I'll admit, I'm starting to lose it. Between picking our invites and going bridesmaid dress shopping and realizing that our to-do list is only going to grow, no matter how many times we say "eff it", I was feeling overwhelmed. I was worrying about making all the "right" decisions and having our wedding have a cohesive look.
Then I saw this post by Miss Sewing. And I saw this quote:
"Because five years from now, the only person that will remember what they looked like will be you. So do something you love. And because it’ll be a reflection of you, your guests will (hopefully) love it too."
So there it is. So the only question now that matters, from here on out, is, "do I/we love it?" I've been stunned that everyone I have shown our potential invites to has reacted with glee and told me how cute and how very us they are. I had been afraid that people would think they were too casual. People even like my super-easy DIY pocketfold idea. (It's a pocketfauxld, don't worry.)
One of my friends used to tell me, "nobody ever cares as much about your wedding as you do." So maybe I should stop worrying about whether my dress is out of style or won't go with my bouquet or my shoes. Maybe I should start worrying about finding a minister and making sure we sign our catering contract.
