I have recently started reading Live Simply Love (check out the blog, it’s great!) and in one of the blog posts Merritt writes about the craziness of wedding planning and how you get sucked into the ‘wedding planning vortex‘.
I was thinking about this and thought I’d share my take here.
We had 3.5 months to plan and (in part) thanks to a fantastic spreadsheet ‘someone’ gave me – we were able to hone in on the important details and cut out what was not important.
Plus we used the short timeline to our advantage, saying “sorry – we can’t do that – not enough time” when some individuals tried to pressure us to do this or that – items unwanted or not in the budget.
And while looking back there is one particular item I would have probably done differently / shelled out money for – mostly, I’m glad we saved money.
At the end of time – that one item does not define my husband & I – Christ defines us. And a marriage honoring him is infinitely more important than one wedding day disappointment. (Full disclosure – 7 months in, this the truth I keep reminding myself with. I’m still trying to let go of a small disappointment and cling to truth)
