While reading Mel’s 1 month, 1 week and 1 day before the wedding to-do list, I started having flashbacks of what all I went through 1 year ago at this time. (Our weddings are almost a year apart, so this time last year would have the been 1 month and 2 weeks before the wedding date for me.)
Let’s see … I had just moved. Mike was preparing to move. I was no longer working outside of the home, but still working long hours. I was dealing with Bridezilla (not me), whose wedding was still 4+ months away. I was finalizing things for my own wedding. 98% of it was done by this time last year, but since it was done, I was thinking of all the little things I could add. For me, that is a dangerous thing.
People thought I was crazy for planning a wedding in under 6 months. I knew it was actually for the best for me. Otherwise, I would have been hanging out at The Knot – one of the most dangerous places for brides to go – thinking of all the cool things I could “add” to my wedding plans. The same things I took off of the wedding plan list to begin with.
I am so glad that time is over. While I sometimes come across little things I wish I had done, I’m still glad that everything turned out exactly the way that it did.
I told Bridezilla after my own wedding that most guests don’t even notice the “little things” like bathroom baskets and things like that. Even the table linens and the centerpieces are often overlooked. Was I right? Thinking back to the weddings you’ve been to, what stands out to you as something cool that they did that you thought was neat? Or do you even notice those things?
