If there is one thing I would advise ALL brides-to-be, it would be to STOP.
Stop planning. Stop giving every single moment of your life to the wedding. Take a moment and RELAX!!
The invitations will be there in a few days. The dresses will still be there. The flowers do not need your attention right NOW.
You need a moment to breathe, relax, even spend some time with your friends, fiance, or just alone.
I did just that this weekend. Jared was out of town preaching and I had 3 days to myself. ALL alone. For some, this is a nightmare. But for me, this is a dream come true. I love to be alone. If I didn’t like Jared so much, I would probably live alone and be totally cool with it. I just want some time to think, to do some introspection and really delve into who I am as an individual.
Who am I kidding? I played Lego: Harry Potter Years 1-4. Started Friday and beat it on Sunday. And you know what? It was awesome. I didn’t think. I didn’t plan. I didn’t create some fantastic template to make my wedding programs awesome. I just sat, in bed, with my dog, and played my new game.
So PLEASE brides. Take a break. Relax. Don’t be so uptight.
I also ate a lot of cereal.
And listened to Alvin and the Chipmunks sing “She Loves You, Yeah Yeah YEAH” and “Japanese Banana” and “Witch Doctor.”
Confession is good for the soul – and so is rest.
