Who says you have to spend an entire year preparing to have a decent wedding?
Ain't nobody got time for that.
I got my man. I got my ring. And then I proceeded to jump head first into planning.
There used to be some type of rulebook that said what a wedding was or was not. I, personally, have never been very good with rules. And, I've never been so great at the waiting game either. I'm ready to be a Mrs. and I'm going to do it in style.
Don't let anyone convince you that you have to work around them.
No, no. This is YOUR wedding. Don't bridezilla out, but also don't let your Uncle convince you that the SEC Football game happening on the same day is grounds to shut down and reboot on a later day.
DIY does not always mean you have to do it BY yourself.
You're going to drive yourself crazy if you attempt to do every project alone. You have your girls for a reason. Invite them over one night and have a craft party. You save time, and your precious fingers from the extra hot glue burns.
Don't loose sight of the good stuff.
This wedding planning business is some stressful stuff. Especially for those of us crazy enough to tackle it in six months. So, try to to smile, and have fun. Also, remember what it's all for.
Food for thought: It's your party, honey, but it's nothing to cry for.
