This past month has been crazy busy! With wedding planning, family visits, work, and healthy food planning- my head has been spinning. I can’t even believe that it’s been two weeks since I last wrote a post. All I can say is- “I hope all of your lives are going well!”
What is on the agenda now? The first thing to do would be to workout like crazy until my bridal shower- which is coming up very soon. Workout like crazy until my wedding- which is less than 3 months away. Clean up my apartment. Keep an eye on the housing market. Plan my meals. Spend time with family and friends. And lastly, but most importantly, pray more.
Typing all of these things that I need to do makes me feel overwhelmed. I now know what my friend Sara went through the months before her wedding. She was tired and her mind was spinning a million miles per minute. She even admits that she doesn’t remember the details of her wedding day because there were so many things going on. When she first told me this, I thought she was crazy- how can you not remember your own wedding day? But now, as I go through the planning process, I completely understand. My coworkers ask me almost everyday, “How was your night? What did you do?” And I always respond, “It was good. I don’t really remember, but I bet I worked on wedding stuff.”
Is this how it should be? Is this what I am supposed to be feeling months before my wedding? Or am I supposed to be more composed? Sometimes I wish I had decided to elope or have a small wedding with only immediate family. Planning for a larger wedding brings about so much pressure to have everything perfect. But the thing I seem to loose sight of is- that God gave me my fiancé and that marriage is what is in the plan for us. The fact that we are ready and willing to commit to one another, for life, is amazing in itself. Even though the planning and preparation is becoming overwhelming, the end result will be worth while- and I know that God will bless us for it.
