Fast forward, please

I'm not sure when or how this happened, but I'm already over wedding planning.  We don't even have a date or a venue yet, and I'd like to simply skip ahead to the the vows. I think the hardest part is consulting everyone and making sure we're all in agreement, with all those little details.  I bet there's a reality show about this on TLC.

I'm taking a day off of wedding-planning-bliss to complain, because some days are like that.

We need to pick a place and a date, and be done with it - so we can move on to more things to muddle over, like a caterer and color schemes.  My silly childhood dreams of picking out favors, white glazed almonds, matchboxes, laser-engraved napkins, and huge bouquets of flowers are totally sullied with the reality of the situation.  No wonder everyone initially wished us to "enjoy our engagement."  Well duh, of course you will enjoy it because you're planning your wedding, possibly one of the best days of your life.  Nuh-uh. Not true.  These well-wishers were more so commanding us to enjoy it because they know the truth behind it.  They know the potential for total disaster so the need to emphasize enjoyment is eminent.  Maybe my dramatics are kicking in, but now I know why wedding planners exist.

I'm not even  touching on the advice relayed to me about not fighting over wedding details.  Great advice, if only humans lacked opinions.

I think scent/memory association here would be a total FAIL. 
I'm picking out the best perfume I can find for the day of the event, instead.
Too bad life's not like my DVR.

    See,... I have to confess, I have a deep, paralyzing fear of wedding-planning. But you make it look so fun! I think it would be abnormal for you to plan the whole thing without having days where you just want to throw your hands up and scream. But it's an event, and there's lots of pressure, so those days are to be expected. And since this is your blog, there is NO better place to put such feelings!

    You can do this tho! And in the end it will be absolutely amazing. No matter where, or when, or with what favors, or colors. Because it truly is a day dedicated to two awesome people and that's all that matters. :)

    Okay that was my cap on positive-wedding-pep-talk for at least a day or two so I hope it can get a smile or two. Keep on keepin on! xoxox!
