I can’t tell you how excited I am for the big day to get here. James and I have been engaged for about a year and a half. It’s been great because we’ve been able to spread the planning process out and really enjoy every moment. But, it also feels like we’ve been engaged for an eternity at this point. We’re beyond ready to celebrate with our family and friends!
With that said, I’m also getting to the point where I’m ready for the planning process to be over. Don’t get me wrong, I’m so glad we’re having a DIY wedding that will feature so much of our personalities. We’ve worked hard on little details that we hope our guests will appreciate. But, it’s crunch time and it seems like we still have several projects to complete.
At this point, we just have to let some plans go and accept that they’re not going to happen before the big day. That’s really hard for me to do because I’m a perfectionist and a total people pleaser. But, when it comes down to it, our guests won’t care whether or not there’s a custom photo backdrop for them to Instagram or personalized favors for them to take home.
It’s so easy to get wrapped up in the details of the wedding rather than the reason behind it. Over these next two weeks, I’m trying to take some time to breathe and remind myself that no matter what happens on our big day and no matter what projects do or do not get finished, it’s about the love James and I have for one another and the people who are supporting us along the way.
Friends, family and each other — that’s all we need for a perfect wedding day.
