As of lately, my mind has been completely overflowed with thoughts concerning our wedding coming up in a few months. If you've been married or helped plan a wedding, you know just how many details go into that single day, and how overwhelming that can truly be. Every little detail from what color the flowers should be to how I should do my hair is taking so much energy and causing me legit stress. June 13 needs to be the most perfect day of my life. And for some reason, in the moment, I'm letting myself believe that the color of a few flowers will determine if that day lives up to my standards. If every tiny detail isn't amazing what am I afraid will happen? Weddings aren't about putting on a show, they're about celebrating finding the one you want to spend your life with with all the people you care about. I want it to be the best day of my life because I'm marrying my best friend and not because everything looks beautiful, that's just an added bonus to have fun with! People always expect complete perfection for their wedding day, which is unrealistic for anything and will ultimately lead to disappointment. I know this all seems kind of obvious, but a lot of people, myself included, can get somewhat blinded by the less important parts of getting married and put what really matters on the back burner.
So by writing this I'm promising myself that for the rest of the wedding planning process, I'm going to try my hardest to not get overly stressed out. I want to enjoy the bonding of planning a wedding together with my fiancé. I just know that ten, twenty, thirty years down the road, we're going to be happy looking at our wedding photos because of how happy we look, not if the colors coordinate perfectly or if my hair isn't amazing. Above everything, if June 13 ends with Joe and I as husband and wife, it was a successful wedding to me, and I'll be so happy.
