Pre-Wedding...Bliss?

Thursday, June 13, 2013
Let's talk about what happens before the actual wedding. 
The proposal is like this high point of excitement and as the first plans take shape its still pretty fresh and you're excited. But then, you start realizing things... like, how much its going to cost to make your dream wedding come true, the fact that its nearly impossible to get your bridesmaids all together in one place or for them to agree on the style and cost of a dress.... and the realization that there are about 200 things that you need to figure out that you haven't even thought about before. 

Not to be a Debbie Downer or anything, but Pre-Wedding is super stressful, especially if you are planning yourself and on a budget. I'm telling all of my friends "Just elope!", however, I know that only 1% of them will actually do it. Most of us have been dreaming about what our wedding will be like since age 10. 
But here's the thing that nobody tells you: It never turns out exactly how you pictured it (unless you're a millionaire, in that case, invite me to your wedding ;) )

Do you want to know a secret? That its okay. Its okay if your wedding isn't perfect. Its okay to be stressed before your wedding. Its okay if one of your bridesmaids flakes out. Its okay if you have to switch maid of honors. Its okay if you have to switch locations. Its okay if you have to pick up your marriage licence the day of the wedding (yes, that happened). 
Because, that moment you walk down the aisle, all that matters is that your groom is standing there smiling (and/or crying), waiting to share your vows so that you can spend the rest of your life together.
