First off, I have to say I’m sorry for how long it’s been since I’ve posted. I’d like to throw out the excuse that I’ve been super busy at work, and wedding planning – but there’s no excuse that makes it okay. Alright, guilt rant over.
We’re about three weeks out from our wedding date, and running around like crazy people. It’s funny when you think you have everything taken care of, then you realize that there is still SO much that needs to be done. I like to think I’m going through the hectic-ness of it all, so you don’t have too. Here’s three things I’ve learned while last minute wedding planning.
1.) Make a “TO DO” list – With Check Boxes!
As humans, we are way more likely to do something if we write it down. Personally I like to see a hand written TO DO list of things that need to still be done, and there is nothing better than that satisfaction of checking something off the list. Write everything that needs to be done out, so you can visually see when you’ve done something.
2.) It Doesn’t Have To Be How Everyone Else Plans A Wedding
People are often shocked at how low-key we are keeping our wedding. We’re not even having a DJ, or a professional photographer. I think we need to keep in mind that our wedding is what we make it. I don’t want to feel pressured to spend thousands and thousands of dollars on something I don’t feel to be super necessary. If you don’t feel it’s that important, then it’s not. Period. Point. Blank.
3.) It Doesn’t Have to be Perfect
Yes – everyone dreams about their wedding being the best day of their lives, and it will be if you make it. But I often tell myself that not everything has to be perfect. Not every little flower pedal has to match, and not every napkin has to be folded the exact same way. At the end of the day, you’re there to celebrate the love of you and your significant other, and that’s all that matters.
