There are about a million and one things to think of when you start to plan a wedding. Now that we’ve got the place, there are so many questions. We tried to tackle the invitations and reception decoration questions today. Adrienne came over to lend us her creative juices. We tried some fun ideas, but trip to Michael’s (then to his sister, Joanne’s) left us with more ideas of what wouldn’t work than what would.
I started letting myself get stressed out about wedding stuff. Not bridzilla, mind you…more like discouraged. I napped with Oreo, but I couldn’t quite turn off all the questions and ideas that swirled through my mind during house church.
Rafa and I talked on the phone while we were each going home. I told him about how I was just thinking a lot, how I really needed his opinion on things, how I was letting myself get weighed down by all the options…
He stopped me and I’m going to try to paraphrase what he said to me –
We’re not getting married for anyone else. We aren’t getting married to show off what great taste we have or to try to outdo every other wedding. We are the ones getting married. The reason why we’re inviting other people is because they’re our witnesses who will hold us accountable. It’s just a wedding…we’re getting married.
I. love. him. This is why I’m marrying him.
