Our wedding is about six months out and we’re knee deep in planning preparations. Our save the dates are out, or venue picked, and dresses obtained. Through this whole process so far there have been the fair share of headaches and people who want to help but just are being pushy. Yet through all this classic wedding planning woes, I’ve learned one very important thing.
It’s just a party.
At the end of the day all we’re really planning is a party. It’s not a life or death event that determines how our marriage will be for the rest of our lives. It’s just a gathering of people we love who want to see us succeed in a nice place with pricey chicken.
And you know what? Keeping that sentiment in my heart throughout this whole process has made it a million times less stressful. Sure I still want things a certain way and I have an idea in my head of what I want it to look like, but at the end of the day the wedding won’t be ruined if the centerpieces don’t look a certain way. All that really matters is that Alex and I celebrate our love for each other.
It’s a freeing thing when you realize a wedding is just one over priced party. Now I can actually enjoy the entire journey rather than being a ball of stress. Because I love the man I already consider my husband without the legal document. And that’ll make our wedding the best ever.
