Last week, I had dinner with my friend, bridesmaid, and wedding-planning buddy… whose wedding is now only 4 weeks away! And while we got to catch up on her craft projects and remaining to-dos, we also had a great conversation about life and marriage, and we were both reminded what this entire process is all about--getting married!
In all the excitement of planning a fabulous party, it's easy to lose sight of what really happens on that day. It may only be 30 minutes of the day, but among the perfect flowers and adorable details (which, don't get me wrong, are still tons of fun and worth the effort), you will marry your best friend. You will be creating a new nuclear family. You will be starting a fabulous new chapter of your life.
My fiancé said something the other day that really resonated with me: "We're getting married, not wedding-ed". I play this in my head whenever I stress about a wedding detail because ultimately, it will be a perfect day, no matter what.
And in case you don't believe me, take a look at these blissfully happy brides and grooms.
