It seems there’s quite a bit of angst out there in the wedding world hinging on what reasons we (as in all of us brides) want to get married. And, instead of my typical “photo-heavy” posts, I’m taking the text route (sorry friends).
Why do you want to get married?
It’s a valid question. Is it about the dress? Is it about the perfect flowers? Or how about the best reception venue?
Are those the things that are important to you?
Don’t get me wrong, some girls have dreamt of their wedding day since the day of their birth, but was it really about all of the perfect details, or was it about the perfect guy (or gal!)? Is your world going to fall apart if the florist made your centerpieces from hydrangeas instead of dahlias. Or that the flower girl stuck her finger in your cake during cocktail hour?
In a hodge-podge wedding world of details, tradition, non-tradition, big parties, are you, in your heart of hearts really remembering why you are getting married in the first place?
Do me a favor while you “Oooo” and “Aaaahhh” over the pretty pictures you find on this blog, and others like it, remember why you’re getting married. Trust me, I love the details, and still plan on having them at the wedding and pouring over them, but I know, each day why I said “Yes” to the pilot on top of that mountain. And, it makes me smile every. single. time.
So, why did you get married? What was it about your significant other that made marriage the word of the day?
