You’re engaged. You have, and are, a fiancé. You are living on cloud 9 and starting to plan for your big wedding day. There are so many details to plan and your to-do list feels like more is being added while nothing is being checked off complete. It's easy to get overwhelmed during this time; to forget the big picture. From researching the most unique guest book idea to finding the next trend in wedding pallet colors, you easily get swept up and forget why you are doing this. I get it; I’ve been there before. I was a bride planning for my wedding not too long ago.
I want to encourage you to pause and breathe. While saying I-do is pretty sweet, today, tomorrow, and this period in your life is awesome, too. Never again will you be able to use the infamous “f” word (fiancé!). After you take your vow life doesn’t turn into a romantic fairytale. It is actually a lot similar to before. You work on your relationship daily, learn to pick your battles, and struggle with understanding what it truly means to put someone before yourself because you love that person ‘til death do you part. So while your planning for your wedding day and trying to get all the details cohesive, it's not the end of the world if something goes wrong. If the tablecloths do not perfectly touch the floor will anyone notice? No. If that one picture frame isn’t on the right table will it ruin the look? No. Enjoy this time and this process. Don’t let it turn you into a ball of stress ready to snap with the simplest question. Remember that your wedding day is about one thing and one thing only: the two of you saying I Do in front of your most loved and cherished guests. So as you continue through this process don't forget to stop... take a breath. Give your boo a kiss and enjoy it.
