore than we had. But because we are having a larger wedding, everything is 10x more work!
Although, as much as I may complain or feel discouraged, this will all be so worth it….right??? That’s what I keep telling myself. And it works momentarily, until the next issue pops up and I have to deal with it. So I’ll just be over here forcing myself to laugh and take things as they are, because that’s all I really can do at this point.
