What I Learned Most from Wedding Planning

What I Learned Most from Wedding Planning

It's definitely not how to throw a good party, either. Now that the wedding is a solid week behind me it feels like I'm finally out of the whirlwind and can reflect on the whole crazy experience. There's one big thing I took away from the planning process besides the fact that the wedding guests are really the worst part of the wedding. Let me drop some knowledge on you.

If you make the wedding a celebration of the two of you, it'll be a huge success. At some point in the planning process I stopped carrying about making it the perfect event. I just wanted to have people I enjoyed around me as I started the rest of my life with my favorite person. Everything about the wedding turned to be about Alex and I. It wasn't about the type of cake or how smoothly one event transitioned to another. We wanted everyone to be a witness to our love. And the day couldn't have been more magical.

I remember crying half a dozen times during my wedding day out of sheer happiness. There were many things that went wrong that day from most of my bouquet being dead to the ring bearer refusing to go down the aisle. Yet people still tell me it was one of the mos amazing weddings they've ever attended. To me it was the perfect little fairy tale. All because I stopped stressing about the failed chocolate-dipped pretzel party favors and focused on my love for Alex.

It seems like a no-brainer, but there's nothing like a laundry list of things to do all the while people keep trying to add randoms to the guest list to distract from the real point of the wedding. No matter what, if you focus on the love between two people, the rest really doesn't matter in the end.

Yours till the garter toss,
