I feel like I have two weddings I want to share with you all. The first wedding I got into was on Valentine’s Day. It was one of the best I have ever attended and was the first one I attended after my dad had passed away. I was so into him being there. He was such a big part of my life and the two of us really connected.
For the second wedding I got into (which is actually more of a “first” as I got married in a church in a town that we had to cross a small bridge over), I decided to have a big, lavish wedding with my fiance and my mom. It was a bit more intimate and more traditional so I had to plan things differently.
The wedding was a huge success and I was so happy with everything. Everyone was so happy and the whole thing was so stress free. The food was great and it was the first time I had ever really sat down and had a proper meal. It was great.
It’s not that I don’t like to plan things for the future, I just don’t like to plan things for people for long periods of time. My fiance and I took a few weeks off from work to get married and have the wedding day, and we did it all during the holidays so it wasn’t that much stress.
Yes, it was stress free. But it was also a great deal of planning. Not planning to get married, but planning for the future.
Now, I am aware that there are plenty of wedding books out there, but I chose to write my own to make sure that I knew exactly what I was doing and where I was going. I didn’t want to make this book a chore or too time consuming.
I spent a lot of time at my parents house in the last few weeks working on the wedding details. I wanted to get everything done so I wasn’t caught up with anything else and put my mind to something else. But I don’t think I was working on it at all as much as I was just relaxing and taking my mind off the wedding.
I spent the last two days after my wedding planning everything for the wedding. Everything but the day, but I did make it through the day. I did not have a wedding planner. I did have a few people helping me, and I spent my last day with them all by myself. I had no idea that my wedding was such an important day. I had no idea.
I mean, to be completely honest, I wasn’t even planning the day or anything. I was just thinking about it so much that I had a hard time focusing on other things. I have no regrets about that, though. I love my wedding and it was everything I could have asked for in a wedding. I wish I could have spent more time with the other bridesmaids and the groomsmen, but I understand how important that day was to them.
To begin with, I am so proud of myself. I did not want to spend the day making speeches (a terrible idea I know) or worrying about what my family was going to think of me. Everyone else who got married is like that. I got married because I had nothing else to do, and I knew I would be OK if I left my work to be with my partner.
