August 1, 2015 was a pretty magical day for me—it was the day I married the love of my life. Our wedding day was everything I dreamed it would be and there’s nothing I would change. My husband and I had a quick engagement—less than 6 months. In those 6 months time was spent on my end stalking blogs for any and all wedding posts and I spent a lot of time reading over them. Having just single handedly planned my wedding I wanted to contribute to the wedding blogs with my own content. For the most part (and until I run out of content), each week I’ll be posting a wedding post—something to hopefully be helpful to those who may be curious, entertaining to others. I wanted to start off by sharing my biggest wedding advice.
BEST ADVICE: I heard this some while in the planning process but I struggled to believe it whole-heartedly until the day of the wedding and I wish I would have believed it sooner. That advice is: “you’re going to end up married. Everything else is okay.” That’s a difficult pill to swallow when you’re spending thousands of dollars on an awesome party that is ripe with opportunities for disaster, but it’s true. You’re making one of the most significant decisions of your life and entering into a covenant between your spouse and God. I enjoy planning a party and had a lot of fun planning my wedding. But I love Joe. The day of the wedding my dress could have ripped (it kinda did) and the food could not have showed up (it did show up and was delicious), and I would have still ended married to the most amazing man I have ever met. It really is all about that covenant you’re making with the Lord and your spouse, and it is good.
