Being a Bride: 5 Thought

This is not my wedding dress...just one that didn't make the cut.

So the day is getting closer and I have a few thoughts and bits of advice about getting married. Here in no particular order are the things I have learned along the way.

-Never try to sell and buy a house in the same 3 week period that you are getting married. You don't have time to cry, stress, and pull your hair out about one thing because there are five others happening at the same time. Every single day. The good news is, I didn't have time to be a Bridzilla because I have too busy being a buyerzilla. You think it's easy trying to make a ginger happy when you are messing with me on my dream home?

-Don't worry about 'stuff'. The great thing about having all the house buying problems has been that the wedding planning has been nothing but a distraction and a welcome one at that. I never have worried about anything going wrong on my wedding day. I know it probably will. It isn't a big deal. As long as he makes it, I make it, the minister makes it, and our families make it, we are good. We have the rest of our lives to work on getting to perfect.

-Have your dream wedding, whatever that is. I'm wearing cowboy boots under my dress and I have just enough sport related stuff at the wedding that you know, it's me getting married. It's not my mom's idea of a perfect wedding but short of having the ceremony at the Ballpark, it's mine. Since I got engaged at the Ballpark, I'm good!

-Realize in the end that it isn't about who can't or won't show up but about the people that love you as a couple and have been there to support you individually and as a unit. They will also be there in the future. All that truly matters in the end is that love wins.

And last but not least you realize, OMG, I'm getting married!!!

I can't imagine all the stress you've had these last few weeks. But I hope you get to enjoy the next few-- the last as a single woman! :) And you make a beautiful bride, even if this isn't THE dress. :)

Yes to all of this. Especially the one about having YOUR dream wedding. I've seen too many brides and grooms freak out over whether or not so and so in their family will like a decision they made about the day. I'm like, "who cares? It's your day, not theirs."

I think there is something to be said for being older when you get married. So much doesn't matter. You know that and respect that when you are older. You know who you are too. My thought was, in 20 years everyone is going to look at the pictures and either see classic or overdone. I may as well do it my way and hope it still feels right.
