Over the past month, I have experienced the ups and downs of wedding planning. I know I haven't handled my emotions as well as I should have, but I'm keeping it together...I'm still sane!
My emotions (+ and -) list for the 1st month of wedding planning:
+The initial excitement after the proposal and the blingin' ring!
-The moment you freak out because you realize HOW MUCH work/planning you're about to have to do.
+The feeling you get when your friends "Ooh" and "Ahh" over your ring and proposal story!
+The moment you put on THE dress. The one you never pictured until you saw it on your body. The one your mom teared over. The perfect one.
-The moment you realize that all those gorgeous churches downtown are WAY out of your price range.
-Looking over the budget for the first time. And the second time. Third...
-+Moving money around in your budget to splurge in areas.
+The second you tour the perfect venue at the right price.
-The text you receive informing you one of your favorite people in the entire world won't be able to attend your wedding or make your cake.
+The butterflies you get in your tummy when you hear him tell you he loves you.
+The excitement of planning to decorate and make a future home together.
+The moment brilliant wedding inspiration hits you!
-The day you discover your favorite flowers/plants won't be in season.
+The same day you discover your dad can grow those out of season plants so you can have them in your wedding.
+The joys of picking out your Fiesta colors!
+The email that informs you that your favorite photographer is available on your wedding date!
The list can go on...
Friends and Family: Thank you for all your encouragement and ideas over the past month! You know we've (I) needed it!
